      +1


      I mean at some point physics have to come into play. This is why so many Japanese players have trouble matching up compared to Chinese. They're naturally smaller and just not on the same...

      Thanks. It was a slower night at club as there was a tournament that same day 2 hours away. So my level of competition I was playing was a pinch down (although the guy here has potential). Anyways, I...

      Currently have 4. Two collect dust and two are ones I realistically play with. Truth be told, I probably should just sell my backup.

      Thought I'd add a note that you'll see this on the intermediate level. Just something to watch out for.

      I've read some others who say serve topspin or some version of side top.

      I don't think the decision between these two things are mutually exclusive.

      I think you can play to your strengths while trying to avoid theirs. If you're an attacker, attack. Play your game. If...

      Yeah something's going on with your order that's out of the ordinary. I placed an order for 2 rubbers a few days ago. Got the email from them that my items have shipped yesterday.

      I wasn't playing during the speedglue era but health risks and all that messing with your rubbers for only 3-5 hours performance? Just not worth it IMO.

      You can play at an intermediate level just...

      I personally think the idea of watching the ball actually hit your rubber is a myth. Rather, you're kinda looking at the ball or the region the ball is in. I think it's partly watching the ball and...

      It's not my best serve but a useful one and I can pull it off.

      When I do this serve I just try to focus on making the 1st bounce middle of the table or close to the net and it's okay if this...

      Yeah it's a hard pass on this one. Maybe I just don't get it but it looks like the ball is just fished & lobbed back on with no real exciting or fast shots.

      A good question to ask. Generally whatever sets up for a ball you like factoring in what you opponent can do well and what not.

      If you're a topspin to topspin player (so many of these types at my...

      Agreed. By and large opponents that give me trouble typically are killing me on serve possibly setting up easy 3rd balls.

      So generally i think "just neutralize" on their serve. Whether I'm giving...

      Nicknames I think are by & large corney and something of the past in sports. It's dated.

      This largely influences one's direction. I play close to USATT 2000 and am about 50/50 with one of our club's traveling tournament players who is at that level. (realizing that styles vary. I...

      A good Q.

      I'm a penholder and he likes to serve long & fast to my BH with light backspin. I can loop it with RPB but my % of point wins on that is probably lower than a good TPB push/chop. I get...

      It kinda depends on what you are good at and what your opponent isn't.
