    It was not so bad. I really hope, eventually, no bad taste remains in the mouth in anyone of us!

    BB, in another thread you said it's all about speed. I understood it so that you speak about speed of the bat at the moment of contact. And I very much agree. The swing is like a rotation, it has...

    I've only played with Rakza 9 shortly on friend's blade. It is very bouncy, due to bubbly sponge. I really don't like this kind of rubbers. Some people do like it. The sponge on Rakza X has smaller...

    Rakza 9 is pretty bouncy. I have Rakza Z max and Rakza X 2.0 on XVT ZL Koto. If you do bounce test, Rakza X is a bit bouncier than Rakza Z. This week I glued new Rakza Z and X (both max) to friend's...

    I don't have any documentation, but physically it makes sense for me. You know in the sense, more energy on a short scale means more chaos, means less consistent.

    But take e.g. darts. Try to hit...

    Yes, I agree. I try to keep the elbow close to body, or the upper arm vertical - if not, the shoulder muscles can't be relaxed. Both your suggestions, the wide stance and the elbow position, are...

    Is it possible that you freeze because there is simply not enough time to react, because you are too near the table? Or would you say you think there was enough time and you still freeze?

    Also,...

    Fast rubber may help you in producing fast shots, but it will not help you much with producing a lot of spin - that is on you regardless speed-glue era or not - here not the rubber but your own hand...

    That explains it. I knew you made some changes in technique and even had a problem/pain in the hip. But I didn't infer that it was connected with negative emotions, although when one thinks about it,...

    I like his approach very much, thanks for sharing, vik. I don't care whether he is American or Eskymo, and also I don't judge whether he is better than chinese or korean.

    Allow me an alternative angle :-) The change is not always 180 degree turn-around, the amount of change matters, nothing is rigid. The technique should feel right, mainly to the player self. Ideally...

    Haha, this is a good one, BB.



    They mean it in the "Archimedes lever" sense. They mistakenly consider the ground as something truly stable :-)

    Even expressing this kind of disappointment or low-point requires courage and fight spirit. So keep your fight. In reality it is not that you can't win, it is that you can't lose.

    Perhaps the best is to simply buy one H3 (maybe hardness H37, H38 or H39) and try it. This will give you certainty. The commercial version is quite cheap.

    I recommend TTNuri's videos on FH topspin mechanics, just in case you didn't go through it yet. Much better than my attempts to get the points across. There are also visualizations...

    Yes. The left hand will stay down not because you consciously let it stay down, but as a result of the movement. It can go a bit up. More important is to get a bit more from that chest stretch.
