      I would like to know what Chinese style is.
      The top Chinese players are very good and top athletes. That is their style.
      There isn't a magical/mystical way of hitting the ball. There is a...

      Take a deep breath and relax.
      I can assure you that this new rubber cannot generate any impulse that previous rubbers can not,
      I other words, don't fall for the hype.

      The first thing to do is to be able to position the return board so it is back from the table a bit to simulate the real timing between when you hit the ball and when the ball returns. After that...

      Ditto the comments above. Inverted strokes don't work. Hitting the ball just as it reaches about net height is mandatory because if you wait for the ball to bounce to the top of its trajectory then...

      I play TT for the health of it now. It is too bad the P.T. Barum is correct. Too many are suckers for the latest TT fad.

      I have tried to explain dwell time but that thread got deleted and I was...

      I agree that your values seem to be correct.
      What I think is awful is the robot interface that has spin is RPM instead of RPS and speed in KPH instead of meters/second.

      In the TT world we deal in...

      I have found a complete lack of of engineers or scientist on TT forums.
      If there are any they won't work for peanuts.

      I like the P.T. Barnum quotes
      "No man ever went broke overestimating the...

      The ratings for rubber are marketing lies.
      Any true rating would show the normal and tangential coefficient of restitution at different speeds.
      TT players are very gullible. They think the next...

      There is nothing wrong with your Samsonov Alpha. Put some Rakza 7 or even H3 Neo on the FH.

      I understand the obsession with equipment, but believe me. Being in shape, technique and practicing is...

      Mog, I am amused by all your numbers. When were you last calibrated?

      Don't you think you are making too much of this linear blade theory?
      You are chasing small stuff and ignoring the big stuff. ...

      The tackiest rubber I have played with was Apollo. The first batch was extremely tacky and could hold a ball up for most of a minute, but the next batches were an awful disappointment. The sponge...

      The formulas for computing arc length are useless until you know what dy/dx is.

      There are a couple of things that determine the trajectory. Gravity, air resistance and the Magnus effect. Which...

      Tackiness does not add spin. It does add grip while brushing.

      I don't think Der Echte was saying he gets back 90% of his ball but it is a nice goal.
      I am a numbers guy so think about this.
      If my opponent gets back 2/3 of his balls then I only need to get back...

      I agree with Mart1nAndersson about hitting the ball thinner. This way there will be less speed but more spin and hopefully the same amount of energy. This is best but harder to do. It is easier to...

      I play close to the table most of the time but I have won a lot of points by dropping back when I know I screwed up so the opponent can make a good shot. Getting back allows me time for a counter...

      Playing again, but....

      I have been playing for 3 weeks now after 3 months of not playing at all. My play sucks and whereas I was a fore hand player before I am now a BH player. My mobility sucks too. I am 67 so you...

      OK, now I am not holding back. I have people describe me as being one in 100,000. The people on the TT forums as suffering from dunning-kruger. When all those idiots make their first million they...

      So you won't call these people stupid or idiots?
      You know I would.
      I am still isolated because I am a high risk person.
      I am beginning to think we should simply let people get their Darwin awards...

      The masks are good because they reduce the spread but they are not perfect. I think the initial loading is important. Most of us are able to fight off a small infection before the virus grows too...

      I listened to this. I agree with most of it. However, I would have asked some harder questions. I didn't see where they were talking about conspiracy but they were challenging policy. They...

      I don't think it is the message you disagree with. It is the messenger. Sometime I think of McCoy being irritated by Spock in Star Trek.

      Ditto the points above about proning and initial load. I am interested because I am in the high risk group.
      However I can't do anything about the medical aspects because that is not my field of...

      1080p at 60 FPS is good. It is also good if the camera generates an .mp4 file but standard formats are OK. The cameras don’t compress the video well if that is a concern. I have A Go Pro but using a...
