    I don't care what anyone else says, Liu Weishan's tomahawk serve should be illegal. It's just too OP. It's like DN's tomahawk on steroid.

    It's funny to see Pletea struggle against Harimoto's pendulum serve, only for the table turn completely on Harimoto, who then struggles against Pletea's reverse pendulum serve. Such a dramatic match....

    Judging from most people's reply on this thread, my take-away is that good form is not important at all in tt.
    Surely, consistency and success isn't built on top of good forms derived from endless...

    Ok, at this point I'm just so done with this topic. Sure, Harimoto has the most consistent and best FH ever.
    All must bow down to master Harimoto-san. He's the greatest tt genius to ever emerge from...

    Dude, I don't what you are talking about here. I thought we are discussing Harimoto's FH, and that all top Chinese players have good form with their FH strokes.
    If you really want to argue that not...

    The lack of emphasis on form is exactly why no other county could rival China on table tennis.
    In tt, form is the most important.
    It's true that many players with good form do not become world...

    Again, this is not about functionality or utility. I'm just talking about the form.
    If you want to, you could use tennis FH stroke for table tennis. It works, but is that good form for tt?

    Haha, we can like or dislike any player we want. It's just personal preference.
    To me, CXT and WMY have very similar play style.

    Very good information from zeio as always, but kind of missing the point.
    Just because HT is trying to expand the utility of his FH in more offensive role, doesn't mean his FH stroke isn't flawed.

    At least it's a fairly cheap rubber, just get it replaced. There's no need to obsess over why it happened.
    This could've happened to any rubber.
    But tacky Chinese rubbers usually have thicker,...

    Sigh... technique has nothing to do with puberty.
    By your logic, prepubescent kids are just biologically unable to learn the correct FH stroke.
    If this is true, then why did so many professional...

    To be fair, the bit about Harimoto is kind of true. He's not been doing too well in 2019. Same for Ito.
    But they are both young, no reason to think they won't improve.

    Maybe you are joking, but you shouldn't think of Harimoto as any normal 16-year-old.
    Think of him as WR# 5 player in the world.

    Harimoto raises his elbow too much on shots where he needs more upward brush.
    He's still not using his legs to push forward and upward to power the brushing element of the swing. I feel like his leg...

    I mostly use tabletennis11 for blades and tensor rubbers. If I'm buying Chinese rubbers, I use princett.com - much better price and more sponge hardness selection. 5-day shipping from Hong Kong to US...

    I totally agree with your experience.
    5-ply feels fundamentally different from 7-ply allwood. 5-ply's are generally more flexible and better for looping. 7-ply's are more direct and better for...

    This is such a fascinating topic for me, I might want to start a separate thread.
    I'm just not sure if there's already such a thread existing out there.

    That's a good question. I wonder how many CNT players use 42 degrees H3.
    They always boost the rubber. It probably requires no more booster than the 41 or 40 degrees H3.
