    This maybe just me, but I like to toss the ball a bit higher. It's counter-intuitive, but one of the main things that impedes my spin production is tensing up and ultimately being anxious about all...
  2. I find, because I don't have really good...

    I find, because I don't have really good acceleration of the racket through the ball, nearer the tip is better. The linear speed of the racket is fastest here, so imparts the most spin. Margin for...

    How do you feel about eBay? That will give you better buyer protection. Honestly that blade from tt11 sounds perfect, but the rubbers are less than ideal. If you're going the eBay route, the...

    Yes! That blade looks absolutely perfect. Definitely get the free lacquering service. But wow tt11 doesn't have much rubber choice! Bought blades and clothing, but I would look to get better, cheaper...

    Huiesons seem to be really fast (hard woods, carbon etc). Could be wrong though. I am certainly in favour of keeping the rubbers and getting a more suited blade. Blades are more important than...

    Okay lots to unpack here. 35-40 is tough but is possible. My first racket was about the same. You're definitely looking at Chinese equipment. Rubbers I'd say are fairly easy: you can't go wrong price...

    So it seems like a newer packaging of provincial blue sponge. It had the shiny reflective purple packaging and no neo layer. I got it from Burn Store. They sell a lot of DHS stuff so seems legit....

    I got a verified provincial non neo blue sponge from AliExpress for 30£. About twice as expensive as commercial but seems to be lasting quite a bit longer and out performs commercial in most regards....

    This is all really useful. I was most interested in serves, and I think I like suds' idea of serving from the middle makes a lot of sense. If I use hook/reverse pendulum to their LP, it sets up bh or...

  10. Tactics against left-handed LP players

    Or technically, opposite-handed players. I am Right handed. I will write this from a right handed point of view.

    I've seen quite a lot about how you should serve long no spin to LP side. This...

    Love the blades! But I have some technique questions regarding Rpb. It's becoming my best shot opening, blocking, smashing etc. However, I find it quite difficult blocking/attacking straight down the...

    I often find that people over compensate for sidespin so pendulums go to fh side. Doing reverse pendulum/shovel starting from middle of the table is my preferred method. This was the main service and...

    I remember reading recently that the change to the plastic ball also changed the size of the ball. Before, when celluloid 40, the size discrepancy was between 39.5 to 40 and the plastics had to be...

    You have to compete in international things to get an world ranking. I wouldn't pay too much attention to ranking anymore. Follow the players you see have potential or just like for whatever reason...

    Wang Zengyi and Tin Tin Ho play short pips and rpb pH. Tin tin uses stigma royal and I think zengyi used 802 or 802-40. Pretty sure HZW used 802 his whole career.

    So I think what's most amazing about this change in the men's style is that it's happening too fast for people to keep up. I may be completely wrong but no matter what level, most people have fairly...

    I've noticed a lot recently, that barely anyone adjusts their serve or receive during the toss. This is a really good way of starting mindgames and creating errors. For example, I'll stand heavily...

    Regarding his training, I have no doubts has it pretty damn good for TT specifically. As a 14 y/o though, I doubt he has optimal fitness training. He's still growing! When he's able to fully develop...

    This video is super informative. WH also states hes puts pressure on index for RPB, which started my experimentation with thumb and index pressure. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jOp5k2QuFrc...

    I think it depends a lot on the size of your hands and the diameter of the blade. for example, on smaller handles I come close to touching thumb to index and with my current blade (MEO), there's a...

    From spinniest to speediest I've read skyline 2, h3, H2, skyline 3 but not a huge difference. Sponge is the same only pimple geometry is different.

    I change my grip based on the shot a bit. I'm more WH dominant but if the player is lobbing I'll switch to fingers straighter for more power.

    if the trajectory is high over the net, close the angle of the racket. If the trajectory is okay, soften the grip.
