    I am not making any bets. I am just saying, it could be the case and he does not have to be super high level for it to be the case.

    He could also play Tennis and have really good impact power...
  2. Does not have to be that high level to have the...

    Does not have to be that high level to have the right contact for that. He just has to be very well versed in looping with H3 and have a decent loop.

    Being high level has much more to do with...

    Now I will talk about Sandpaper. I know a guy who is about 2700 who is amazing at playing HardBat and Sandpaper. He could probably compete at a decently high level in those tournaments like The...
  4. I am going to tackle that issue of why go with...

    I am going to tackle that issue of why go with spin first when developing a backhand for an amateur player and I am going to come at it from a different perspective. But I think both Ritchey's and...

    If you know how to contact the ball with H3 to really use the topsheet to its full potential H3 can give you some pretty amazing shots even if it is minimally boosted, or not boosted. It is how you...

    Since the OP's question was for people with decent level BH, can you show some footage of your BH topspin?
  7. If you look at the footage of your BH, you are...

    If you look at the footage of your BH, you are kind of banging into the back of the ball. It is a little like a slap rather than a drive or a loop. It is way better than it was just a few weeks ago...

    Definitive Buying Guide? One thing I would say is that NOBODY can do that since everybody feels things differently. This is part of why those reviews on Revspin are so besides the point. You don't...

    [/p]Despite the statement of 8 months playing, I believe that means 8 months of playing after not having played for 10, 15 or more years....I can't remember the number but I believe he played when...

    I don't know if they have changed their packaging. But back then Tenergy was not packaged in air tight wrapping. There were air holes in the packaging spaced a standard distance from each other. I...

    Racket angle can trick you. You actually do need to practice seeing the spin on the ball, the bounce of the ball, the trajectory, if the ball kicks or slows on the bounce, if there is a curve to the...

    Oh, zip lock bag is probably as good as you can do, to slow the process if you decide to open them and then save them for later. But it won't be as good as that packaging the rubber is in.

    I am...
  13. If it is a factory tuned rubber, the booster will...

    If it is a factory tuned rubber, the booster will evaporate in the course of a few months left in a zip lock bag.

    If it is not boosted, you will likely not notice the difference, but there will...

    Yep. Rubber oxidizes. Exposure to air causes oxygen molecules to attach ontothe long chains of the rubber molecules and over time makes them less elastic. A simple example is a rubber band that has...

    It is interesting to me that you ask a question and answer it in your post.

    If there is a weird dead feeling and it feels like the rubber isn't actually attached......then......there is a weird...
  16. Yeah. Some of what Michael is asking is just...

    Yeah. Some of what Michael is asking is just what a real coach would work on with you when they watch you play matches. Trying to learn by yourself is like the long slow method. A good coach will...

    Just info that may be worthwhile: 1600 rated player in European rating systems is probably a higher level than a USATT 2000 level player's level. 1600 may be more like 2200-2300 in USATT.

    So,...

    Yep. They reset faster. They watch what you do with the ball, what you are ready for, what you are not ready for. A pace that feels like it makes you rush is a slow pace for something whose level...

    And that is why you should use your own judgement. There is no formula. But you will know when it is time to change rubbers if you are paying attention.

    If he is 2000, he is not even bothering to use his strengths against you and is just reading what is open while you are playing.

    The way to change your strategy is to use the matches you play...

    I really don't understand how these kinds of ideas come into your head.

    Just use the rubber till it is dead and then change. You should be able to feel when it is no longer that great.

    And since he is using H3N, that does not exactly apply to what MZ is using. But how frequently MZ boosts, and how much boost he uses each time on his H3N, that could effect how long the sponge will...

    Yeah. This just sounds like something you need to work on and practice. You can work on it with your coach. But these are basics. It is fun to talk about being a looper. But if you have trouble...
