    One of the clubs I played for used some Xushaofa balls, I found them to be okay, but sometimes felt that spin levels weren’t as high as I thought they should be!! Could just be me though !!!

    Hi Langel,

    Do you know if any TT companies make their own seamless balls now, rather than use the Minkow Factory?

    Maybe!! generally there is a curve for back/side or top/side, it can be harder to produce an almost straight flight with lots of side spin !!

    Hi,
    a very pure side spin serve can have a fairly shallow curve in its flight (either left or right) have little sideways kick from the bounce but have loads of side spin on the ball.
    This is due...

  7. Hi BB, Is there an optimal bat angle and swing...

    Hi BB,
    Is there an optimal bat angle and swing plane for producing both most speed and spin?
    so if you're bat angle is 45 degrees would the best swing plane be 45 degrees as well?

    Cheers,

    As far as ‘rolling the wrist’ is concerned I’d agree that it’s pretty pointless!!
    bat angle at contact is exactly that!!
    bat angle after contact is meaningless!! For example a ‘fake motion’ as...

    Hi Ritchie,
    I’ve seen some vids where the coach advise to pinch with the fingers for serving, it’s supposed to increase the racket speed therefore increasing spin potential, the timing of the...

    I think that a good serve not only produces a weak return, it should also produce a ‘predictable’ return of serve, in general terms. If you know that the ball is likely to be returned in a certain...

    Hi Baal,

    hopefully that’s what the clip is trying to show, one motion with different contact points within that motion. Side spin is always gonna be there, back spin and top spin may not be...

    So true Der, !!!
    Having a nice relaxed grip and allowing thumb and index finger to control the bat is key, the other 3 fingers, in general terms, are used more for a hard grip, especially the last...
