    Come on GUYS! The average high school soft ball pitcher can throw a soft ball under handed at 55 mph or just short of 25 m/s. Now assume a TT player can swing a paddle that fast. That better be...

    You have the right idea but you used the diameter of the ball instead of the radius. The radius is 0.02m
    10 rev/sec*2*PI *0.02m=1.256 which is half of what you got.
    My point is that 1.25 m/s is...

    I just looked at your second video. It is better. It would be better to see some playing for point rather than just hitting the ball back and forth.
    Can you make good strokes under time pressure?...

    At higher levels you may not have time to twiddle. Also, the benefit isn't that great. I have played with LP 0X and anti. It is harder to attack with anti and especially LP 0X. I twiddle when...

    It is misspelled German.



    hoid must be misspelled or slang. I don't know what word it should have been.

    There is hope. I see you are making a mistake that is very common. You are not...

    There are some plastic balls that have a seam but there shouldn't be a seam with roto molded balls unless the two halves of the mold don't fit together perfectly. None of the plastic balls I have,...

    The plastic balls are made using a process called roto molding. The plastic is put into a mold and then it is rotated in a gimbal type of machine that rotates the mold and 2 or possibly 3 axes in...

    Are you guys saying that my bank FORCES tabletennis11 to make me go through this procedure? So far, this has only happened when ordering from tabletennis11. What are they authenticating? It isn't...

    I haven't ordered rubbers from tabletennis11.com for a while. During that time I got a new card with an updated expiration date and CVV. The tabletennis11 website said it my card was acceptable...

    The TTD forum is terribly slow to accept new posts. I think what we did is clicked then waited a long time, more than 15 seconds, and then clicked again because nothing happened. If you cloick...

    It is you that doesn't understand "breaking in". You can't define "breaking in". It is like a religion to you.

    I can define "breaking in" as applied to TT rubbers.
    "breaking in" is a misnomer. ...

    Can anybody tell us what happens to the rubber when it is has been "broken in"?
    Exactly what changes?
    Has anybody measured the changes?
    I think it is more TT non-sense.

    I do agree that rubbers...

    Why? You didn't say whether your returns tend to bounce high or low. Normally they will bounce high when return a top spin ball. A high ball should bounce high enough for a light of sight kill...

    Taxes are lower in the US that in Sweden but the US is trying to find new ways to tax people.
    Also, the market is bigger in the US.
