      I was saddened today to read about the demise of Jacques Secrétin, at 71 years of age.

      Secrétin was a great player in his own right, winner of many tournaments, a long-time fixture in the world...

      Well, you gotta flick it. Or you can spin it. You gotta take that extra step before you spin it.

      So say Roula, with fingers aplenty twenty. It is known.

      No, that’s not what the triceps do. They might aid in shortening the stroke and a faster recovery.

      I think a blade can be harder on one and softer on the other side.

      But I don’t think a blade can be flexy on one side, but stiff on the other. Similarly, I don’t think it can have a different...

      I actually don't really understand why one would go for this. At best, you'll get a box of stuff that you may like somewhat, but don't really need and hence have no use for. At worst, you'll...

      Yes, I meant what IB66 wrote. And I don't think it's futile and pointless at all; changing rhythm and pace of rallies is a powerful weapon, that cuts both ways.

      Blocking and countering are not T05's strengths. It's too spin-sensitive and bouncy for comfortable passive blocking (to my taste). That's why I prefer Fastarc-G1, which (to me) is in the same...

      I get the same issue, Pilgrim.
