    This is a shame. Lodro is one of the few sane people I have found on this forum but he as given up.

    Zeio used the term eccentric. This is a good term that describes what you just said more succinctly.



    YES! Force x time is an impulse. Since force varies over the contact time is it better...

    I have noticed there is a difference between TT players on forum and in clubs. The ones that play in clubs will play with a rubber until it is pretty much worn out. They don't talk about things they...

    The impact supplies the energy. The paddle will still vibrate a little after the impact.


    I didn't say that.

    Why? The "clicky" sound just means you are flat hitting too much and not brushing enough. Also, sound is energy that isn't going into the ball.

    This is true to a point. I have a video of my Toxic 5 being impacted by a TT ball. It is easy to see the Toxic 5 is being pushed back and doesn't rebound or maintain contact with the ball so all...

    Just a sanity check.
    Movies are displayed a 24 frames per second. Most people cannot see the flicker. That means most people would only see a blur at 24 rps at best.

    I find it amazing. You guys don't listen. Oils don't compress much. It is the gas in the rubber foam that is springy. You don't fill your tires up with oil, you fill them up with air.

    NO! It is a sometimes! Depending.

    I can easily see the spin on the ball, by looking at the label, if it is not spinning too fast. What is to be determined is what is too fast. I am sure most...

    How long does "boosting" last?
    Do you still think "boosting" is still effective after sitting in the wrapper for 2 months?

    The short answer is yes.
    There is no force or impulse that T05FX can generate that either Rakza 7 or Rakza 7 soft can't.
    I like both . When I get Rakza 7 soft I get max thickness. When I get...

    I am 69. There is no magic that will help. The best you can do is to try to change the tempo of the game. Looping rallies back from the table is not going to work.

    I was in the same place 13 years ago. Don't buy a cheap paddle . Spend at least $50. Rubber will come and go but a good paddle is a keeper.
    Don't buy a paddle that is too fast. Offensive-- is a...

    Yes, but that assumes the faster ball that you hit will be returned.

    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.
