    Players do not hit the ball the same way each time. There are little inconsistencies. These can be measured and a standard deviation can be calculated. That is one way of measuring the control of...

    Don't make it harder than it needs to be. This a problem too many engineers have so they don't even try.
    I could calculate the COR of a paddle by shooting or dropping many balls on a rubber and...

    It impossible to compare Dan to Dan unless a robot was used and Dan had to hit a target using two different rubbers. Doubt the difference using two different rubbers would be statistically...

    Yes, rubber properties will change but not over the period of a match. If the rubber changes that much there should be a rating variability rating for the rubber but so far I haven't seen that. If...

    Not too many. First determine what is constant and what is really variable. Does T05 change? Not within a short period of a match or a day as long as you keep the rubber clean. The blade...

    I was going to start by talking about a player's consistency. Although rubbers can get dirty or old, rubbers are consistent. It is the players that aren't. Good players like Dan are more...

    I bought 3/4 inch bird netting for our club. People liked not having balls go between courts. The bird netting is cheap and lighter than curtains but it doesn't do much for providing a consistent...

    I buy rubbers from tabletennis11. They have get 4 for the price of 3 bargains on many rubbers. I haven't bought a blade for a long time as I have 11 or 12 of them and mainly use only a few of...

    If you hit the ball with the front or top edge of your paddle, your swing to too slow or too late. This happens to me too when I get tired.

    I play with Rakza 1.8mm on my FH sometimes. I currently have 1.8mm Rakza 7 mounted on the FH side of my chopping paddle. I chop better with thinner rubbers. As far a normal play goes, I find...

    I assume you are talking about FH strokes. You talk as if a player only uses a short or long stroke. It depends on the situation and the time available.
    Short strokes would be better as long as...
