    Good strategy. If the new rubber helps, you can celebrate with a nice glass of wine. If it doesn’t help, you can console yourself with one or more glasses...

    There is one other aspect to the whole EJ experience that I don't think has been addressed in this discussion: It's a lot of fun to try different equipment! The great majority of us here play TT...

    I too changed to ST as I found that it is much easier to twiddle with than FL. Prior to this year I also always used overgrips as my hand sweats a lot. My coach encouraged me to try without the...

    I fully support the dispersion of bad or false advice on playing against pips. :-D

    In fact, I’m happy to start it off:
    Long pips players hate when you push heavy under spin to their long pips,...

    I come from a Tennis and Badminton background, and I can tell you with certainty, TT equipment is much more diverse regarding speed, spin etc. then any other racket sport. Yes there are many...

    That's great news, because presently it's a little head heavy. Was it difficult to make the conversion? I'm a little useless when it comes to modifying things... :-D

    I don't know of any other sport where the equipment you use has a greater impact on how you play, for better or worse. For example, if your setup is too fast, it can hurt your development, technique...

    Thread Suppression

    Speaking on behalf of all long pips players, we would prefer this thread on how to beat us stay buried, and not be revived.

    Thank you for your understanding. :-D

    I only started playing with the settings last night, so I still need to tweak them, but this is what I have so far:
    Bounciness - 59
    Spin - 70 (Completely off)
    Throw Coefficient - .75

    I've only...

    I personally believe we need a support group for recovering EJ's.

    When you have settled for the foreseeable future on a specific blade and rubber, it feels like there is a big void in your TT...

    Now I'm really jealous. haha We are lucky here if we get a slice of pizza, not that you'd want to eat it when competing. I've been to tournaments where they don't even have water for the...

    Ok, just played with the paddle adaptor for the first time and it is a game changer. Makes the game even more realistic. In real TT, I play long pips on one side and inverted on the other. With...

    It was actually Kevin that suggested the Port Orford Cedar, and made the 2 blades for me. We played in the same club. Weight wise they came in at 110g. To get them to that weight, he shaved them...

    If you slap your 1-ply on your leg, there’s a 50/50 chance you’re going to break it. It would be rare for a multi-ply blade to break this way.
    I use this example because that is exactly what...
