      Well done. I like playing with SP on my BH too. I play with 802 or 802-40. I haven't tried anything special like Spectol or Warran. I rarely see a good BH loop with SP. Usually BH SP loops are...

      I don't care about ratings or who is #1 although rating systems are interesting from a mathematical perspective.
      The ITTF doesn't seem to want any rating systems they can't control or manipulate for...

      I hit the top of the net and the ball goes long too. This is a curse. This happens to be much more than my opponents.
      So what are we doing that is similar that gets similar results?
      It is time to...

      I suffer from the same problem. Yes, I am usually looking at the opponent's motion after I have estimated where the ball will go.
      However, I blame hitting the top of the paddle on being tired. My...

      Moisture definitely softens woods. That is why blocks of wood are steamed or pulled out of water before peeling into veneer.
      Wood is softened with steam to bend it around frames like building wood...

      People's heads don't spin around or move that fast. They are also bigger and have more features.

      I seriously doubt all those cameras in China are active or that they have enough processing power...

      Today I played with my old Samsonov Alpha with Rakza 7 1.8mm on the FH and 802 1.5mm on the BH.
      I like this combo. I was killing my opponent this week.
      I think that a stiffer blade may be better...

      I have read the researchgate document. The simulation they did is similar to one I did 5 or more years ago. It looks good to me.

      What I notice is that the plastic balls seem harder or more...

      The manufacturer needs to control or use price fixing. Otherwise the dealers will be in a bidding war trying to sell at the lowest prices and there will be little profit.
      We sell products in China....

      What flaws?
      The flaw I see is that the USATT wouldn't have control over the rating system.
      I doubt that the USATT board understands the RC rating system well enough to articulate a flaw.

      I will admit that just about any ranking system is better than none.
      Never let perfection be the enemy of the good.

      However, Many years ago I had a small exchange with David Marcus, the inventor...

      The US rating system is full of fudge factors.
      I would use Ratings Central.

      Many countries already use RC.

      I agree but if the D05 has has only 3% more energy but 22% more height the numbers still don't add up.
      I will wait to debate this more when there is an English translation so I know the actual...

      This doesn't make sense. To hit the ball 22% higher would require 22% more energy. The potential energy is P.E.=mgh
      where m is the mass, g is the acceleration due to gravity and h is the height.

      The I doubt it would take a millisecond. Much depends on the CPU power but the problem can be divided up among X, Y, Z coordinates. However, there is a lot of calculations that must be done.

      It won't take millions. A few hundred should be plent.


      1 case is not enough.
      1000000 balls of the same trajectory and spin will not teach the computer much.
      100 different balls will teach the...

      I doubt a robot like that will ever be affordable to any that isn't rich. A national team will probably be able to afford one will probably not buy one because people will be better. Why?

      The machine is getting better. It is obvious that a human will have a tough time trying to play more consistent than the robot. The robot will tire out the human.

      Since I have the same LP 0X and paddle as PushBlocker, I know it is difficult to block fast serves to the BH without the balls bouncing fast off the table. If would be better to servo fast top...

      The "bald" guy is Olivier Mader AKA PushBlocker. He is well known in the US. He was Florida state champ in 2010.
      I have seen this video before. I have seen most if not all of PushBlocker's videos...

      I do agree that someone needs to monitor the trainee's strokes if using a robot. The robot will not tell you if your strokes are wrong. Robot will help with the speed and stamina. The robot never...

      The problem with frictionless anti is that you can do little with it. It is hard to be offensive with frictionless anti because it is not possible to put much top spin on the ball or changes the spin...
