    One thing I found is to try and concentrate on one stroke, as you said about the BH flick/ Bh v under spin opener etc, it’s not only about the stroke mechanics.

    Hi Yogi, good to see you posting again!! Hope all is well.

    TE is similar in speed to Loki Arthur Europe / Asia, the Arthur Diamond Europe is a non tacky rubber, spin is ok but not the highest, faster and fairly bouncy, probably better off with the Donic...

    Hi,
    Rakza Z has a high throw, so shouldn't be an issue to lift backspin with BH flick or BH loop (when behind the table). Not sure what blade you are going to use but Rakza Z can be pretty fast and...

    Hi KT,

    I felt the same when I was younger, At first from beginner level, you can improve quite quickly (over a year, playing and being coached 2 or 3 times a week) but only in a sort of basic way....
