      Only a burnt offering to the Table Tennis Gods will suffice to save you from their wrath. Perhaps a blade you don't use? This of course affords you the opportunity to buy TWO more (because n + 1).

      People need reminding of rules. No mental games. No complaining. No thanking people. No sweating on the table. No hats. No black socks. No cho-ing ( unless you are paid to win). And more.

      A lot of what people think are reflexes is actually anticipation.

      By the way, in a strict sense, nothing we do in TT is reflex, at least as defined on neuroscience. Reflexes are simple networks, 3...

      Also as your opponent hits random shots at you think about getting better at anticipating where the ball is going from how the opponent's body is set up just prior to his hitting the shot. Good...

      Yes, Iasta is right. It is a pretty much worthless version of speed glue. Pretty much no effect except you may damage modern rubbers.

      The thing I have seen most is people not getting good weight transfer or body rotation (kind of leaning backward when they hit the ball). Also no tactical context for the shots they hit (robot...

      You are all reminded that the correct number of blades to own is n+1 where n is the number you own now. This thread contravenes the spirit of that Rule.

      You are not allowed to even acknowledge the existence of TTX. Study The Rules and obey them. Penance is required.

      Your coach is correct. The key is placement and consistency. You're not going to win many points by adding so much spin your opponent pushes into the net. Instead you will make more errors. ...
