      The dwell time, contact time, can be quite long. People have posted videos where good players can catch the ball and hold it on their paddle. This provides for a potentially infinite dwell time.

      I am one of those old men that will play with blocking or chopping LPs. Yes, top spin serve are easy to get back unless you mix the serves up with short back spin serves.

      Very good! I wonder what camera was used to record the video.
      It is easy to see the players mistakes.
      Editing a video like this takes time.

      Put a small package of desiccant in you paddle case. However, that will not help much after you take the paddle out but then nothing will.

      I am going to forward this to my practice partners saying this is how we should practice.
      It is the consistency while hitting at speed that amazes me. Timing, angles and speed of the stroke must...

      My first coach said something like that. Make the opponent beat you. If it looks like the opponent will not beat himself then you are in for a serious game.

      This really p!$$e$ me off if I must chase the ball when they miss. I don't mind the loops. It lets me know what they have got. I am a FH counter hitter so no problem. The problem I have with most...

    11. I bought some R47 2mm FH and BH to try out on my TB ALC

      There are already good videos on R47 but I have comments.
      I was intrigued by the notion of a thinner top sheet. I am usually not impressed with rubbers that aren't much different from others.
      I...

      No! I play for the exercise.
      The AI probably cheats anyway like it does in many computer games.

      I am a fan of the Rakza rubbers I have always found them to be consistent. I can show videos of me playing showing FH obvious loops with Rakza 7 Soft Max if desired.

      This is just more marketing hype. What has change? There is the coefficient of restitution, COR, in the normal and tangential planes. Are the rubbers faster or spinier? Is faster a good thing if...

      That isn't very hard because the ball is hit so high. It also isn't very practical. However, I have seen a video where Adam Bobrow did it once in a real match.

      I have found T25 and T05 to be very long lasting. I still have a paddle with 6+yo T25 mounted on it. It still plays well.

      It is amazing what a busy mind can do when there isn't TV or video games to distract and waste time.

      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...
