    This has bern covered before, of course - but many feel that such a “mercy point” is much more disrespectful than an 11-0 game.

    Brand value/perception and product quality are very loosely related at best. The former is a marketing concept, the latter has a real-world connection.

    Butterfly is the obvious A brand, with...

    Some Stiga blades come with a coating, which is actually marketed explicitly as pixie dust by the monniker of NCT.

    Tempted to write something like, they’re very expensive, and you need Ma Long level skills to wield it — but that hasn’t stopped people of lesser stature from shelling out for Viscarias, Super ZLC,...

    When frustrated when I had a hard time mimicking another’s moves, my sensei took me apart, had me sit down, and impressed upon me that there is never just one path to take.

    With that delaminated Koto outer, removing the rubber would be very dangerous?

    This really should be taken care of by Tamasu Inc. (BTY), but if it isn't, wouldn't the next best thing to re-apply...

    One of my G-1's has "THICK" printed on its backside, the other has "MAX". Thick is ~1.8mm, max about 2.0 I've seen reports about a 2.15mm version (supermax?) but haven't seen it on sale anywhere.

    I'm not a defender by any means, but do of course play them. LP players that don't "bump" backspin with their LP do offer (relatively) easy kill options indeed — unless they twiddle.

    In any case,...

    You’re in a good place with two top-notch, but wildly different rubbers.

    Play more. Get a good training partner, or more, and if you can find and afford one a good coach. As rubbers go, humans...

    First tournament! Veterans only.

    Played solidly, constant for six matches. One narrow loss, against a Russisn giant with the softest hands I’ve ever seen and disheartening retrieval to boot. I...

    Props for both! It might not be the hippest of remarks, but I’d say Boll’s BH (outstanding pressure and stability) and Waldner’s (solid, unpredictable) deserve a mention as well.

    I don't think I'd mind that serve all that much. Yes, it's fast, but it's also quite predictable with sufficient good options to handle it advantageously; I actually train with people doing that kind...

    I concur with your analysis, mostly. Cole adapted to your game. You didn't accomodate equally - leading to a slew of poor BH's, and top-to-top rallies in which you didn't dominate anymore.

    I'm not so sure about "most effective", but it's certainly a treat to see XX in action.

    Technique derives from physique, deep down. You need Wang Liqin's build to spin like he does; and I think...

    NL and Ba’al are right of course. As a rallier, though, I actually think it’s become more fun to play. Or a bit less frustrating anyway.
