      Hi IB66,

      The technology does exist. However it is against the interests of TT manufacturers to reveal such information to the public.

      I've got about ~8 years of playing time. Pretty confident I'm in the intermediate group. Also pretty sure I'll never break beyond that group ;). Having spent time in China, I might even have to...

      Probably doesn't matter at this point, but Reactor stuff are pretty much all sh!t. Get a Sanwei M8 or Yinhe N11 and 2 sheets of 729.

      Lula has a great point. There's not much chopping to do if his opponents don't even know how to loop properly. And he won't know how to chop "effectively" until he learns for himself the shots he...

      Zyu has a point. Once you get to a certain level, "modern" penhold (as in double inverted) has inherent disadvantages, not the least of which is a larger cross over range than shakehands and finger...

      Are you looking for specific feedback or just general tips?

      If you are just starting out, I recommend learning on single sided first. This way you can use much heavier blades and rubbers while...

      The result is a broken finger on one side and a broken heart on the other. But life goes on, and there is no such thing as re-do's.

      Hi, I've had persistent knee problems in the past. But doctor's opinion is that knee braces only shift your focus, doesn't help with injury prevention.

      If you need to push through the pain and...

      I'm curious, have you experimented with soaking core plies in tung oil or some other varnish? One complaint I have with just about all modern blades is that they are not solid enough. I wanted to try...

      Hi Nate, are those treated kiri cores? something along the lines of varnish soaked? Looks a lot different that the run of the mill stuff.

      I can't tell you the answer. But if you shift your observations from their nationalities to their actual movements, you might get more useful insights.

      Hi Lula, not sure if you still care.

      I had 3 coaches when I was in China. The first 2 worked for the venue and charge 25 EUR per hour for both private and small groups (4-6 people). Gets to keep...

      Considering we can watch 4k 60p on youtube, I wouldn't mind going straight back to 38 celluloid.

      Old Speckled Hen is far from hipster and as straight as they come.

      I recommend anything but Weltenberger bottles. German output is pretty tight..except those from drunk Bavarians.

      Ah, yes, you are right.

      I would love to see a He Zhiwen vs Fan Zhendong video!

      Rules change and there's no point fighting it. Yes, touch play is not as nuanced as before, and maybe it didn't achieve the original objective of lengthening points. But every style had to adapt...

      Unfortunately this is just one of those things you need to get used to doing. Don't be afraid, if your get an accidental rip, it shouldn't take more than 5 mins to re-attach.

      Hi Basmundo,

      If you want to seal your blade, go ahead and do it. Better yet, let Hipnotic do it for you. As long as you don't go overboard with the varnish, gluing should be fine.

      However, long...

      What makes you think the "drive" is extinct? there's plenty of it even at the highest levels. Are you mistaking everything with a modicum of upwards motion for a loop?

      Also, for the same amount of...
