    You need to be a little more specific regarding which Rasanter and Rakza rubbers you are referring to!!
    there are different versions !!

    Good match to watch!!
    HGY seemed to be a little more aggressive with 3rd ball attack and during rallies at the right time. This seemed to give him the edge in the match.

    If you want to go all out gadget geek, there are gluing presses/clamps available!!
    these, when used with a strong glue would probably hold very domed rubbers in place until dry.

    Yeah, agree with Sam, different sponges will react differently and possibly the top sheet also has some say on this. So a softer elastic rubber may allow itself to stretch more than a harder rubber...

    Cheers BB,

    So the bounce could have an effect? Which could also be affected by the tables surface finish? Skid or grip ?

    Hi BB,

    Regarding the axis of spin, initially is this set by the bat angle and orientation of the bat at the point of contact?
    Does the axis change as the ball travels through the air? (Regarding...

    Yeah, I was wondering what the ..... this guy was doing!!
    Ratings would have soared if the girls had doubled teamed him, choked him out and chucked him out!!!

    Not sure they do!! It’s a very popular blade regardless!!

    One of the clubs I played for used some Xushaofa balls, I found them to be okay, but sometimes felt that spin levels weren’t as high as I thought they should be!! Could just be me though !!!

    Hi Langel,

    Do you know if any TT companies make their own seamless balls now, rather than use the Minkow Factory?

    Maybe!! generally there is a curve for back/side or top/side, it can be harder to produce an almost straight flight with lots of side spin !!

    Hi,
    a very pure side spin serve can have a fairly shallow curve in its flight (either left or right) have little sideways kick from the bounce but have loads of side spin on the ball.
    This is due...

    Hi BB,
    Is there an optimal bat angle and swing plane for producing both most speed and spin?
    so if you're bat angle is 45 degrees would the best swing plane be 45 degrees as well?

    Cheers,

    bat angle at contact is exactly that!!
    bat angle after contact is meaningless!! For example a ‘fake motion’ as...
