    I appreciate this is not an “overnight” change, but I hold the bat much lower down on the handle.

    I find it gives me more options down the line, and helps the transition to backhand.

    It would...

    Brokenball, everyone is entitled to express their opinion, even if that opinion isn’t one shared by the masses.

    There has been many comments on this already (I’ve already made a few myself).

    “Better” is subjective in this context, but I personally believe D09c is better than T05 for a number of reasons.

    Simple answer - No.

    More complex answer.....

    If you *can* see it, I'd imagine the standard of play is not particularly high, and the level of spin is very low.

    But even the dead shots at a...

    Hey Enzo,

    With the blade change suggestions, if I'm completely honest, they are all very very similar - If you want to decrease the speed, I would look for something slower.

    I'll be honest, this is a bit of an odd thread now, and I'm not really sure if you want advice/help or not?

    It doesn't take a huge amount of "Googling" to find something that will fit the bill.

    I’m not sure that line of thinking helps your case with “breaking in”, because my definition of “breaking in” a shoe, is certainly not applicable to a new table tennis shoe being too grippy.

    Oh, 100% this!

    New shoes are the worst!
