      The NFL has an excessive celebration rule that is enforced at the referee's discretion. Maybe TT could just do that. It probably wouldn't be more chaotic than discretion in calling serves.

      I personally dislike loud choing. I wish it would stop.. But I also have contempt for ITTF ability to write a rule in language precise enough to be enforceable in a fair way. We have lotscof...

      I was also amazed by this at the 2017 WTTC. Of course my seats on one day were close to an entire regiment of ZJK fangirls.

      It doesn't seem to be based on career trajectories of any recent top players, including Ma Lin, Ma Long, Wang Liqin, Xu Xin, and others. FZD is better now than he was at 18. When did Ma Long win...

      For reasons given just now by Ib66.

      I don't think it is disrepectful and I think he was coached to do it as a young kid.

      But I also think ITTF should put their foot down on this.

      World top 20 players are said to be around 2900 US. All the same, a 2600 player is very very very good. About 100% of players at that level trained hard from childhood with the intent to become a...

      I have played against seven different US team members who played at the WTTC, possible because six of them have lived in my city. One of these guys also played at the Olympics. I was coached by...

      Well, since there is no doubt that you will fail I think I'll not be joining you on your journey. Consider your journey a success if you win some club tournaments. That is realistic.

      Just out of curiosity, have you ever played against someone at that level?

      Now we have a much slower ball and rallies are even shorter

      Easy. They'll send you $49 of junk you won't ever use. Crappy paddles with crappy rubber and crappy balls, probably cellulose acetate junk.

      It keeps the wood from splintering when you remove rrubber to change it. It protects the wood. TT11 does a good job.

      Also people have already mentioned the role of Rule 20, even if they didn't quite word it the right way. (The correct number of blades to own is n + 1).

      But people should not lose sight of Rule...

      Indeed, Carl has drunk from the Wisdom of the Table Tennis Gods. Rule 88 certainly is the source of much that is profound. In some people it can produce Visions. From that can come Wisdom...

      In that case you should just pick the one you think looks best in your budget range because in terms of play it isn't going to matter for you which one you choose..

      Maybe. But I'm of the opinion that if ITTF hypothetically made a rule that tacky hard rubbers are illegal, in a few years the Chinese would produce a Tenergy using world champion. They simply care...

      Its been about three years since I was last in China. So I have no idea what really new rubbers are being used. They did have some softer Chinese rubbers. I have no idea if ESN rubbers would be...

      Because my wife is from China, I have traveled to China many times and have played and been coached there, and I have seen how kids are taught.

      One thing to keep in mind is that the price of...

      Two longstanding critiques of Dandoy is they don't contact you when something is back ordered and they are terrible at responding to email. The stuff you ordered will come. Eventually.
