    Your wrist is not adding anything to the stroke. Otherwise to me it looks okay. Not amazing, but okay. Like everyone else said, you are very tense.

    Try to let your wrist swing freely and don't...

    Judging a player's level by their loops alone will cause you to lose very many matches.

    If the guy is a blocker, and his block is ~2200, he is a 2200 player. The defender in my example is 2100...

    1) by forcing myself to change direction, i introduce higher risk of errors.

    This guy is such a tool. Seriously "Ban me" is the most useful thing he has ever contributed to a TTD thread. Please ban him.

    I would actually vary it first. Like I typically serve a no spin first, before using heavy backspin. If they pop up the no spin and you kill it, then you serve backspin and they net it, their...

    It is definitely the height of FZD that is best. Or of ML. Perhaps that of WLQ. Or even RSM. Possibly LGL.

    So definitely between 168cm and 185cm is the best height for men.

    1) Never prioritize theoretically optimal technique over what actually works in points.
    2) The best return is dependent on both your skills and your opponent's.
