    If you are a Xu Xin fan, and you really want to use his equipment..... Buy it.

    Nothing else will make you as happy, and you'll feel much happier using Xu Xin's blade over anything else.

    I'd not call it a flat hit - My definition of "flat" would be little spin/attempted spin on the shot.

    It's certainly "topspin", but it wouldn't fall under the "topspin loop" category for me. More...

    Call my cynical...... But I'm not sure the change in speed (assuming the 12.1 vs 11.8 is accurate), is particularly noticeable.

    As Lula said, don't do serves where your 2nd shot is often under pressure.

    Also, Gonzo is probably spot on with the smash route - Without seeing the play in question, if the ball is high and over...

    Firstly, I’d only buy 09c if I had a good amount of disposable income, buying TT equipment brought me joy, or I was a top player who felt like it would help.

    If none of those applied to me, there...

    There isn't much in it.

    The OALC is more like a conventional Butterfly outer carbon blade IMO.

    It's a bit crisper and faster than the HALC which is slightly softer, slower with more control.

    Hey Gozo,

    People have already given solid advice, so I'll not repeat it.

    Never.

    Once it’s close to dead (I usually leave 20-50% life in them), I just replace the rubber with a new one.

    How many people would you expect to come down?

    I would avoid "winner stays on" - It's not inclusive to the people who are improving.

    I bet switching to Dignics 09c on both sides didn't help either - Much slower than the previous rubbers he's been using.
