      You are asking too much!

      Revspin is as close as you are going to get in terms of functionality, but the furthest away from being objective.

      Contra.de ratings are the most objective I've seen,...

      Hard, light, good blocks, lower throw, fast.

      Hard and light don't go hand in hand, sorry.

      For everything else, any thoughts on short pips?

      I stand behind Mr. Echte's suggestions of...

      Actually this part is controversial. The ABS balls don't crack as clearly, but they develop hairline cracks and stress creases that severely alter playing characteristics. This happens after just 1...

      Gonna go against the grain but I like the newer balls. Yes the variations are more pronounced, but nothing you can't accustom to after some warm up.

      What they do exhibit, almost universally is...

      Oh, another option is to forget about backups. That way, when it gets broken, you are forced to try something new ;).

      Sooner or later, you will get to the point of having something "good enough"....

      Hi NewTimes,

      The setup seems reasonable enough to me, not excessively fast, and I would say a solid OFF combo.

      If you are curious, stary EJ'ing, its fun and not shameful at all. If you just...

      Hi, I didn't mean to rant on Xiom specifically. After all, DHS also markets Hurricane "Ma Long" and "FZD", I wonder if even these versions are exactly what the named people use.

      What I would be...

      What is it with all these "pro custom made rubbers"? Isn't the idea of ITTF approvals to make the sport more transparent? Doesn't this make their rubbers illegal? Shouldn't these TT brands offer to...

      Hi Jeff,

      I'm curious about the injury that made you switch from penhold. I've been experiencing persistent soreness on the index finger that sometimes last for weeks. Is this something you can...

      I didn't like the G9 very much, but you are right about it being slightly hard yet flexible blade. (To me) its a bit on the slow side, and works better with very hard, but still fairly fast rubbers....

      Sorry to burst your bubble, but if you like the "all wood" feel, then stick with all wood.

      Composite materials can give you higher strength-to-weight ratio, but have much higher vibration...

      Its a combination of ball, rubber, and blade deformation that causes the sound.

      Taking the ball out of the equation, softer rubbers and blades will cause louder pop on low-moderate impact. While...

      You are worrying too much! No, side tape will not affect rubber performance.

      My opinion is leg width is not the focus point but overall stance height. Adjust you leg width, knee bend, buttock bump, and forward lean so that you can maintain comfort and be able to efficiently...

      Then you need to try more! Pick up a sheet of 802-40 (hard sponged 42 degree). If you can't lift with that, then maybe short pimples isn't for you.

      I'm not sure if the Spectol Red is a different topsheet, but I used to use Spectol Speed, it has enough grip to create some arc in loops. If you want versatility, you can always go back to the spinny...

      Hi MOG, there are differing opinions. But, I don't think you should be "lifting" the ball. When there is a choice, short pimple players shgould always choose the more direct option. I used max for...

      I've only owned the first 2. Used the G9 for a few months with Haifu Whale. DHS has this at OFF+, but honestly, considering the flex, thinness, and vibration frequencies, it is an All+ to OFF- at...

      Just an observation, but I think your style would benefit from pips on the forehand. Care for full membership?;)

      I think flat is more so the rubber than blade, H3 is a very high-throw angle rubber.

      Yes, like I said, blade preference is subjective. Use what you like, happy smashing.

      Yes, sorry, way off topic. I was more concerned about forehand looping with short pips, but don't see why it would be different for backhand. Focus on lower racket position, aim for good snap,...
