    I hadn't heard that term before. My fingers don't seem to slip. This has never been a problem for me. That is why I asked.

    Give a good reason, not an opinion, as to why c-pen is inferior when used with RPB. The ball doesn't care whether it is hit by a shake hands or c-pen paddle.

    Most of what I read above is just...

    I wouldn't spend too much. I use a LKT pro XP top sheet glued to a 1.8mm HRS sponge. Not very expensive or fancy but it works for me.
    Off the shelf I would use Rakza 7 1.8mm

    I haven't posted on this thread so I will now.

    Watch this. You can see Boll almost is whipping the ball with a snap of his wrist and forearm. What is important is the paddle speed at contact. Also, pay attention to what Boll has to say about...

    Timo Boll evaluates a fast and slow paddle.
    The first bounce test is obvious.
    The trajectory test should be done with a machine so the strokes are the same. The same goes for the spin test.

    I agree with others that there is no "snap" to your stroke because you don't bend your elbow. You are too rigid.

    It would have been better if we could see the entire flight path of the balls. ...

    Harder sponge is not the answer.
    Technique is.
    This is fact.

    Another fact is that the optimal rubber was probably created long ago.
    I can't see where anything new is actually new.

    I found Vega Pro to be close to Rakza 7. Maybe a little slower. ( opinion ). If Rakza 7 didn't exist I could be happy with Vega Pro. I haven't played with G-1 yet.
