    The thickness of the two blades may also be a factor. The thinner blade has more flaex and hence better at looping. The thicker blade is more solid and thus hits harder but the lack of flex means you...

    Actually I didn't cut the handle on that for two reasons. The primary was that I was not that aware of blade dynamics and physics or mechanics back ten so was not very well versed with head-heaviness...

    If you play by badmointon rules then it could become a real workout for the single player and more fun. I would pair the strongest single player against the weaker players as a doubles team and...

    Could shadow table tennis be an answer to at the issue with your right shoulder/deltoid. I know it is not the same as multiwall but it could help warm up your shoulder? If yes, then maybe you could...

    All you can do is prolong the life a bit. There is no way to vacuum seal them because even the ziplock bags will retain a certain amount of air when you seal them. But in answer to your question,...

    These are all expensive blades, but if you are careful with your equipment, and don't change rubbers too often they should last you for years. To minimize the damage to the blade caused by...

    I think this is the best piece of advice for you. Especially the second point. My game improved by leaps and bounds once I stopped worrying about losing points.

    If you are not an advanced player then I don't think you should be getting a faster setup. You can generate a lot of speed with the Acoustic if you work on your technique and the speed of your...

    Nothing wrong with it. It is a very good quality blade but is on the stiff side, and not very good for looping. It is good for close to the table play, good for blocks also. I own one and have played...

    Maybe you could describe your playing style a bit and tell us what kind of game you have, what you want from a blade and your level? We would guide you better for sure after that.

    If it is a high ball that you know will rise, I would think you have time to adjust and turn it into a forehand. Unless you are a backhand oriented player I would say turn it into a forehand.
