      I like watching matches in person. When CoVID was not the universe we were confined in, seeing people play at lots of different levels was, and will be again, a great experience.

      That was a spambot you were thanking. I was waiting for it to have enough posts to post links. It posted links. Now it is gone.

      Nah. He wouldn't really want your blades. I am pretty sure he would just be happy to meet another old school penhold player.

      And, yeah, he is from NYC.

      What ever you do, don't let OSPH see those photos or he may want to hunt you down to get his hands on your blades. :)

      Wouldn't Seamiller grip have the effect of giving you a western grip on FH, or close to it?

      If you want something as fast as the Primorac Carbon none of the blades you mentioned are even remotely close to as fast as the Primorac Carbon. I would stick with what you have.

      Or, you might...

      This is good info. May I ask what caused you to wake up a thread that has been dormant since 2017?

      Muggsy Bogues, not very tall. Spud Webb actually, a fairly normal height (only slightly shorter than Ma Long). If what you were saying was really true, these guys would not be the exception and...

      I think the greats adjust to whatever height they are, use the advantages, overcome the disadvantages, and still become great.

      Xu Xin is not short. Wang Liqin was not short. FZD is kind of not...

      Can you define "tonicity" based on the way you are using it?

      Are you suggesting that taller people have less muscle tone? Does that mean they are not as strong or capable of athletic...

      Ma Long can be very creative in how he plays. The shot bzing is referring to is pretty sweet, artistic.

      I am just not sure Ma Long needs to be compared to anyone based on that shot. There are...

      To me it is evident LSS is goofing around and having fun. Every so often he slips in a few points where he ups his game a little. But a lot of that is clowning around. I mean, going in for a push...

      Yeah. Leaving the arm there and serving under it actually really adds to the motion of the serve. It is much harder to serve without that.



      I honestly think this is just biomechanics. If...

      IB66, in truth, the way the rules are written, the only vantage point from which one could see if the ball was truly hidden is the vantage point of the receiver.

      I give commentary and explanation. Sometimes just having it straight from the horse's mouth is good. :)

      What is that one serve that you HATE

      Yep. The actual phrase used is: "cannot be hidden from the receiver."

      This is a video that is worth watching more than once, maybe 3 times, and trying to figure out what it actually means.
