  1. My experience switching from shakehand to penhold

    You FH and BH strokes are already looking very solid, better than lots of CPen playing for years If you play with RPB with no TPB, you may try gluing your rubber all the way to the handle, almost leaving no gap in between. I have heard it has better leverage / grip and power on BH since your...

    I started with a DHS 4 star racket when I am still in high school. Played till the rubber was completed dead and peeled it off and started just playing one-sided penhold. Then I assembled my first racket, I found an old Yasaka Extra paired it with Donic Baracuda on forehand and Xiom Asia on...

    Yasaka Penhold handles are slimer and more comfy than Butterfly and Stiga if you have smaller hands. Regular YEO can definitely satisfy the needs of an amateur player. In China, they also have YEO Pro (red) and YEO Pro (black) which have better material, finishing and heavier than (Pro Black is...

  12. Has anyone tried Yasaka Rising Dragon?

    Just returning to TT after a long break, I need some advice on my penhold set-up. The blade and the backhand rubber are pretty much set. I am struggling to find a forehand rubber for YEO, I have heard the Stiga DNA dragon grip is the best alternative to H3 without needing booster but it is...
