      Could this be a case of the rubber not having a very high ceiling for spin?

      Hit last night ... felt ok, didn't have a chance to really work on stuff i wanted to work on -- too many members.

      Had a chance to hit with one of the coaches there for the first time. A few weeks ago, he watched me hit and gave me a tip on my TPB punch/block. Something I knew but forgotten over the years or a bad habit formed since my 'unretirement'. Good reminder/tip.

      Last night, he watched me hit and gave me a tip on the RPB ... to add spin... i've been working my flat hit a la SH BH stroke and RPB block/punch since i started learning the RPB on my own. i still wanted to work this a bit longer. recently, monster advised at this point in my RPB, i should start spinning. Partner took a break and i hit with the coach. He needed to warm up, so light FH to FH ... then he started really ripping some of his FH flat hits, i may have surprised him with my somewhat consistent FH blocking. I am not going to lie, i felt the Tenergy FX-80 did ALL the work. I am happy with blocking, I am getting to a point I am used to the tensor rubber given I used to use tacky rubbers. I thinki I got used to MX-P also, the FX-80 seems a tad bouncier than MX-P for me.

      He then started FH looping and slowly amped it up ... really like the FX-80, low trajectory blocks. FH blocked for ~10 mins, then he FH blocked for me. I started 2 flat hit strokes and then went into short stroke close to the table loop, slowly amping it up. He misjudged some of my loops and resorted to BH blocking from his FH side.

      Then my friend K said i was hitting too long and i let him jump on.

      Still slightly long on my short-stroke close to the table loop, but my stroke is much shorter than my long stroke away from the table loop ... as NL advised i need to meet the ball much sooner, still waiting for it to drop somewhat.

      Yes, it isn't very spinny. But I can't say anything for sure, as I've tried it right after gluing and only for 1 session

      last night, 2 clubmates/friends wanted to check out a new club that opened. one of them knows one of the coaches there. so i tagged along.

      had fun, i hit with the coach for a little, hit with my 2 clubmates a little.

      then the coach asked me to hit with his student. she was very consistent and steady. she is SH and her FH is what i need to work on ... close-to-the-table, short stroke, each FH shot has a little sidetop spin, aggressive, not going 100%, but she kept at it, i FH blocked her ... i didn't try to FH spin too much with her .... sometimes i FH stroke/flat hit a little, but mostly FH block... we then BH to BH ... i TPB, did not try my unsteady RPB with her ... then she wanted to serve and volley. i pushed mixing in the modern pushing philosophy of back short and the middle as well as my oldschool angled pushing side-to-side. caught her a few times flatfooted. i was thinking serving nospin, but making it look like pendulum sidedown and pendulum down, ball popped up a few times and i flathit/smashed it. hindsight is 20/20, i should've tried to loop those balls, but the muscle memory in me went for the smash. on my pendulum downspin and sidedown, they were too long and she was able to BH looped them to my wide FH. Some she made, some she didn't... i was too slow to get over. gotta keep at working my footwork.

      coach observed from the side and said for a player who didn't play for 30 years and only started playing again, i have a decent foundation. i thanked him and his student for the good practice.

      EDIT: I'm not an EJ per se, i have used a few different setups, but i CANNOT describe what the rubbers and blades are like like true EJ ... she checked out the American Hinoki and hit with it a little. She commented that the wood was able to absorb some of the power of the hits... something to that effect. I mentioned the Tenergy rubbers, she said in 3 months they will be replaced, but the blade won't be and it's what's important and its qualities. LOL i have no idea what that means ... i only know with the setup as is now, both my FH/BH blocks against 70-100% shot are being returned with a fast and low trajectory. Truly think the rubber is doing all the work.

      hit for 2 hrs straight, was tired and ready to go home. worked with my regular partner, P, and we warmed up FH to FH, i also worked in my short stroke close to the table loop. Then we served and volleyed. i suggested to him that after the serve to try a controlled slow spinny loop... yeah it will be high, but with spin, it may not be as easy to hit. something that Der_Echte taught me, that i still can't quite get consistent, i rush myself and my shots explained to P that with his fast loop drives, which many missed, he may as well try this. at least get the 3rd ball to land. and after a bit, he understood what i was saying.

      "Mommy" hit with me and after a bit, she served sidedown/down to me, i 2nd ball looped. made a little progress. but not steady yet. i tried to slow my stroke down but muscle memory took over and it was faster stroke.

      about to go home. so tired.

      a member took the table next and looking for a partner, my friend/clubmate "Mommy" egged me on to hit with him. she knew i was fatigued.

      have 2 raw videos hitting with this last partner ... we had already been hitting for a few minutes before i thought to ask if i may video us. i have a lot to work on. i flat hit, i looped a little, i fh blocked. won't comment other than i was pretty tired already. we hit for 30 mins.

      Have at me DTT CCers!

      for new CCers, i'm in black
