    I feel like i often see fan zhendong and harimoto mentioned in this type of conversation, but even though they're undeniably effective I personally don't like the look of their BH topspins. Would like to hear others' thoughts on which pros have some of the strongest backhands

    Zhang Jike had an excellent backhand.
    Since you’ve also received some answers about the more powerful and modern backhands, I’d also like to nominate Timo Boll.

    His backhand is very controlled and appears to have very high spin. Timo Boll was one of the first two winged loopers I believe, his backhand is basically identical to his forehand and he can do side spin-topspin with it: it’s a thing of beauty in my opinion. Like Federer in Tennis — beautiful, if not quite the best.

    Wang Hao easily has the best rpb (Wong Chun Ting’s isn’t bad either). I’m surprised no one has mentioned Matthias Falck yet as well.

    Thanks everyone for replies so far, some fine looking backhand strokes in this thread.
    Since you’ve also received some answers about the more powerful and modern backhands, I’d also like to nominate Timo Boll.

    His backhand is very controlled and appears to have very high spin. Timo Boll was one of the first two winged loopers I believe, his backhand is basically identical to his forehand and he can do side spin-topspin with it: it’s a thing of beauty in my opinion. Like Federer in Tennis — beautiful, if not quite the best.

    Agree with this. Especially those shots where he gets a load of sidespin on them, they're beautiful to watch. Generally I really like the look of the spinnier and longer strokes

    I'd also never heard of that Benedikt Olah guy before that was mentioned above: that BH of his is an absolute cannon. It's amazing how the players manage to keep some of these super powerful BH strokes (a la Olah, Kreanga, Jorgic) controlled. It looks like just angrily lashing out at the ball sometimes.

    It’s a backhand discussion and nobody mentions Aleksander Karakasevic? How is this even possible.
    Kara is past his prime but his ball control and variation on his strokes especially his backhand is second to none.

    Pretty sure I mentioned him in my previous post. He is not forgotten.

    After watching the recent WTT Contender Doha event, where Darko Jorgic vs Lee Sangsu played against each other, I will have to add Darko onto the list of most awesome BH player compilation list. Video below:

    This discussion is very much enjoyable but I highly encourage modeling your BH stroke based on your physical capabilities. If you learn too use too long of a stroke, you mind end up out of breath every 3 cannons or destabilized.

    Thanks Kuba. Right now I'm in pretty decent shape so I'm ambitious/delusional enough to be eyeing up the pretty (Ma) long strokes 😁

    Copy Jun Mizutani. Even the Godking LGL said he is the best two winged modern looper to aspire too. the CNT are too physical and require too much dedication to training for a non-professional but Jun has a nice compact game
