    The Dark Side of Table Tennis | AntiSpin

    My 1k sub special video, a compilation of dirty blocks made with frictionless antispin! (90% of them have been made before the plastic ball era, nowdays achieving that spinreversal is impossible)

    You have great touch !

    Interested to know what goes through your mental checklist to set yourself up to play these short blocks?

    Thumb or index pressure?
    Middle or tip of racket?
    Stable or downward chop block motion?
    Weight neutral or pulling back slightly?

    I have mixed emotions on anti spin! 😂

    Do I like watching it? Yes and no...... Once you've seen one shot, it feels like you've seen them all (certainly in a compilation like this), but it's good to see the longer rallies where people have to really think about what is happening.

    At a "non pro" level, I find anti spin and any "pimples out" rubbers are "looked down" upon, by anyone who doesn't use them.

    That being said, I think the primary reason for this is that a lot of people struggle to deal with that style of play, and look for excuses!

    Losing to a player who happens to touch the ball at just the right angle, compared with conventional players who are looping on both wings doesn't feel as good!

    Once upon a time, I would have been in the "I hate all rubbers that aren't "normal", camp", but I have come to appreciate their place! 😂

    I think it's a skill in itself to be able to play that style. I also think it makes it harder for those players to get better and better, because you are often limiting the shot selection on the Forehand or Backhand (whichever side has the pimples/anti spin).

    Andrea, love your videos - Great camera angles and it's a good level of play to watch.

    Keep fighting the good fight for anti spin! 😂

    @Andrea_Aschi If it's not a secret how do you manage to alternate between heavy underspin and top spin returns to same type of opponents loops?

    Andrea makes some good short blocks but mostly the video shows people that don't know how to play against anti. You can Andrea's opponents make very good loops with lots of top spin but they under estimate the amount of back spin the ball has when it comes back. Playing against anti requires that you keep track of what kind of ball you hit the the anti in the previous shot. Many, like those in the video, didn't do that or they didn't have the experience of playing against anti. Playing against LP 0X push blockers is almost as bad. If Andrea showed the whole games you would see that it is really Andrea's FH that wins points.
