      Give me some tips :D

      Firstly just some information about how I play before I launch into my questions I'm a very consistent player, offensive shakehand looper on both FH and BH, FH being my weapon whilst BH is mostly for initiating an attack combined with close table pushes when my opponent is attacking and defensive loops in loop-to-loop rallies. However I find that especially with my FH, although I'm quite consistent, I don't generate alot of power. When I play against good blockers, I am usually always on the attack however the lack of power enables my opponent to defend and move me around which will eventually give them a good opportunity to strike back or to force me to commit an error. So my question is, how can I generate more power? Is it because of my rubbers? (I use DHS 729 black on my forehand) I feel that it has great control and spin but the power is lacking. If it's because of the rubbers what other fast rubbers should I get?

      Thanks!

      Wow man thats weird... the way you described the way you play is the exact same as me!! and i have the same problem... when on the attack you find people can make u run all over the place and then they counter from a weak ball from you.....

      1) I find that placing the ball to there middle helps a lot
      2) always put ur ball in a different place to keep them guessing
      3) maybe try a different rubber on the fh to see how it goes
      4) vary your spin... sometimes a slow spin ball will set you up for the next ball.
      5) when you practice, try using a bit of wrist in the forehand and really emphasise on the legs and waist rotation to impact the ball hard!
      6) and lastly try to stay and press up to the table.... top-spinning far from the table gives your opponent at lot of time

      Hope this can help

      P.s. try putting some booster on your bat, that will do the trick ha

      Gd luk!

      Great ideas! Yeah I think I need to stay close to the table more, I tend to back away too fast whilst my opponent stands closer haha

      Thanks

      If you play against a blocker, try to topspin on his elbow it is a weakness of many players

      Can you just tell us your blade and rubber ? I believe that you use Friendship 729, but there are a lot of different 729 rubbers...
      Most of them are :
      really spinny,
      quite hard (45°+),
      don't have much or no tensor effect, and
      are quite slow for attaking rubbers

      Depending on what you have, you can perhaps try a tensor rubber, for example 729-5. It helps accelerate when you do a top spin.
      You can also add more power with more aggressive rubber (european rubbers especially), but you will lose control.
      If you use hard sponge (45°+) did you test medium or softer sponge ? It helps adding spin and power to topspin, but you lose hard-hitting power.

      Hope that helps.

      OK,
      so you should already be delivering powerful blows (the blade is a very aggressive one).
      I would consider tensor rubber.

      Hmm,, when i used it,, i felt like i had to open the blade more to topspin... practice looping with topspin with this rubber for a while dont go for speed... focus on spin and using your legs and waist... you will generate power once you have mastered this
