I have been playing as a penhold but I am now going to start playing as a shakehand.

I have two questions:
Did anybody experience the same problem?
Do I need to hurry because the event will be sold out towards the start?
I first posted this in the technique section, but I feel like it fits better here since it is firstly about rubbers, secondly about the blade, and lastly about my technique. I need some advice concerning my choice of forehand rubber. In the short video I use two fairly slow 5-ply wooden...
