I don't think so but since I haven't seen anybody define throw angle, yours is as good as any.A layman like me thinks that a high throw angle means that the racket setup is used by players who have less strength and technique than players with good technique and strength.
I agree with that.IMHO, a low throw racket setup requires a fast and strong stroke/brush to pass the ball over the net.
I don't agree with this. A brush stroke using a high tangential COR will be spinnier.The reward is the spiniest and quickest ball with a low bounce on the opponent table, which is harder to return.
You dug up an old thread.

A question for you. What makes a rubber spinny?
Thanks for reminding people. It is worth letting people know when you are digging up an old long dead thread, that you are waking it up and perhaps even, why.
Yeah, i read through the thead the firt time today
This is the central thing and it is worth people thinking about it. Good post BrokenBall.
Yeah, good thread. I read through it for the first time today and it makes me wonder.
If I get myself a nice stiff board and glue a few different rubbers to it, then set it up at the end of the table with a n angle leaning in towards the table.
Then start shooting with the robot always the same shot. .................
Now I would get completely different angled shots from the different rubbers, right ?
If that is so, why do the manufacturers not give us this angle ?
It would be more revealing about the rubbers qualities than the usual "speed -control- spin- lies they are telling us.
The test shot could be a standard and qualified as (for example) 40km/h speed - no spin- shot 30cm - above table surface etc etc .
