I should rephrase "less wrist, more forearm" to less closed faced contact, more open faced contact which naturally allows more power from the forearm and less spin from the wrist. My closed faced contact over the top of the ball required lots of wrist and friction between rubber and ball.

heavy, maybe a little more forward motion when doing topspin to topspin...seems you are doing a bh loop for underspin which may make you a little late to the ball. But what do i know...Tongue


Mind is willing, but the back goes out too often :P

This has always been my default preference as I find it more powerful snd consistent, though possibly at the loss of speed in certain situations if you cant reload and shorten the stroke.
I like putting heavy topspin on the ball...

I noticed a video of me on page 1 back in 2011 so I decided to post this. I took 2012 to 2015 off from the sport and got back into it last year or so.

Disclaimers: 
-finally starting to get back to my 2012 levels of play
-takes a while with only 1 day a week
-carrying an extra 30 pounds

Here's what i can see that i need to work on:
1) i need more time to get in position, and execute better strokes - I think i am crowding the table
2) my footwork is almost nonexistant
3) i am not staying low enough
4) my strokes need a much more circular recovery so i can better reset my footwork
5) i often tense my wrist; not dropping it on FH and not starting a backswing on my BH

all matches are against a player who is about 1 tier higher due to much greater consistency and better defense/allround play. i regularly lose games to Milo 11-8. I lost at least 5 practice matches today (2-3, 2-3, 1-3, 1-3, 0-3)



A match where I play awful and make a lot of unforced errors

I've also included my best game win (where I focus on offense)
(warning, excessive celebration when i BH kill off the bounce)

and a competitive 12-10 match that i lose

Pardon the air conditioner noise in several of the uploads.

I'm wearing the hat. Milo is in Red.

One of the more colorful TT venues, icontek. You often get caught too close to the table on deep balls. Sometimes it causes you try to make a stroke while back peddling and the weight shift in the opposite direction is a power leak and source of inconsistency. If you have time to react to the deep ball, step back first then stroke. If you don't have time, choose a safer option such as push or block.

Can I have some tips/criticisms on my forehand with Chinese rubber?

Feel like I'm adapting well it's my first session back after an ankle injury :)

A longer Video might be a good idea if you could. Some Drills maybe or something match based just to get a better idea of how things are going. Cracking one off backhand btw !





You playing BL Seniors next year?

Thank you for the feedback. I feel that power leak and struggle with letting the incoming ball dictate my mechanics, rather than choosing a position to receive and approach the ball.

I feel like i should be playing further away from the table than my usual desire to dink / push / drop shot game requires.

I know that 3-4 feet back is where I have time to react to a greater variety of shots and can still apply some pressure, but I've been chided for giving up too much table (and angles) to my opponent. 

By my thinking, it should be easier to move forward than backward. Perhaps I should work on getting into a more neutral, but slightly further back position for both serve receive and immediately after serving?

I'm not really planning on making any more threads for our videos, but as it is 10 years now since he started playing on a table, this was us a couple of days back for anyone still interested.



He still plays pretty much every day, but he has hardly played any tournaments for the last 2 years. He will be putting that right next year as he is at the top of the cadet age range with a point to prove.

Yes. And as he is no longer sponsored by Stiga I can tell it like it is.

It is an incredible rubber, great for looping, but also, if you look after it between playing, it seems to last forever. The sheets he is using now are over 6 months old (playing 5+ times per week) and the topsheet look brand new except for a couple of places where he caught the rubber. I can't understand why more people don't rave about it personally.

My T-4 is still the best sounding blade too.
