I like to spin but only for a reason: set myself up for a hit. A spinny shot is always serving a potential hit; spinny means slower; people my level or higher can control my spin so I use spin for control but only to lead to what's not about control: a hit that is not coming back. The hit is the ultimate shot and spin shots are serving it. Looping is great but hitting is greater because harder, with a smaller window of opportunity but higher chances of not coming back. I like to hit it when it makes sense to do so and that is hard to decide, leading to many greedy shots, like stupidly hitting when the ball is too low.

Hits are amazingly destructive if you can become consistent at it, almost impossible to defend from one to turn the point around. Problem is that hitting has a low margin of error compared to looping especially for low balls. I also have trouble playing with good hitters, especially those who can hit well against low balls!

I agree. Hits and blocks are the best for NON-Chinese opponents

I am growing tired of your obsession with Chinese supremacy; it is annoying and insulting to all.

I agree, I'm Chinese myself and I don't go around belitting other races about how bad they are at table tennis. Show some damn class dude.

It´s not only you, every player in my club complain how weird is to play against me. 
I´m a SP penhold blocker and hitter and I´m sure I can beat some guys only because of my style.
There are those consistent loopers who you know on the first look that have a high rating. And I know my own rating is way below theirs but strangely these players struggle when play against me.

Lighten up just a wee bit and cut this post-toddler a bit of slack.  His member profile indicates that he joined the forum at age two and has now reached the age of understanding common to six year olds.  And, as a six year old, he comes from a place called Chyna snd sports a remarkable physical attribute that is non-cranial.
