Hello i serve my pendulum mostly to the middle backhand and sometimes to the middle of the table,

the pros serve this pendulum service mostly to the forehand, in my leagues the opponents don't have a banana flip mostly, should i serve this serve once in a while to the forehand of my opponents too, i read that the pendulum serve is very effective on the backhand side, and the reverse on the forehand

what do you think, when i serve the pendulum to the backhand i can piviot and loop strongly from the backhand side, what are the

advantages when i serve a normal pendulum to the forehand side :D

Thank you very much

Serving short to the FH is harder to keep short because of the shorter length, and if it goes long it's in the power zone of your opponents FH... But a good one can cause your opponent to reach if they're standing in the BH corner leading to a poorer serve receive quality. Also much harder to do the chiquita on due to the movement. However a FH drop to your FH corner becomes easy because of the sidespin direction. Flips to your FH corner are also easier due to the longer diagonal length.

You need to think about the serve receive possibilities and tie that to your gameplans.

Every person you serve to is different,
 some players will spin your pendy serve down the line knowing the sidespin will help keep the ball on the table while you are in the backhand corner doing a pivot, 
others will push it back hard reducing your attack and or wait to counter your down the line attack, 
some are poor at attacking forehand short pendy serves and thus you have a greater chance of getting in first,
some will swipe it deep to your backhand corner one time and flip it far to your right sideline next time
Some players don't do banana returns
some players can't pick the sidetop/sidebottom variations
some players are better level so just going all in is a way to practice your stuff
some players receive pendy serves from everyone else (stock standard) and have no problems at all
some players are short, tall, lefty , old school, trained, short pimple, first time visitors, former champs, future champs, team mates, penholders, choppers, blockers, counterhitters, family

I think having some variations and being adaptable are the main things
