Do you serve with your spinnier rubber?

What I mean is :
You have a spinny rubber on your f/h and a non spinny rubber on your b/h.
When I do a b/h serve , I twist the racket and I use the f/h rubber just for the b/h serve . 

It is normal for the defenders and pip-out players but what about the others ?

No. I only serve bh when I want to mix up my serve a little to keep my opponent guessing, so the extra spin or not is not important.

I actually do, mostly to confuse my opponent up with more or eventually less spin, although I don't always twiddle back fast enough and sometimes I wind up with kind a funny grip especially when the ball comes back fast

What I'd like to learn is a sort of goofy serve where the stance and motion starts like normal fh pendulum, but at the end you contort your wrist and serve with the bh rubber. I've seen some players do it. Since I have SP bh it would produce a very different ball. It would only ever be a change of pace one or two serves a match. Maybe use it at 7-5 up, trying to steal a cheap point to close out the set, and maybe put my opponent on tilt if they are inclined that way.

@brs you could just serve with your pips on forehand. Just don't show them that your twiddled. Keep the racket below the table and then behind the body until you have to contact the ball.

That's probably a better plan. I haven't put much effort into twiddling yet, mostly because I have no clue how to hit a sp fh. But whrb I olay profivient twiddlers it really messes eith my mind, so I want to learn it.

Actually I have a danish keyboard as well as english to use with duolingo, and sometimes i accidentally switch by swiping the space bar. And all the characters move around to make room for nonsense like ænderne har grønne bukser på.

It's gonna require some incredibly good hand control to keep the serves tight coz the SP and inverted is gonna feel so different....

It not "that" hard. I'm sure BRS can do it. His skill level is too high to struggle with it.
