I still don't understand the psychological effect of your twiddling. Whether you hit with LP OX or LP with sponge will make virtually no difference to your opponent. Unless your opponents are beginners they would know this. 


It's a paid act.

Yep Thanks Ball, I see how the dynamic of holding the bat too tight might lead for more out return, it's just a habit and it's hard to change all the sudden, I think holding the racket too tightly contributed to my wrist injury, especially when I used to practice 3 hours a day awhile ago.

If you are having that problem with LP, whether or not you have sponge, you need to spend time working on your touch.

 
Quote of the week candidate!
 
OX LP or Sponge LP, or SP or regular inverted, it doesn't matter... it is all about seeing the ball, reading the spin, break, placement, speed, height... getting into position, knowing what you want to do, (if it is a cut block short or barely 1/2 long then...) taking the ball early with a LOOSE grip and correct bat angle, AND finishing the stroke with good touch and feel. We can read about it on the forums, but we all have to put the effective training time in to get there.




Thanks, there is a learning curve in TT, and we just started lol ..

Like you described, it is easy to know HOW to make a short return, but doing it in practice, then in a match under pressure is another animal altogether. If you practice it a lot and can succeed, then LATER, like many months later, the success in matches doing this follows. In the meantime, match performance using that shot might be same or even worse. That is how it goes.
 
If one can learn how to move to the incoming loop, get right next to the ball and use a very loose wrist, then later, it is much easier to learn how to push an underspin ball short.

Most defiantly, I would read stuff and watch video, but putting that into the real is totally different thing. Practice will make it better, that what TT masters say here.

Ha ha Alqa!  I would be worried about the TT masters that would say that practice will make it worse!  You would want to defy them!  Take care of your wrist.  It is possible that your grip contributes.

Haha Thanks Ball ... I only play once a week currently and putting extreme wrist support that restrict my hand motion a bit, like I can't return a severe using backhand flick etc .. My dr suggested so ..
