Hello, 

I'm just curios if anyone here has the same problem: if I play with a crispy feeling setup, my game tends to more active and offensive.

Normally, I play with H301 blade and with this blade, I try to play winners.

Last days, I tried a HL5 (same rubbers as on my 301) which has a slightly softer feel and is not as stiff. With the HL5 the control increased a bit and the topspins from mid-distance have more consistency. Everything as expected.
But in the tournament games, I tend to be more passive with the HL5. I tried to build up a control based game. Which was a bad idea because it does not fit my best skills.

Is this a normal behavior? Anyone else had the same experience?

Cheers,
Andi

This is just mind set. You might be more nervous in tournaments which causes you to play more passively.

I think that I just feel more confident with the crisper/harder blade and therfore can stay more active.
