Or maybe his coach was a PH player.
His FH does have hint of RSM about it. But,IMO, his backhand looks quite natural as if that has been his style for the great majority of his playing years.

The thing is that even with Dignics 05, when I tested it, I felt I had a speed issue - it is almost as if the ball wants to sink into your rubber even when you crash it really hard and you never got pure speed and power - you always got something that was controlled and spin oriented.

IMHO, from my limited experience (7 months and 2 blades), while looping, D05 feels more powerful when you use a harder blade that promotes spin generation by penetration of ball into sponge (like TB-ALC) than a softer blade that promotes more brushing (like HL5).

I am going to try D09C / D05 combo on something a bit harder than TBALC.

This is D09C reviewed by a high level H3 user. They mention in the notes below the video that H3 BS Provincial 41(!, presumably boosted) is faster than D09C.

I'm using Timo Boll Spirit currently. Same same Timo Boll ALC.

Agreed with the comments on this page, D09c is an absolute monster... You get both a good dead response for very good over the table shots and also the springy super spinny and speedy combining the best attributes of both Chinese tacky and Japanese grippy rubbers.

The only problem is the price lol....I guess we probably pay for what we get after all...

I'm a convert!
