My questions has been sincere. I can't say the same for the reply I got.
Same video link shared with every reply... That video link is too weak to get any "shark tank deal".

I agree that with Cpen grip, a lot of doubts came into my mind.
the lack of finger gripping for control, accelerating, wrist etc and with flying out is a possibility.

So that is why my 3rd question is now asked if there is for slow style? If one side is anti or lp, then I can understand there will not be those acceleration that I was thinking about.

Maybe you are right, this is more a SH user grip change. and not really suite for Cpen as alternative.
I also wonder on the FH cpen grip serve here (wrist question was not answered, as something to do with OPs song was the answer I got)

Any ways, seems like if anyone has questions OP goes on kill mode. So really no point to waste any more time with the same 4.44 min click. Since 4 is death in Chinese, I should of known

… Have you tried with 20 or 30 high power FH shots in a row, from around 1.5m to 2m from the table with say atleast a 2400 level player…

Yes i did 20 or 30 high power fh shots in a row, from around 1.5m to 2m from the table.

I'm sure it doesn't really matter if you're hitting against a player at least a 2400 level to test a grip, or against, for example, a robot.


…Your concept is new and other than your 4min video,…

There are a lot of my videos on youtube besides this 4 minute one.

 If you open my website and click on “youtube videos & contact” there are links to other videos.


…do you have more sample size, or actually using it in a tournament?…

I participated in rating tournaments. At the end of my site there are about 8 photos, with those who took 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in event.

In these pictures you can see me with my racket. You can find out about the venue of these tournaments from my site, which has a link to the site of this club. The site of this club has tournament tables of tournaments in which I participated. Tournament dates are on the photos.


…why would I want to repeat your song?…

I invited you to sing my song so that you would be convinced that if you unclench your fingers in your grip like in mine, then your racket will fly out. And this will mean that my grip is more secure than yours and therefore it is not worth so long to doubt how secure is my grip.

I don't know how else to convince you that my grip is super secure.


about serving

my blade allows to use 3 grips:

1 my grip

2 special grip that shakehanders use.

3 c-pen.


I don't like to serve using my grip. Now about 70% I use the special grip that shakehanders use. About 30% c-pen.


15 years ago you can see in video

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9__bBgyq3w&list=PLxG4q-0oQgzoz20vGvvByVKOTFwSzpYXm&index=2

about serves - 9 min 51 sec


…How is the wrist action compared to normal Cpen grip…

100% exactly as with c-pen grip.


…Who is your intended target audience?…

My whole site, blade and grip is about top speed shots like tops and smashes.

about 4.44

this video is in english. 4 is death in Chinese. 4 not 4.44


I don't understand why you only link to this video.

my site has "youtube videos and contacts".

if you click on "youtube video & contact" you will see links to about 28 of my games and many others.

I'm not exactly sure what is OP's point here. The adage here usually is "thou shall not insult the client" and "client is king" haha... Maybe he really is not that talented of a businessman :( in fact a couple of us here were interested in buying a blade but he doesn't even want to make some for us lol (be it handmade or contract manufactured)

I had a brief look at his videos, his serves are pretty basic and do not have advanced deception techniques that higher level player uses. Different level players have different requirements for the grip and the higher you go the more stringent the requirements are (for eg fingers being on the rubber surface for extra control).

 But still, I can see how one can serve with Cpen well and then switch back to the grip as the index finger is quite close to the other face, or simply serve with the full grip (imo it would be my choice). As for the blade flying out, it's like shakehand so I don't think it's an issue.

About serves, please, watch video 5 in my site.

What is below is taken from my website:

I love serving holding my racquet like Shakehand Grip or Penhold Grip.

In the video below you can see how I deal with the interceptions in the service.

If anyone finds the way I answer not very calm, then, please, forgive me.

I don't have experience to communicate in forums and i'm not sure about my english which started to learn when I was 45.

I will try to be more careful in my answers in the future.

Thanks for letting me know about it.

I'm not a businessman at all.   


My site has a "How to copy the Popovich's Blade" section.


Everything below is copied from my website:

For those who want to copy my racket and then use it I bring drawings of details аnd photos.

I am sure that for the person who wants to make it (modify any euro racket), information provided is sufficient.

In addition, any improvisation is allowed, to invent something new.

I will be glad if my ideas inspire someone to improve my racket.


If you have questions or other interest, my email address is on my website by clicking on ”youtube videos & contact”.

I like new grips being used. However this one is very far from being added to any list.
There is one video where an older gent smashed some decent one hot quitters. However I would rather have some decently ranked gameplay with more players as single hits cut around isn't a very impressive demonstration.

I can show my grip only through my website and video.

So, as you have an opinion on my grip then you read my site and watched my videos.


When I see arguments that my grip has limitations, I try to objectively understand these arguments.

When I see a NO response, I look for what arguments led for this NO response.


In your post, there is the only argument that is relevant to my grip:

…as single hits cut around isn't a very impressive demonstration.


I understand your “argument” as follows: Since I (passifid) see that you (Victor) are the only one using your grip, then this is quite enough for me (passifid) to answer not only - ... is ... far from being added to any list ... , but even - …is VERY far from being added to any list…


I want to emphasize that your only “argument” and the conclusion (NO) that you made from this “argument” have ABSOLUTELY no relation to Table Tennis, which means that you did not find a single flaw in my grip!


I like new grips being used.

Please tell us what new grips do you like?

What is the most conservative thing in Table Tennis we can change. For example, we cannot change the size of the table, net and rules. I think the most conservative thing we can change is grip.


Many of us have been playing with the Shakehand Grip for years, decades and even our whole lives and have never even tried the Penhold Grip.


I really want to get these players interested in one off-table check with the Penhold Grip, so that they (may be) will then have a strong desire to test the Penhold Grip at the table.


The ultimate goal is to check it out for yourself (at the table) - does Penhold Grip really provide better control than Shakehand Grip in forehand fast drives and topspins?


For a better understanding what happens to the racquet when doing forehand fast drives and topspins using Penhold Grips at the table, it is useful to do off-table test.


To avoid confusion in terms, I use: 

Racket is paddle with rubbers/rubber on it.

Paddle is the entire wooden part of the racket.

Paddle consists of blade and handle. 


In order to better see what is happening with the racket, it is advisable to see the racket in the mirror.


  Off-table test:

1 Take the racket with your fingers at the very tip of the handle so that the racket hangs down almost vertically.

2 Hold the racket in front of you without squeezing your fingers very tightly. The weaker the better, but don’t drop your racket.

3 Relax your wrist as much as possible so that the hand with the racket can hang out at the bottom.

4 Not quickly (so that the racket does not fall to the floor) move your hand with the racket to the left if you are right-hander.

5 While doing this, pay attention to the fact that when you move your hand, the handle moves ahead of the blade.

6 Try to lead your hand faster, paying attention to the fact that the main thing is that the racket does not slip out of your fingers.

7 Note that the faster you move your hand, the more the handle is in front of the blade.

8 Now take the racket with Penhold Grip and do it all over again. Make sure that everything happens with the racket exactly as if you were holding the tip of the handle.


Facts (from our gaming experience):

1 The faster we hit, the farther the ball flies.

2 The faster we hit, the more we have to cover (let's call it necessary covering) the racket so that the ball does not fly off the table.


Facts from this test (with a sufficiently relaxed hand):

3 When the hand moves, the blade lags behind the handle (inertial lag)

4 The faster the hand moves, the more the blade lags behind the handle.


Conclusion from point 3 = when the hand moves, the racket closes (inertial closing), that is, the angle of attack of the racket decreases.

Conclusion from point 4 = the faster the hand moves, the more the racket closes and the smaller the angle of attack of the racket.


We know very well from our experience that the faster we hit, the more we need to close the racket.


Now let's try to put these 4 facts in one pile using only one assumption - (the inertial lag of the blade from the handle) is equal to (the necessary closing so that the ball does not fly further than before the increase in impact speed).


Conclusion: the faster we accelerate the hand, the racket “ITSELF” (inertially) accordingly reduces the angle of attack and the ball does not fly further than it flew before increasing speed.


If the assumption is fulfilled - (inertial lag) is equal to (necessary closing), then we can very significantly, relax the hand compared to the Shakehand Grip. By very relaxing the hand, we delegate the choice of the desired angle of attack to INERTIA.


In my experience, if the racquet is heavy enough, then there is a good chance that the assumption - (inertial lag) equals (necessary closing) will be met. I really get feeling that the racket plays “by itself”.


I call this ability of the racket itself to set the desired angle of attack when playing with the Penhold Grip - the Penhold Compensatory Effect.


If you have not found a single error in my theory, then I hope that you will check it at your next training at table, even if the tournament is coming soon. 5 - 10 minutes of forehand play with the Penhold Grip will not enough time to ruin your Shakehand Grip technique.


An important point - when playing forehand fast drives and topspins with the Penhold Grip, you need to hold your racket higher by 6 - 8 inches (15 - 20 centimeters) than with the Shakehand Grip, since the Penhold Grip has a lower center of gravity than the Shakehand Grip.

If you don't keep your racket higher, you will often hit the ball off the table.

 About forehand fast drives and topspins using Shakehand Grip.


Shakehand Grip allows us to keep the center of gravity of the racket during the acceleration of the racket:

1 above the continuation of the forearm,

2 on the continuation of the forearm,

3 below the continuation of the forearm.


Let's do tests to check the Shakehand Grip.

For a better understanding of what happens to the racquet when doing forehand fast drives and topspins using Shakehand Grip at the table, it is useful to do off-table tests.


Test #1 Check when the axis of the racket is almost perpendicular to the continuation of the forearm (the center of gravity of the racket is higher than the continuation of the forearm)

1 Hold the racquet with your thumb and middle finger vertically up. Keep as relaxed as possible, allowing the racket to dangle left and right.

2 Not quickly move your hand with the racket to the left if you are right-hander.

3 While moving the racket the handle without your force (due to inertia) moves ahead of the blade.

4 Try to lead your hand faster and note that the faster you move your hand, the more the handle is in front of the blade.


Let's carry out tests similar to Test #1, but with a different position of the axis of the racket.


Test #2 Let's position the racket that the axis of the racket is at about 45 degrees (blade is up) to the continuation of the forearm (the center of gravity of the racket is above the continuation of the forearm).

Test #3 Let's position the racket so that its center of gravity is approximately on the continuation of the forearm.

Test #4 Lower the blade so that the racket's center of gravity is below the continuation of the forearm.


Fact regarding blade from handle lagging during racquet movement - blade lagging from handle in all four tests.


Facts about changing the angle of attack of the racket:

For tests #1 and #2 = the faster the racket moves, the more the angle of attack of the racket increases. Those. An anti-compensatory effect takes place.

For test #3 = the angle of attack of the racquet does not change.

For test #4 = the angle of attack of the racquet decreases (i.e. there is the Compensatory Effect).


Conclusions:

1 - In order to use the Compensatory Effect using the Shakehand Grip, you need to orient the center of gravity of the racket below the continuation of the forearm during the impact.

2 If we orient the center of gravity of the racket above the continuation of the forearm and keep the racket relaxed, allowing inertia to affect the angle of attack of the racket, then the faster we accelerate the racket, the greater the angle of attack of the racket. The anti-compensatory effect takes place. 

In which case the ball will ALWAYS fly out of the table.


The center of gravity of Shakehand Grip, with the natural position of the hand, is higher than the continuation of the forearm.


You can see holding the center of gravity of the racket below the continuation of the forearm (he used the Compensatory Effect) very clearly on YouTube performed by Chinese athlete, a three-time world champion in individual classification Wang Liqin during execution of forehand topspins. He was very famous of his forehand topspins.

I found that info about my grip is scattered all over the place. I removed a lot of superfluous, not directly related to grips.

I have already redesigned my site. My site turned out to be more than 3 times shorter.


Please visit my site again.

I will be glad to get advices from you.

Comparison of Shakehand and Penhold Grips for applying forehand fast drives and topspins.


Analyzing how the racket behaves using Shakehand ыand Penhold Grips for applying forehand fast drives and topspins the following conclusions can be drawn:


With Penhold Grip

1 Players are not afraid of heavy rackets, because the heavier the racket, the more noticeable the Compensatory Effect works (due to the influence of inertia) and this is good.

2 You can relax your hand much more than with Shakehand Grip because when you relax your hand, inertia intervenes and increases control.

3 Racket's center of gravity is naturally very lower than the extension of the forearm, which is very comfortable and useful for control.


With Shakehand Grip, players have the choice of:

1 Orient the blade naturally (the racket's center of gravity is higher than the extension of the forearm).

1.1 There is a limit to the relaxation of the hand. Below this limit, inertia intervenes and control deteriorates.

1.2 The Anti Compensatory Effect works, so in order to reduce this effect, shakehand players prefer light rackets.

2 Orient the center of gravity of the racket below the extension of the forearm:

2.1 To use the Compensatory Effect, shakehanders have to constantly ensure that the center of gravity of the racket during acceleration is below the extension of the forearm.

2.2 Orienting the center of gravity of the racket below the extension of the forearm and maintaining this position during the game is really not comfortable.


Due to the fact that in the natural position of the racket with the Penhold Grip the Compensatory Effect works, and with the Shakehand Grip the Anti Compensatory Effect works, with the Penhold Grip the player gets a tangible advantage in control compared to the Shakehand Grip for applying forehand fast drives and topspins.

Popovich’s Grip (PopG) for applying forehand fast drives and topspins


Comparison of PopG vs Shakehand Grip:

PopG looks more like a handshake than Shakehand Grip.

This is due to the fact that when shaking hands, the index finger is bent (like PopG), while the Shakehand Grip has a straight index finger.

As for the significant differences between PopG and Shakehand Grip, The Compensatory Effect works with PopG, but not with Shakehand Grip.


Comparison of PopG vs Penhold Grip:

Outwardly, PopG differs from Penhold Grip in that the blade of PopG is directed forward, while that of Penhold Grip is backward.

But essentially they are the same - both have blades pointing down and both with the natural position of the hand, the center of gravity of the racket is lower than the continuation of the forearm.

Those. With PopG The Compensatory Effect works just as well as with Penhold Grip.


By the way, using my racket and PopG you can play (very naturally) using Penhold Grip or RPG!


Given that PopG allows you to hold the racket more relaxed than with Shakehand or Penhold Grips (which I already reported), and also that The Compensatory Effect works for Penhold Grip & PopG, the efficiency of forehand fast drives and topspins in PopG is as high as in Penhold Grip.


Please watch my videos on the links below where you can see my racquet and grip in action.

Wood of blade, rubbers, my age and technique were nothing special.

I'm sure if I had filmed my forehand fast drives and topspins using a Penhold or Shakehand Grip then my hitting would not have been more effective than with PopG.

And if someone says that I performed these strokes against weak players, then I suggest that you look at my attacking strokes in my matches.

There are 29 of my matches on youtube now. I was not too lazy and counted how many of them I played against weaker opponents.

And it turned out that such videos where I play against weaker players - ZIRO.

In most of these 29 matches, players are 200 to 300 higher than me in rating. Out of those 29 matches, I won 11.

Are there any videos of any players using your blade,  demo or in a tournament or league or practice ?

I am not talking about your video with you showing it in the mirror

Thanks

However, do all these grips deserve to be on the list of Table Tennis Grips?


Over 10 years ago I invented blade and a new grip I called Parallel Penhold Grip.

 

There were topics:

Parallel Penhold Grip, Posted: 01/11/2009 by brytaku25

Parallel penhold paddle and grip, Posted: 01/23/2009 by VictorPopovich.


I have completed now an in-depth grip analysis of all these Grips (and mine one) and have resurrected my website.


Please study my website and answer my two questions:

1 Do you agree with my conclusions from my site?

2 Does Popovich’s Grip deserve to be on the list of Table Tennis Grips?


YouTube Video: Table Tennis. Popovich's grip.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tiejB8joTNA


My site address is: www.ttnewgrip.com


THANK YOU


I don't understand your question. What "list" are you talking about ?
Is there some OFFICIAL site of tabletennis grips as approved by ITTF or something ?

Anyway how do you suggest someone can decide whether you should be on the "list"
1. Can you play defense / chopping with this blade ?
2. How many blades have you sold ? (You posted earlier that you have no video of ANONE using this blade) 

I am not hating on you but I think my questions are reasonable

Anyway your post reminds me of Kathy Griffin's TV show in USA called My life on the D List

This post is not for you. You won’t understand anything in it, of course if in this post everything that I typed … are reasonable…

If you are still waiting for my answers, then I think that you are not worthy of them (IMHO).

I won't contact you at all (never).



Moderators, this is for you:


English is not my native language, so I don't have enough English to listen and understand …TV shows…

So I'm out of ignorance  …Kathy Griffin's TV show in USA called My life on the D List…

So I can not to appreciate the degree of idiocy of the comparison:

…Anyway your post reminds me of Kathy Griffin's TV show in USA called My life on the D List… 


But even my English is enough to appreciate the unprovoked:

…I am not hating on you but I think my questions are reasonable…


But if I (or someone else) think that some of the questions of new Beginner are not reasonable, then this means that this new Beginner hates me!!!


This POST has been read (including you) for 48+ (24 x 2) hours.

You in this post did not notice what I noticed?


I don't want to mention the user name of the one who put this hatred in the POST, so I will call this forum member - the specialist of TV Shows.


For example, the TV Shows specialist asks: …2. How many blades have you sold ?…

I am sure that this question is not reasonable because this is not the business of the TV Shows specialist.

 

The POST was the 4th post from the TV Shows specialist on the forum.


To express unprovoked hatred in the 4th POST in the MyTableTennis.NET, which is read all over the world???


I don't believe you haven't read it.


I thought if I take the time to give my detailed answers to the TV Shows specialist and then a Moderator deletes the POST, then my post with my detailed answers will also be deleted.

 

For now I inform you that all my answers are exclusively in my first post and I will have to work hard so that the specialist in TV Shows is my understanding of what is ALREADY printed there.


If within 72 (24 x 3) hours the POST is not deleted and this post of mine is also not deleted, then I will answer in detail all the questions that I was asked in the POST.


In addition, I promise that if the POST and this post of mine, too, will be present in this topic for another 72 hours, then I will apologize to: the TV Shows specialist, forum members, forum guests and Moderators, for the fact that my English is so bad that I in an unprovoked:

…I am not hating on you but I think my questions are reasonable…


saw hatred that wasn't there.
