I would like to ask ......

1)What speed of the blade to you recommend to buy (I am using a bat that has a speed rating of 5~6) 

2)When I do a forehand chop, the ball would most of the time either fly off the end of the table, hit the net, or even whiz past me. What should I do?

Hi Hao,

The rating of 5~6 doesn’t really mean much.

If you feel that the ball is flying off, then a slower blade would be beneficial.  Get an All-round or Defensive rated blade which will be slower and allow you to control the ball.
