My question is one of strategy.

I currently use a paddle with a smooth rubber on one side and anti-spin on the other. Often times I would twiddle with the paddle to switch sides.

Is there any rule of thumbs that I should be focused on? One tip that I should probably remember all the time. In fact, since I play at an intermediate level should having two different sides be a bad idea?

Thank you for taking the time to review this question

Hi Bryan,

If you feel comfortable playing with this combination then stay with it.

I don't know that there is one rule of thumb but you can make sure that every ball you give your opponent is awkward.  Switching well will give you a big advantage.  If you are playing a player that doesn't handle the anti-spin then try to use it on both sides as much as possible.  If they do like the anti-spin then try to use your smooth side often.
