Hey Alois/Jeff, I have yet another question for you guys, if you don't mind.

I am just curious on if I should use an anti-spin rubber for my backhand side because I use the penhold grip and find it hard to control spin and things of that nature while using the RPB, and the anti-spin rubbers will supposedly control that. Just wondering if this is the thing for me.

Thanks again,

Hi Maxwell,

The anti-spin wouldn't really suit a RPB.  It might suit if you are going to change sides and hit the return of serve with the anti-spin.  This will help to control the spin.

It would be difficult to perform a RPB with the anti-apin.  You will not be able to generate the topspin to help the stroke go on the table.
