Hi Akash,

What is the problem with the bat at the moment?  Is it too fast, too slow, heavy, light, not enough spin?

Others may have some ideas as to different combinations you can use but I think it is all good quality.

hello sir,

my racket is not too fast and not too slow it is normal, but i can not understand that what is my best combination of my tt racket. my game is fast as well as controlling. so i think that my racket is not comfortable for me. 

in my forehand there is speed and spin and in my backhand control and speed is present. 

so pls help me what rubber and racket i can choose, which was suitable for my racket.

pls help me.

but sir in last, i have some financial problem to buy a much costly racket. so if u help me, i can thanks u every time. 

pls help me.

and sir another problem is that sometimes i does not play a topspin on a heavy cut return. 


Kyle Uy

Kyle Uy Posted 8 years ago

if you need speed, i suggest a thicker rubber (2.0+) for more speed

if you like to loop like me, i use hurricane 3 neo, it has great spin and speed, but the only con is that it is really heavy

i paired it with a light blade so it works fine for me.

it costs less than 25 US dollars

AKASH AGARWAL Posted 8 years ago

thanks sir, 

but i have no much more money to buy this rubber. can u help me for tt rubber and blade.

Alois Rosario from PingSkills Posted 8 years ago

Hi Akash,

We don't keep any rubber.  Sometimes at a club players will discard their rubbers and they are still very useable.


AKASH AGARWAL

AKASH AGARWAL Posted 8 years ago

Take a look at the lesson on the Forehand Topspin Off Backspin.  We also have a lesson in our Match strategy lesson on Playing Against Long Pimples.

Hi Akash,

We cover this in our Serving Secrets course.  The main thing is to contact the ball finely.


AKASH AGARWAL

AKASH AGARWAL Posted 8 years ago

Hi alois 

is yasaka mark 5 1mm rubber good


Alois Rosario

Alois Rosario from PingSkills Posted 8 years ago

It is good for slower control or chopping.  Not for topspin because the sponge is too thin.

Dhruv Maniar Posted 8 years ago

Akash Ararwal.......what level are you playing at?

 


AKASH AGARWAL

AKASH AGARWAL Posted 8 years ago

hii dhruv, 

i am playing tt in agra at in youth group. 

but my problem is that, how i am increase my forehand topspin stroke and also my backhand stroke


AKASH AGARWAL

AKASH AGARWAL Posted 8 years ago

my racket combination is coppa jo platin in my forehand and yasaka mark V in my backhand and joola carbon blade.

all the rubber are dead and ply is in bad condition


Dhruv Maniar

Dhruv Maniar Posted 8 years ago

Ill put the equipment aside...i feel youre tryin too many things at a time...and getting so tensed will not speed up the learning curve.Make a check list oof things you have to fix...and go about it one by one.Dead rubber is dead be it a yasaka or a gki....get a proper bat first....coach might suggest sumthing once you tell him what you expect from your bat.

 


AKASH AGARWAL

AKASH AGARWAL Posted 8 years ago

hiii alois sir, 

thanku for this statement. But how i am block heavy topspin with so much speed and curve, this is because my coach has playing very heavy topspin with so much speed and curve. if i block his topspin, the ball will go outside the table and he was shouting me. I block his topspin with yasaka mark V. 

Pls help me to block his topspin and give me video to learn and practise that. 


AKASH AGARWAL

AKASH AGARWAL Posted 8 years ago

Alois Rosario

Alois Rosario from PingSkills Posted 8 years ago

Hi Akash,

Take a look at the lesson on the Backhand Block.

To increase your consistency, slow the strokes down and practice it in training as much as you can.

Alois Rosario

Alois Rosario from PingSkills Posted 8 years ago

Hi Akash,

That is a good quality rubber.  There are no particular shots that you can do better with that than any other type of rubber.  Just think about getting all of your shots correct and more advanced through learning the techniques that we sow you in our lessons on the Strokes & Techniques.  This is the most important part for you.


AKASH AGARWAL

AKASH AGARWAL Posted 8 years ago

thanku sir, i can try and then i tell u


AKASH AGARWAL

AKASH AGARWAL Posted 8 years ago

hello sir, 

this rubber is very effective for me. 

sir, when i was playing i does not balance my body, that's why i loose my points. pls tell me how i am balance my body when i play any stroke either forehand or backhand. pls sir pls


Alois Rosario

Alois Rosario from PingSkills Posted 8 years ago

Hi Akash,

Make sure you practice a lot of footwork drills.  When you do, focus on being balanced, especially when you are striking the ball.

This is one of the keys to improvement.  You can also focus on this sometimes when you are playing matches.


AKASH AGARWAL

AKASH AGARWAL Posted 8 years ago

thanks sir, this is very effective for me. 

pls tell me, which serve i am doing opposite to the pimple player and also a plane rubber player.

pls


Alois Rosario

Alois Rosario from PingSkills Posted 8 years ago

There is a whole strategy of serving against all different types of players.  Think about each player you play and which serve they don’t like.


AKASH AGARWAL

AKASH AGARWAL Posted 7 years ago

Alois Rosario

Alois Rosario from PingSkills Posted 7 years ago

It is not possible to tell what ply you are using.  Jeff and I use the PingSkills Touch.

For the forehand try to take the ball earlier by standing closer to the table and contacting the ball closer to the bounce.  If you are playing the stroke with good technique it will go on the table.


AKASH AGARWAL

AKASH AGARWAL Posted 7 years ago

thanks sir,

pls tell me i have a friendship 729 fx rubber on my backhand, so tell me how i am cut (chop) the ball very hard, so that, the opponent can't pick the ball.

pls tell me.


AKASH AGARWAL

AKASH AGARWAL Posted 7 years ago

can u give me this t-shirts in least price. so i can buy it. This is because, these t-shirts is out of my pocket money. 

so, if u help me, that i can buy some t-shirts.


Jeff Plumb

Jeff Plumb from PingSkills Posted 7 years ago

Hi Akash,

If your opponent understands spin, then even if you chop the ball they will be able to return it. For more information on this stroke take a look at our lesson on the backhand push, or if you are playing against a strong topspin, the backhand chop.

As for the t-shirts, they are already at the lowest price we offer sorry.


AKASH AGARWAL

AKASH AGARWAL Posted 7 years ago

okkkkkk thanks sir


AKASH AGARWAL

AKASH AGARWAL Posted 7 years ago

sir pls tell me 

TIBHAR RAPID SOFT TABLE TENNIS RUBBER (MAX)

 how is it for forehand 

pls tell me


Jeff Plumb

Jeff Plumb from PingSkills Posted 7 years ago

Hi Akash,

I think it's best not to worry too much about changing equipment. Simply choose a reputable rubber and then worry about improving your technique. This is the real key to improvement!


Dhruv Maniar

Dhruv Maniar Posted 7 years ago

this has to be the longest 2 person thread at pingskills :P ...anyway....akash you try to be your best with the present equipment you have..then think of having custom made bats.


AKASH AGARWAL

AKASH AGARWAL Posted 7 years ago

AKASH AGARWAL

AKASH AGARWAL Posted 7 years ago

Jeff Plumb

Jeff Plumb from PingSkills Posted 7 years ago

Hi Akash,

It doesn't really matter what name you give it. I think the best option is to continue to work on developing your strokes and improving your technique. The better you get at this, the more you will be able to adapt to different styles of play.


AKASH AGARWAL

AKASH AGARWAL Posted 7 years ago

hello sir how r u, 

i ask one question to you that, how i am remove aggressiveness and negativeness from my game.  and how i am play topspin to a  heavy cut push. 

 


Alois Rosario

Alois Rosario from PingSkills Posted 7 years ago

Hi Akash,

It is important to take the opportunities to attack when you can but make sure that you are getting at least 70% success from the attacking stroke.

Take a look at our lesson on the Forehand Topspin Off Backspin to see how to make the attack against the heavy cut.


AKASH AGARWAL

AKASH AGARWAL Posted 7 years ago

thanks sir, very very thanks for tell me that how i am playing strokes against long pimples.
