Many years ago, when I started to play TT, people around me were saying that "topspin must be performed by rubber". But until recent days, I do topspin with the blade, not just with rubber. Nowadays I see some player who does topspin only with rubber, id est they minimize blade contact. And their topspin look very nice.
Is there any tendency that blade contact must be minimized during topspin?
PS: sorry if I ask strange question
Best wishes, Ardak
You can use different levels of contact with the blade and the rubber with your topspin.
Usually when you use more blade, that is, the ball sinks into the wood more on contact, then the result will be a faster topspin. If you use a more brushing contact with the rubber it will be a slower spin type topspin. Of course you can manipulate this in different ways as well but you don't need to complicate things too much.
