Hi guys ,
I have just returned to playing after a 30 year gap.
When I was a junior I was fairly decent ( county ranked ) and played with Sriver.
Having recently returned to the game I bought a new bat - Petr Korbal OFF with Tenergy 05 FX on both sides.
I find that I lack control and touch with it.
Not only is it very fast but the ball seems to bounce off it.
I can loop well with it but have problems killing and "digging" the ball close to the table.
I have considered going back to Sriver but wonder whether there are any better modern rubbers ( Mark V or better ?) which will give touch, feel , control and spin with decent speed.
I attack on my forehand and block / counter on my backhand.
Thanks in advance, Nick
Good to hear you are back enjoying the game after 30 years.
I would go back to the Sriver. It is as good as any to start with. The Tenergy rubbers are very fast and especially if you haven’t played for a while you will find it really fast.
Keep the rubber when you take it off and you may find that after a while you are ready to move up again to the faster set up.
