I have a question about simple and fast forehand counter hit. I had fast rubbers, TIBHAR Rapid Soft 2.0 and pretty fast blade. I was able to counter hit with a lot of precision and strength. After switching to DONIC Baracuda 2.0 with a bit slower blade, I'm able to loop a lot easier, but I've got an extra issue now.
I miss a lot of forehand counter hits. In order to adjust arm movement, I need to hit slower and shorter in order to score, which leads to a lot of misses. I'm not willing to give up strong looping in exchange for counter hit.
I'd like to have the best of two worlds, loop and good old smash win :)
What can you advice me to do in this case? Thank you!
I would persevere with the rubber and try to develop better control with the counterhit. This will come with practice. As we often say, take it one step down by hitting the ball slower and with more consistency. It will get there.
