I'm somewhat confused about the differences between counterhits and loops. Is the counterhit just a loop with less topspin? I've watched your videos on both counterhits and loops, and I'm somewhat confused.
Finally, given that you have a reliable loop, is there any reason to hit a counterhit if you can hit a loop?
You are right, the topspin or loop is just a counterhit with more topspin, starting a lower and brushing the ball more.
Having these strokes similar will make switching between them easier and will make it easier to adapt during a rally.

Once a player has developed a reliable loop, it is used far more than the counterhit.
