Hello again

Recently I found out that my forehand rubber is too fast for chopping and it tends to have a very high throw (if I loop,the ball is following the movement of my bat too long. And if I chop, the ball tends to be vertical to the ground. This happens even if I play into no spin ball, regardless of my technique)

How exactly is important what bat I am using?
Should I change my rubber or just my sponge?

If yes, what rubber would you recommend and shall I write which rubbers I have already tried (and rejected) to help you with choosing your advice?

Hi D K,

The rubber will not make a big difference.  Just keep working on technique instead.

I know that the technique is much more important,but the rubber should not be ignored completely,shouldn't it?

As long as you have something reasonable it is OK.

Keep your rubber and keep working on your technique.
