Hi Alois and Jeff

I had just bought a new bat but I had a new problem too! The problem is located on my forehand and backhand topspin. With my old bat, I can do the loop easily, but with the new bat, the ball flies out of the table. Should I have to adapt with my new bat?

P.S: I have watched a match between you and Jeff, and that video was entertaining! haha

Thanks in advance

Hi Archel,

Adjusting to a new bat can take a little time.  The ball flying off the end is usually the thing that happens because the bat is a bit faster.

Do a lot of consistent controlled hitting with it over the next week and you will soon get used to it.
