Hello Coach! I just got a question. I usually play with my dad at home and I usually use my Joola Rosskopf Emotion wood with Adidas R4 for forhand and Mambo C for backhand. I have still not mastered the control and the ball, even though at instances very fast, goes out of control and I cannot win matches. I played yesterday with a very old bat. Butterfly Yuki FL wood with Yasaka Mark V for forehand and Friendship for backhand. I found that I could play better with this bat as the whole thing was under control, though some improvised strokes like rash spinning and rubbing the ball does not work. I could also play as fast as my new bat giving a lot of power. Could you tell me how to control using my new bat better? 

 Should I continue with my old bat till I master skills or try to gain control with my old bat?

HI Kartik,

I would stay with your old bat for a while.  Control is something that you need to develop over a period of time.

Getting a at that i too fast is a common problem I see with players.  Perhaps put it away for a while and keep working on your technique for a while.  You could try it every 6 months or so to see if you are able to control the ball with the faster combination.
