Hi sir,

Thanks for your reply. Your answer is guide me to improve my table tennis skills. You can guide me right way because you are providing training a paralympic team. As i mention in previous question i participate first time in Costa Rica 20 factor,  Right now i am classify in class 4 but it may be change i am under observation in next tournament. So please guide me i use Mark V or change my rubber to pimple. because in Costa rica tournament I can't play my best as i think. i can won only two matches, one in open event and one in team event. In December i will participate in para Asian games so i have not much time. Please guide me what's i do

Hi Trivendra,

If you attack with your backhand then stay with the Mark V.  If you are defensive only on the backhand then you can try the Long Pimple.

Hi there,

I liked what you advised on whether to stay or change the rubber on the BH to Normal/L-Pips, based on if playing off/def. But I would like to ask a quick follow up question to T's Qn:

As also being a Wheelchair player like T, I would also normally play close to the table.  I have a stronger BH than FH (and play more on BH than FH), so would long pips be as effective if played on the FH as on the BH?

Hi James,

I saw a few of the highly ranked wheelchair player using long pimples on the forehand to good effect.  It is definitely an option that you can explore.
