I have a decent backhand stroke, I believe.  However, when I miss, I tend to "over lift" the ball.  I use Tibhar Nimbus Sound (inverted). Do you think switching to a short pips rubber would be advisable?

Hi Jerry,

I don't think you need a change in rubber perhaps just a slight change in stroke.  Focus on the same contact but getting your bat moving more forward.  It will be the subtlety of the change of the spin and speed of the incoming ball as well that you need to watch and adjust to.

If you are not recognising this you will find the same mistakes happening with short pips.
