I purchased a new bat recently.  Its a Stiga Allround Classic Bat with Mark V rubbers.  My old bat was a 20 years old Stiga Ultimate.  The rubbers were completely worn out.  I played my first game with the new bat and noticed it is faster.  So a few of my returns were long and missed the table.  What can I do to adjust to the faster bat or do I need to work on my strokes?

Hi John,

It may not be your strokes but just a matter of getting used to the speed of the bat.  It won't take long.  The Mark V is a good choice.

Spend a little time practising with it and you will soon be OK with it.  You don't even have to consciously change anything.  You will adjust naturally.
