I have recently bought a new bat (Joola mambo on a Joola Flame Extreme wood). It is hard and great for attacking, which is my preferred way of playing. The ball leaves the bat very quickly, but I have also noticed that it makes pushing more difficult. When I push, the ball tends to go too high over the net, which gives my opponent better attacking possibilities. How should I adapt my playing when I want to push low? Wait a bit longer before pushing, use a different bat angle or just avoid pushing?
The best thing to start with would be to alter the angle of your bat to brush the ball a little finer on contact. This will keep the ball lower. It is important that you don't get a bat that is too fast for you because this is one of the traps.
