Are there any adjustments (both in terms of technique and tactics) you should make when serving with SPs? Or is it exactly the same as serving with inverted (except with reduced spin)?
I'm gone back into an equipment junkie experimental phase and plan to try all sorts of different combinations over the next 6 months at least, including antispin, SP and maybe LP. This will be good education for me for the future when having to play these different rubbers myself. There is very little available in terms of coaching for these rubbers and it would be great if pingskills could do some instructional DVD. It would be a must-buy for me, along with the tactics DVD from the pingskills classic.
Serving with short pimples is the same and as you say it will just generate less spin. the ball will not grip on the surface as much so you may need alter the angle of your bat a little.
We are going to cover the use of short pimples as well as playing against short pimples in our Match strategy lessons... coming up...
