Just curious about this aspect of the service rule.
I looked up the official service rule, it says nothing about service having to start with the rubber hitting the ball. What if I hit the ball with the edge of the bat ,intentionally. Would it be a good service if all else complies to the service rule?
Yes it would be a good serve as long as you don't hit it twice. However it may be a reasonable surprise for your opponent but difficult to make a genuinely good serve with the edge of your bat. You are probable better off to work on your spin serves using the rubber... especially since you probably paid good money for it.
