Hi Pingskills

I wanted to know if I should use the RITC 804-40 (short pips) for my backhand and my forehand.

I am an offensive player and like to smash with my forehand and drive with my backhand. I also push and block with my backhand.

So i don't know if i should get a defensive rubber on my backhand and use the RITC 804-40 on my forehand.

If i should get a different rubber for my backhand what do you recommend?

Hi Mar,

The short pimples on the forehand will give you a different effect but it will also decrease your margin for error because you won't be able to develop as much topspin.  What are you using at the moment?

Im currently using an inverted rubber on both my bh and fh. Im still a beginner by the way.

I would stay with the inverted rubber.  It is easier to learn your stroke correctly with inverted rubber.

Im thinking of getting a new blade and rubbers. Can you recommend a good all round blade and some good rubbers.

Thanks

Hi Mark,

There are literally hundreds out there.  We have the PingSkills Touch with Mark V.  Go for any allround blade with a medium level inverted rubber like Mark V.

What do you think about the Donic Burn All+ with Mark V?

Yes that will be as good as any.
