Please help!!!!!! Since i started playing in a club two years ago I had many people suggesting me types of blades and rubbers. I started with an off+ blade with 2 standard beginner rubbers. Then after a year I switched my rubbers with something faster like butterfly roundell. And the last advice given to me was to switch to an all+ blade and use tenergy 80 rubbers 2.1mm. The result is that I dont feel the ball coming in contact with the racket long enough for me to apply the amount of spin I want, especially for topspin and I end up either hitting the net or hitting away from the table. I played for fun with a premade stiga racket I had bought 3 or 4 years ago, which is definitely a slower racket and I noticed a very big improvement to my control and spin.
So my question, after all that intro is, what course of action should I take in order to improve my game in such a degree so that i can finally one day be as skilled and effective as I need to be so that I can use a top class blade and rubbers. Should i purchase a different blade or keep practicing with the one I have until I get it right (all+ tenergy 80).
Thanks in advance George Theofanakis from Greece
I think it would be best to change back to a slower racket till you develop your strokes and control. This is really important otherwise you will find that your strokes will become very short and inconsistent.
