Hi Everyone,

I finally started playing better with Hellfire in a decent League match last night. (November 14).

I got a lot of really good blocks in and the ability to drop serves short but drive the occasional no spin or backspin ball is adding a new dimension to my game.

Won two out of three singles and the doubles. Only lost in four to an old friend who knows my game well. He hits very flat and gives me very little spin to work off.

The Tibhar Evolution sheet on my forehand is spectacular. Really sold on it.

I have decided to stick with what I am good at for now.

I have a couple of technical issues linked I think to golfer's elbow. I have real problems with the simple backhand push as I struggle to get my elbow down low enough to play the shot. I have started to remedy this and hit more shots with Hellfire which is grippier and easier to attack with than DTecS.

My hit is very unorthodox as it involves having the bat vertical and scooping the ball from the forehand side. You might call it chicken wing attack. I can play it off backspin and no spin balls and the ball created is fast, flat and skiddy.

Hellfire takes a bit of getting used to after DTecS as you just don't get as much effect from passive blocking although the ball is slowed down and control is good. Blocks need to be placed well using the width of the table. Chop blocks are more effective.

I have mentally written off the rest of the season and hope to practice more and play less.

I have reverted to Grass D TecS ox for the rest of the season. I simply needed a fresh sheet.

Hopefully my slide down the rankings will now be arrested.

After 5 months with HELLFIRE OX, i changed combination:
from HELLFIRE OX to HELLFIRE OX with Toni Hold dampening sponge 0,5mm

The combination is very good for me:
- more control against fast and powered top spin
- low trajectory block
- lost a bit of reversal, but you know: after plastic ball reversal is very very low, for this isn't a problem
- better chop from mid-long range
- better possibilities to open services and backspin balls
- finally i can use a mid fast blade like NITTAKU GORIKI SD (i need a mid oversize blade)

Finally my right combination Blade and rubber
