Hi, I've been playing with TSP Curl P1 - R 0.5mm (on my backhand) for a little while over a year now. I play at a high level (for county) and i chop mid - long range. I decided to change to a 1.00mm TSP Curl P1 - R to get more deceptive spin and used it for the first time tonight. I was doing multiball against heavy loops amd was returning roughly 60%. I was wondering if anyone had any tips for using it, e.g bat angle, how much wrist to use ect ect.


Also i use the Joo Sae Hyuk blade

I play with the same LP in 0.5. Quite honestly I am not exactly understanding your reason for moving to the 1.0.

Thicker sponge enables more spin variation at the expense of control. So going thicker makes the rubber faster. Going to the 1.0 won't make your rubber more deceptive. If you want more deception, that is, if you want your pips to be "nasty" and unpredictable to your opponents, you actually want LESS sponge not more. Also P1r is not a deceptive pip by design, it's a grippy LP. If you are really looking for deception, you want something slippery in OX (no sponge).

I use that combo and have tried the 0.5mm. Things I’ve found to be useful...

1. Use a shorter stroke, let the sponge do the work

2. Try to put a little bit of side on as you chop. This improves placement for some reason. Also makes for a non-standard bounce.

3. Practice chop contact alternatively under the ball then vertically down the back then punch chop - to get the float ball.

That’ll get you going. You’ll find the 1.0mm much more variable than the 0.5mm, so will take a little time. Being able to create the float ball on demand is where you’ll see the greatest benefit.

Okay thank you this is really helpful. Because you have played both do you prefer 0.5 or 1.00mm?
