He plays 3 kinds of backhand: traditional, RPB, and the third kind is unusual.

His third backhand the penholder equivalent of the seemiller grip?

You have brought up a very good point and I have never thought of it before. I have been twisting my wrist and twisting my brain :?: for the last 30 minutes!
Maybe the equivalent of the Seemiller grip is the traditional backhand. If the Seemiller grip or the regular penhold is just a windshield wiper or pendulum motion going between FH and BH, then the two strokes are "similar".
That 3rd stroke is different. It requires twisting the wrist in the opposite direction first (and still using the same side of the blade). You can try twisting the wrist and come up with that "3rd stroke" with the Seemiller grip. I know it is very unnatural and it won't be a useful or usable stroke at all.
Are we confused enough yet?
Does anyone else care to twist his wrist and brain and then comment on this? Which is the equivalent?

I never thought I would say this, but trying to figure out that third kind of backhand is actually hurting my head, in ways I thought was not possible before. But he is pretty good and I am seriously wondering if I should try the RPB. I move pretty well, and manage to cover both ends playing traditional backhand but I wonder if the advantage of the RPB is big enough to try and adjust to a heavier two-rubbered setup. It is just that watching videos like this one make it look so easy. :rofl:

I don't think RPB is necessary unless TT is played at a very high or competitive level, but it is fun learning it. I learned this stroke a few months ago and it is going not bad. I press on my thumb, middle, and ring fingers for RPB and these are the same fingers I use for FH any way.
Some advantages:
-You won't need foot work like Kim or Ryu anymore.
-You can actually go to a faster FH rubber without worrying the same rubber lacking control for the traditional BH.
The IQUL I got has worked well for RPB.
Thanks again for your previous tips!

I kind of like moving around to turn a rally from backhand to forehand and then go on the attack. But it would not hurt to have an extra weapon to fall back on. Apart from watching videos how would you suggest I go about developing the basics for RPB?

Some may feel differently, but I think the grip (esp. the positions of the 3 fingers at the back) is important. I was taught something similar to the video on this page:

viewtopic.php?f=28&t=6546&start=15

There are lots of videos on youtube that are good on the topic of RPB. There is another video in the penhold section of this forum that is good too.
Oh, that guy in the "is it legal?" and this thread has a lot of good PH videos, some are on RPB.
