Some PH action in hard bat. (First time I see RPB used in hard bat too.)

Blue bats. This is sandpaper, not hardbat. There's supposedly a sandpaper pro league in China now, and Yinhe sells the rackets. Looks rather modern (no chopping). Still, the topspin drives end up above the head, like the old books say to do.

Thank you for correcting me.
It reminds me of the penhold style played in the 60's and 70's (CPen). It also reminds me of what TT used to be: simple, affordable, and fun.
This sand paper TT or "ping pong" is definitely more "fun and rejuvenating" than TTX, IMO.

I suppose, to be fair, we haven't seen what high level TTX is supposed to look like. Considering we haven't heard anything about it in months, we probably never will.
