1. Have you personally tried all the equipment that you give opinions on? If yes how long do you need to have tried it before you can make a judgement on it? If no do you make it clear in your posts when this is the case? If not why not?

Thanks

What level do you think you can achieve in 5 years? What do you think it will take to get there?

How often do you train per week?

Do you think your game can benefits from what you learn in this forum?

Do you think your personality in the forum closely resembles that in real life?

You've stated before that your knowledge of equipment is better than your skills at the game - do you think the equipment side of TT is where your future lies? If so, how would you like to further develop this area?

What are your favourite subjects in school (I'm assuming you're still at school)?

Besides TT, what other passions/interests do you have?

How much time per week do you devote to systematic training/drills?

How much time per week do you devote to footwork training?

Do you do any regular exercise to aid your TT game (eg running, circuit training, skipping, shadow swings etc)?

Do you play video games? If so, how many hours per week?

What are your TT goals? What kind of player would you envisage being by the time you are say 20? And how do you intend to progress there?

How tall are you? (You look pretty tall for your age).

Do any of your school friends play TT?

What are the main things you have learned since becoming a member of this forum?

No I have not. I'm exceptionally good at absorbing information, and there is a lot of it just floating around.

Level in 5 years, I dunno, like maybe 1800 or something? I got to my current rating in a little more than half a year.

I train for an hour per week, one training session.

Yes, I learned to push based on what Hookshot said, and people have been helping me.

As for personalities, in real life I would be slightly more crazy. Nuts :P

Yes, I will be an EJ for the rest of my life. Once an EJ always EJ like thoughts.

I enjoy Biology. Mostly because in Science last year I got to blow stuff up, but I really like it.

Sometimes I drill for hours at the club, sometimes I play games. I usually do this thing with my dad where he hits forehands (PS, He can't aim well) and I try to get to every one of them with my FH. I think that counts.

I shadow swing constantly. I have a good Gym program too.

I play a little video games each week. Most computer time spent foruming and browsing Megaspin :rock:

My goals...firstly to try an Avalox blade. Second to try a National Hurricane. Third, reach around USATT 2100.

I am an average 5'8, going on 5'9.

None of my friends can play (Well) but only god knows how many I have tried to convert.

I have learned to PAY ATTENTION, and DON"T THINK BUT TO FEEEEEEEELLLLLL. And that Roundrobin will always get into an argument with another forumer, there is no magic rubber that will boost my play over the rainbow and that OX 755s are a pain in the ass to attach with rubber cement.
