I am subscribed to him and watched all of his videos already :lol: watched some more than 5 times too :rofl:
His contact is so interesting, sometimes he has a very small swing and even hits the ball close to horizontal. I believe he does the higher balls on purpose because it seems to reverse more and give heavier backspin which is difficult to attack when high.

Here is another interesting watch too: JSH - Tenergy 05 - Dtecs OX





and then there's this too hehe

So tonight was pretty good. I done specific tests to see if the JSH with Dtecs reverses more than the VKM. I tested it by blocking/chop blocking, chopping and aggressive chop. I first let my playing partner feel it for himself, then I let it bounce on floor and spin back.
I can honestly say that if there was a difference, we couldn't spot it. It seemed sometimes it would be ever so slightly more with the JSH, but then sometimes the same.

Anyway today I have decided to put my JSH down and stick with the VKM, the FH fishing definitely more dangerous and mid distance counter loop but literally everything else suffered. I would need extensive playing time with it to use it efficiently. I am only now considering the Nittaku Shake Defence, but first will see if I can get some answers from some youtubers.

So after I put down the JSH I played all my matches with the VKM and tonight I got to play a couple of really good players. I comfortably beat the Mathematician Anatol (the guy in my slomo vid) only dropping 1 set out of something like 5 best of 5s. The other 2 players were prem standard players, 1 of which plays in tournaments but I have never met him before tonight. I managed to go fairly even losing a close match.
The other guy is one of the best guys in the club who before having his shoulder injury had 100% win rate in all the local leagues in premier division.This was the first time since 7 months ago he actually wanted to play me. The last time we did I was using inverted and only getting back into it a few months. He destroyed me then, clearly toying with me almost 11-0 me. This time round however, although he did beat me 5 sets in a row they were all close, a couple 10-10. He was taking me seriously from the first set.
(can't imagine if i'm using the JSH he would destroy me lol)

Overall I am very pleased with tonight's session and I can see a future where I am a decent player perhaps playing in prem if not this season then the next.

Things I feel I need to work on first:
1. BH consistency in general (will get this from playing matches more) especially when caught off guard
2. BH pips aggression against backspin
3. FH, FH and more FH. Need to build my confidence because actually I attacked more today and it works out mostly in my favour.

According to this video it has. It is heavier



I am not too fussed to get the older one, I will get this one. I did comment and asked a couple of questions, which has allowed me to decide to purchase this blade perhaps on my next payday, or maybe I will wait and see if TT11 has it on sale by the end of today.

The translator didn't do too good a job lol
But anyway before I purchase the blade I will try my friends once more and hopefully for longer this time with more extensive use.

I played last night and this time I was a little more aggressive with my bumps and boy does it work wonders. I also tried for a whole game to play close to table and chop block, OH MY the reversal is crazy. Had a lot of fun and can see some more diversity coming from my game. I am twiddling sometimes now too.
Slowly Slowly I am seeing small improvements.
If I can keep my BH so consistent so I almost never give free points, get more consistent with the aggressive bumps and get my FH more consistent, twiddle better. Then I can definitely compete with the top guys at the club.
I love this journey so far and am really enjoying the Dtecs and am glad I can confidently say the JSH is too fast for me :lol:

So today I went to that junior masterclass again to be knocking/match partners.
It was exactly 1 month ago I attended and in that time they had a 2 week school break camp. It's crazy how much some of these kids improved!
I know I was better and more consistent and they were keeping up with me most of the time. In matches I actually lost in the 5th 10-10 to a kid I won very easily last time 3-0.

I am grateful I got to play against the same kid though as it allows me to see where I am losing points and how many/how I am giving away free (unforced errors)

I need to really learn to push and bump with the pips as well as getting used to twiddling and pushing with inverted.
I really need to improve my FH, so many free points I give away when my FH is not particularly good on the day.

Today I got a chance to play against a kid called Sam who is apparently number 1 10 year old in England. I played him before in the masterclass 5 weeks ago. He won 3-2 although granted that was the very day I swapped bats to the Stiga ALL classic with dtecs OX. This time round I won 3-0, all but 1 set clean. His coach on the side telling him he will do a lap if he loses lol. What I noticed making a big difference were 2 things. My FH has been getting better lately and was good today, I attacked when I had the chance and counter looped if it wasn't too strong. As well as my BH just overall being much more consistent the thing that made a big difference was it being better at the short game (service receive, pushing and bumping) and have begun chop blocking at the table at times as well as twiddling and looping with the BH.

I then played against a fairly familiar prem/1 player who'm I have played a few times recently getting closer and closer to winning each time. But this time round I won 3-0. Again the thing to note was my FH being good today. He is a chopper on the BH side with OX LPs like me but he has a flat FH. He rarely makes unforced error but he is generally a passive player. I actually won almost all the time with my FH vs his BH. He noted later on when I was getting changed that he can see I am enjoying this style of play and I am improving quickly.

Hopefully my FH can continue to show up like this as it makes me much more dangerous. Perhaps this is all the training finally kicking in with match play.
