Finally played again last night. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to take any videos of my playing...hopefully it'll happen soon.

I really like the acoustic. I put dawei inspirit on the FH and LKT pro xt on the backhand.

One thing I kinda noticed was that it rewarded more active play. I needed to actually hit into the ball to get it to go. Probably good for my game :P By the end of the night, my FH loops against pushes were getting pretty consistent.

I actually managed to beat the best player in our club one game, if not the whole match. He is a cpen player, probably somewhere in the USATT 1800-1900 range. He loops a lot, but sometimes goes way back and lobs. It's quite impressive.

I also managed to get a pair of asics gel rocket 7 for about $26 after shipping via a discount site + a Black Friday deal! For anyone who doesn't know (I don't know how international black Friday is) Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving, where most stores in the country have enormous sales on their products. My wife got a camera for $600 that is normally $1100 :o

I was definitely playing better a few matches in. It takes me a while to warm up.

On the short pips topic, I think I depend a bit too much on my loop and such on my FH to try them out. That said, I did notice that I virtually never loop on my BH. I only hit, push, block, chop-block, and VERY occasionally emergency chop. Might try some short pips on my BH eventually. For now I'll play with what I've got on the acoustic.

I forgot to mention:

Previously our club was still using the 40mm celluloid balls.

Last night was the first time I have seen them bust out the poly balls...one table was still playing with celluloid. Man...Jumping back and forth between them really threw me off. They are different...subtly so, but definitely different.

I just want to consistently play with one type :P

One think that irks me is the lack of orange poly balls. I prefer orange. :headbang:
