Re your league season-do you need to change gear or is it your fitness that you are worried about.


Both. Need to get in better shape ( I usually am in good shape in September and then after Christmas I loose it :) , so even this season).

I think I need another FH rubber to more focus on spin and placement instead of speed. I win very few points from fast loops, placement and more arc and spin is much more important. A slow loop is much more difficult to anticipate innterms of speed and spin, most opponents lose their timing when I loop thin and slow with lots of spin. If I loop with more speed and less spin they use the speed and block it back and I am in trouble...

Also, I want more spin in my serves...

You will improve your game with double fish

its worth experimenting mate-you can always go back to your normal game if it doesnt work out.

Silly season!

I just ordered a sheet of DMS Firestorm soft, black 2,1 mm 8).
For now I will focus on finding my way back to Xiom Omega VII after having revisited H3 for a few weeks. Yesterday InalO tried anbrand new sheet of Double Fish QiJi hardness 37-39. It felt rock hard so I put a thick layer of Falco long booster on it, will try it again later.

I have a competition comming up in 10 days and I need to gain some lost ranking points, so just focusing on basics until then. After that I will give Firestorm a brief try on a spare blade (Perhaps I will do that on Tuesday already) to see if I can change rather smoothly before a big competition late in May or if I need to wait until after that (I should probably wait).

I am also thinking of trying a slower blade, a Stiga Defensive Pro, 7 layer with carbon. It is said to work well with Reflection 0,9 mm for aggressive pushing and almost as much back spin in blocking as with Carbonado 90. Hopefully I can try a friends bat with that combo. I am not at all sure that blade would fit me on FH side....

Stiga Defensive Pro

The last two sessions and at our club’s internal chapionship,I have been using Stiga Defensive pro instead of Stiga Carbonado 90. I have not yet decided if I shoud make a permanenemt switch. I have one last big competition coming up at end of May so I need to decide soon.

Here I wrote a review of that blade:
viewtopic.php?f=43&t=35476

Here is the final of our local champs (I won 3-1). I played very defensive, because of the blade but most because of the opponent. We play in the same team and know each other very well, and he does not like my anti :). So I used it as much as I could. Also, my FH is not on spot yet with this new blade, I have some timing issues (blade is lighter).

Last night I had a very good session at another vlub than usual. I needed to decide weather to keep the def-blade or not. I feel I loose too much on my FH side compared to what I win in control etc on BH-side. So now I will go back to my ordinare blade, at least until the big competition held in 3 weeks. After that I may try the def-blade again but with a different FH rubber. My loops against back spin was not as good as needed...

i know what u mean mate-blade may be great for b/h but it throws the f/h off.
im pretty happy at the moment but its taken me 5yrs to get there.
u can prob relate to this...........................
u try other stuff and your game gets worse-u then go back and your game is a lot better.
i think we must keep trying though.

Yes, I must try other stuff or I just start to wonder if this or that would be better. But when it comes to blade I very rarely change, just test. And now I am back to Carbonado 90, just had a 2 hour session with mostly FH and it felt great :).

Yesterday I tried Diabolic extra slow. It was actually a little better than Reflection (my Diabolic is brand new, Reflection is used form2 months). I used them in the same thickness and on same blades. Diabolic has lower throw and the top sheet is very slick. It is a little faster than Reflection and perhaps not as safe. But attacking back spin is very good. I will keep it :)
