LordCope, did you have this issue when you were double pip?

It depends. I'm lucky in that I have good relationships with some strong nationally ranked players, who are always willing to train with me, because it's good for them to get used to awkward setups.

It also helps that my coach used to run the training sessions, and as he's a top LP player there's more respect for the discipline.

What I did find was that I needed to be confident in expressing my needs in training as the standard one size fits all drill portfolio usually on offer always needs adjustment for sp or lp.

On the whole, if you can keep the ball on the table and block high level loops on either side, and have fair control over ball placement, decent players will want to train with you.

Weaker players won't, but they're the kinds of players you'll beat anyway because they don't understand or fear playing against pips.

Hmmm...I may be on to something here with the 563 MPs on the FH. I flat hit quite a bit with inverted, but I am far more accurate with this setup. Blocks nice as well.

I really was worried i wouldn't be able to return topspin, but that has not been a problem yet even against fairly spinny players. Underspin is even easier because I have spin to work FOR me there. Really liking it so far. And it's pretty fast and explosive! really shocks people.
