Just curious how others try to chop... Where do you contact the ball at? Are you aiming down at an angle perhaps 45 degrees, hitting almost straight down perpendicular to the ball? Or slicing underneath itmoreparallel to the ground?

I k ow it depends on the rubber and incoming ball, so let's say it is a decent loop drive shot coming at you. Not super skinny or smashed, but a nice drive.

With the anti spin in using, mega block, I find slicing parallel to the floor can impart pretty heavy spin. Others say the anti cannot do much... though I am seeing a good bit of back spin when doing that shot. With inverted or short pips or even grippy l.p., it seems hard to do. With the anti, it is very doable and even safe. It works well for me and allows me to play both chops and blocks at the table.
