The kids I coach that use LP learn how to use it properly, with technique - so if you can't win, you probably need to get stuck into what they're doing; which is practicing like mad :-)

Honestly warming up for 2 mins against a rubber when you haven't done the training is not going to help mate. just go out and practice and play with people with "funny" rubbers - it takes time but you'll get there.

Training LP I believe is an easier way to beat inv rubber players. These kids have good backhands (with inv rubber). You can see frustration on even on LP players that play against non-inv rubbers. Even the LP players react like "I don't like anti-spin" :D hahaha.

2 mins is better than nothing. Like I said, I'm just trying to have a feel for their rubber and the way they hit. If I lose, I lose and that's fine. If warming up doesn't help, then skip it. :D

Honestly if there was a tournament for inv rubbers only, I would play there instead. I don't play a lot against LP/anti so it takes awhile to trigger the brain to strategize and think. I only use instinct when I play against inv rubber players.

I'm only a low rated player so I don't really matter. I can't train like the kids because my partner would kill me :) and I'm already too old.

I played 2 guys last night in pennants. With both of them there was no problem with having a hit in the warm up against their pimples out rubbers. One had short pimples one side and long pimples the other (which side was worse?) and the other had smooth one side and short pimples the other. I had this part of the thread in the back of my mind when I saw the bats.

I myself use normal smooth rubber both sides, but after playing a few people have been asked which long pimple I use :).

I guessing you played against adults and not kids. :) Yeah social comp players don't normally have issues having a hit with their non-inv rubbers.

I've only had this experience with a kid who has won two comps in a row.

I've been asked a couple of times if I'm using anti-spin :rofl: They had to be re-assured that I was using normal rubber.
