I only ever try the clop-block with a LP rubber without sponge, but I can't see any reason why it's not viable when used with a thin sponge.

Does anyone play the chop-block with a LP rubber with sponge?

have done this with Feint 3 0.5 with good results in practise but there rarely seems to be an opportunity to use it in matchplay when it`s more intense,it is my favourite thing when I get the chance,what type of balls should I be looking to chopblock?

Medium paced loops are usually the best...both slow spinny and fast loops tend to be harder to control.

I have, no choice when I played at my friend George's work office, there is no room at the back for me to back up, which is good for my close to the table LP practices. :)

A friend of mine chop blocks my best loops for winners often with a very disturbing climbing and fading away flight path, sooooo anoying and basically non returnable. He uses inverted and 802-40 both with lots of sponge so that's irrelevant other than it being an effective shot.

His are actually more of a chop block kill smash.

I find the best time to chopblock is when the ball is coming into your body with some pace and you have little time to do anything else

That's with OX, right?

I would have assumed OX was better for chop blocking because, as a relatively passive stroke, doesn't it really need maximum spin reversal? And, as a rule of thumb, don't OX LPs have more spin reversal than with sponge?

I think you're quite right there. However the chop-block does need a short but sharp downwards motion which adds a lot to the (reversed) spin and helps take the pace off, so I'm wondering how effective this is with sponge.

I assume you mean without sponge here? Slight change of meaning to the whole thing otherwise LOL :P

Given I rarely use sponged LP these days, its hard to answer. When I did long ago, I think it worked pretty well. I seem to recall doing this with C7 when I played with that and getting decent reversal.

You're right, thanks Reb! Good to see most people here are mind-readers and got my message regardless.

It can be effective but it is more difficult to control the ball. Without sponge the spin of the ball is not so important than with sponge. That's why a lot of players use OX pimples close to the table. But for attacking at the table usually sponged pimples have better options.
So it is a question of playing style.

There are many videos of this German guy who chop-blocks (with OX) very often. It's Varatio, who is forum moderator of a German pimple forum and who is also a member of this forum. Here's just one random example:

I do not use that German guy chop-block style (it is deadly if do it right), I use this safer chop-block style
