lol again, :rofl: I'm pretty sure he/she means just a regular FH, just someone who's using the RPB grip.

Tpb push is the norm on all levels of play. The touch is great and angle is natural. I rarely see rpb push. Unless we're talking about real faraway chops. I occasionally use them to save a point..the reach is better with rpb.

RPB push is certainly less common than TPB push because few players are confident enough to flick underspin serves regularly until they reach a certain level. But at the higher levels it's more common for RPB players, because if you approach a short underpin serve with RPB push, you have the option to change your mind at the last second and do a banana flick and vice versa.

Chen Bowen (from MDTTC) is probably one of the highest level RPB PH players in the US and he does this regularly.

Taisei Matsushita (Japan) plays RPB Jpen...very well, and does this all the time. He plays mostly RPB in fact for all strokes on the backhand.

I'll look for videos...

Here's one of Chen Bowen playing my old chopping coach.

I didn't really search much, first video I found at around 1:22...WQL serves light under, he pushes RPB.

Here's Taisei Matsushita (JPEN RPB) doing a BH tutorial.

Of course if you watch his games, he usually flips because his RPB flip is amazing. However, he does push sometimes...but I don't think I've ever seen him do a TPB push on the BH. In this video at 3:32, he specifically shoes how to fake the flip and then push instead.

I'm starting to change my preference for "full-table" FH and practice RPB more.

RPB seems good at attacking more "ambiguous" balls that aren't really chances, because of the small and quick movement. A full FH loop is too slow.

Or put another way, against better players that don't give me easy balls, I have to RPB to at least fight :lol:

TPB is not weak tho, I'm starting to win some points there with forceful blocks (fuller pushout)
