Looking good Gepi. I can tell you've been working on your forehand, both loop and block. It's much more consistent now. Good movement too. Keep working on the touch on those short balls, the control with ABS3 is great and you can offset some of the loss of reversal by dropping the ball short.

One thing I'd say I noticed, and I think your opponent did in the third or fourth game, was that you were "cheating" in the backhand corner to run around and loop.

I do really like the hit you are doing with it. You take such a big swing then it dies on the other player.

I'm working on this but its hard to decide to twiddle in official match, specially in hard matches, because is not automatic yet. I have to train more.

Anyway, after one month of intense use , i feel again, as the first time i tried the rubber, a worsening on control and spin reversal. I really like this rubber but durability in my experience it's questionable, and clean the rubber has low results.

What's your opinion/experience?

Yeah, I feel you.

For the very first weeks and/or months it is not the easiest to learn twiddling. You have to be careful not to make it fully automatic, only semi-automatic, meaning you should not twiddle all the time and for every shot. For example, I only use the antispin on my forehand only during serve receives, chops and light smashes. On the backhand I use it for smashes, chops, blocks, sideswipes and pushes. For both forehand and backhand sometimes you should use both the inverted and antispin rubber to make your game more unpredictable, which's base will be given by the twiddling. If you are not stable yet, practice only during trainings and on easier matches. Sooner or later you will develop a feel and reflex regarding when to twiddle. I really cannot give and more specific advice, as for me it was almost automatic to develop this skill which proves to be quite effective. The only way is to train yourself. Once again, only carefully, as too much twiddling will make you confused and will ruin your performance. Try to keep it on a reasonable level. For example, if you have the chance to attack with backhand and you want to make it quick, rotate your blade and hit or topspin with the inverted. You do not have to use the antispin on forehand for example or you do not have to twiddle very often, sometimes could be enough. Since the attacks with the antispin (especially ABS 3) is not so quick, your opponent will most likely reach and return it. If you hit with inverted, you increasd the ball's speed and boost your chances of getting a point. You can also do it alternately, meaning once you attack with antispin, once with inverted.

Good luck and have fun!

I can just confirm that I have the same experience - after some time (a month or two) the Antis that I've tried (mostly classic ones, but also tried ABS-3) develop some grip and lose the passive reversal qualities. Not entirely, but to some degree. A friend of mine somehow sands his Anti periodically but I prefer to adjust to the changes.. At least on my level I'm not very fixated on the passive reversal of the Anti - more on the control..
