In many parts of East and Southeast Asia, for men (and women) of a certain age, Japanese Penhold was the default style when we started playing. Everyone played that way, you could get cheap bats (anyone remember the Butterfly Biriba?) in that style, the ones from the Chinese bookstores would usually shed the topsheet in 3-4 weeks. The good players were good, the bad ones had horrible backhands for the obvious reason. The back side of the blade was plain wood, back then it was legal to use, so a lot of people you meet still use it.. :lol: This guy's pretty good, seems a solid 1900 at least. That off-the-bounce topspin drive.. wow.
