Chopping with 1.8 requires quite a good footwork. It‘s much easier with 1.5 mm and still plenty of spin with the proper technique. ( still using now and then my „Hou racket replica“ )

Anyone know what thickness of sponge he's using in the Victas S1? He apparently used 1.8mm on his TSP Spectol but they don't seem to do that thickness in the Victas version - 1.6mm or 2.0mm.

I seem to remember him playing the maximum sponge.
I've tried this now and it plays much better than the sponge thicknesses below. Because with increasing thickness the S1 doesn't get much faster at all but rather softer which in turn increases the ability of the maximum backspin.

This video is not really useful unless one can understand Chinese but Hou Yinchao shows his paddle.
That Spectol is definitely 1.8mm or more.
That was before Victas took over.
His blade looks brand new also so I am not sure why we can't find it online for sale :?:

Since I am using Spectol 21 (2.15mm) and it has been discontinued, I am going to replace it with Victas S1 2.0mm.
