Hi Def Attack,

I recall some post awhile ago you mentioned blocks with anti have more reversal if passive, vs. something like a chop block. Is this correct and usually the case?
I saw this WRM video recently (Gane using Diabolic I think) and was blown away by the reversal he could get off some chop blocks, so it got me wondering...

I think that the Diabolic original (blue sponge) act a little different due to the sponge. But if opponent loops with lots of spin and some speed you get a more spinny block just holding the bat still (timing is of course very important). But blocking a low spin counter may be different. I usually chop back when opponent serves fast no spin (or some top spin) serves. This stroke can generate more back spin than just holding the bat, especially with some anti, like Störkraft and Diabolic (maybe not as much with Reflection or Barna SuperGlanti).

In the case of the video (first seconds) I think it was more a matter of the blocker adding speed to the ball and making the stroke with a very low arc. Opponent did not really try to attack, he just hold the bat up.
