Hi, can anyone advise me if it's possible to increase the backspin and control off my l.p. chop block when returning heavy topspin. I've found that I don't develop much backspin so it's easy for my opponent to continue looping. Do I need a loose grip similar to blocking inverted and does the speed of the chop have any effect on this or do I need to just alter the bat angle.

Not a chop-blocker, but here's two players demonstrating the technique





First video is in OX (no sponge). I don't know how heavy the topspin is in this video, but it might still be useful to see how the stroke is executed.

Second video is in 1.0mm sponge. He starts chopblocking around ~1:05, and looking at the other player's stroke its safe to say that the topspin is pretty high. I'm not sure if its because of the thicker sponge, the potentially higher incoming topspin, or variations in technique (or some combination of the 3) but the chopblocking here seems different than in the first video.

Hope this helps!

Do you have to adjust both:

-Loose grip for the speed
-Bat angle for the spin

BTW it's very difficult to chop-block a power or heavy topspin, better concentrate to return the ball.
