I've created this topic because I had a blog called "Leaving the Dark Side for a Shade of Gray". This blog described the transition of different people from being a LP defender to being a SP one. Because we all ended up going back to LP defense, the blog will go by a different name from now on handling different kind of experiences.

However, this does not mean the experience of this transition isn't worthwhile and no one can succeed in this attempt. Therefore this topic wants to tackle the different experiences, techniques and strategies accompagnying the transition and to show it isn't near impossible as it appears to be.

So everything about the topic is welcome, ranging from personal experiences to links to other websites, blogs,...

I'll start with the obvious: a link to my own blog.

So... if you're using SP for defense, do you use OX or sponge? If sponge, how much sponge?

I've used 1,5mm sponge black SPs in my experiment.

The main problem with SP chopping is that the sponges underneath current SPs don't absorb enough power. So footwork is even more crucial than using LPs for defense: a chop in less than ideal position results at best in a ball easily able to be put away. Therefore your footwork has to be near perfect.
