Table Tennis Tips

A real low and short no-spin serve can give you some easy points in matches, as they are difficult to flip hard, and they require good timing to push hard. Mix it up with a heavy backspin in the same spot. Remember to get it short, the ball should bounce short on your side close to the net...

 729 Faster German Sponge review:



I am using 729 Faster on my forehand, replacing Bryce.  It is every bit as good as Bryce.  Tt has got german sponge(soft), and it is 2.2mm.  Even though it has got soft sponge, I feel it is still a little harder than bryce.  hopes that helps.




In my experience, you can easily stroke a fast, spinny loop from below table level with the Faster. Now, it won't be AS spinny as the Geospin Tacky (black), but it will jump with more speed.

I don't use speed glue a lot, but I have found the Faster to be very consistent both with and without speed glue. However, with the Faster, you can generate substantial speed and spin without the re-glueing.



I've used it quite a bit. The most noticeable thing about it is its weight. Quite heavy.

The topsheet is sticky and the sponge is a springy, fast German variety. It lacks touch at the table because it's so bouncy, but take a step or two back and it's one of the best looping rubbers around. I tend to use more 729 Cream on MRS or Japanese sponge now than I do anything else. But if I were more of a Euro-style mid-distance looper, I'd probably still be using the faster.



Geospin Tacky (black) is about as spinny as a rubber gets. The red sheet isn't as tacky or as spinny. The Faster will be, well, "faster" than the Geospin. It will also be bouncier and heavier. I play a lot of defense, and I'm thinking about putting some black Geospin Tacky 2.0 on a defensive blade for a tryout. This is not something I would even consider with the Faster.


This is a less sticky but still fairly chinese-like topsheet over a very german sponge. It's probably the best looping variation of 729 from mid distance. It lacks the touch of some other variants in close to the table. It also is surprisingly heavy. But if you're wanting a german sponge it's more consistent than the 40 series. It's a nice hardness at 40 and glues up wonderfully. Again, it's best for loopers who need power for a distance.
