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...

 Butterfly Feint soft

This "standard" long pimpled rubber is outstanding for chopping against topspin drives. The long pips deny topspin from biting into the rubber and kicking up, instead it returns the opponents spin.

 

Characteristics:

  • Speed: 55
  • Spin: 35
  • Control: 42
  • Density: 25
  • Reglue Effect: Not Recommended

 Butterfly Feint Soft review:
Review Feint soft, by Jasper
Source: Forum Thread: http://forum.oneofakindtrading.com.au/viewtopic.php?t=621

Here's my opinion ont the LP I'm currently using

Setup:
blade: Three Ball Allplayer (European shop brand), plays like BTY grubba all
FH: Tackiness C 1.3
BH; Feint soft 0.6

First of all, though this setup looks like I'm a classical defender, I'm not. I play close to the table controlled attack with this, following the advice of my club's only 'serious' LP player: 'play actively with this, it won't win points by itself!' He was very much right (although there are no LP that play by themselves...).
This rubber is VERSATILE, it can do about anything you want. (during the warm-up, I astound my opponents by just giving flat no spin balls on any of their shots). The pips are very soft (they bend easily) and grippy.

Stronger points:
-Attacking underspin balls: very easy, controllable yet fast
-attacking top spin/no spin balls: EASY, what the opponent doesn't expect from your LP
-choppin underspin balls: easy, some underspin possible
-chopping loops and flat hits: easy controllable, although not that much spin reversal
-versatility allow you to dominate the rally and force errors from the opponent

Weaker points:
-low spin reversal
-blocking topspin balls: controllable, but not spinny/deceptive, so easy pickings for a good hitter/loop killer (you can avoid this by practice on placement and keeping it low)
-chop and float is hard, because it's hard to put much backspin on your chops

I would recommend it for close to the table play, and for players who want their LP to be able to do anything they want (even somewhat of a loop from mid-distance). You will have to put a lot of effort in if you're used to say a Super Block, because it will require a lot more 'active' strokes. If you're a pure defender (mid-long range chopper), there are way better LP's for your style.
