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...

 Hallmark Green Power

Green Power is a fast attacking rubber developed for players who used to speed glue before the ban. The special formula introduces tension between the molecules to produce a rubber ideal for the modern fast attacking game. Excellent speed and spin are generated, combined with high levels of control which is sure to give your opponent plenty of problems.

Ratings:

  • Speed: 100
  • Spin: 97
  • Control: 98

 Hallmark Green Power Review:
Set up used:
Wavestone blade
Black Hallmark Green Power 2.? Muf, help me out, was it 2.0?
Red Juic Nano cannon Max

Inspection of the rubber; Despite it being a used rubber, it still looked to be in very good condition and it had a quality feel to it. Feelt like "real" rubber and not plastic like some sheets do.

Speed, once again, my suspicions are confirmed when it comes to those in build speed glue effect rubbers, what manufacturers are doing is to increase the speed and nothing else. This was a fast rubber, almost as fast as the unglued Nano Cannon, which I believe has a thicker sponge. Plenty of speed to hit winners from way behind the table.

Spin, actually a nice surprise, spin in short game was decent, comparable to the Nano Cannon, but from distance... This rubber surprised me as it was easier to generate spin with from distance then NC, despite the rather hard feel of it. Now, I didn't pull of any monster loops with it, but I was able to generate enough spin to keep the ball on the table, despite being used to tacky rubbers.

Short game, this rubber was a tad bouncy, but not as bad as I suspected it would be, considering its top speed. The rubber felt a tad more geared then the NC, or at least, it had lower gears.

Reasons to buy this rubber:
Not all that expensive, considering its Hallmark and build in glue effect.
Gives you all the speed you need.
Good control in every distance.

Reasons to avoid this rubber:
Didn't really have a glue feel to it, so cheaper options are available.
Felt kind of dead on impact, only by feeling, not by reaction, the shots were fast and spinny enough but I couldn't really "feel" the hit.

Who should use it?
Not me Wink Cause even if it was better then I expected, it wasn't better then 999 EN. I think this rubber would be a good Bh rubber for a two winged looper who plays from mid-distance. To me, it felt to hard to use on Fh but it didn't bother me as much on Bh.
