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...

 Hao Shuai Champion blade review:

A friend was kind enough to lend me this blade so that I could try it (thanks Alan!)

This is one of the latest and top blades from Friendship. I found the quality to be very good, and it’s light weight around 80g. The handle is a little thicker than many of their blades, and is very comfortable.

The blade is not as fast as many carbon blades, but it has excellent feel and control. It feel much softer than most carbon blades I have tried, and does not have much vibration.

I found it best for hitting and blocking (as with most carbon blades), but better than most carbon blades for looping, and I could get decent spin. Even chopping was an option, but the reduced dwell time of carbon blades gave it a little less control for this.

In conclusion it’s a very nice light weight carbon blade with a comfortable handle. It has a soft feel for a carbon blade, making it suitable for looping, but it’s best for driving/hitting and blocking style game. Alex...


Hao Shuai blade: This blade does have a "large sweet spot" like they describe on ZeroPong.  It's a very very good blade for players who would like to play control-attack-loop close-to-the-table kind of game.  Power?  Not as much like Hinoki Carbon and Super Carbon.  However, the control is much better.  Recommended for close-to-the-table attackers. Speedy…


Intermediate offensive wood with somewhat harder feel (however not as bang hard as classical Chinese woods!). External veneers from Ayous, internal from Hinoki, core Ayous. The first option side is additionally underlaid with carbon and thus one tick, if also not much, faster than the back hand side. Optimally for the tactical attack play with occasional play from the half distance. A large “Sweet Spot” causes relatively high ball control. A further advantage is the low weight - by the manufacturer indicated as 84 gr, on average even material 82 gr. Very clean processing. New for 2006 from Friendship - the improvement over earlier blades is clearly noticeable!. German reviewer...
