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 Highpoint review:
Review by Martinspin

I want tell you about a real alternative in tensor rubbers. For over two weeks, I've discovered the High Point and I'm very impressed. The rubber is a German-Chinese production. The company ESN is in any case involved. In contrast to the pure ESN coverings such as the Nimbus the High Point plays clearly Asian. The upper layer is not sticky and developed to produce much spin after being accelerated much. After a few layers with glue, the rubber softens permanently and plays faster and spinnier as the Nimbus. The sponge is a little bit harder then the topsheet and that's the needs of each rotation player: harder spong and softer topsheet. The versions with 2.0 mm and 2.2 mm are almost identical and differ only by the sponge hardness. The 2.0 mm sponge is often softer then the the 2.2 rubber sponge. This rubber is in any case fit for a stiff wood up to BTY Korbel OFF and higher. The throw angle of the rubber is rather flat and the speed in comparison to other tension rubbers is very high. His strengths lie in the acceleration and in meetings at the highest points of the ball curve.


Serve and return
Despite the obvious only gripy topsheet serves are often underestimated. It is the whole repertoire of spin possible and because of the flat throw angle most serves are very effective. Due to the rather flat curve aggressive returns are not easy to play. An aggressive flip is not very easy. Better make it the ball short and respond in a next step with a topspin. Pushes with a lot of wrist have a lot of spin and are not easy to loop.

Block, Counter and Shot
A strength of the rubber is the safe play with the rotationsless strokes. Compared with a sticky surfaces this strokes can be very safe and hard. Those who previously played with China coverings, you will enjoy the qualities of this rubber. As with many Asian coverings High Point needs a good hand and a secure eye for the incoming ball. If the ball is high enough, however, a powerful blow spin is the highest of emotions with this surface.

Loop and Counterloop
Despite the good opportunities with rotationless balls this covering has their real strengths in a game with lot of spin. Because of the flat trajectory is not easy to opening and it should be played with more feeling than with brute force. With a lot of movement acceleration a lot of opponents are surprised about the fast loops. They note that the ball is falling down very quickly because of the extreme spin after the contact with the table. The ball is often not taken and there are many quick points. The best quality of the rubber is the ability to counter loop. Because of the relative spin insensitivity you can counterloope with the High Point extremely effective at the table.

Push and Chop
As mentioned above, a wide repertoire of variations interfaces. In very flat movements can be produced much backspin and with a more steep racket is a kind of "pushing" possible that hasn't almost nothing in the balls. Although the rubber is more offensively oriented, it will also be well for defensive balls from the mid-distance. As almost no difference to expect much wrist is needed to keep a lot of backspin

The following is some short reviews of strokes on a scale of 1 (min) to 5 (max)

Loops: 4
Countertopspin: 4 +
Hard topspin: -5
Block: 4 +
Counter: -5
Shots: 5
Serve and return: -5
Push: 4 +
Defense: 4

Conclusion
How to obtain used this assessments, the High Point is a covering that is very fit for a play stroking the ball at the highest point of the curve. This means ultimately that this surface per se is suitable for a game at the table or a near half distance. Hope you will enjoy this wonderfull rubber.

Review:

Highpoint is pretty much as fast as f2 say maybe 99% as fast.
and that 1% that is missing is just in everyones head.
However, it has a lower throw, harder sponge and not as spinny or bouncy.
Its great for hitting and fast loops. Blocking and countering are good as well. Its a good rubber.
Its just not F2, F2 is more suited to the slower loops with more spin and higher arc
F2 feels tentioned Highpoint feels fast, but not tentioned. It dosent have the same noise.
So my conclusion after trying the following:
F2 and highpoint on clipper vs person, F2 and highpoint on wavestone vs person, F2 and highpoint on clipper vs robot, F2 and highpoint on wavestone vs robot
Highpoint is a good rubber but it is not an f2 clone/replica
 

This is the only rubber I carry that is completely made in someplace other than china.  It is a 100% European-made rubber from the ESN factory that makes Donic, Tibhar, Joola, etc.  This rubber is an exact replica of Donic Desto F2, other than a couple of changes to make it more durable.  Desto F2 is the only rubber that I've ever tried that actually fooled me into thinking it was glued when it wasn't, and this rubber is the same.
