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...

LKT blade, the ďAyous HinokiĒ with a Flared handle. This is one of the 'top of the range' and the very latest blade from LKT! Note LKT are close related to 729 Friendship, and have many high quality products mainly targeting the western markets.

The LKT Ayous Hinoki blade is made for modern attacking style of play. Itís a high quality 5 ply blade with Hinoki inner ply's with top grade Ayous outer ply. Hinoki and Ayous are highly sought after material because of their unique properties, and are normally only used on the top of the range blades.

This blade offers outstanding control, and with the combination of Ayous and Hinoki it offers huge spin (because the of the high dwell time) and good power even from mid-far distance. Click for a hi-res picture of the LKT Ayous Hinoki blade.

 LKT Ayous Hinoki blade review:

The Blade is a control oriented Off- and one of the better all wood Chinese blades I have come across. The Ayous Hinoki has the typical small flair, but is a very nice blade. The tone is a somewhere between the Instinct and Instinct+, making it a little harder and faster than something like Primorac, but still very high control for a Chinese blade

Itís good, it is a light Off wood around 80gr on the balance, the handle is a hair larger than the handles friendship concave, easier to hold in your hand. What surprised in first it is the enormous control of wood, I thought that it was going to miss speed, but not the Hinoki folds give a blow of whip in the speed, which one wants to accelerate the ball.

I will buy the new a LKT Ayous-Hinoki which is goes very well with F3, a loud noise, and the power of spin is enormous (super topspin from around 4 meters behind the table!) I just like the control which is offered by this wood, the characteristics that I did not find with my Jonyer-H or the JZ Kevlar ultra topspin. I think that the combination of the plies of ayous-hinoki-balsa is perfect for Formula DONIC!
