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...

Comments:  

LKT PRO XT utilizes tackiness with modern elasticity. A thin, tacky top sheet with a specially designed under pip structure generates a shocking quantity of spin with the most compact stroke. PRO XT is an excellent weapon for the 3rd ball attack as well as the compact loop. This rubber is rumoured to work very well with speed glue as well.

LKT XP & XT

I have.  If you're a gluer they rock.  I've got a thread back there somewhere about them.  They have as good a glue cork as anything I have including my high dollar yellow gp3 sponges.  They're so light it's almost too light.  I have a cut sheet of red xt that's 32g, and a whole sheet is 49.  I'd like them to be a little tackier, at least the red, but the sponge is so soft they still spin, and on topspin the spin is right up there with rubbers like supersonic s40.

I just want to say that after 6-10 months playing 2-4 times a week with Black Globe 999T on a 2.0mm 38 Japanese sponge I have found a worthwhile replacement:

The LKT Pro XT sheet

-much much lighter

-noticeably less tacky

-produces far more mechanical spin.

It also produces a resoundingly suspicious "F3-like" *POP!* during smashes and drives. And like the F3 it has a soft yellow sponge and a very soft topsheet. However, unlike F3 it is somewhat tacky and provides greater versatility on serves.

 

I second that - the black LKT Pro XT will be my forhand rubber of choice today until I reached 2000, not glued. :-D Don't know about the red.

It is soft and light, but not that kind of soft based on a less quailty sponge ( substantically more holes), unlike lighter Chinese rubber I had tried. As far as I can tell, the topsheet is less attractive comparing to other German/Japaness rubber right out of enevlop, but it plays everything I ever wanted better than any rubber I owned so far, whether it is just right on my current blade or not, I am not sure.

The black topsheet looks somewhat similar to other Chinese rubber I owned (729, DHS, 999) yet is soft and tacky, but not so sticky. It kind of increase my confident in looping underspin.

 

I've been using 2 or 3 layers of speedglue on it. Sound was not as loud as i expected, but maybe just because it needs to be broken in more to get the sound, but still nice corky sound when hit. very spinny for even small strokes, on hard strokes, it feels like a donic desto rubber. its pretty fast, maybe slightly slower then innova premium. control is better then the innova premium, and spin is higher too. it is lighter then the innova premium too, and makes it one of the lightest rubbers i have yet to try. hard to do touch shots and drop shots on the xt though.

 

XT -- very smooth sponge, smoother than DONIC F3, the rubber sheet is slightly tacky -- if we compare the degree of hardness with japanese or european sponges, i would say that this ais about 33 (similar to GP3 for the specialistes), the sponge is quite reactive like tensor sponge , may be a little bit slower than DONIC F3.

 

I tried the XT Friday. It's the best Chinese rubber, speedglued, that I have ever used. It has great click and speed. I think speedgluing loopers might really like it.

 

They have very soft sponge and they glue just as loud as some of the more expensive sponges I pay high dollar for.  Better than, say, dawei cannon.  I'm just wishing theyd get them up on the site so some people would try them and I can get a second opinion.

The LKT rubbers aren't very tacky either, although the XT version is a little tackier than the goldway.  The xt version probably compares with red regular geospin or higher in it's tackiness.  The XP feels more like highpoint or some donic rubber.  By the way, the topsheets are much prettier than what we've had to this point, and even the lettering is very sharp.
