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...

The characteristics of the covering make each defense player perfectly control or spin the ball.



  • High speed inverted rubber  
  • Rubber specifically designed for defense
  • ITTF/USATT/CTTA approved  

Ratings (out of 12):

  • Speed: 9
  • Spin: 10
  • Control: 11


            This rubber is the new and improved version of the famous PF4 rubber. It is used by many players around the world, specifically for defense. The topsheet is very tacky and able to produce enormous amounts of spin. The sponge is hard, slow and dead, thereby able to produce outstanding control and variation of spin. 

User Reviews (from internet/newsgroups):

Pf4-1 is a hard sponge, but it's a high control defensive rubber, cause it's a dead but hard sponge.

Most Tacky Chinese rubber: PF4-1 from DHS

Pf4-1 is cool too, a bit dead, but great for chops and very spinny.....esp on a budget..
