Butterfly Table Tennis Question and AnswerQuestion:
Hi, I am looking at buying a new bat. I am left handed and have an attacking forehand with quite a fast rubber. One area I need to improve upon is being able to topspin a chop. Currently I often get dictated to in rallies because if my opponent chops to my forehand, I tend to have to chop back. I know a lot of it is down to me and how I play the shot, but can you suggest what type of rubber would help me with this please without losing a lot of the speed? Any advice on rubber thickness and blade type that could also possibly help would also be appreciated please. Thanks.

For the rubber, Tenergy 05 would be the recommendation as the rubber give you spin without losing the speed. The rubber thickness should be 2.1.
