Ask The Experts: Wenting Zha, No. 264 Butterfly Table Tennis Question and Answer
I know flextra is the best rubber to learn the feeling of the ball, but I wonder if tackiness chop is a good rubber to learn the feeling of the ball too? I’m just learning to play but I like the defensive style, so I wonder if tackiness chop is a good option for my back hand along with flextra on my forehand. I use a defensive blade.
Your Ask the Experts question was answered by Wenting Zha. She is one of the coaches at the Champion Star International Academy. Coach Zha’s response is as follows:
Thank you for reaching out to us, I am happy to assist with your question.
According to the information you have provided, I would recommend that you haveTackiness Chopon your backhand along withFlextra on your forehand or a long pip rubber.
To have a better feeling of controlling the ball, Tackiness Chop can create heavy underspin against a variety of shots. It produces much greater spin than Flextra. With Anti-Spin or Long Pips on the other side, it can generate quite favorable results.
Feint Soft is a standard long pips-out rubber that is outstanding for chopping against topspin drives. The long pips will send your opponent’s spin back to them. Usually used in combination with a high spin inverted rubber to force errors from the opponent.
Flextra, which you are currently using is perfect for the beginning player and those who like to vary the speed and spin as a defensive player.
Hope you find the answer is helpful!
