Butterfly Table Tennis Question and Answer
I needed a suggestion regarding my backhand rubber.
I am an intermediate level table tennis player from Bangladesh. Usually i am a typical forehand based attacker. And little bit defensive in backhand. Being a chopper on spinny shot with a plain rubber (tenergy 05fx) is my speciality and i really enjoy that. But being a chopper with tenergy 05fx is tougher as i had Donic jo gold before. So, i was thinking of using Tackiness II for my backhand as it is not that fast and defensive with a tacky surface Could you please suggest me anything on this issue? Thanks in advance.
Your Ask the Experts question was answered by Zhou Xin. He is a Coach at the ICC Table Tennis in Milpitas, California. Coach Zhou’s response is as follows:
You have a great combination of rubbers.
However, as you described, your style is more on the defensive side. Tenergy 05 FX could be a little bit too fast for you especially when chopping. I agree with your assessment that you should use a slower rubber.
Hope this helps. Stay safe.
