    Currently i am using the above setup. I play some time spin on forehand and backhand jabbing. please suggest me if my setup is correct or not. Earlier i was using Timoboll ALC forehand Rasanter r47 and backhand xiom omega 4 pro. I play mostly away from the table and because of which my backhand jabbing have some issues. Let me know which setup was good or need to change the setup

    This Ask the Experts question was answered by Truong Tu. Truong plays at the Silicon Valley Table Tennis Club in San Jose, CA. Coach Tu’s response is as follows:

    Hi Vishal,

    If you are willing to change your blade, I would recommend the Mizutani Jun ZLC as it has great feeling for your away-from-the-table style of play.

     For the forehand, you made a great choice going with Tenergy 80 as it has the ability to create spin and a high angle of throw for your style.

     For the backhand, I would recommend Tenergy 64 which will give you more speed for your backhand jabbing; however, if you are able to stay a little closer to the table, then Tenergy 25 is a perfect match for your backhand jabbing.

    Best of luck!

    Coach Tu
