I've recently gone back to playing around with different rubbers on my BH (primarily antispin and SP this time around). This has posed a challenge for me when I am forced back from the table. Previously with a double inverted combination, one of my strengths has been to lob back smashes consistently until I had a chance to counter attack. However, it's really tough lobbing smashes when using antispin or SP. I suppose the other option might be to try and chop. Is it even possible to chop a smash??? If so, how do you do it?
When away from the table with anti you should definitely try to chop rather than lob.
Chopping can be quite easy because you don't need to deal with the spin, just chop straight through the ball. You may need to hit the ball harder than you would normally with inverted rubber.
The stroke remains the same just put a nit more power behind it.
