Table Tennis is a very fast sport as you know and we usually don't have a lot of time to do big strokes. Especially on the backhand side. Is it a good idea to just use a counterhit or drive to hit balls on the backhand side and just rely on good control and good placement to win points? I think this way it's faster to recover. Then having a big backhand topspin.
It is a matter of how much time you have and how early you are seeing the ball.
If you are struggling for time then a controlled backhand is the way to go. You can then start to add a little more wrist into the stroke which will give you extra speed without too much more effort.
If you have more time then you can start to think about a bigger backhand.
