Hi Alois. I noticed that I can't use the exact same stroke when I loop backspin with inverted rubber. How should I play this stroke with the short pimple rubber on the backhand side?

Hi Jasper,

You need to use a flatter stroke.  Contact the ball from a higher position and hit more forward on the ball.  The backspin doesn't react with the short pimple as much as it does with an inverted rubber.

Thanks. I have gotten the hang of looping backspin with the short pips!
