I am 52 years old and a beginner ((obviously a very rare and unusual species :-) ): According to your experience...what is the MINIMUM thickness of sponge of Mark V that you would recommend to learn with? More specific: I´m more interested in control than in speed, but at the same time I don´t want the sponge to be too thin for learning top spin....and...I´d like the same sponge thickness on forehand and backhand.
Thanks for your excellent website !!!
You are not such a rare breed. We have discovered a lot of these creatures lurking around the internet...
Regarding the rubber thickness, probably 1.5mm but even 1.8mm won’t be too fast to learn the strokes. I would go for the 1.8mm on both sides. If that is not available go for 2mm.
