hi alois and jeff,

i have friendship 729-02 on my fh and mark v on my bh....and i find chopping easier from my bh than on my fh...when i chop using 729 it just floats and lands outside the table whereas when i do the same with my mark v on my fh it lands perfectly..what could be the possible reason?chinese and non chinese rubber behaviour? 

my 2nd question is that are chinese rubbers less active towards backspins coz when i chop a ball and my opponent who uses a chinese rubber he easily picks it up but when he uses for example mark v or bluefire he isnt able to do so... 


and happy friendship day to both of u

Hi Shubham,

Happy Friendship day to you...?

The Chinese rubbers have a different trajectory and tend to have a higher throw angle.  A lot of defenders prefer the Chinese rubbers for this reason.

You seem to be more used to the trajectory with the Mark V.  It is a matter of adjusting your stroke very slightly, perhaps a subtle change of the angle of your racket, to get the ball on the table.
