Hello Alois and Jeff,
As of late I was really wondering whether to start playing with long pimples. I have a very strong forehand with a good defensive backhand but very bad at playing offensive strokes. I'm more likely to get a winner pushing than by attacking.
Now on to my question, do you think it would suit me best to play defence close to the table (chop block style) and play the forehand side offensively? I don't really see this type of play much as most modern defenders play chop far away from the table.
P.S. I'm really curious as to what LP rubber you guys used in the chop block video.
I think that would be a reasonable style to try. It is a lot of fun to play that way anyway.
You could incorporate twiddling the bat and using the rubber on the backhand side sometimes to push as well.
For that video I really don't remember what long pimple we were using but it may have been using but it could have been Air Upupupup. Just a sheet of long pimples I had on a bat.
