We never seem to know in the UK what is the best Aussie Lager, we are led to believe through ads, its Fosters, or maybe Castle maine 4x, Is that true Boz? or is there some special Aussie stuff we don't know about? BTW, hold a loose grip on short service return on the half volley, this acts like a 'shock absorber' for long deep pushes, hold tighter.

XXXX stands for sXXt - its what i grew up on because my dad always buy it as its from Brisbane - factory right next to my primary school - smell of gas yay
 
fosters is for all you silly people who have no idea that nobody in australia drinks it, honestly nobody I have ever seen drinks that beer, I tried it once in a German "Aussie" bar/pub = yuk.
 
if you want to know what most people drink its VB = victoria bitter
 
but the best by far is Coopers -

Australians don't often drink Fosters (I never see anyone drink it)

In Victoria most people would give you a list like this of the best beers in Australia (it's different depending where you live)

Crown Lager
Carlton Draught
Cascade light
Melbourne bitter (this and VB below are the two most common but perhaps not the best)
Victoria bitter

Cool by me, Im the same - Im an English teacher and I couldnt give a 3456 about spelling on this forum - as long as the message gets across.
 
Ok back on topic - tonight I stuck to my promise to myself - to use t25 from the moment I stepped in the club on my bh and 05 on fh - guess what - my fh suddenly improved and my backhand went to the dogs.   Especially on active attacking shots my backhand just became a mildly speed glued bryce - everyone was so comfortable with it except for a few rockets. so all I can say is t25 doesnt improve my game in anyway.
 
Actually I played better tongith than I have for a long time, I got really close to beating one of the best players in 11:9 in the 5th, havent come close for a long time, the major difference was that I stepped around for my fh on all the serves bar a few which I stood far back and pushed hard with the 25.  before that every bh loop i attempted as an open was a loser.  My fh was back to what it was before I had this whole injury trash which lasted months. 
 
IM SO DAM HAPPY MY FH DOESNT HURT - you have no idea how much it sucks to try and play and win with half your game!  
 
Im not sure what to do with the t25 - Ive give it a couple of weeks now and Im positive it just doesnt suit my style of counterlooping the ball as its dropping, Im just not good at the whole at the table thing - I love to go fish and attack from the unexpected places undder the table....
 
 
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa    love 05 so much its been ages and nothing comes close!!!!!

Guess Imago didn't like to catch up on what beer we all drink...

Well, until you have tried "Innes and Gunns", you don't know what a good beer tastes like. It is matured in whiskey barrels and tastes delicious!

Boz, I don't envy you, spending all that money on rubbers =)

Nicefrog, I think that is a fairly accurate rating you have provided.

I can't really get to QLD anytime soon but I could go and have a hit in Melbourne with you if your travels ever bring you down there (I think you can hire tables at the Albert park stadium). You better make it in the midddle of Winter tho since that's the only time I'm in peak form :)

1. t05 both again
2. Imago - I got a bottle of whiskey at home i take swigs straight out of it - i know lots of people think yuk but i have the taste of whiskey mixed with cola or any other sweet stuff.  if anything i prefer a cola chaser.
 
But Imago I think you know Rakija?  Thats what we got all year round here.  Nothing like making it yourself and we dont have whiskey barrels we just stick a mullberry stick in it to give it that yellow mellow touch
 
Nice Frog - if I ever go I highly doubt I would go in winter - unless it was a ski trip

Rakiya is a very inconsistent product - there are heavenly liquids like muscat or slivovitza, but there are also lots of headbreaking fakes. And I never heard of 18-year old beer. This is important because I am a law-abiding person and don't mess with adolescents.

Like TT play, our drink must grow up in perfect conditions and proper timing.

Your bh is even better now Boz.

looks like solcion giving you more points than your tenergy.


but i still don't understand how this guy could be your clubs best player... he cant even keep his serves shorter and lower even after being beaten up so bad.


very nice game dude.. by the time you have hexer on your fh... you may even beat him below 3 ;)

He isnt always the best - he was at the time  -  but he just was showing zero respect and being lazy - he wants to serve long because he knows short balls I can flick where as long he can block or kill
 
He does know how to serve short that is what was frustrating me  -
 
as for Hexer Im not sure - a few people have said its just too slow

I run into this too, when better players will just forego parts of their game to keep it interesting for themselves. That's fine. It's all good practice!

Actually the last 3 or 4 practise matches sessions we had I beat him on average 60%

We usually play about 10 games per session and at first I thought it was only because it was not a real match - but this vid prooves that even if its a fixture match i can get close. 
 
I think if it were a tournament though hed probably wake up a bit

Danger guys, Its only too easy to get in your 'comfort zone' playing the same players regularly, through time, you get very used to their body language, it makes you feel that you are playing better than you really are. Best form is not to play games so much. I find an Ideal alternative is to play 'two serves up' whereby you keep serving until the oppo wins two on the trot, then he serves and vice versa. You still have the 'comfort zone' problem but it is less pronounced because you are playing for every point.

Bozzy. I'm glad to see you're advancing, but I think you should try exploring other aspects of the game. It can be hard to do when you're seeing fruits of your labour and creating results, but i feel you will absolutely run yourself against a wall at some point.

You said it yourself "Whoever opens first, wins". While this isn't necessarily true, imo, your long services are allowing your opponents exactly that. Exploring the short part of the game is incredibly important once you start playing against better opponents. They will open on your services, and not just bounce them back, they will "exploit" the third ball attack.

I feel you're improving, but i also feel your game is very one sided which may net you results against certain types of players, but will leave you wondering what went wrong, against others. Get a few cases of balls, develop a new service. Practice short game. Footwork footwork footwork. Try to position yourself in a way so that when you loop with your FH, you use the almost full reach of your arm. This won't just give you more power, but will let you cover a larger part of the table, and will will give you more confidence psychologically.

Its hard to practice these things in a game as we're all competitive and result minded, mostly. Do you have one or more practicepartners to run drills with?

I hope you took my comments as constructive criticism : )
Cheers

I'd just like to revisit this thread a little after i've had a chance to play boz' opponent in this video. He's a fairly tight player and really punishes mistakes with that forehand. I found myself keeping the ball short mid table a lot and flicking from the backhand and trying to keep the rally there until i could open up angle on a weak ball to my forehand.

Serving long is still quite effective for a change up.

Did you keep it mid table because that's roughly the elbow?
