Haha speaking of John Wetzler, i just looked at his great record at JOOLA North American (that tournament on baltimore i think).

At least my friend got some revenge for me.  Colin Greenidge beat him :)

I completely agree PB.  Some people may have misinterpreted my posts buti 've been saying that the whole time.

If you look at the abundance of LP players playing tournaments today almost nobody uses very grippy long pips rubbers.

and i know John Wetzler.  I played against him in erie once as a practice game after he finished playing the rest of my team.  He did extremely well and was a VERY good player.  He beat my buddy who is a provincial player down in Canada and im sure that his style would probably beat me at that time too.  Im just hoping that i would fare better playing him now although i don't exactly remember how he plays.

Just remember he was great defensively
 
John has a great chop-block (as opposed to my push-block) and he has a great forehand.. If John pushes against underspin, the ball will come back either dead or with slight underspin.. His pips don't reverse well.. He uses a chop motion when blocking topspin to continue the spin. I personally use quite a different technique.. John achieves great underspin against topspin due to his chop motion when he blocks and I achieve heavy underspin by taking the ball right off the bounce.. I take the ball much earlier than John. John chop blocks at the table and I push-block over the table.. I don't let the ball come to me.. I go to the ball whenever possible. I have to prevent players from exploiting my one-sidedness. John doesn't have to worry about as his forehand is very strong! If I can get to the ball over the table, I prevent my opponents from moving me too much. As soon as a opponent is able to move me, I'm usually in trouble... However, very few can get me away from the table..

John has been above 2300 for a very long time.. He is one of the most consistent long pips blockers in the country.. probably the most consistent one.. He did have a bad tournament at the teams as he also lost to Jonathan Ou (a aspiring junior) who plays at my club..
 
Colin actually played on the team with another guy from my club... Andrew Slocombe!!

Anton, How could i possibly think that the exceptions r stupid?  I pointed out examples by myself.  The only things i called stupid was the ppl that kept saying that it will DEFINITELY not reverse the spin.  That is one thing i definitely called stupid.

Im not the only one confused here (i dont even see how im confused but u think so) because u clearly don't interpret my posts well.

I said the general rule is reverse except for some situations and strokes and i even point out the situations.

Also, I already said, my tone might make me really rude but i'm not earnestly insulting any1. 

anywayss, theres no point argueing about that because ur gonna say im rude and im just gonna keep saying i don't really mean that.

Also, im just putting an examle of 200-300.  Thats just a general rating.  this rating could go up to 5-600.  Im sure we've all seen upsets where say 2200 player lsoes to a 1600 player because the 1600 player could have been underrated or he was completely on his game, confidant playing agaisnt the higher rated player's style and the higher rated player was not playing well.

and quite honestly, I think i would qualify as 2000 usatt rating and i don';t think thats HIGH AT ALL.

I won u-1800 division 2 years ago wen i thought i was completely garbage in pensylvania.  Im much, mnuch better now and i think 2000 would be my lvl.

Now all of u r gonna go ahead and reply to my posts sayin im being cocky becuz i think im 2000.

2000 in my mind is absolutely nothing.  Players that are qualified as "good" shud be a minimal of 2200.  

Improving players always strive for high goals.  If i'm ever fortunate enough to get to 2200, im gonna think 2200 is garbage and 2400 is what i wanna be.  That applies for every1 im sure.

If everybody is offended by my posts then ill say I'M SORRY


I didn't say you were cocky because you implied you're around 2000. I said I doubt you're around 2000 because you're so cocky. There is a difference.

I think I'm interpreting your posts fine, it's just that you're quite inconsistent in your claims. If I quote from one post, you suggest one thing. If I quote from another, you suggest a different thing. This is why I claim you're "confused"... or perhaps you're just a poor communicator. The more I think about it, I think the issue is the latter. But whatever...

One thing I do agree with is that this argument has become pointless. I, for one, do appreciate the apology (although I know it was directed generally and not to me, but still...). Irrespective of the long pip discussion/issues, my primary concern is your initial lack of civility. But you seem willing to chill out and hopefully you can continue to conduct yourself consistently in such a manner. Thumbs Up

I don't know about John and the Seemiller grip.. There are several really strong guys from PA who  use the Seemiller grip. They always play at the Teams...

Thinking of canadians.. I recently beat the #39 of Canada (#1196 in the World and high 2700 Canadian Rating) at the Teams.. You probably know Bryan Michaud... Bryan did beat John Wetzler last year but lost to me this year.. Bryan actually has a excellent record against long pips blockers, beating 2 of the best in the last years (Robert Shahnazari and John Wetzler). I was VERY surprised that I was able to beat him..

The only thing i remember about the seemiller grip is they hold is so they can use the same rubber for forehand and backhand play.  However, becuz most of them have anti spin on the back, they can change and it's quite deceptive.

I saw Dan Semiller SR absoluetly tear my team apart and a lot of the junior players he brings from indiana or train are very good players too.

Weird style but Dan Semiller has had immense success back in the day playing this say

Wow thats a very good win.  2700 putting back into u.,s im guessing wud be 2250 about based on my buddys rating.  My buddy is uh 2975 i think and hes 2380?

but yeah bryan is a very good win.  I remember i saw him play this hueg provincial tournament back wen i was just starting to play.  Bright junior player with a hueg future ahead.  But for some reason, wen he hit about 2700, he plateued.  I heard some ppl said he stopped practicing as intense which is sad because he had enourmous potential to succeed.

However, he is still a VERY good player and wow thats a good win

If long pips, sponge or no sponge was able to loop 5-7 feet from the table what the hell would we need inverted rubbers for. 

do you even know what spin your long pips will get after looping with them?  

You're clearly a fricking idiot that doesn;t know anything their talking about.  LONG PIPS CANNOT DO WHAT INVERTED DOES DUMBASS.  Say u chop with inverted off a underspin ball frmo ur opponent , then your ball will go back underspin (unless u don't even know how to chop).

IF U CHOP WITH LONG PIPS OFF A UNDERSPIN BALL, ur shot will go back close to nospin and maybe a LITTLE bit of topspin.

UR stupid jonan, please don;t say u play long pips because if u honestly do, it just further proves how stupid you are.

Do your homework of long pips, and then come talk to me

Your just lucky you don't live near me, I'd slash your tires or get you fired from your job for talking to me like that, I've done it before for less. 

You're the ones who's clueless about the differences in long pip rubbers. The pip length, stiffness, friction and sponge thickness, lack of sponge and even blade change how it plays DRASTICALLY. Long pips like 755 are nothing like Grass D-tech which are nothing like P1-R which is nothing like Pogo. You can do totally different things with those pips. You CANT generalize strategies to all long pips just based on that they are a long pip, because the person will use them differently and they all require different strategies to use and play against.

Bryan actually had a rating above US 2300 for about 1 year.. Unfortunately (for me and for him), he dropped 160 points one tournament before I played him :(
 
He used to be consistently above US 2300 before than..   Instead of making 30 points against him, I only made 7 :(
 
BTW, my match against Bryan is on youtube.. Just do a  search for Mader Michaud and you'll find the match..

You sound awfully familiar to me... In which part of Canada are you currently playing?  What is your name?  Beat any known high-level U.S. player recently?  I am almost sure I know who you are...

Okay, enough. This is ridiculous. At the risk of stepping on the toes of "videos" mods, I'm closing this thread. They can re-open it if they think it's really necessary.
