My friend Rokphish, the way you wrote this, some people might think you are a stalker !! 
 
You are easily a TT enthusist who lives more than his fair share of TT dreams. You have also met other forum members in other continents and epic encounters. Keep the dreams alive... The TT forums help make this happen.

JimT, I know you said you were satisfied with your current blades..I just want to say that I didn't initially like either Fl or regular straight handle on Nittaku Violin,but
I found a solution-grip tape-soft,made out of leather like material.So in the future,if temptation will again dominate,a heavy weight Violin and a piece of tape could do some good things for you.I think you don't need anything else anymore,though.
Oh,these rubbers are Gambler wraigh?

I am basically playing either with DS 90 or with Nexy Color - my other main blade WRC-10 has a slightly more aggressive balance (into the head) and it is not always good for me. I also tried Nittaku Violin a few days ago and it plays great but I cannot come to grips (Tongue) with its tiny short handle.

I will try and ask someone to film me playing with DS 90 - then I will of course edit it to make me look like a table tennis giant that I am Wink... then I will post it as well.

Thanks for the kind words.

wish you had your speed 90 and just some longer video episode.i think speed 90 is meant for you just fine,though i don't know how the other blade feels in comparison with speed 90.

Oh that's what all my girlfriends keep telling me, Rob Wink

I wish I were in my 20s - then I would be really ripping it up. I was 30 pounds lighter then and didn't have any knee or back problems. Not to mention, a lot more time for practices and tournaments...

Hi guys,

I generally hate my videos but here I decided to publish this one, since it's just fun. Our coach brought in his friend from many years ago (I think they played together in India when they were juniors) - Kamal Sharath Achanta, WR #72. He had some demo practice and short matches with a lot of us - I would guess more than a dozen people played him.

He is very nice, quiet guy - he played great tennis with a completely new (to him) setup provided to him by Killerspin, his new sponsor.

So anyway, we had fun. I edited the video to get rid of some embarassing (to me) moments, so as you can see I win all the time!! Wink Makes me wonder why I am not in the top ten yet...

JimT vs Kamal Achanta

I like your Style JimT. Excellant play. For some strange reason I though you were a lot younger (in your 20's).Shocked

It wasn't always a sponge bob... was it?
I think you had another avatar when I 1st joined.

Good stuff. I am impressed with your play. I played a fairly high ranking player once and he did the same thing as you mentioned above: controlled, relaxed play -- with amazing spin variation and measured loops. It is so amazing to play with a good player... it must have been something altogether different to be able to play with a player of this caliber... lucky guy.

Great video + editing, Jim. You were murdering him.

That Wraith seems to be working very well for you. Glad to finally see the face behind the Spongebob icon.

With knee problem like that you moved aound pretty well JimT. And let me tell you, your BH is dangerous for any player regardless of their level.

Thanks! I really like it. I used cotton T-shirts first, then Dawei shirts from ColesTT, and I now I like this one from GuoQiu the best. I sweat a lot and this T-shirt is really good for me.

It was mostly unforced errors on my part, so actually that part is way more boring. Kamal didn't force anything. He knows how to play guys of my level in demo matches - the main idea for everyone is just to have fun and try not to overdo things.

I don't think your knee was the problem.  It's the dark socks with white athletic shoes Smile Great vid, buddy.

I happen to think that black socks in white sneakers is the ultimate TT weapon!

It fluctuates... I don't play a lot of tourneys and the ones I play it's hard to change my rating since there is not a lot of people in New England with ratings above 1900-2000. Formally it is around 1900 but I (of course! Wink) believe it should be higher... like 2037 or smth... especially when I fix my bum knee and lose another 10 pounds of fat.
