spins: topspin vs backspin

Post by iJacky on Wed May 06, 2009 4:02 pm

there r typically 2 types of spin either being topspin or backspin =)
topspin shots r usually generated by offensive players...
n backspin shots r usually generated by defensive players...
this is coz topspin shots r more aggressive n backspin shots r more passive =)

u can determine whether a shot has topspin or backspin by observing its bounces =)
a topspin shot will usually drop after touching the table...
n a backspin shot will usually rise after touching the table...
this is coz after a shot touches the table its spin is reversed =)

p.s. there is also another type of spin being sidespin =)
sidespin shots r usually generated by both offensive n defensive players...
this is coz u can mix sidespin w/ either topspin or backspin shots =)

Backspin is usually a chopping/slicing movement while topspin is a brushing movement.

coz moving downwards generates backspin...
