|Yeah, you can hit through the ball with it ok. It's a fairly hard sponge so it defers to the blade. But then I've seen people attack with a hock too.|
I swear that guy must have stolen that term from me. When I chop with that stuff it really does feel like a hock. I don't know if you've ever used a hock, but it has a really low "blocky" tone. When I say blocky, I mean like those musical blocks with the little sticks you hit them with.
Anyway, I am used to chopping with modern chinese rubbers so I take really thin slices. I couldn't even chop over the net with the hock, which requires a very hard chop (like real choppers really do). I couldn't wait to give mine away. I gave it to carl miller who's a 1900 hardbat player.
