This helps NONE maybe if it helped you... IT WOULD BE MORE USEFUL!!! You could also just put some magnets on your paddle. If your buddy asks about them, say it's some crazy medical procedure (I don't know, okay?)

Even though this would change the bounce, I highly doubt that it would be an advantage to either player.

I'm sorry, but I don't get how this helps you cheat
try a ping pong paint ball that would be cool they hit it and it explodes yea (dont do that over your own house it will probaly make a mess but wont stsain
wow..... you could just add a small dab of hot glue on the ping pong ball and it would work to.

If you're this desperate to cheat, you could just throw your paddle at them. You can't loose against a unconscious opponent! (JK Don't do this)

Winners never cheat and cheaters never win.
cheaters win unless they get caught
wrong. cheaters always win and winners are always cheaters. its all about perception of the 'cheating'
How wrong you are.
yea. what a lie that guy just told.

100percent:D
they can have a lot of fun before being busted, though.
what does it do
acaz93 (author)  litledrumdrumbigblack5 years ago
Since the screw gives a little off-weight the ball looses balance and change it's trajectory

What happened to the "be nice" policy?

YAH , BUT HEY YOU WERE HAVING FUN

I might try something like that but with paint injected into the ball...

COOL but when they hit it back isnt it equally hard to hit ??
No because they won't be able to hit it back lol. On the serve you hold it so that it will hit the flat side of the ball on your side, and when it goes to their side it hits the screw and they fail.

This is really smart and I will probably use this against my bro in a mini tournament I shall have with him...

inject the ball with glue so it rests like 1/2 full, then no-one will see it
awesome! how would you get them not to suspect you if they saw a hole though?
"inject" and sand the tiny glue-hole smooth
then you could paint it.
acaz93 (author)  adamthiede6 years ago
you can use a little white-out or paper corrector , to , you know ,cheat
acaz93 (author)  theRIAA6 years ago
Good idea , Yes , actually it may work and look less 'cheating' so The 'cheating engine ' will be cloaked Thanks for the idea :p
alright! make the ball's flightpath unpredictable! that's SURE to help you win!
EnigmaMax6 years ago
nice, but that screw is pretty obvious to see and hear...
lol nice but you should paint it white so you cant see the screw.
