You will never get a definitive video of what a "actual NTRP 3.5 " looks like. 3.5 is a wide ranging level of skill and technique. People with ugly technique can win with consistency and are indeed legitimate 3.5s even though they may look like 3.0s. People who look like 4.0-4.5 level players can be 3.5s because they can't keep the ball in the court. In reality it doesn't really even matter. The numbers and cutoffs are arbitrary. They are only meaningful in the context local league or tournament or club you are playing .
Thank you for your response....good, meaningful info'. I'm finding that the "consistency" of being a better player and doing these things less often is coming incrementally, but it is coming.
