FYI, midsize frames with lead make the 1hbh vicious. My forehand is spinny (med to high spin) with better directional control. My backhand is flat to medium spin, but raw power. Learn:

1) the half swing block flat. Redirect pace. Block it where they have trouble reaching.

2) Full rip drive. If you can set first. Swing ultra high to spin it down. These shots are not coming back. This is where gut/poly comes in: these shots don't go long but they occasionally go wide if you're over-ambitious.

Heavy rackets perform better on 1hbh block shots. Just stick the racket out and flick it back to them.
