How is this possible? The reason plexicushion is slower is because of the high bounce, allowing players more time to retrieve balls.

If a ball is bouncing low, players have less time to get them back, s I can't understand how slow and low is possible by way of physics. Unless you think rebound ace absorbed the energy of the balls as they bounced, but for that to be true it would need to be a very sticky surface.
