I think if fast dry cloth made a huge difference, the day after the JS 626, Danny Harriman would have ripped apart his table and installed a new cloth and massive heaters. He did try that, didn't he?
Hohman, Filler, Ko, Orcollo and many others as well.
There's all kinds of variables, but the biggest one is the player's skill, which Schmidt seems to have.
I don't know, ask them.
And it has been proven in many sports that player skill can be amplified with the right conditions/equipment.
