View Full Version : Jean-Mi and Vladi's equipment

07-17-2011, 06:13 PM
Today I saw the final between Vladimir Samsonov and J.M Saive live on ITTF's site, and the match was awesome! :D

But I noticed that the blade of Samsonov looked different, it was some sort of blue I think, looked like Timo Bolls blade... Does anyone know if he has a new blade? :)

It also looked like a Cornilleau logo on the black rubber of Saive... Isn't he supposed to use Calibras?

Feel free to discuss this, and Im happy if anyone knows anything about this :)

Well I don't know anything about the new equipment but in my interviews with them on here it has the equipment from last year on if you wanted to double check :)

@ Gabrielle - Hello and welcome. You should introduce yourself in the Intro Thread. http://www.tabletennisdaily.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?12-Introduce-yourself-to-the-forum!-%29 I think you'll find many helpful tips and great discussions here.

As to your question, I'd need to know what level you were thinking of.

At the Recreational Level I recommend a $300-$500 range Table. Something from the name brands, but if you can find a used table that's in good condition that would be a good price to pay as well.

Balls can range from being $0.10 - $4.00 per ball depending on how many you order at a time and which brands you use. Also the quality of the ball can really diminish the cost of the ball. The Gambler Silvers sell at I believe $15.00 for a Gross which is just over 10 cents per ball, but tack on shipping and you're looking at about $0.15 per ball. They're a great recreational ball.

Paddles can cost anywhere from the $10 - $100 range depending on what you're looking for and again what brands you choose. I recommend trying out a LoopSonic From LKT via www.zeropong.com if you're looking for something that's cheap, but will also last for the average rec player.

If you're looking at apparel that is almost always at brand price of $20 - $100 per jersey and the same for shorts. Shoes cost usually from $40 - $150 depending on what brands you choose. Head bands and wrist bands also go upwards of $10 - $20. Again buying in bulk can help to reduce the price per item.

If you're looking for something at the U.S. competitive levels I would suggest the $500 - $700 range tables for club purposes or just practicing at home, Balls probably a minimum of $30.00 for a gross of Gambler Gold balls (orange in color are the best quality). $45 - $ 200 in Paddle prices depending on where you get it from. I would suggest the $50 - $100 range for shoes and whatever apparel you'd like whether shorts, skirts, skorts, jerseys, head bands, and whatever else you'd like.

If you can give me an idea of what you'd like to spend and what level you're looking for there are a bunch of us here that can help out with pricing and such.
