Hi when i was watching the new video of ttperfection i have saw one thing:

the video is this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=ADxmnRVdn4g#!

if you see the min 5:27 you can see that ma long is using the Timo Boll ALC. Sometimes here someone says that european blades are not made to be used with chinese rubbers but as you can see one of the best chinese player used it

It has an European player's name on it but it is indeed Made in Japan by Butterfly so don't think it should be classified as European blade. In fact there are lots of Chinese players using European blades with Chinese rubbers such as Stiga, which is the official blade supplier to the CNT.

yes i now but i consider Butterfly as a european/japonese brand and in the other hand the Chinese brand as Dhs and other.

I see but I don't think it is appropriate to classified anything outside China as European. Japan and Korea TT makers are still Asian you know :rolleyes:. BTW there are so many Made in China blades structured similar to TB ALC, such as DHS Hurricane Long. So using Chinese rubbers with them should not be a problem.
