Hi Everyone,

Thought it would be cool if we will all tried to guess what Stiga will name their new rubbers that are set to release in May 2013. I saw Dan's post about the new rubbers which you can find here (http://www.tabletennisdaily.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?4390-Stiga-to-launch-3-new-rubbers-in-May-2013)

My guess, they will be called 'Stiga Storm'

What do you think?

In the other thread, I suggested that Stiga take advantage of Sweden's good name in TT history by using a word from the Swedish language.

I suggest välgörande (http://en.dicios.com/sven/valgorande) meaning, advantage.

Nah, I honestly don't know..

Rather than trying to guess the name, which, as XIII suggested, is pretty near impossible, why not suggest names you think would be good for a new rubber, as Tinykin did in the original thread? I am guessing this is Stiga trying to offer an upgrade on the Calibra series. And I believe Calibra was an upgrade on the Boost series.

What would you call Stiga's next generation of rubbers?

Rferdianto, did you get S1/2/3 from the ITTF rubber list? I saw them in the list but I think I've seen those rubbers on factory premades already. I'm not sure though, so they may well be the names of these new 2013 rubbers.
http://www.ittf.com/_front_page/ittf1.asp?category=rubber if anyone is interested.

Otherwise, I can't find a consistent red thread in their names. Mendo (?), Magna (great), Boost (good name for a post-glue ban rubber), Calibra (suggesting high calibre performance) Almana (Germany), Neos (new), Carbo MC (empty marketing fluff).

They just released the names! Calibra Tour S (For people with lower hitting power) DAN must be the one for you ;), Calibra Tour M (For people with medium strong hitting power) and Calibra Tour H (For people with strong hitting power) :). The capital letter is obviously related to the hardness.

It will be availible in May 2013.
