      Caronavirus & Tokyo 2020

      To me, which is a subjective thing, it lacked ‘clarity of feeling’ and I could not come to terms with its rebound. I had expected a different feeling, a different power curve. Disappointment is...

      I glue a lot for other people and am extra careful when prying off rubber from Stiga blades. I have seen the top veneer splinter.

      “widely used” or “popular” has anything to do with it.

      Note that I didn’t mention pricing at all; that would, in my view, would be irrelevant when discussing qualitative aspects.

      Best Brand Over-all?

      I like some, quite a few even, products marketed under that brand. I dislike others.

      Like: Tenergy 05, Sriver-L of yore, Dignics 05, Dignics 80, SpinArt, Rozena, Viscaria, Innerforce ALC,...

      All Japan Championship 2020 Jan 13-19

      Hat off to Uda.
