  1. "More than" is a difficult thing to be sure of,...

    "More than" is a difficult thing to be sure of, because different players will produce more/less spin with different rubbers depending on how they contact the ball, and on whether maximum spin (as...
  2. A handle that feels comfortable in your grip is...

    A handle that feels comfortable in your grip is important and worth changing blades for. I agree with the previous post that, if you can, you should find some blades to hold to find which is most...

    Superb play by Timo! The small variations from one shot to the next messed up LGY's rhythm, and kept the game at Timo's pace. A masterclass in tactical play!

    Why not stick with that? It's called the "Original No.1 Senso" now, but it's the same blade and is widely available.

    The thing that absolutely blows my mind is that - in light of the physical demands of the 'new' style of the game - Timo Boll and Chuang Chih-Yuan are still mixing it at the very top in their 40s....

    A friend who played at a very high level 30 years ago had a great way of training his impact zone. Similar to the idea suggested by IB66, but what he did, on a spare bat, was he cut the rubbers (both...

    I see there's a new Stiga Mantra Pro series listed on the ITTF website, as well as a Stiga Truls Moregard rubber. We'll have to wait and see where these new ones are made, but weren't the old Mantra...

    I've only played with the commercial version of H3 Neo, so my observations may not apply to other versions (ie. Provincial, National, boosted non-Neo, etc.). So, with that limitation in mind, my...

    Thanks Tipiak! It sounds like you're saying that the SK7 is more powerful than the SFP Blue - is that right?

    Thanks Guys. I'd initially ruled out the Clipper for the same reason as the Samsonov Force Pro Black, i.e. that it's too fast. Am I wrong about that?
  13. Advice please: 7-ply all-wood blade for my son

    Hi All,

    I'm planning to get a 7-ply all-wood blade as a gift for my son and would be grateful for some advice please.

    He currently plays with a Xiom Offensive S and is looking for a step up...

    If all you mean is that you need a bit more skill to produce good spin with a carbon blade, then I agree.

    But what many folks seem to mean is that top-level players cannot be competitive with...
  15. Sounds to me like a good call. The fact is that...

    Sounds to me like a good call. The fact is that you'll probably have better feel with an allwood blade than with a carbon, and the extra confidence you gain from the better feel means that, in time,...

    Great to see Aruna looking so strong at the business-end of the competition! His next match against Jonghoon should be very entertaining - they're both such powerful hitters. Jonghoon probably has...

    I think it would be one of the "Pro" versions. Probably Vega Pro or Omega V Pro.
    Vega X, although similar on paper, is quite a bit bouncier than G-1. And the Omega Asia rubbers are harder than G-1...

    Several well established alternatives come to mind:

    Yasaka Rakza 7
    Xiom Vega Pro
    Xiom Vega X
    Victus Ventus Extra
    Stiga DNA Pro M
    Stiga Mantra M
    DHS Goldarc 8
    Donic Baracuda

    Just out of curiosity: Have you tried the Sieger PK-50? Quite a lot of online reviewers say it's very similar to D09C. I haven't tried it myself so can't comment from experience, but I'd be...

    You're right, I don't think a budget was mentioned. What I meant was more that, for budget reasons (probably) fewer people have tried the Acoustic and, therefore, there are fewer people able to...

    I agree with Carl that if you're after a blade with good 'feel' then an all-wood blade is more likely to tick the right boxes for you.

    Having said that, if you want a composite blade at less than...

    You're not alone in disapproving of Truls' behaviour, but that's not the issue. The issue is twofold:

    (1) What behaviour crosses the line of acceptability in a professional context?
    (2) If...

    I'm not so sure - that seems a bit overboard to me.

    I agree that there should be some consequence, but the consequence should be proportionate to the wrongdoing and a season ban seems too much....
