    I had a few sessions with D05 and D80, and have played T05 extensively.

    I felt I could do with D80, but not with D05. All other things being equal, such as the price, I think I would pick D80...

    It's a decent rubber for starters that want to develop their game; an early rubber created to compensate for the loss of liveliness when rubber cement glue was banned. There are many rubbers in that...

    The site is active, with (very) recent updates on it regarding order fullfilment. You're saying "a couple of hours ago", which to me suggest late evening/early night in local time — and Cole probably...

    Watching the live stream I see recent results, with a 3-2 win over Wang Chuqin by Kristian Karlsson.

    Formidable upset, if true. What happened?

    I’m casually following the live stream in the WTT app. That’s a bit annoying, because they embraced the silent film area apparently - an not hearing the game makes you miss an awful lot of what’s...

    Strategy, tactics and execution.

    Strategy comes first. What’s your goal? There’s much more to it than focus on winning. Winning might be the goal. Having fun playing another. Revalidating yet...

    Alexis must have gone into the final with tremendous confidence after that extremely high level win in the semi; that Lebrun brothers slugout was a treat to watch.

    I've bought a stack of G1, back when I hadn't experienced how durable it is, anticipating a much higher replacement pace. And from that stack, I've used a few slabs on backup blades, and also when I...

    I've restored an old blade recently - 30+ years. The rubbers had vulcanized entirely, becoming hard and brittle. And of course they were glued on with rubber cement, that also hardened out over the...

    Every now and then things get all Yogi Berra, as in deja vu all over again - or that’s just hoe it feels.

    Having glaring bugs go unaddressed for so long is also a poke in the eye, that after a...

    Yeah. Keep opening them. You have more time than you think, especially on long underspin balls. Stay loose, in neutral position, get into stroke position and start your backswing upon the second...

    I've played with it when returning to TT after my 30 year hiatus, hoping to find a semblance to the 729 rubber I used in the 80s - eggplant-coloured, very tacky, supple, well-tempered but not too...

    Vega series are fine - in fact, Euro and Pro would suit most players I know just fine. But hey, that blade, it's a powerhouse. And in my humble experience, that matters. A lot.

    That was actually in reply to a post stating those that seek arc are wimps in need of manning up, whose asses get kicked even by girls. Could’t resist, sorry.

  21. Looking for high arc rubber

    Well, brokenball… I think people like the high arc in want of a safety margin, and because they (correctly) feel it indicates a high spin:speed ratio (stronger Magnus effect). Which I guess equates...

    I'm not familiar to the Omega Asia variants in the various Omega series, but to I've felt Vega Pro to have quite a bit in common with Fa-G1 in the way it bites, chews on and spits out the ball.
