      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.

      I’ve also seen chunks of the entire top ply coming loose, but I...

      Because I don’t think price is relevant for “best”, and I also don’t think
      “widely used” or “popular” has anything to do with it.

      That said, “best” is positively screaming for derailment, as has...

      Nostalgic is quite a beast, imho. An updated Clipper, quite demanding/unforgiving - but powerful. It may not be what @OP seeks.

      I don't care about great numbers ("market share"), nor does price point play a part — in these considerations. But thanks for the relativisation (and kudos for mosying towards "bifurcation" along...

      Thnx NL. Informative.

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

      The flaw in considering ‘brands’ as having...

      That is the question.



      What I pointed out, in "level relative" remarks, that this answers a different question, i.e. "what's the best TT equipment for absolute top players?".

      And I would...

      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,...

      Well, yes, and Grubba is also not with us anymore. Which is actually a reason why, when being offered an unlimited offer to state a wish, I'd go for either of these two.

      I very much would like to play Andrzej Grubba or Dragutin Šurbek, who I both much admired as a kid. I found Grubba's game so balanced, versatile, and beautiful to watch; and as for Šurbek, I wonder...

      Best Brand Over-all?

      Brand is an abstract, perhaps even meaningless, marketing concept. A container to hook warm and fuzzy feelings to, to create an impression of value and distinctiveness wholly unrelated to actual...

      All Japan Championship 2020 Jan 13-19

      Hat off to Uda.

      Even so, this is just a snapshot in time, and important decisions require more caution, should not be taken whimsically in the spur of the moment.

      I'm not consciously focusing on impact zone, but I do notice a distinctive coin-sized wear pattern on both BH and FH, pretty much exactly midcenter of the blade.

      Poll: Top 10 Best Table Tennis Shots of 2019

      Ball clips left netpost, bounces up, comes down upon right netpost and ricochets onto the other table half.

      It’s unusual but not unseen, and as has been pointed out no skill was involved.

      Ever more deeply smitten with my custom blade.

      FA-G1 did click for me on the BH to the extent that I’m entirely uncurious and have a stack of spares at hand.
