    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...

    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...

    100% agree. It's disrespectful - which is worse than a momentary loss of temper.

    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....

    Have a look at the Tibhar Lebesson. It must be one of the most - if not the most - underrated blades around.

    If you're looking for something "a bit faster" then it might be a good solution for...

    Well, we don't know all the theories and pros and cons - that's why we ask each other questions on this forum! 🙂

    I agree with you that the throw is a key BH consideration. With that in mind, how...

  16. SOFTER rubber vs. THINNER rubber for BH?

    What would be the pros and cons of a softer vs. thinner rubber on the BH?

    For example, would you rather choose a 42-degree rubber in MAX thickness (eg. Rasanter R42 MAX), or go with the 45-degree...

    Very nice! Is the handle also hollowed out like the No.1 Senso? If so, could you post a pic or two please? It would be nice to see that.

    How do the V Euro and VII Euro compare to each other? I know the V is 45-degrees and the VII is 42.5-degrees, but in terms of playing characteristics how would you compare them?

    I'd say the Rhyzer Pro 45 feels fairly firm for a 45-degree rubber, and it's not bouncy (at least, not in my opinion) so it's pretty good in the short/touch game. That said, it's definitely an...
