    Rozena’s pretty durable, as long as you manage to keep it intact. It won’t play like new, but won’t become anti in a mere few yearrs.

    It is brittle, easily damaged, though. Many rubbers with soft...

    T05 is a feisty beast to tame. I found it too hot to handle in the short game, though I had much fun with it fir the rest.

    The TB ALC is a fine blade, even though fast, and, as you note, balanced...

    Afaik the Donic OTC is not an inner carbon blade; iirc it’s an outer ALC blade of the Vis family.

    Google’f effup is not necessarily Dan’s. That said, I do think the TTD forum software makeover followup has been wanting.

  8. www.youtube.com/c/TableTennisDaily...

    www.youtube.com/c/TableTennisDaily is a 404 still, so "end of the day" does seem optimistic. My guess is that the lettuce just might outlast TTD's utube hiatus as well! Did I miss out on that being...

    John Hilton used anti on one side, inverted on the other. He twiddled heavily, and often stamped his feet when hitting the ball, masking the sound of the hit. I've seen him play in the early 80s,...

    We've used XSF, and also experienced their relative fragility. Looking for alternatives, we first tried a few batches (a dozen boxes or so) of the DHS D40+ ball (the one with Ding Ning on the box). ...

    Here's where ye olde fartes like me would mention Dragutin Šurbek and Jean-Philippe Gatien. In modern players, I rather like Kristian Karlssons's strokes.

    You assess an incoming ball, pick your choice in how you’re going to act, move into position, execute your chosen stroke — and reset, i.e. return to neutral position.

    It’s an excellent blade for those that can handle it, which is the empty set.

    I’ve known somebody that played it. With MX-P, to add insult to injury. He developed a very cautious game of...

    I like the Clipper and I cannot lie, but I have no first-hand experience with OP"s selection. I also like the Samsonov Force Pro.

    Other 7-ply blades that I've liked are the Andro Gauzy SL OFF...

    And to be a little less uninformative, YES you can, or may be able to, see the ball spinning, but the fact that it spins does not help much. What you need to know is how much it spins, and in what...

    Reading spin is one of the harder parts. People can, though, but I don't think it's done by tracking the motions of the ball print. I think it's done by reading the speed and flight curve of the...

    Maybe that's just me, but once upon a time I found Brett Clarke's "forehand topspin like a boss" snippets very instructive — focused on the full body mechanics involved. A bear is used, as are golf...

    The Sweden Extra is a very fine blade indeed. Over here, it’s not insanely expensive - a decent combo (eg with Vega Intro, Vega Euro, Vega Pro) can be constructed well under €100.
