      Der Echte makes a post about remembrance. Nobody cares.

      I posted a week ago asking about basic footwork. Nobody cares.

      That being said, if you are set on saving the 6-7 dollars, they don't look too shabby. Unless they completely screw up the gluing process, it should be in the same ballpark as the original.

      Why bother with a copy cat when you can get the original for just a few dollars more?

      But instead of working on their own designs, most of their effort goes into...

      Carl,

      Unfortunately this one is too far down the rabbit hole to be pulled back. Also, he already has the SK7.

      I never tried these, but if you want a notch down from classic 7 plies, look into the Yasaka Galaxya, Nittaku Adelie, and Donic Persson 7. Same construction, thinner.

      I have used the Donic...

      I would recommend sticking with the 7 ply. Otherwise you risk becoming the Judas of the solid wood gang.

      I can loop fine with even harder stuff, so you should definitely be fine with more...

      You can practice on the bed or sofa (50 times everyday before sleep). Won't do much for predicting placement, but if you can hit the same spot over and over, that's effective enough. Try to make it...

      Step around footwork

      Apologies first if this is covered already, but I'm back in China again and can't access the old youtube videos.

      Hi Amit,

      Nothing wrong with the set-up. Viscaria is tried and true, and I agree with you. Doesn't matter what you buy, you'll adapt to it quickly enough.

      However, I recommend commercial H3. At...

      Toothpicks? This is beneath you. I was expecting nails.

      A shame to discover a hollow handle on one of your favorites. But I suspect most manufacturers are doing it nowadays.

      Hi Patrick, have you had the chance to compare the Sp Ax to Victas 102 and Blowfish?
