    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...

    Indeed, sponge hardness is just that.

    @brokenball, you do provoke by using derisive language. Easy to escalate from there. Like you I would consider it useful to ground these discussions in...

    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.

  12. 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.

    The Offensive S is definitely a step upwards in terms of speed/power from the Allplay. Whether or not that suits you, at your level and in the phase of development you're in, I don't know. It seems...

    Probably, yes. The good news is that you can sand it down, leaving a very smooth but still saturated surface that won’t be prone to splintering.

    One step back will always be slower than off the bounce.
