  3. 1980s Stiga Allround blade - worth reusing ?

    This could be an interesting blade for some collectors e.g. I would keep that blade and get a new Stiga Allround Evolution. Upgrade from Mark V could be either the Rakza 7 or the more controlled Rigan and Rigan Spin.
  4. Post your latest EJ purchase

    DHS PG3 and one of the red H8-80 37 (44g cut, the lightest one so far but also the one with the most brittle sponge). The H3 is from a different order ;)

  6. Backhand rubbers? Is d09c too much for a beginner-intermediate player?

    Yep, 6 to 8 weeks was what I usually got out of ESN rubbers. But some rubbers needed a bit boosting in between... If we can wait for around a month than we might get a slightly softer and a lot cheaper option: Glayzer 09C (44.90€ in Germany vs 79.90€ for a Dignics 09C).
  7. Backhand rubbers? Is d09c too much for a beginner-intermediate player?

    1. D09C will be better for serving and short game than these bouncy ESN rubbers but 2. D09C might be rated slower than T05FX by Butterfly but has a much higher ceiling 3. can you engage the hard sponge (D09C = roughly 54° ESN) of the D09C enough to use its potential? There is a reason Ma Long or...
  8. Should I switch from S Classic Offensive to S Rosewood V?

    Be careful with the blade's weight. If you are now using a light OC say with 80g and get a not so rare RW5 weighing over 90g the difference will be quite large. TTGearLab did some nice tests on many Stiga blades: Speed: OC...

  11. Battle 3 now available on Aliexpress

    How is the throw angle compared to boosted H3? B2 provincial had a noticeably lower throw. Just one month and someone could do the ultimate comparison test: D09C vs G09C vs H3 vs H2 vs B3 vs B2. Btw: I couldn't resist and boosted my 729 Dragon-Fs with two layers of Seamoon. Still harder than...
  12. Training with my OLD Stiga Carbonado

    Nope. YT "cheat": Pause video and then single step through the frames with , and . ;) Doesn't look like a V14 Pro handle or a Legacy Carbon (all black handle). Must be a blade with something shiny, golden on the handle like the ZJK ALC.

  18. 999 Super999T

    They are still on the LARC Globe 999 Globe 999T
  19. 729/Friendship Dragon F and Dragon L

    I try to get my impressions on the Dragon-F right (we are currently in the second half of the season so I do not test or switch rubbers if I don't have to): Hardness is the easiest to answer: definitely harder than H8-80 37 and softer than H3 39. So 38° but maybe closer to 39° as far as my...
  20. Hurricane H3 with curly tail

    That should work if it contains the good old, non-health-preserving, substances as it did 30 years ago ;)
