  1. Xiom Vega Pro H Care

    From my experience: Water only, non-sticky protector sheet.
  2. Friendship 729 battle 3

    Do you guys think the B3 needs boosting? And if not, what is a good hardness to play without boosting?
  3. How to clean / restore used blade

    Hi, I recently bought a used blade which I like to play with. In principle it is in fine playing shape: No huge dents, varnished. Alas, it looks pretty used overall, especially around the handle and the wings. And I am not a fan of gripping around some other dudes old sweat... 😅 Any tips on...
  4. Sanwei target national new version

    I have put much more research into this matter than I am willing to admit here 🙈 :ROFLMAO: Yes, the new version has a different number. The STN is produced mainly for the international market and not China. Additionally, Sanwei does not have a single official retailer on AliExpress. Their...
  5. SOLD: DHS Fang Bo B (7-Ply) / Sanwei Target National / Xiom Vega Korea

    The whole setup has been played for less than 5 hours. Good condition, well kept. Bought it as a secondary setup but have hardly have enough time to make good of use my primary setup, lol. Blade: https://www.tabletennis11.com/other_eng/dhs-fang-bo-all-wood Weight: 86g Sanwei Target National...
  6. Butterfly x Minions!

    Would be great to know, which blades they actually used as a basis. If the 5 ply wood is, e.g., a korbel with different optics, I might actually buy one. If it it's just some rando "trust us, it' gud" blade, then not...
  7. Is Sanwei Target National a good forehand rubber?

    He is not sponsored or short sighted, it's just his opinion about equipment. He is a very good player (USATT 2300+) and certified coach. A much better player than my middle aged self will probably ever become. I asked him his opinion and chose to follow it, which I personally think is a...
  8. Is Sanwei Target National a good forehand rubber?

    It is mentioned a lot on this forum as one of the best H3 (boosted) alternatives that don't need boosting. I can't make this comparison, as I have never played with a boosted H3. I bought a Sanwei Target National recently (from @mocker88 btw, great shop) and liked it. Flat and fast ball with a...
  9. Is it worth it to learn how to replace rubber yourself?

    I was at the same point as you. Decided that all the sending back and forth stuff and paying shops to glue your rubber, wait 1 weeks to get it back and so forth was not worth the hassle. Bought glue and some edge type myself, watched some tutorials online. Didn't get it perfect on first try but...
  10. Should I sell things to TTD that are niche to get

    @Tony's Table Tennis Could you give some examples of what you have in mind? From the top of my head I can't think of anything rare I would want / need directly out of Taiwan. But for me (and other readers) that might change when we read what could be available :)
  11. Buying equipment in the UK

    Personally I have bought at https://www.prott.vip/ and the BEO Store on AliExpress https://de.aliexpress.com/store/4499032 The goods I bought (rubbers and Yinhe Blades) were legitimate. Shipping to Germany was about 15 days and I had to pay import tax upon delivery for ProTT. That last part...
  12. Complete video guide: How to cut and glue rubbers on a table tennis bat

    Haha yeah, I recently cut a Xiom Vega Korea with a box cutter and the result was HORRIBLE. Oil might have helped... The effect is only cosmetic, though. Looks ugly, doesn't affect the playing properties. And I alway use 12mm edge tape 😅 Do let me know when you have tried out the scissors...
  13. Complete video guide: How to cut and glue rubbers on a table tennis bat

    Nice Video! Good trick about the drop of oil on the cutter. I would say my glue jobs are pretty decent, but my cuts look like crap... 🙈 Despite clicking off the blade tip for each new rubber. Maybe the oil helps. Have you ever tried scissors for cutting, what are your experiences? I always...
  14. looking for non-bouncy grippy cheap rubbers

    I think the rubbers mainly differ in sponge hardness, so it depends a bit on the level of the player. The Speed / Spin / Control Values on https://ttdd.eu/belage/noppen-innen/ktl.html give a pretty good indication. Personally I play with KTL Rapid Speed 2.0 on BH, as it hits that sweet spot...
  15. looking for non-bouncy grippy cheap rubbers

    The whole KTL lineup fits that description very well. It is a sub-brand of Friendship "designed for the European game". They left out the whole catapult part, though ;). The ones I have tried from the "Rapid"-Series were non-tacky, pretty grippy and had almost no catapult to them. Very good cost...
  16. Soft rubber for backhand - Advice for attacking player

    Budget Option: KTL Rapid Speed 42 Deg Hardness, good control, low catapult. The reviews here give a good picture: https://www.tabletennis11.com/other_eng/friendship-lkt-rapid-speed
