  1. Upgrading beginner setup advice

    I am using Acoustic for 2 mths now and love it and have also gone to Rakza 7 on BH - I have Rakza X soft on my other racket and can't really decide between them. Both are fantastic rubbers for control as I'm trying to relearn (unlearn bad habits) with backhand technique. There are a plethora of...
  2. Side tape REALLY change the feeling or not? What do you think?

    I will upload video one day, probably when season starts again. I have no idea what my lvl is within different ranking systems so it will eventually be fun to find out. But I also hate seeing myself in videos or photos, even my wedding video! I just can't handle being in the middle of it so to...
  3. Side tape REALLY change the feeling or not? What do you think?

    I'm sorry, I don't understand 🤷
  4. Side tape REALLY change the feeling or not? What do you think?

    Relax with or without Edgetape????
  5. Side tape REALLY change the feeling or not? What do you think?

    Yeah, it was just a friendly back and forth banter, one believing one thing and one another. I don't think you'll find anything overly pushy, arrogant, untoward or otherwise is any of my posts but then it comes to, I just don't understand much about the game from the one going off on mental...
  6. Side tape REALLY change the feeling or not? What do you think?

    Of course you are, your God complex is just salivating at the essay you could write. But again, you're miles away from the actual topic here, par for the course me thinks
  7. Side tape REALLY change the feeling or not? What do you think?

    Aw, was that everyday word reserved for purveyors of bunkum too strong for you. You are indeed a sensitive creature 🤣
  8. Spinny rubber with low-throw angle on FH

    Ah yes, I hadn't understood that you had played the C2 also, I may have missed that bit! I was curious because I go to try the Hammond Z2 for about an hour last month. I really liked it btw, great BH rubber for me. I thought the throw was highish but am not comparing with C2 as I haven't tried...
  9. Side tape REALLY change the feeling or not? What do you think?

    Upsidedown indeed Carl. Turning things upside down trying to convince us all with essays extrapolated from the notion that 1g matters, makes a difference or can be noticed and makes you a guru and the rest of us (or just me) don't understand. Despite what you want to believe I haven't said that...
  10. Side tape REALLY change the feeling or not? What do you think?

    You're talking about less than a gram of edge tape as if someone is strapping rocks to your blade. I have to say it all sounds like bs to me. Anyone could take off more than the weight of 2 edge tapes if they tidied their rubbers up with a scalpel right now and I'm certain nobody would notice...
  11. Spinny rubber with low-throw angle on FH

    Have you used the Hammond Z2? I found it softish (relatively for FH at least) and also found a high throw angle. I'm surprised you would consider it low throw. What are you comparing it with in this regard?
  12. Mizuno wave drive 8 vs Butterfly Lezoline Rifones

    That's a pity, perhaps the shape of the butterfly just suits your feet better. I tried many brands before setting on the Mizuno. I find the ventilation in them to be good, although there are shoes that pass more air. Anyway, at least now you know you'll probably appreciate your BFs even more!
  13. Shrink free transfer of rubbers ?

    This is gonna be hard to explain in words but what I do is align the rubber on the blade and with a thin marker, draw lines on rubber AND blade edge at 7, 8 and 4, 5 o clock. Maybe 6 & 9 also. Then, once glue is applied, with the rubber slightly curled back in your hand (ie: sponge stretched...
  14. Spinny rubber with low-throw angle on FH

    The durability of the Rakzas is very good so I don't expect 9 will be any different. I have played R7, RX, RXs and RZ (and played a few of them to their threads) and all have been good for a yr of 2 hrs 3 times a week... Incidentally I put an old R7, X and Z on blades to experiment during the...
  15. Upgrading beginner setup advice

    09c on BH is (imo) for very advanced BH players and in most cases it's a better FH rubber. Doesn't the H8 have poor durability too tho? Are you recommending the H8 as a BH or FH option?
  16. Side tape REALLY change the feeling or not? What do you think?

    You can get edge tape in 12 and 15mm, are they really not wide enough?
  17. Spinny rubber with low-throw angle on FH

    Maybe list what you already tried? Rakza 9 springs to mind as a quick, low throw rubber, might be worth a shot
  18. Spinny rubber with low-throw angle on FH

    Have you tried Nittaku Fastarc G1? Lowish throw in my experience but may be higher than your Donic since I've never tried it...
  19. Worst Pro serve?

    He won every point in that video! yeah, worst serve ever! 😂 Seriously tho, just analysing it point by point gives the answer, I'm not gonna do it cos it's too much to write but actually analysing those points is a good lesson me thinks
