      Asking for more reviews

      Hi there TTD admin,

      It has been so long since you guys made a new table tennis equipment review.
      Why don't you start reviewing some new rubber on the market?

      Anyone can make a review in the equipment review section. I say you should make reviews of some of the things you have used and liked. That could start a trend.

      I planned to review my new Fastarc p-1 rubber which I've been using quite a while, but I dont have enough recording kit for the video.

      But, will be considered.

      But in the equipment review section you can write a review. Written reviews are helpful also.

      The video reviews do take a lot of work to produce. But if you can make one that would be awesome as well.

      Oh, the talent of rapid typing just not in me, yet. Still struggling in my final year project. Hence not much time spent on the TTD.

      Stiga Calibra Sound is a pretty loud. Though any modern tensor will give you a satisfying sound if you connect with the right amount of sponge. Perhaps something more control oriented and versatile like Mark V would suit your BH.

      I dont know about Calibra sound, but I have use Calibra LT Spin on my bh, and it really sucks. It just that it did not help me in any spinny shot, despite its name 'spin'. Only good for blocking.

      Since then I dont like any calibra series.

      But lot of reviews talked about how they loved the click sound produced by Calibra sound and maybe you can try it as well.

      Just bear in mind that sometimes combination of rubber with particular blade does make the sound that you are looking for.

      The one that I use currently is Fastarc p-1, specifically designed for a plastic ball. When I used it on my fh, it did not produce much 'umph' compare to Bluefire m-2, hence I changed it to my bh.

      And it shows great potential. It can easily flick the ball and good at touch play. Blocking is good and not much effort need to push the ball.
      I'm not sure about any sound produced, but it is great for my bh.

      Btw, i use 1.9mm.

      Hmm I'm not sure about rubbers that really have a nice cracking sound specifically... I'm using Adidas P7 right now, which, when you hit through deep into the sponge has a really nice 'tock' sound. Great speed and spin too.
