      It doesn't sound that interesting to me to boost (with baby oil) at the moment, but it's always interesting to know how things work.



      Interesting thread, thanks for sharing.
      Anytime, buddy

      I'm curious: how does olive oil work for this? Or any other cooking oil?

      Not really sure how much this has to do with saturation of fats and oils but according to 'Bebsch' olive oil lies pretty much in the middle of the table of saturated fats and oils, so not really recommandable but still usable to a degree. Better would be sunflower oil, or as i wrote above lavender oil or tea tree oil.

      I actually think the oils that work are ones that evaporate and are related to the kinds of oils that are more flammable.

      If you took water, a sponge, whether a dish sponge or a TT sponge will absorb the water and that would cause the sponge to expand.

      But that would not give you a boost effect. This is why some oils make the rubber feel mushy. This is also why you don't want to use too much mineral oil (baby oil). Why it can make the sponge feel mushy.

      The oils that give the best boost effect evaporate fairly quickly like Paraffin or even more toxic oils.

      That they evaporate quickly makes it so the pores in the sponge have more gas in them so the sponge is more springy. But this is also why the boost effect does not last that long. The oil evaporates.

      Oils that don't evaporate will saturate the sponge pores. This gives an odd effect that isn't quite ideal for boosting.

      Well the saturation of fats and the saturation of sponges are two different pair of shoes, but I think you've made an very interesting point. In fact i think it's mostly the gases inside the oils that are causing the boost effect. If you look at speed glue it was mostly the evaporating gases that caused that effect too.
      This could also be a reason why ethereal oils seem to work so well.

      I'm far from being a chemist (rather a herb specialist) but this really makes sense to me.

      Thanks, Carl. Good one!

      Yep. And I have to confess, that info originally came from Pnachtwey.

The face of the blade is a bit thin and flexy, so the blade favors loops over drives further away from the table (this doesnot mean you can't drive with this blade, it just feels unnatural to me). The carbokev layer does ensures that the blade doesn't bottom out from further way, but from what i remember the yinhe v16 feels more balanced and better suited for backhand. The ball feel is somewhat muted, so i feel like this blade is better suited for people with good touch and technique (this is an offensive blade after all). I keep this blade for when i want to mess around, but I'm too inconsistent with this for where i am now. I'm currently playing with the w-6 and I have the yinhe e3vb in the mail arriving shortly. I prefer allround+/offensive- blades, and the e3vb falls in that catagory (plus the fiberglass layer offers excellent feedback).


      Hope this helps (sorry if im replying a little late).
