      Timo Boll talks about his equipment

      I'm surprised to not see any thread about this as it's an EJ's wet dream

      On Timo's webcoaching blog he released a video talking about his preparation for the World Team Championships:



      In this video he talks and even shows his Tenergy rubbers, that he will glue on 4 blades, which he brought with him:

      Here he shows a Tengergy for his forehand weighing 99,6g and talks about his backhand rubber weighing around 93g or 94g.

      Interestingly he talks about how he's going to be testing his 4 rackets in the match hall and then deciding with which racket he will play the tournament and that in bigger halls he prefers softer rubbers as he prefers getting a little bit of "help"/catapult effect from the rubber and that he plays harder rubbers (he brought up to 104g for his forehand) in smaller halls.

      Exactly

      I rushed on clicking the link, but it's German and subtitles are German too.. maybe next time subtitles will be in English, cause I like such videos

      Thanks

      You can use the auto translate feature of Youtube, it's pretty accurate, but I tried to write down everything what he says about his equipment in the first post.

      His english is very good, why would he not do these type of videos in english? Would give him a much bigger audience (or both english and german).

      Anyway would a heavier tenergy 05 automatically be harder?
      Also is 95-100gram for tenergy 05 normal? I don't play with it but that sounds very heavy, I thought most rubbers were around 65-70grams or so.

      1. Usually yes
      2. 95 - 100 gr. in this case means incl. the package.

      I saw that white packaged tenergy once in Japan, I know that "national rubber" is not a popular term...but seriously I think that is exactly what it is. It came in the same mail as a ton of "normal" tenergies (no, it is not mine), but there was only one white packaged.

      New video after their first team match against Egypt:



      At 5:56 he talks about that he will switch his forehand rubber to a rubber which is 1g lighter to get more catapult effect from the softer rubber and more "push" in the open exchanges.

      Amazing stuff, switching his rubber because of such a low weight difference and here I thought I was an EJ

      Yep Ma Long and Fan Zhendong would be totally mediocre without the special equipment they use that nobody else can get.

      Zhou Yu played very well with T05 on his FH, I think it must be a big difference even compared to a custom sponge hardness national H3. It's not they can't play well, it's just they are more comfortable with the 'perfect' equipment.

      I don't see why would he do that. Unfortunately I couldn't find a good resolution image about his racket, but H3 on BH doesn't make any sense, unless it's a softer sponge version designed for the BH (for example Ma Long uses - or used - orange sponge H3 on his BH). Of course, this doesn't proves anything, however Zhang Jike also used T05 on his FH side for a short period.
