    Equipment used in the Euros

    Anyone know, by any chance, what rubbers Vladi is using? Noticed in the match against Ovtcharov that the sponge is a white coloured one - and the rubbers seem rapid, and really quite spinny too. They sound quite crisp as well.

    I also noticed a few pros actually using bluefires, including Joao Geraldo from Portugal. Previously, they never actually trusted the rubbers in a competition as serious as this, and reverted to Tenergy instead.

    Many of the younger players have been true to their sponsor´s materials throughout their careers.

    Also, there is increased pressure not to play other manufacturer´s stuff.

    And lastly, the newest generation of ESN professional rubbers is obviously good enough to give it a try

    Thanks for pointing out the typo Airoc - I meant to say in the match against Ovtcharov :-)

    Hmmm ...

    Officially it´s still Evolution for Samsonov.

    At T2APAC he has been promoting Hybrid K1, which is exclusive for the Asian Market.

    According to a Tibhar source, this was a tacky rubber based on "older" technology, no competition for Evolution generation.

    They now have a K1pro version, still not meant to be sold outside Asia it seems, but if you saw a white sponge probably he has switched.

    But, although this may sound silly, they might just have produced an individual Evolution rubber (he prefers them very hard) and just left the sponge colouring process out.

    By the way he plays with a new blade that will be released to the market in the next few months.

    Why is Timo Boll twiddling his racket to red on his FH when there's high balls? Surely they both red and black are 0,5, no?

    Yes but black one is probably harder than red one.

    Not any. Yet imo it's been just annouced that he's using one for his fh. It would be silly to change to it just before ettc, so I believe he's been playing with it for some time. And even probably he's been using harder version for a long time and butterfly just made it commercial. Just some speculations
