      What does Xiom have to offer that's comparable to D05, now that we know O7P is still behind T05?
      How do we know that?
      I think that its better in some things.

      There you have it. This thread has outlived its usefulness. The reason it's still on the front page is thanks to the D05 hype. Just saying.

      Goodness gracious
      Why hijacking? My post is comparison answer to a statement and its all about Xiom.
      My initial remark to stay on the thread background was provoked by post #109.

      What about the seamless balls? I comment balls in the balls' threads, don't I? And yes - for me they are the best, as well as for many others and its well visible in that threads.
      Oh well, no need for explanations, for those that are capable of reading.

      But looking into a mirror from time to time can be pretty helpful.

      And yeah, if you ask me, you can put your Adham-Sharara-memorial-balls where the sun never shines. They're just as wacky as the G40+ but that's just my personal opinion.
      Heck, there was a time when i even liked the G40+ more, but that's a different story.

      Anyhow, got carried away a bit, so back to topic.

      Congrats to Hugo for the new contract. Hope it's gonna be everything he expected from it.
      And also hope seeing him around for promotional reasons since his new sponsor is located in my area.

      I always keep my balls away from direct sunshine, but not exactly the way you ask me, thank you.
      About the mirror - it would be better for you to share your rudeness with it.

      Funnily though found some descriptions on golf equipment that compares pretty well to EJaism in TT:

      "No athletes rely on their equipment quite like golfers. Picking which sneakers to wear or what bat to swing are relatively simple choices compared with selecting 14 clubs. Variables like grip material, shaft strength, and club length further complicate the process, and that’s without even considering which ball to use."

      Later in http://grantland.com/features/a-myst...olf-club-dr-v/ there's also this:

      "Anyone who plays sports understands this phenomenon. We want to use the same clubs, shoes, balls, bats, and everything else as the pros because they’re the best, and we want to give ourselves every chance to play as well as them. It’s as much about confidence as it is quality equipment.

      This isn’t just common sense — social scientists have actually studied how using “professional” gear affects amateurs’ performance. In 2011, researchers at the University of Virginia laid out a putting mat, a ball, and a putter, and invited 41 undergraduates to take part in an experiment. The students were asked to do two things: Take 10 test putts and then try to draw the hole to scale. Half were told nothing about the putter’s origins. The rest were told it once belonged to a PGA Tour player. You already know what happened next. The students who thought they were using a pro’s club sank more putts and drew the hole larger than the control group. The social scientists running the experiment must have known that what they were witnessing was pure superstition. How else to describe the process by which years of practice and skill can be transmitted from an expert to an amateur through the simple transfer of an object? But because they’re academics, they use a different term — positive contagion. It’s like the placebo effect for sports."

      Dude..... I must admit, this one was pretty good.

      Some call it rudeness others call it mirror, while other others probably would find it insulting to be silenced by someone who's pretty good at derailing himself.


      Just pulling your leg, man. If you think it's not contradictive to call out others for derailing while participating at the same time, then ok.
      You obviously see it differently.

      But if you don't mind i'll get back to the topic now, because I really wonder if Calderano will play with the AZXi or if he will stick to all wood.
      My feeling tells me during the season he might stay with aĺlwood, but time will tell.

      XIOM as one of the strongest professional table tennis brand, Hugo signed a professional contract with XIOM.

      As for the equipment, he is already using our rubber.
      As for the blade we are still working on it.

      We are very pleased to have him joined our TEAM XIOM.
      is hugo using xiom equipment or his former cornelleu equipment?

      In the picture from today's match at Hungarian Open, you can clearly see that Hugo uses XIOM Omega VII rubber.

      At least in the singles he was still playing with his Cornilleau Gatien Absolum plus Foco Off+ handles and with Xiom rubbers

      I did some nice screenshots myself, but I'm too stupid to upload it...

      Am I the only one who thinks Hugo is not fully familiar with the new rubbers? In todays match against Wang Ch. it seems to me he made a lot of unforced errors with push or block.
