    Covid-19 and Lockdown gave a chance to test and try more stuff, forced my hand into buying a table and robot. (Sold fishing tackle to finance this)
    As a result I’ve been able to try rubbers with different blades and continue playing during the lockdowns, very lucky!!

    so looking forward to seeing your lists!!!

    I found my “n is alpha and omega” blade a couple of years ago and haven’t felt tempted towards another since.

    Sometimes a rubber piques some interest and if it crosses my path then I sometimes play with it for a while.

    I find that I have equal fun playing with these, and can mention a few.

    - Gewo Nanoflex FT48
    - DHS Gold Arc 8/50°
    - Butterfly Rozena, Tenergy 05
    - Nittaku FastArc G-1
    - Xiom Vega Pro and X
    - Andro Rasanter R48 and R53

    My BH is a bit pickier, maybe. FAG1 has become a staple. On FH, I’ll probably go with same, or maybe R53.

    It doesn’t matter much. I’ve found all of them reliable.

    Well, Yogi you’re listed as an ‘equipment expert’ so everyone would expect a long list!!
    it took me a while, at least an hour to try and remember what I have used as well, lazy Sunday morning with nothing better to do!!!

    Blades:

    Currently used setups: YEO and Friendship Z-1 with Hurricane 3 and FastArc C-1

    And of course something new is already on the way: Hurricane 3 37 for my BH and a Yinhe V-14 Pro. Maybe we are out of lockdown again when that stuff arrives...
    and some more stuff in the pipeline if I don't like the H3 37 on my BH (Victas VJ>07 Stiff then Mizuno Q4, Q5).

    The H3 37, std, Provincial or National?
    I’ve tried the provincial version boosted and un-boosted, boosted is nicer, but try without 1st and if you don’t like it boost with a couple of layers of Seamoon. Plays ‘softer’ !!

    Lol, to be honest, if i have not given away most of the blades i owned since 2011 when i started reviewing, it could fill up the entire wall of a medium sized bedroom. I stopped counting at 150 blades.

    Both commercial/domestic and provincial H3 37. The last time I played an unboosted H3 was when I bought my first one (commercial from a local store)... Not a good idea especially not on an All+ blade.
