    Hi Gozo,

    let me know how the Acoustic performs with the H2N and H3, I took the un-boosted H3/Skyline 3 off of the Viscaria, currently boosting them, after which they are going on my Acoustic (all wood) 😃

    Sure friend. Will get back to you after more play time. Next week ok? As usual, I boost my chinese tacky rubber. I am such a CHEAT!

    Hello table tennis lovers,
    I try to make a good list - I was completely new to table tennis in October, 2019 - since that time, I used these equipment as I tried to develop:

    Pre-made rackets:
    Many differently priced rackets from the Decathlon Pongori lineup (value per price-wise pretty good) for more than half a year

    Blades (I will not list rubbers for now, only with the blades I installed them on):
    Tibhar Balsa Allround 50 (it was too stiff, but have interesting dynamics - had Victas VJ > 07 Stiff and VJ > 07 Limber on it)
    Andro Timber 7 OFF (found out, this is almost exactly like TSP SWAT, worked pretty good, but later I replaced Victas VJ > 07 Regular on them to Nittaku Fastarc C-1)
    Dr. Neubauer World Champion (I made the mistake of purchasing a blade with balsa handle - and with ST handle - worst combination ever, otherwise, the blade had good feeling - to make even more bad decisions, I tried pimple out rubbers on both sides)
    TSP Euro Feeling Off- (at that time, I was unable to control it properly due to the rather hard top ply and stiffer than average second ply - now, it would be not problematic - I will reconfigure it, just didn't figure out, what rubbers to choose for it)
    TSP SWAT (very good blade, I liked to use for an extended period of time - both sides Victas VJ > 07 Stiff, I was brush-looping and pushing nearly all the time with it -, now it is too slow for me)
    Neottec Amagi Off- (rather fast, but with very soft feeling - I have Xiom Vega Asia DF on it, just I will probably replace it)
    PimplePark Pila (first 'novelty class' blade for me, I installed Victas VJC > 07 Sticky Extra on both sides - on long term, it is very exhausting to play aggressively with it, but it has very respectable spin capability, and I can mix in a good set of defensive moves as well with extra safety)
    Nittaku S-5 (I asked for a lighter than average piece and fitted it with Nittaku Fastarc C-1 - works pretty well, I give this to my practice partners, if they play after a bit longer break)
    Dr. Neubauer Magical Touch (again, a pretty interesting blade, if I consider the wood ply structure, but the handle kills it again - it is some sort of cedar, but rather slippery - this blade had Andro Hexer Powergrip installed on it, pretty fast and fun to play, just not the most accurate)
    Xiom Offensive S (the first blade I really liked - handle and weight balance with heavier rubbers are nice - this blade had Nittaku Sieger PK50 on it - sometimes physically demanding, but spinny and powerful setup)
    DHS Power G9 (fast, stiff, but with softer feeling - I used it with DHS H3 Neo commercial 39 degrees max - one of my coworkers fell in love with it, so I sold it to him - maybe it was too demanding to use it on long term for me, so I had let it go, but I will try a similar configuration soon with provincial version (hardness, thickness will be the same))
    Xiom Solo (significantly faster than TSP SWAT, still it has some flexibility, which I like - I use it with Nittaku Fastarc G-1 on both sides - this is my primary configuration now, which I like, and I feel I can really make a development with it)

    Hi IB66,

    I completely forgotten about this post. OK, to answer you, my last session with Acoustic was disastrous. It didn't play so well. I have not use her for a few weeks already. To give a biased answer, I feel that tension rubber such as Donic Bluefire M1 is more suited. But it is not conclusive, I repeat, it is not conclusive as I have not played with it a lot lately.

    I played mostly with my trusty old Stiga All round mainly. This is my most successful set-up.

    The Acoustic is a great blade, but like yourself I felt that tension rubbers maybe better suited to it, hybrids play well also.
    Could be that my technique is more of an issue, but it didn't feel as nice as a Primorac all wood. Personal judgements as always!!!
    I'll have to up date as well with the SDC blades I'm now using, plus H8-80!!!!!
