    Hi I am Lazer

    I used to play in the mid 70's in Spårvägen Stockholm Sweden.
    I quit playing I think in 75. I have played sporadically upto today.

    About a year ago the company where I work bought a table and
    I started to play again. I noticed I still had it.

    Back in '97 I left an employment in L.A Calilfornia and went back
    to Sweden. My TT buddies scrambled a litte bit of money and got me
    a Primorac carbon Blade as a go away gift. It's been sitting idle until
    a year ago. Let me tell You to get rubber for it was a jungle. Back
    in those days it was alll about Mark V and (Super) Sriver. Anything
    else was hard to get a hold of.

    I am still looking, but I am now using Raksa 7 Soft 2mm, thats the
    best I have found so far. Regular Rakza is a tad too fast on this Blade
    and I loose too much control. I'm not done looking yet well see where it leads

    Cheers
    L-zr

    They say primorac carbon is one of the fastest blades put there so yeah... Stay with the soft rubber or will be very fast

    I know, but this one was naked and not in use for 20+ years. Something must happen to the wood, I would say it’s getting dryer. I don’t know what that does to the speed.

    I can tell you it doesn’t feel super fast. I played with a Yasaka silver 9 with 2mm Rakza X once. That one felt faster then my primorac with Rakza 7 (standard). It could have been the rubber but the combo was way too fast for me.

    I think when the wood get dryer it get harder and stiffer, in other words faster, as the water in it has been all gone away

    That’s was my first thought as well, but it does not feel super fast, I played a Yasaka silver 9 with Rakza X and that combo felt definitely faster. This blade is built during the 38mm celluloid era maybe bats was built slower back then.

    Youre in Taiwan right?
    I left a job I had in LA California in ’97. Back then I had a lot Taiwanese expatriate friends I played with. Almost all of them played pen style. How is it now? Is that style going more and more extinct?
