    My old racquet was running out of steam as I have outgrown my old style of playing and not to mention that it has been over a year since I was playing more regularly.
    So here is my new acquisition

    Blade inside the cover

    So that we are clear on the name
    [​IMG]
    ALL + is All round but bit more on offence. XXS is smaller bat, which was something I didn't check, but only handle is slightly smaller


    The Flared grip handle: My style

    [​IMG]

    The second rubber, which I have to order later since these guys ran out of stock
    [​IMG]


    The first rubber, which I got pasted directly from the source. This one is butterfly Sriver G3FX, high spin and offence

    Another shot of Joola Energy Xsoft, Tensile rubber with high spin and high control

    Finished product

    TT has always been a very technical game. It is one of the few games with lot of concepts of classical mechanics apply.

    How good are these ??
    What if you played a guy from the 80s who is 2X better than you ..
    But he's playing with the old wooden paddles I used to use a lifetime ago.
    Would this give you that much of an edge?

    actually nothing to do with edge, it has more to do with style.
    If lets say you are a hard hitter you would hit harder if your rubber have no cushioning or if you are chopper you would do extremely well with rubbers that do not spin at all.
    There were different eras in Table tennis, the old times where game was lot slower and more based on defence and chopping and then there was era of speed glue which made game a way faster.
    I mean it is like playing lawn tennis with wooden racquet compared to tennis being played with metal racquet. Yesteryears player would have a tough time adjusting to the new game because it is way too quick.
    Initially there were 21 points and 5 serves now it is 2 serves and 11 points. Games are very nerve wrecking, you cannot make a single mistake. One of the reasons why Chinese are so good at TT is that they work very very hard like 6 hour each day training for years.
