Or in other words, how to cheat while thinking real hard that you are not cheating. Taken from the playbook of a notable outdoor table tennis exponent.

If you want frictionless pimples, work on convincing the ITTF to remove the pimples minimum friction rule. You might be surprised how much support you would get.


Don’t you think it’s odd though that there appears to be a double standard? Forumers regularly mention boosting and rarely a negative comment is seen. Yet the odd defender who mentions that he ages his pimples prematurely gets singled out and chastised for it.

I'll second Dusty054 on this one. :up: and I don't think that Charmander Defender is a cheat either.

I will just say that boosting is illegal and I don't do it, but the fact that its illegality is situational undermines the immorality involved when a player does it. The player knows full well that they are breaking an ITTF law but given that current tests can only catch out badly done boosting.

The illegality involved in making low friction pimple rubbers more frictionless is more like saying "I am performing a legitimate activity here, oh dear, look what has happened to my poor pimpled rubber, wink, wink". I admit that, again there is no current test that can be applied as the minimum friction rule is only as at manufacture, and there is an allowance for "normal wear and tear".

....mmmmm,.... I am trying to think now, how you have been thinking about me thinking real hard that I am not cheating ,....I am trying to understand how someone can have the ability to know how others can think or if they think at all at a certain point......I am trying to understand how easy it is to accuse somebody of something without real proofs ......

I am not going to enter the debate -once again - of the legal outdoor tt play.....which makes the lp frictionless in the end ,..... for those who feel good - it seems it is your case - by thinking outdoor tt play is morally wrong and therefore, those who agree with the ittf permission to play outdoors are considered cheaters ,then,.... it is your perfectly valid opinion .... even if the ittf supports outdoor tt play ......

Playing outdoors is use, just leaving your rubber in the sun for days is treatment ...... when the ittf bans playing outdoors, then, I can begin to understand your point ,....in the meantime, it seems you feel so bad my lp works wonders due to the outdoor tt play,.... yes, I say you feel really bad because if not, I would be hearing other kind of observations from you ,......

I suggest you pay MORE attention to inverted rubber players.It seems ILLEGAL boosting is all the rage,... how easy it is - it seems- to make a war against lps or make people feel guilty when one JUST follows what the ittf sees with good eyes- it appears the ittf encourages outdoor tt play .......

Finally,I must say I like you because you make interesting reading for the other forum members ,..... :lol: :lol: ..... peace for everyone and have a beautiful training day :)

I agree with both ttbuddy and you,...... it seems some people still like to revive the negative "Superblock" discomfort era when certain kind of players hated close to the table defenders ,...... inability to beat them created a pervasive negative feeling towards close to the table defense ...... and those players who shine nowadays by using this style of play are rendered cheaters when haters see a good performance from them .... they start to be questioned and their rubbers inspected ,.....

That´s the way the cookie crumbles !!! I accept those kind of negative observations,..... that´s the way life works it seems,..... you have good intentions and bad intentions in life,..I accept that already,..... and I am at peace!!! :angel:

Can't say I've seen anyone "chastised" for aging their pips (people post about it all the time in the "Experimental" section - most want to know how to do it better). Made fun of, sure.. :lol: Pointing out that it rains sometimes is a favorite, mine was pointing out that if the sun-tanning salon people won't let you stick your bat in their UV light machine, you could get in there yourself and lay the bat on your tummy. Just don't play without a shirt for a while.. :lol:
