Privet (hello),

I used to play with old Dtecs (I miss it) then regular Dtecs, but too fast. I changed to Talon but lose pips fast, and Talon National Team too expensive. Is there a clone to Talon? Same geometry or similar? Thank you.

Weird. I never lost pips with talon.

I assume you are speaking about OX pushing?

You will get the usual advice of everything, but I thought Piranja and Joola badman were similar performance-wise. Felt different though.

Bomb talent maybe, but I only briefly hit with it years ago. Iā€™m speaking mostly based on what others have said.

Also heard viper performs well and similar but no direct experience.

I abuse LPs like few others, swinging powerful BH topspin drives with OX LPs like GD Talon, and I've never had a sheet of Talon loose a pip.. and I've owned at least 5-6 of these. I consider it one of the most durable LPs out there. Are you certain you're not using a counterfeit version? Any pip that sells for $20+ will breed counterfeits. I attach mine with Donic glue sheets, but that 100% firm bond tends to be harder on pips, not easier.
