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. I’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.

I've got an wrist injury with my right hand and It's very difficult to play with my left hand!
Thanks!

I'll second the recommendation for Viper. Especially if you found dtecs too fast.

Interesting. I switched to Talon from Dornenglanz precisely because DG was losing pips like crazy and Talon never did. In any case, I’m playing with Blitzschlag now. I think it’s pretty nasty, although not as fast as the Talon

Hmmm, do you really think there is a 'National version' of this rubber?

Second the comments on Giant Dragon's QC. Have played extensively over the years with Talon, Cropcirlces, Giant Long, and Meteorite and, despite, heavy play, have never lost a pip. Can't say the same for DG, 388d-1, and others. Must have been a one-off situation.

Yeah Blitzschlag is controllable but you can make nasty attacks on backspin balls.. and super low/short blocks.

Dtecs was too fast for me as well.

'Pushblocker' says it's the only place that has it:

Not cheap, at 30Eur...
