Tonight I tested Scandal in 0.9 on Grubba ALL +. I liked the short blocking a lot. It is a slow rubber and the first thing I thought was : ' oh, this is like Spinlord Gigant on steroids ' :lol: . Reversal was quite all right but pushes and sidewipes were too slow, meaning an off, off + blade is needed to improve in this department .

I attacked back spin quite all right with great sinking effect, sidewipes although too slow where very effective too .

I returned all the services very well and low; the most difficult service return was a very fast no spin ball, similar to the problems with long pimples , the great looper attacked the second ball effectively .I think I must learn to block this kind of serves lower because it is not easy to block short since the rubber plus the blade used was off + and the speed was really high .

The next training session will be with Nittaku Ludeack plus Xiom vega Intro 2.0 on the FH. Things will change surely with improvement in pushes and sidewipes.More speed , spin and back spin in serves. This is the competition bat for my tournament on the 3rd and 4th of August .

The following week, tests will continue with either Reflection in 0.9 or ABS 2 soft in 2.5

Hi!

Tonight 3 hours of intense training.I proved my theory right : The Flantis behave very differently depending on the kind of blade you use .That´s why I am testing MSP and DR N. rubbers on different blades .

So far the best combination for me is Scandal 0.9 on Deluxe Carbon ,which is precisely the blade Amir is using in the Scandal promo video .

I love this blade : Blocking with inverted- Xiom Vega intro 2.0 - on the fh and bh is great, good speed and fantastic control .The anti blocks short and with great control. Atttacking back spin phenomenal, pushes with good enough speed , attacking with inverted safe with great speed- not too much, the blade is off - but by using sponges in max or 2.0, you get the necessary speed .

I twiddled a lot , I use ST handle and as it is small , twiddling is performed fast and easily . Attacking with inverted on the BH when twiddling caught my opponents by surprise with little time to react .

I suggest you all try this blade. I don't think you will be let down. I am sure it will perform great with pips too . It was very nice really, the way I felt the ball on blocks either with inverted or the anti .

Bottom line : great quality and it seems Scandal performs at its best on this blade . ;)

In one of the posts of the anti forum - I don't remember which one - AA claimed that the length of the block with the anti also depended on the forehand rubber, which I agree completely. As the pips perform differently depending on the fh rubber - soft or hard, sponge thickness too - so does the anti.
I changed the Xiom Vega Intro 2.0 on my fh to a very different rubber - Sandwind 1.5, soft sponge- and I must say the control on the anti improved tremendously and also the great thing was that on twiddling with SW while blocking I sent a nasty no spin ball due to its half anti nature .

A great combination for me is Deluxe Carbon , Scandal 0.9 , SW 1.5 . More conservative and even safer if I use Grubba All + .

A must in this anti game is twiddling and with a nice wrist movement on the BH , twiddling is lethal . :lol:

Strange but true how a different FH rubber can affect the playing characteristics of the pips/anti on the other side. Deluxe Carbon , Scandal 0.9 , SW 1.5 with twiddling must be a real horror/nightmare for opponents :headbang:
