Was looking in the latest LARC:

http://www.old.ittf.com/stories/pictures/LARC_2016B.pdf

in which, by the way, Adidas rubbers are listed (until March, anyhow).

What do I see under Andro?? The last Rasant I was aware of was Beat. Now there's a Rasant Chaos (if anyone wanted long pips with the famous green sponge.. here it is at last... :lol: :lol: :lol: ), number 034. Wonder if it's a long pips Tensor (do any others exist?). Then after that, numbers 035 and 036 are rubbers called "GTT" and "Good" (Hey man, that rubber any good? Yeah, it's Good, man.. :lol: ). And what's this???? Numbers 037 to 042 are.. what?? A whole new line called "Rasanter". :lol: Count them. Six of them. Except they're not called "Rasanter Turbo", "Rasanter Grip", "Rasanter Beat", etc., they're Rasanter R37, V42, R42, V47, R47 and R50. Probably in reference to sponge hardness, but what about the V and R? Pips arrangement? :lol: A la Sriver L and Sriver S perhaps? I remember using the word "rasanter" as an adjective (since Andro was using "rasant" as a synonym for "fast"), never thought it'd become a new brand name. Maybe they're rasanter than rasant. Interesting what the next Andro catalog will look like. As a matter of fact, I'm heading over to the Andro website now to see what the deal is.

No Rasanters yet on the web site, but Rasant Chaos looks like this:

Yeah, they claim it's a Tensor, the sponge has "Tensor-effect", but you can buy this in OX... :lol:

Oh, have you seen the Beat video? First time, myself.



Somehow, I don't think that's the "click" people say Tensors make... :lol:

Don't think Damien Eloi's using that weird-shaped blade any more:

Not quite sure what the marketing people were thinking there! I can only assume it is aimed at a young demographic! Certainly doesn't appeal to me.
