My EJing continues at a modest pace. I had a darker 7p 2a 7t waiting for me when I got home from the B75. I really want to like the blade. It's small and light, soft but stiff, and has great control in warmups. But when I played sets with it I completely sucked. Not sure if it is worth a longer try, or just re-sell and move on.

On a happier ej note, I bought a sheet of nittaku fastarc g-1, because Mima Ito :inlove: :inlove: :inlove: :inlove: . Traditionally I try one non-tenergy rubber a year, hate it, and continue with t05. But I kind of like the fastarc. It is spinny and serves stay short more easily. It also has a lower throw, but one I can live with. And it is definitely easier to flat smack the ball with fastarc than with t05. I didn't do drills with it yet. That will give a better read on consistency and shot quality. But for the first time I have a non-tenergy forehand rubber that I don't immediately want to peel off and put in the trash.

I have tournaments the next two Saturdays, my first with SP. I expect to do badly, but you never don't know, as my cousin David used to say. I'll post some video here regardless.

I didn't take any video. The camp did make a 'day in the life' video with a split-screen showing me and a fellow camper. It's on the B75 camp facebook page I think. (I'm not on facebook so not sure)

Found it on youtube. This is a takeoff of a Stiga promo video with XX. It's funnier if you know that video.

:D Nice!!

By the way, just searching some clips, by chance I watch one in which you appear playing in the left of the screen (not table at all, haha). A Florida tournament this year.

Yes, that was a particularly bad tournament in this 11 months and counting slump I am in.

Here's a good point from yesterday, or as good as it can be in a 0-3 loss to someone rated 90 points below me. In Denmark they made me buy proper TT shoes, and it occasionally makes a difference.

Here is a different full match vs a stronger player. Afterwards he said he hated my BH block (the SP) enough to stop playing into it. That has promise. Unfortunately it was outweighed by my FH being awful. I haven't watched the slow motion yet, but I'm pretty sure I was out of balance and position 90% of the time. I guess that's what better players do to you.
