Blade: TSP Balsa 8.5
FH: Victas V>15 Extra Max.
BH: Victas V>15 Extra 2.0
I have ordered TSP Balsa 8.5, Victas V>15 Extra Max. and 2.0 for FH&BH, it will probably arrive today.

My style has changed in late years, now I prefer being highly aggressive, close to the table style, main focus is 3rd ball attack.

I don't play in a club, just tournaments every now and then, but I will try to go for the university team next year, so I will train as much as my curriculum permits :)

I just wonder how would you rate this combination and what should I consider while I'm training and playing (e.g. 'You should focus more on bh flicks and fh fades')

It still sounds like an odd combination, but my last combo was Joola Carbon, Yinhe Sun Pro and Xiom Musa, which now feels excruciatingly slow. This is the first combo that came out of my own due diligence. I'm not a pro neither on equipments nor playing so... Go easy on me please :)

I would like to share some photos once I get.

First try: It seems like a good combo. Fast, indeed but it was hard to keep ball on the table,im not used to such pace :) backhand topspins are much easier, I give half of the effort I used to and it goes much faster. Yet, blocks and shots are where it shines i think.

I need your help on someting: Black rubber looks odd to me

File comment: Looks like it has 'bumps', not played more than 4-5 minutes so I am not sure whether it is ok.

I've glued many V15 rubbers and never seen this. If anything, appearance wise they are super flat and look great compared to the MXP. When I get a chance, I will take a picture of my blade with V15 on it. No bumps or anything on mine.

When you glue it, be sure to wait 10-15 minutes for the glue to dry completely.

I think I saw something similar when I put too much glue on the blade and did not spread it enough, or did not wait for it to dry completely (rubber cement), like 'notfound123' mentioned. Mostly harmless, IMHO.

Your main challenge will be getting used to the catapult effect from such a fast balsa blade and thick tensor rubbers, the 5.5 may have been a better place to start. You might find it a little more controllable once the initial factory boosting of the rubbers reduces. Also worth while comparing control of the side with 2.0mm against the side with max as I have found thinner rubbers work best on TSP balsa blades. If you are still struggling just go back to Xiom Musa in 2.0mm as I found this worked really well on a TSP 6.5 blades giving better control and linearity.

Yes, this! If you put a lot of RC and if it's a wet (even a little) it will get that appearance. Doesn't make much of a difference in play though in my experience, except in the first day where it's got a little bit of a speed glue effect. But it's minor.
