Has anyone tried this new - old Super Block rubber (for recreational play obviously)? :D

I have an old Super Block and play with it happily, but I was wondering if this is exactly the same as old (which feels perfect anyway). But did Doctor change anything to bring it to the extreme? :D

According to Dr N, this new version will be "even a bit slower and a bit more disruptive (spin reversal) than the original version". It won't have the ITTF logo.

I suspect the ITTF would not have liked them selling the old version, since it still carried the ITTF logo, so they've made a new version without it.

I am curious! Perhaps I could draw my own ITTF logo to the rubber :)

Advertising Design Award Laureate.

I'm now about to give up this masterpiece poster at a reasonable sum. Mr.N is willing to own.

If they are illegal, then what is the point of the release Super Block Extreme? Can use old Super Block?!

Both are illegal for formal competitions, but both are perfectly fine for many local or social competitions.

Would love to use this stuff today, even with the awful ABS ball.

A copy is always worse than the original. If you already do - really legal rubber close in properties to the old Super Block.

It is indeed a bit slower than the old one and even seems a bit smoother if that’s possible

I ordered multiple ones, but received an email from them afterward saying it would be delayed several weeks. So I've paid and all that, yet won't have anything shipped

What is the advantage of Super Block Extreme? And is it worth it to buy Super Block Extreme, if there is a Super Block? Since they are both illegal.

They mention the differences/advantages above. Slower, etc.

It's strictly for fun.

They are not illegal, they just can't be used in events held under ITTF rules and regulations.
