Zhang rui meets against Miwa Harimoto in WTT Tunis final
Lots of people says Zhang rui is imitate CNT player for Mima Ito, because she is using short pips
Well, the way she played is not like Mima, who does a lot of short pips punching and sometimes
strawberry flick, but not Zhang rui
Anyway, I'm curious, what kind of short pips Zhang rui is using?

I don’t remember which website it was but I read a few Chinese articles saying that Zhang Rui and Sun Mingyang used to use Spectol but currently they both use VO>102 now.

Never ever will you be able to play with the same rubber or sponge advertised on online shops ,which the pros use.

They play with customized sponges,blades and I dare even say rubbers .Brands do survive thanks to the amateur world.A great number of amateurs STILL believe they can play with the exact equipment a pro uses.Brands need amateurs to believe they can play with what Zhang Rui -or whoever player comes to your mind - is presently playing .

Even the amateur anti world is so blind with reality.Pros do not use ,for example, the same SuperGlanti or if they did,they do something else to the top sheet to be slicker - I know this for a fact - .

Therefore,all the threads on what this new fancy pro or old legend is using at the moment are a waste of time imo but of course, you are entitled to ask for whatever information satisfies your curiosity .

@ charmander defender

Dear Sir,
May we shed more light on the matter of "castomized rubbers" you mentioned prior to here.
-- To begin with, "castomized rubbers" do not exist at all. ITTF did prohibited the use of any rubbers that are not commercially available. ref. T4 Technical Regulations.

Be happy.
