See what Sanwei has to say.



(I about bust a gut when he.. did.. that... :lol: :lol: :lol: ) Tayjai Plus.. :lol: :lol:

There's some explanation about tacky vs. non-tacky rubbers, and why, in the Chinese scheme of things, they use tacky on the forehand and non-tacky on the backhand. He recommends the Fextra for beginners (it's a Clipperoid, so I don't know if I'd agree.. I think the M8 would be a better choice).

I also came across this earlier:



Looks like T88-Taiji has the same strange shape that Target National has out of the packet. Wonder what else has this shape - it'd make measuring areal density a pain in the rear. Another interesting snippet of information is that Taiji is non-tacky. Looks like he's using low-VOC "organic" speed glue to attach the rubbers.

By the way, the Chiang Mai club has two purple tables like that.. except I thought they were Yinhe. You do get used to it after a short while.

I've got a sheet of the T88 Taiji coming. There's actually two versions of it - one is in the pink wrapper and costs about $12. This one is cut in the weird shape and has the pink "german" sponge. The other comes in a dark grey package, costs about $9 and comes with a beige sponge which is supposed to be lightweight. It's rectangular, as far as I can tell. Blurb's the same on the back - apparently both are to be used as "backhand rubber".

Anyone else ever evaluate blades by knocking the handle on the side of your head? :lol:

One of the members at my club, evaluates blades by lightly smacking the blade-head against his temple ... I tried it a couple of times, noticed that different blades made a different sound, when knocked against the temple .. maybe, thats the logic..
