I’ve been playing with Grass dtech Ox in red for sometime now and it took a while to get used to the characteristics of the rubber. It’s important to know what it can and can’t do as once you’ve learnt that it has to be the best long pip rubber for disturbance/reversible. However, I thought I would be different and try the green version. I’ve now had a few seasons and a couple of league matches but I’m now convinced the green version doesn’t trouble the opponent as much. Far less disturbance. The control element is the same as is the bounce and trajectory. How can this be? I am now putting back the red sheet. Has anyone else found this to be the case

I haven't used it but I played against it over the weekend and it was very tough to play against. The player is very skilled with using the Grass D Tec S in the "standard" colors. He said he had the feeling that it was perhaps more grippy than red or black. Playing against it, it was tough to read whether he was giving me a lot of spin or a little.

I use the green and red d.tecs in OX, and can seemingly pick one at random with no change in effectiveness for my game.

Are you comparing a new sheet of green to an old, worn red sheet with less grip? Or two fresh colors?

Used the Green DTecS in a match for the first time last night and lost my first match in 5 to a guy using short pips on his forehand. I actually felt nervous and my defeat was probably due to that.
I beat their other two players comfortably.
I struggled a bit with the fact that the pips were new and a bit lively on a blade I have just started using.
I won’t be able to judge whether the green pips are different to the red until they are worn in.

I agree Bulldog. But do you like the colour? One of my opponents in my league match said the green was so different (colour wise)that it focussed his mind and was a reminder to him it’s long pips which he said helped him adjust his stroke. Interesting!

Players of real wisdom will keep their hands away of the green pimples. GREEN is the best "warning coloration" to unmask the twiddler..
Thank you, Tibhar. The pimpled Reptilian lost its toxic teeth.


Yeah, just get the black to match the black inverted sheet.. :lol: :lol: :lol: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

I love the colour. It will surely become less bright after a couple of months.

Not d.tecs!

It possesses the undying light of ping pong justice that shall never fade!
