Highlights of this week: the widespread use of D09c, D05 and T05H; Mizuno Altius Combo; the era of thick plates.

The word “top gear”, Author is often asked in the private messages and messages of backstage players: What is the “top gear” rubber of this bottom plate? If you carefully check the equipment configuration of the more than 90 contracted players of Butterfly, you will find that the three most frequent rubbers: D05, D09c and T05 Hard. Then, depending on your personal style, some are used in the forehand and some are used in the backhand. For example, Lin Yunru has a forehand T05H and a backhand D05; Zheng Yijing, who is also from Taiwan, is the opposite, with a forehand D05 and a backhand T05H. Lee Sang-soo, forehand D09c, backhand D05; also from South Korea, Lin Jong-hoon, forehand T05H backhand D09c.

So, if you want to find the top gear no-brainer, just pick and choose from these three.

However, it does not mean that it is really suitable for you, you can really play well. If you look at the backhand rubber selection of the domestic provincial and municipal teams, the current highest frequency is still T05. We have said that T05 has a better feeling of wrapping the ball, and it can produce better spin under medium and small power; although D05 and D09c are quite stable in “eating ball”, but when the force is insufficient, the rotation is not as good as T05, which is very Easily pushed back or pushed back.

And many amateur golfers can hardly control T05 even with backhands. For pen-hold shots, maybe T05fx or T19, which are more penetrating and biting, are more suitable.

Author mentioned before that T64 feels a little under-supported in the current era of plastic balls. But in fact, it still depends on the board. On the external aromatic carbon, T19 and T64 are not too soft; but usually on the built-in ALC, the supporting force is a little worse, and I feel that T80 is more comfortable. But the specifics depend on the individual, this is just a rough picture.

Mizuno Altius Combo

There are very few Mizuno blade in the chinese table tennis media, probably because the domestic general generation does not have it, and the author has only played the Fortius FT of Oshima Yuya before. There is no domestic agent, it should be considered that it is still unable to sell the quantity. However, the weekly observation must include a wide range of content. Today we see Altius, the blade of Mizuno’s series.

In addition to butterfly, Japanese brands (including some domestic and German brands) have been released, and they like to follow a style. For example, Nittaku Tornado has one external device and one built-in (Tornado speed and power); Victas also has ZX-Gear Out and Inn. Mizuno’s Altius also has Inner (built-in) and Outer (external).

However, recently there was an Altius Combo. Combo means combination, because some golfers like the built-in feel, but they like to be faster. Combo also has a built-in aramid carbon structure, but for faster speed, the surface material is thinned by 0.2mm and the large core is thickened. In terms of overall thickness, Altius Combo is 5.8mm, while Altius Inner is 5.6mm.

This method of thinning the face material/strength material and thickening the core also appeared in the transition from “Hurricane Long 5 to Hurricane Long 5X”. This makes the Long 5 from a sharp forehand to a swinging speed type, with more even forehands and backhands, shorter holding time, and rapid growth of the Long 5X.

The Age of Thick Blade

In the era of plastic balls, in view of the increase in the proportion of topspinning, after the bottomspinning, it will be a bit close to the middle stage. It’s harder than before to score in one round. Therefore, in the use of the blade, the thick blade of 3+2 have a picking up situation.

Boll has mainly used PRIMORAC Carbon for the past year, and Zhang An also used Nobilis, which is about 7mm thick, for these fresh meats. The built-in carbon plates have also thickened. The original Innerforce Layer ALC is only 6.0mm, and Ocharov ALC has reached 6.2mm. The rigidity has been improved, and the speed of the borrowing force has become more crisp and crisp. Super Zhang Jike is only 5.6mm, Super Mizutani Hayabusa is 5.8mm, and SuperTomokazu is 6.2mm.
