Would a paddle made entirely from a solid piece of hard wood , maple / oak , be better ? Equivalent ? Bad idea ? Too heavy ? Some way they do seems to be more artisanal than i tought.

Китайцы не дурачины всё до мелочей демонстрировать будто мастерить основания для настольного тенниса высочайшего класса . Я издавна покупаю основания компании Yasaka и доволен , стоимость Yasaka дешёвая и высококачественная .

Who actually makes the rubber prior to cutting it? I need it by the roll, not pre cut. Can anyone steer me in the right direction?
xevious2501 (2 years ago)
Im always for the working man, but sometimes you see a manufacturing line that just calls for robotics or just plain machine engineering. I hate seeing these poor souls doing the same mundane routing over and over and over again. i cant imagine doing that hour after hour day after day week after week for years on in. youd loose your mind. or go into some zen mode until one day you wind up hurting yourself. Ide rather see all these guys doing something more passion driven. but this is the reality of mass produced products still being done by hand. so the job aint great but it is a job.

Alguien sabe como se llaman cada una de esas maquinas?
Bean Cube (3 years ago)
Why don't we make the rubber transparent and use the red and black sponges to distinguish the two side of a tennis blade? How about allow the rubber to be repainted or resprayed rubber instead of re-glue rubber with sponge all the time? We need green sport, right? We need more good players and affordable equipment instead of greedy manufacturers. Players of the sport community should raise their voice about this.

An athlete (4 years ago)
please fear GOD , Make these equipments affordable !!!
Eiji Muroya (1 year ago)
There are many good product that don't cost too much. People usually believe higher priced equipment will help or develop better strokes. Wrong. You won't be better if you have a viscaria glued with a pair of tenergy 05, but your technique does. I use a donic epox offensiv which cost between 40 and 50 dollars, with donic bluefire M2 and DHS hurricane 2 neo and it's more than enough. The best player of my university uses a donic ovtcharov with a pair of donic bluefire and he's got a lightning fast topspin stroke. Focus more on your technique, practice more and find a good coach.
john li (2 years ago)
more expensive does not mean better in table tennis. its more important to get a blade and rubber that matches your play style than buying the most expensive bat you can
xro (2 years ago)
Could be old stock
Colin Bilzerian (2 years ago)
Anything below retail is either a fake chinese version or it is a damaged/used product
PLandt (4 years ago)
@An athlete Yeah I completely agree but if you look in the right places you can find equipment much cheaper. For example take a look at:http://ttdepot.tictail.com/ They have some of the best prices.

this is their old production video from decades ago. i think they still make blades this way though. rubber has gone to more advanced processes though the overall technique remains the same

strikewzen (6 years ago)
cheap ones in china are under 1 dollar, and i agree with you it's way to much for high end rubbers, but most popular sports require money to promote, for example you are paying for a company like butterfly to host events and sponsor players etc, plus their research cost. and after trying so many rubbers i still think butterfly is highest quality in both blades and rubber. they have the tech and skills to turn 5 dollar worth of material into best end product imo

yahhh no English? probably there's a secret here that we should not know about it heheheh
Enkidu1701 (6 years ago)
Interesting video, thank you. BTW When I see how fast the people who make the rubber are working (look from 9:40 to 11:00) I am still curious how we have to pay 30€, 40€ or even 50€ for a single rubber. (talking about prices in Germany - maybe it´s better in other countries) greetings e.
