There is a video circulating on the internet recently: a ping pong ball is firmly stuck by a piece of Victas rubber and does not move. The video shows a ping pong ball being firmly stuck to a piece of Victas rubber and not moving. This powerful stickiness, which appeared on Breeze 3 years ago, has come back to life, and it is still a piece of the jacket! Everyone is looking forward to it: what kind of spark will be generated when the sticky and high elasticity sponges are combined?
This is the Triple Double Extra (TD for short). NIWA Koki used it in the backhand position in the recent All Japan Championship. Huh, this is a bit strange. When Butterfly D09c was introduced, everyone naturally thought it was a forehand rubber. The high viscosity and high stiffness is just right for the forehand. Moreover, most people are used to the backhand position of the astringent set, even if some use the sticky set, it is also soft and low hardness. But this TD, obviously not soft ah. Mudpuddle teacher use the highest hardness sticky sleeve TD for backhand, won’t it be too slow? Is it to strengthen the arc and control?
Let’s take a look at the hardness and basic properties of the Victas Triple series.
The recommendation of this suitable object, if not Victas is showing a high level of force, it is underestimating the adaptability of the majority of Chinese golfers to high hardness sticky sets! And, obviously, we are most interested in super sticky, so we have to use whatever our idol (Mr. Mud Puddle) uses!
That’s right, today we are going to test this TD.
First, this does not seem to be a traditional sticky sleeve
What should a traditional sticky sleeve look like? High viscosity, small power ball does not go. Not much under medium power. Only when the power is strong, it starts to “move”, and it usually needs to be filled with oil or rubber before it works well. Speed is driven by spin.
What about this TD? It doesn’t go under small power, but starts to move under medium power, eh, the elasticity is very good, and the speed is quite fast. I’ve just brushed the inorganic glue once. This elasticity and speed is a little slower than the top butterfly shibboleth Tenergy, but after all, it is a sticky rubber surface, but it is very close. Is it the most elastic and fastest sticky set I’ve ever played? Most likely (without gluing).
After removing the sticky film, the whole sheet of 74.3g is a little heavy at 51g on my cross board. For the average person, it is more suitable for the forehand. If you want to be lighter and softer, you can consider TR, because the weight of TE is not much lighter.
I did not play the softest TR, but according to the picture observation, TD and TE are wild breeze 3 kind of high-density sponge, while TR is more like foam bigger cake sponge. TR is naturally soft, but TD and TE is still no weakness. The TD is fast and sharp.
Second, high elasticity, strong viscosity, high-density sponge
This series is produced in China. So the stickiness of the rubber surface is naturally different, and it is really sticky to the touch, reminding people of the Breeze 3 rubber surface some years ago. TD is the opposite.
It does feel hard in the hand. Because the type is different from the Brio series, it is hard to compare the hardness of Brio 3. But there is a 39-40 degree kind of support. This high-density sponge makes you feel that the upper limit of power is very high, not only can pull many boards steadily, a board explosion is achievable.
This high elasticity is most easily seen when bouncing off the opponent’s curling ball. The bounce is a bit easy to get out of bounds. When fast attacking, thanks to the high elasticity, the first speed is also fast enough. The TD is really remarkable for unifying high viscosity and high elasticity in one.
1、Control on the table.
With this high viscosity rubber, the small ball control is as delicate as that of Brio 3. It is easy to swing short and not high, and it is easy to split long. I can say that the control is very handy.
2、Half Launching Lift.
At first, I felt the rubber was a bit hard, but after I adapted to it for a while, it was still very good. Because this rubber is sticky enough, if you hang a board on the backhand or pull a board on the forehand, the arcing ability is really strong and good on the table. TD is also super sticky, but the rotation of this board is not that strong.
- Powerful pulling: When pulling.
When pulling, it is obvious that it is much sharper than Biao Biao 3 without filling rubber. One speed is much faster. Brush once inorganic glue, not fill oil primer, can pull out high speed, can see the sense of internal energy is a bar. Once the glue is filled, the effect is even more extraordinary, straight to the top of the astringent set of brawny speed. But generally, we don’t do that. Because this is one side of the internal energy rubber. Pure inorganic is good.
During the pulling process, I felt the high support of TD, especially the strong arc ability, hey, it is really stable. In terms of rotation performance and second jump, the sense of pressure is still not as strong as that of Wild Breeze 3 after filling the rubber. Here we find the biggest difference between TD and Brio 3: TD is still a high speed style, relying on speed to restrain the opponent, rather than relying mainly on rotation like Brio 3. It is not as spinning as Brio 3, but the speed is much sharper. I have to say, there is still a difference in philosophy: although it is made in China, the core of the jacket is still speeding first, right?
Of course, in the plastic ball era, high-speed attack and defense is the main theme. By pulling a board of very rotating high hanging to score, more and more difficult, unless facing a weak opponent —— otherwise, just turn, too slow, will still be pulled back.
4, defense and borrowing power in the addition of force.
Rotation, TD can not yet rival the wild breeze 3. speed, beyond. Defensively is also very solid. This sponge sweet spot is quite large. Especially in the borrowing of power, such as bouncing the opponent’s arc ball, it is easy to use. The speed is fast, directional, and quite stable. At once, I understood the idea of using TD as a backhand: this rubber is really not the traditional slow and sticky domestic set, it is really fast and the sense of internal energy is the best in the sticky set. The tearing is very cool and stable, and the popping is crisp and fast.
The hardness of TD is fine for the author who is used to high hardness, but for many players, TE or TR may be more suitable. But it is undeniable that in the hands of professional players, there is no problem with TD on the backhand. There is support and ball holding, and high elasticity. The forehand position is still a bit different from Brio 3. It’s not as spinning, but fast enough. For amateur players who need to pull a board with a lot of spins to restrain their opponents, Brio 3 should be a more appropriate choice. For those who want to pull out the threat of speed, or to pull and attack, TD and softer TE will be quite good choices. I also believe that this hardness, in fact, most amateur players to adapt to the next, can play well.
