DAY 2: Tulpe 007 Pro Blue Sponge (38D?) Impressions

2 Hours, matchplay vs Normal opponents - still UNBOOSTED

1) Speed of the rubber sheet has picked up.
a) it was easier to topspin outright winners.
b) the ball sometimes went long if I had lazy footwork and did not topspin.

2) It is still very good for inside of the table forehand attacking 
a) FH flick or loop off bounce to create short safe arc that clears net
b) sometimes the arc was so short that i was unintentionally attacking mid table.

3) Looping is starting to feel more sponge.
a) the rubber topsheet feels connected to the sponge, but you can definitely tell when the sponge speed engages
b) it was not quite as easy to do topsheet only brush

4) Spin is still VERY good. Moreso than STN, perhaps more than K1 Hybrid Euro. 
a) opponents were surprised by the side to side movement on some of my loops
b) i was surprised by how much my topspin would bring the ball down earlier than I expected

5) It is still slower on flat hitting than a Euro or Japanese rubber, but felt reliable with closed face topspin.


Day 3 will be tomorrow, I think.
Looking forward to it.

It is still best boosted. The 38 degree version is at keast at the level of s3 speed and softness when boosted 3 layers of falco.

DAY 3: Tulpe 007 Pro Blue Sponge (38D?) Impressions

2 Hours, forehand drilling including loop and block - still unboosted

1) Here comes the noise
a) big chinese crack sound showed up
b) rubber plays more like a Spinnier Sanwei Target National
2) Throw is getting a little longer, deeper arc
a) Speed of the rubber sheet has continued to pick up.
b) Spin is still very, very good

3) In spite of my fears about marrying an elastic sponge to a tacky topsheet, there is still some very linear output from the rubber

During drilling, I noticed that I that blade face adjustments (angle) provided very direct changes the to spin and depth of my shots. Closing the face made my shots land shorter, and spinnier - opening the face was deeper and faster. When I say direct, I mean that the changes in arc felt very linear and predictable; I could use the same stroke, while just varying the contact point, to deceive opponent better.
Yogi is probably right about boosting the rubber. But he is a much higher level player! 

And I wanted to give some perspective for someone at the other end of the spectrum.

Is this rubber available to buy anywhere as of now? I'm quite curious to give it a try.

I consider myself as above average only and have learned the correct textbook strokes.

No 38 degree available.
Only red 40 degree available for now.
