Of course we know why the Viscaria is that much hyped and deserves its throne too, as a blade actually used by so many at the highest level for so long; and the variants!

The KLS/KLP and its hinoki outer is to me the king of hearts among ALC blades though, only 5 plies, outer hinoki, alc, kiri core, that's it, a pure marvel on its simplicity isn't it? and it plays soft and bouncy!

And yet among all those legendary blades including Kong Linghui Special ( which had a handle sizeds eemingly for young girls) only one is still widely used among top players; indeed more than when it was first introduced.  That is the Viscaria, and it has been copied a lot.  Several ot the others mentioned have been discontinued.

With that said it is hard to entirely figure out what the OP was asking, and I still vote for speed glue.

Sponge is probably an even better answer.  I change my vote to that.

How about the ' new age ' plastic ping pong ball then ? 
  Otherwise, we would still be using rubber balls.

i merely started this poll to see if there is another product out that that is a good representation of table tennis, instead of the Mark V that was proclaimed by certain website.

Chinese table tennis total domination is arguably the product of table tennis history.

Chinese produce players and coaches for not only the CNT but as far as wide as micro nations Monaco and Luxembourg to large nations USA and Canada.

Rules are constantly changed and adapted to limit their domination with examples including number of player entries to prevent continuation of Olympic full clean sweeps and arguably service rule changes and eleven point system to level up the playing field.

The Chinese Super League is by far the most significantly challenging competition as only the very best of the rest can play at that highest tournament level.

CNT recognises this and has made efforts in spreading the love and passion for the sport with numerous initiatives such as co training with numerous other national associations as well as providing training in China.

So arguably like it or hate it China and Chinese worldwide table tennis phenomenon is a product of table tennis history?

Pretty sure "NEW AGE" refers to the new balls not the celluloid ones.

celluliod is plastic.
  but agree, ' new age ' may not be the most appropriate reference.
