C'mon guys, cut ARB some slack. Just because nobody's won an ITTF championship with this blade doesn't mean we should mock the guy. (Or a national championship. Or a local tournament. Or anything at all for that matter.) Lots of good ideas have seemed crazy at first; the Swiss cheese hydroplane, tissue paper underwear, and turpentine flavoured lip gloss were all pooh poohed in their day. Nobody ever thought concrete toothbrushes would be the success they are today, or that soluble contact lenses would ever be SpecSavers' biggest seller. We have to learn to be less cynical, people!

Did you see what he said a couple of posts up? It was supposed to be a surprise at the 2012 Olympics LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL

I guess this crappy video was posted to build hype for his grand appearance at Rio 2016

Let's see.
At first I thought, troll? tick
Then self-dellusional? tick
Maybe even, charlatan, ...maybe.
But then I thought, very eloquent. tick
Why it can only be the one and only painter from Vancouver!!!!

Hello, Rick. How long do you think that it will take before the moderators ban you this time?

Larry, Larry where are you? Rick's back!

Rather than commenting back and forth you need to post a video with this blade...

You're quite right, except Mr Brown has no intention of doing anything other than trolling. He doesn't have video from any legitimate play for two reasons: 1. the blade in the pictures is illegal, and 2. it doesn't work anyhow.

There is certainly nothing in the images that gives us a clue what it's made of.  Hell, it may not even be made of wood (which would be problematic to say the least).

Thanks to a poster at Table Tennis Daily we learn that Anthony R. Brown has played the same game on chess forums and has been banned from many of them.  Quoting Brabhamista, "In general [his trolling] takes the form of carpet bombing forums in a particular topic with a "genius idea". He then evades criticism or questions, plays offended and slowly but surely stokes the fire through promises of further info in the near future and prodding, probing and baiting members in general - not unlike in this particular post in our forum."

More information is here:

http://www.tabletennisdaily.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?12024-The-Advanced-Response-Blade-The-Future-of-Table-Tennis-Now!-by-Anthony-R-Brown&p=132300&viewfull=1#post132300

Given this posting history, and the fact that he has posted this "video" on four different table tennis forums that I know of, with pretty much the same response everywhere, Mr. Brown can be advised as follows:  The next post from you on this subject must be a video of someone playing with this new blade.  Any other comment you make will be hidden.  Any attempt to start another thread about this new blade design will get you banned.

I'm sorry Baal but I disagree. Trolls must be allowed to troll, otherwise they have no reason to exist. Who are we to deny someone their right to exist?

I would, however, like to offer a compromise: Given that Mr Brown is already a treasured member of TTDaily (and other forums), it does seem completely unnecessary for him to be here as well; I suggest that his membership here be cancelled and he is referred back to TTDaily where he can troll to his heart's content!

Someone should build one of these and get it out there for people to test and video.  Wink

It reminds me the hammer throw Olympic discipline. Note that away enough from the table for more time the technique can apply (ok maybe one body rotation instead of 4 or 5). I want to see that 2 handed forehand loop kill with both forearms snaps.

That it doesn't work - I agree.

Illegal - why? If something is flat, doesn't have holes on the playing surface and made of wood - then it can be called TT blade and is legal by ITTF rules. Unless I am missing smth here...

In any case I completely agree with Baal - our patience is not infinite. Any further attempts at this type of trolling from Mr. "Future of Table Tennis" will have to be erased, and followed with a ban.

Look at the amount of blade not covered by rubber:



Originally posted by ITTF </div><table style=padding: 3px 0px; font-size: 8pt; font-family: Arial;><t><tr><td =#F5F6F2 valign=top>2.04.04 ITTF

The covering material shall extend up to but not beyond the limits of the blade, except that the part nearest the handle and gripped by the fingers may be left uncovered or covered with any material.
