I would like to give Rubicon a thorough test drive and write a review.
I've been playing exclusively with Nexy blades for over two years, and provided brief reviews and occasional comments on them on this forum.  The blades are have used include:
Kanaph
Actium (Tibhar/Nexy)
Lissom Oversize
Lissom Regular
Calix II (currently using)

Also, I'm currently playing with Nexy rubber -> Karis M+ on FH and Karis M on BH, so my test drive would be with all-Nexy gear.

Though I am testing now Zealot with new ELS and FXS and later Lissom sp. Will be happy to make comparison between 4th generation blades like zealot and rubicon as qualified tester.

I really like the low weight of Rubicon. I also haven't reviewed a blade in a while - since I have been using BBC blades only for several years now.

So I will try and get a qualified slot. I have reviewed quite a few Nexy blades before.

Nexy Color
Next Dexter
Nexy Lissom
Nexy Tuvalu
Nexy Oscar

I have also reviewed Calix II, Sahara, Spear and one or two Nexy rubbers.

Thanks!

Hey NEXY fans,
you may have read about Rubicon, the latest blade from NEXY: here is the announcement.


More pictures and information in the nexy.com store.

Oscar (user Nexy in this forum), is offering a free Rubicon blade (value $120) to 10 players in this forum that are willing to test and review the blade.
    
Here is the deal:
  • 5 Rubicon blades will be given to "qualified testers".
  • 5 Rubicon blades will be given to "lucky testers".

Qualified testers need to have a sound history of reviewing table tennis equipment. You can apply by posting in this thread (NOT by PM to me!) and adding a few words explaining your experience in reviewing table tennis equipment and one or more links to reviews you wrote. Preference goes to testers that understand the history of Nexy and can put the blade in perspective, so please specify how you plan to review the blade and to what you would compare it.
Qualified testers will be chosen by Oscar and myself.
Deadline for applying as qualified tester is December 28, 12:00 GMT (that's noon).

Lucky testers will be decided by lot. Any forum user may apply as lucky tester. You can apply by posting in this thread (NOT by PM to me!) and adding a number between 12 and 4445. To win, you must be among the 5 users that come closest to the number resulting from the concatenation of the FIRST two numbers of the German Lotto "6aus49" of the December 31, 2016, draw. A few examples: each number drawn is between 1 and 49 and numbers are displayed in ascending order, so if the first two numbers are "3" and "24", the winning number is 324; if the first two numbers are "12" and "45", the winning number is 1245. The draw is at 19:25 German time.
Deadline for applying as lucky tester is December 31, 12:00 GMT (that's noon). If your post was modified, it's the "last modified" date that counts. In case of draw, the user having a post with earlier posting/last modified date wins.
This may sound complicated, but we needed to find a random number generation mechanism that is transparent and tamper-proof. The results of the draw will be visible here (in German) and here (in English). In case of conflict, the German results are official. In case that for any reason there is no draw on December 31, the numbers of the subsequent draw will be used.

You are free to apply both as qualified and lucky tester.
For fairness, we will try to announce qualified testers before the draw on December 31, but no guarantee.
 
Selected testers (both qualified and lucky) are expected to order any item (even small) from the Nexy Tabletennis store and pay shipping costs to their location (likely about 20$). On top, they will get a free Rubicon blade. Testers will be able to select handle shape and preferred weight of the blade.

In exchange for the free blade, testers are expected to test the blade for at least a few training sessions and to post a fair review of the blade in this forum.

Selected testers will be announced here and receive detailed instructions about how to proceed by PM.

If you have questions, please post them publicly in this thread.
Thanks and good luck!    

In your original post I think you make a mistake: if the numbers are 1-49 then the lucky number will be between 12 and 4849 (not 4445).

I have never owned and played a Nexy before.
I would like to be a lucky tester for this beautiful blade.

Long time tester but been out with an injury for a while and thought I could'nt play ever again up till now. Wanted to pick up tabletennis and this forum again because of that and what do I see :) A chance to test a nexy once more.
Back to testing again this year. tested spartacus, calix 1 and 2,lissom and quabod for mister nexy back in the days. And ofcourse many blades from other brands like nittaku. butterfly, Xiom, Donic and more and tested lots of rubbers to. Play tabletennis for more then 20 years and would love to pick up the reviewing again with the rubicon.

Have a good new year you all.
set up: nexy calix

fh tenergy 05 2,1

bh blitz 2,1



second set ups :

WSC

FH tenergy 05

BH Blitz

lucky tester #530
if the numbers are sorted there is a big chance
that there will be at least one number (out of 6)
between one and ten

$ perl -e 'print int(1 + rand(9)) . int(1 + rand(49)) . "\n";'

Hi all, thanks for participating.
Sorry for being late, I've been away from the Internet for a few days...

The numbers of the German Lotto "6aus49" draw of December 31, 2016 were: 27 29 37 42 45 47.
Thus, the five lucky testers will be those closest to 2729 for Rubicon and 4547 for Karis.
I will announce the winners soon, tonight or tomorrow!

For now, I wish you all the best for 2017!

Let me know if I am wrong (I hope nobody takes offense I write this; just trying to help):

The 5 winners are from closer to further 2777, 2972, 2433, 2424, 2233


2233496
2424305
2433296
27290
277748
2972243

Note that the 18 entries below do not make sense given the instructions (18 entries out of 44!!!). 3 winners are among those. I am not saying they should be disqualified (it would not change anything for me as a lucky tester) but their lack of attention to the rules is not inspiring me to read their reviews.

0368           68 is not between 2 and 49
1007           07 is not higher than 10
1278           78 is not between 2 and 49
1298           98 is not between 2 and 49
1816           16 is not higher than 18
1849           there is no room to get 4 more numbers after the 2nd provided number
2048           there is no room to get 4 more numbers after the 2nd provided number
2222           we can't have the same number twice
2424           we can't have the same number twice
2777           77 is not between 2 and 49
2972           72 is not between 2 and 49
3292           92 is not between 2 and 49
3628           28 is not higher than 36
3650           50 is not between 2 and 49
3886           86 is not between 2 and 49
3888           88 is not between 2 and 49
3986           86 is not between 2 and 49
4444           we can't have the same number twice

If those entries are disqualified then the winners are:

2433, 2233, 2122, 1835, 1721

---------------------------

All entries with their difference from 2729 on the 2nd column:

0103 2626
0107 2622
0225 2504
0368 2361
