I'm curious as to what equipment changes people have actually performed in order to adapt to 40+ balls.
If some of you could share your experience, others could benefit.

So, what did you change, why did you change and how happy are you with it?

No thanks. I was looking for simple and concise statements about how and why people have changed equipment, not for the life stories of lp or anti players.

Funny that no one seems to care or have any strong opinion on this as for me it's quite obvious that rubbers with softer and/or thinner topsheets and harder sponges seem to be much better with any 40+ balls.

Of course no one has any great opinion.
The change has affected everyone at the same time. Any modifications to one's game has probably been very gradual and hardly noticeable. That's why it's not worth the effort to have any great analysis.

>60yo, losing weight 30 pounds to go

Xiom ZX1 (Blade) + DHS hurricane H3/H8 (rubbers)

When all else fails, there is always delusion.

Celluloid era: 2012-2014 seasons

Timo Boll ZLF/ 86 grams/ FH hurricane 3 neo/ BH Regular Hexer

Plastic ball: 2015 season to present

Timo Boll ZLC/ 86 grams/ FH Hurricane 3 neo/ BH hexer powersponge (softer sponge than hexer, same

The heavier ball just made my ZLF set up so MUSHY

The harder feel of the ZLC made it more solid for me, and the softer sponged hexer allowed me to spin better by slowing the zlc blade
I am a total Newb. Come at me!

A lot of people I know who used to use all wood blades switched to Btfly ALC blades. This included several 2500 players. Personally I didnt change equipment but had to change technique a little and really concentrate on good body rotation.

I change equipment so much, it's hard to tell. I do think a faster/harder blade a good idea due to less spline and slower game.
Gambler Hinoki Vector or AVX J power-Double inverted. Gambler mech tek FH black on FH, tibhar elp or T05 red on BH. I can't seem to commit....
