If 2-3 months counts as "considerable length of time", then my experience is relevant - When I had shoulder problems few years ago I used Tibhar Actium, a combination blade, to play mixed defense (chopping, blocking, soft looping) with inverted rubbers on both sides.

I didn't have to make meaningful adjustments to play with Actium, and  I believe that most players who can play with different rubbers on FH and BH are likely to feel comfortable using a combination blade that isn't dramatically different from what they typically use.

I used Double Day Yaliant which is a combination blade with H3Neo on FH and T64/R47 on BH. I actually prefer the harder FH and the slower BH as ai mostly block and open from the BH.

Lucky Tester - 3848

I have used Combination Blades for nearly all of my time playing local league (now top tier) table tennis: Dr Neubauer Titan (made by Achim Rendler), Sauer & Troger Zeus and currently Double Day Valiant Terminator, using double inverted or more often with with OX / sponged pips BH.

Yes you are, currently.

All, actually I'm planning to close the "skilled players" list a few days earlier. The reason is that the selection may become more complicated, as I decided to pull in non-USATT rated players. My bad for changing the criteria. Anyway, if you want to sign up for the "skilled players list", please do in the next two days, i.e. before 25 January 2018, 23:59 GMT. Thanks.

Long time lurker here...

I probably qualify as a skilled tester, played for Ireland u21/university level up to a few years ago. From what I know of the US rankings I should be above 2000 anyway.

If not then put me down as a lucky tester please.

Rien ne va plus. No more applications for "skilled players", please.
I will deal with the selection probably tomorrow.
Those that will not be selected can still apply as lucky testers or qualified reviewers, if they wish.

Hi and welcome to the forum.
If you feel lucky you can participate as "lucky tester" and if you win you can get an Arche with handle and weight of your choice at the price of shipping costs from Korea to the UK.

Otherwise I could include you in the European testing that I will start organising in a week or so, but there's only one blade (ST) that is circulated among all testers and then sent back to me. Since you're a new user, though, it would be necessary that someone vouches for you.

Guesstimate anywhere between 2000-2300, you could use the median of that or ask the community? 

If I am 2000+ and that is in the skilled player list then please add me in it


Help!
Can someone with experience of the USATT Rating have a look at the videos and post an educated guess of SmackDAT's rating?
a) below 1950
b) 1950-2050
c) 2051-2150
d) above 2150
Multiple choices are allowed (as long as you don't pick them all).
Thanks!

To me, he should not be at the skilled players because he is not from USA.
Other than that he probably is near 2000 rating or a little above that
If those matches were against players he didn't knew he probably would play different...

I don't think thats a 2000 rating player. I'd probably put him at around 1900. He has some strong sides to his game but also a lot of weak areas. He would not fare well in a 2k + tournament here in California.

California is tough.

For an assessment, I think it is better for him to give his ranking and to find a player at that level who plays in both US and UK recently.
I like putting heavy topspin on the ball...

I'd go solid B or on a good day low C. I know the guys who train at smackDAT's club quite well. Also i'm sure SmackDAT will have chance to ask some of his fellow players at the club who are at a much higher level to try and give their assessment of the equipment as well.

Just my two pennies worth..

Hi all,
since I've received more than one application from non-US players and I've no easy way to decide between them, and moreover there's no clear evidence that these players are stronger that the USATT-rated players that applied, I'll stick to the original rules and the USATT Rating.
The rating I'll use is dated Jan 25 and is published on https://www.teamusa.org/USA-Table-Tennis/Ratings/Downloadable-Ratings-List
This is the direct link.

Sorry, but you can still participate in the "lucky testers" category. Actuar90 aready did; SmackDAT would need to choose a number to enter the draw. The others should enter the draw by posting here.

...aaand the winners are...

After having checked on the official USATT Rating of Jan 25, I can announce the selected "skilled players"!
In order of application:
  • patrickhrdlicka
  • NextLevel
  • VictorK
Threshold rating for being selected was "about 2000".

Congratulations to the winners!! Clap
I will send you further instructions on how to claim the Arche blade. In the meantime, please send me a PM with your full address, so that I can forward it to Nexy. This will be used to check that the people claiming the free Arche blades are actually you!

Thanks to the others for participating in the "skilled players" group. If you were not selected, you can still apply as "lucky tester" or if you wish, or as "qualified reviewer", if you think you qualify. Those based in Europe will also have the opportunity to join the European testing session.

PS. Deadline for participating as "qualified reviewer" is in about 12 hours and there are only 4 candidates so far. That reads like a 75% winning chance!
