    Posted: 10/10/2007 at 5:09am
Hi all. For those who are not yet aware about this idea, I suggest you to have a look on the previous topic : http://mytabletennis.net/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=13723&PN=1  
 
Kreanga Carbon Legal Modification
 
Tommyzai had a great idea about sending his modified KC to some forum members in order them to have a try. I've added few tips and he agreed.
The basic idea is to make this blade travel around the world and forum members. They will keep it one week or two, test it, dress it with different rubbers and then report back to the forum describing how it performed possibly with photos. I have no idea how long this journey will last but at the end the blade shall return to Tommyzai (possibly with no ding...). The blade will then become the legendary modified KC and will have gained an unestimable value.
I suggest every one interrested to register here giving their pseudo and home country. Maybe we should manage to keep it in one country/continent for a while in order to reduce the postage fee then move it from east to west or viceversa. Tommyzai, it's up to you, to the east or to the west. Since you are from USA, should we start by your country ?
Pls feel free to add any idea in order to improve this game.
 
I'm proud to be applicant n1 : jcdi , country : France.

Because it might be a VERY long thread and I felt it deserved it's own topic.

So has anyone actually tried playing with the sanded KC yet? I suspect a slower, softer blade that won't be much special :S

My worry is : what if by accident someone hits the table and damages the blade ? Or am I worrying too much ?

the blade's already mutilated (from what it was originally). And Tommy should already know what risks he's running if he's willing to have it sent around the world.


I'd like to help on this endeavour of yours tommy, but sadly i'm a holder of the pen.

Oh my, "mutilated!" Well, it's been transformed, but it's not that bad. :-). I understand the risks, but I'm confident things will be okay. I think it will be fun . . . they'll be lots of signitures and this blade will circle the globe. Let's do our best to mail it to the far reaches . . . even New Jersey. LOL.

the sheer fact, that the blade has to be changed/modified to still be legal, is fair enough i think.
besides why not do something special. if everyone just did nothing, then nothing would happen...
 
no pain no gain ( = no risk no fun)

I took a useless blade and turned it into something fun. That's good enough for me. I don't mind if it gets dings and dents and I don't think anyone will steal it. Hey, we're talking about us, right? I expect to get this blade back several months from now with lots of signitures on it, proud that I had this crazy idea. Plus, we'll be chatting about this world traveler along the way. It doesn't matter if it's good or bad . . . it's about the journey. It's money well spent.

Yeah..he is, isn't he? At least Tzai initiated this crazy but do-able undertaking. Whoever accepts this blade or challenge should do the right thing and be responsible to, sort of, take reasonably good care of it when testing/playing it. I'dn't mind to be the last of the lasts to have a go @ it but I already have too many blades to test/play. I'll wait n see....

I'll create a list later tonight and we'll take it from there. Don't worry it's going EVERYWHERE and to anyone who wants a go!!! Please remember, it's an honor thing. The only way this will work is if we are all committed to making this a cool experience.

Five Rules:

1. Sign the blade with a permanent marker.
2. Take a pic to post.
3. Put your favorite rubbers on it and have fun for . . . how about a week?
4. Give us a mini review of your experience with the blade.
5. Do your best to safely get it to the next player. Arrange by PM or Email to get the correct current address and be sure they are in!

Important! You are NOT going to be held responsible if it gets some dings and dents, but if someone breaks the chain and this blade doesn't make a full circle back to me that would be sad. We have an opportunity to do a really cool thing. Let's do it!!! At the end of the journey I'd be happy to sell it cheaply to whoever wants it. If there are more than one we'll do some kind of lottery thing or something.

The list:

1. tommyzai/Santa Barbara, CA USA
2. hookshot/Secret Destination USA played+signed+reviewed
3. masterbuten/Boston MA USA now playing
4. GenomicsKnight/Boston MA USA next
5. wawaicetea123/PA USA
6. T h e N A M/Fort Worth, TX USA
8. micloi/UK
9. jcdi/France
10. der_RenTneR/Germany
11. master-pong/Europe
12. tiehwen/Canada
13. theman/Australia
14. LachlanTan+Coach/Australia
15. gekogark1212/Australia
16. seahorse/Australia
17. jimt/Boston area/USA
18. gene/Kansas, USA


Did I leave anyone out?

Can I fit in to your list as well? I'm in Europe, So I can take it from either Tiehwen, firetack, jcdi or Der_RenTner. I can do a photoshoot with the blade if you like.
Some examples of my 'work' can be seen in the Post pics of your blade topic (or w/e it's called).
