Table Tennis Tips

A real low and short no-spin serve can give you some easy points in matches, as they are difficult to flip hard, and they require good timing to push hard. Mix it up with a heavy backspin in the same spot. Remember to get it short, the ball should bounce short on your side close to the net...

 729 FX Super Soft

729 FX Super Soft is one of the lightest rubbers you will ever stick on your blade. Thin 729FX  top sheet with soft Reactor sponge gives this rubber a lively bounce that has previously only existed in European and Japanese brands. Also called 729 FX EL, the EL stands for 'Euro Light'.

Characteristics:

  • High speed inverted rubber
  • Extremely light weight
  • Soft Reactor Sponge
  • Profound glue effect
  • ULTRA THIN responsive top sheet
  • Astounding Mechanical spin
  • ITTF/USATT/CTTA approved

Ratings:

  • Speed: 9
  • Spin: 9+++
  • Control: 9++
  • Sponge Hardness Approx 35 (1.5 or 2.0mm)

Comments:

            This rubber has all the good qualities of a mechanical spin rubber, but that is where the similarities stop. The workmanship of this product is excellent, the rubber is lighter with more control than most Japanese and European brands. Reactor is a sponge developed by Friendship for use exclusively with their products. Reactor sponge is rated soft, but it is very springy and consistent. When used with high solvent glue Reactor will have more spin and slightly more speed. The glue life of Speed glued Reactor is notably longer with a more consistent power curve.

 729 FX Super Soft Review:

This was 729's first attempt at creating a Euro rubber.  It's soft, half tacky, and very very light.  It's been criticized for lacking power, but I don't think it seems that slow.  It's a great rubber for control looping, and I frequently recommend it to players making their first step up from a pre-made racket.

This is the first chinese rubber that Ive used that hits like a japanese rubber. It is springy, not sticky at all unlike regular chinese rubber. Very good for looping. But dont expect it to be a speed demon, its fast but not of bryces caliber. Its in the sriver or mark Vs alley. I find it well suited for hard and stiff blades like the tube aluminum.

However, I disagree about FX-EL and serves or underspin. FX-EL has to be mated with a soft blade, and glue is very helpful. With a soft blade, it blossoms. You can spin with it and serve with it like a European rubber. Both I and one of my playing partners were amazed at the difference.

 

However, for off the table looping, the FX-EL on a ALL/DEF blade gives a feel like a slingshot. (It is great fun in practice) If your game is push, touch and hit, that slingshot may just get in the way. Its not really suitable as a defensive rubber  

 

 

The same soft (35-40degree) sponge as used with the 802-40 short pimpled sheets. Works very well with speed glue providing the opportunity to use a tacky Chinese style rubber in the more modern away from the table looping game; this is a modernised equivalent to the harder original. Used on a Tibhar Chila Light. This rubber would suit a hitter and a looper. When used with speed-glue it can be played with over the table for controlled topspinning and hitting, as well as mid-distance looping. Compared to the original, this rubber has a medium-throw angle, rather than a high one, and is considerably lighter. Speed 8, Spin 8, and Control 8, 39g....   tabletennissam
