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...

 Tibhar Nimbus VIP

Before the end of the Olympic Games in Beijing the rubber experts from TIBHAR prepared several new rubber samples for their top players, such as Vladimir Samsonov, to test. In order for Vladi and other top players to make a smooth transition from the era of ‘speed gluing’, to the new future, it was important for any replacement rubber to provide the highest level of capabilities. Imediately after his return from the Olympic Games, Vladi set out to test the sample rubbers. Tests immediately showed that the NIMBUS rubber in combination with a newly designed special hard V.I.P. power sponge proved to be the best choice. Thanks to the collaboration between Samsonov and Tibhar they managed to optimise the very hard sponge and overcome the loss of the glue effect and Nimbus V.I.P. was born. Vladi used the rubber for the first time in the European Championships at St. Petersburg and the success was amazing. During the whole team event he remained unbeaten and in the singles event lost only in the final, taking the silver medal. NIMBUS V.I.P. is now available to you.

 Tibhar Nimbus Review:

Review by Sprite (Publised with permission):

I'm not good at reviewing, so don't expect much. I just got the sheet yesterday and hit using a robot today. Top spin only, like working off of blocking. The sponge is advertised as 47.5 hardness I think. The top sheet is very strong also. As you would imagine this sheet has a powerful rebound and throws the ball out with a lot of energy. Immediately the speed shows itself. This is the fastest of the new generation sheets I have tried. This includes Tenergy 05, Platin, Roxon 450, Express One and Boost TP. Blinding speed when ripping loops or smashing. I don't remember ever using anything faster. On the YEO, Gatien Extra and Clipper the speed of VIP was extreme on each blade. Low throw and thrives on open blade looping. It will accommodate closed angle loops but timing becomes more critical. Closed angle was better on the Extra and Clipper than the YEO. Due to this I am persuaded VIP matches better with soft outer plies. Since I like closed angle looping more time will be spent looking at this aspect. The spin is very strong, I don't need anyone one on the other end to tell me, it is obvious. VIP is suited best for positive top spin play and doesn't need a fast blade to produce tremendous speed.

After some adjustment from TP to VIP the VIP is good for closed angle loops, maybe it needed some break in time. I don't know what it is about it, but that VIP sponge is very good. I can't help but think it is similar to Bryce sponge; high modulus.

Yes, significantly faster than T-05. It is one of the fastest sheets I've ever tried, including speed glued sheets.
