The new weapon for blocking close to the table
How can I be of service to you?
Well I do hold a master degree in killing any topspin by blocking, chop blocking or chopping at long range, be it loaded, with little rotation or a power attack. I specialize in doing this with a lot of spin reversal and just low and short over the net.
Actually during my studies I majored in another subject called ‘control’. Now I can keep in check any stroke with ease. Believe me this turned out to be quite an ordeal but I did it and now have fully mastered it.
You may call me slow, even very slow and I shall subscribe to this. However, if I get bored while blocking and pushing I do lose my temper occasionally, oh boy can I get aggressive then.
Doping? Trust me I don’t need it, actually I even hate it.
I am honest, reliable and durable. Let us shake hands and play together. It will be fun and a pleasure, albeit certainly not for our opponents. A-B-S is distinctively slower than our current Anti-Spin rubbers Gorilla and Grizzly and offers a much better control. On top of that A-B-S produces a very good spin reversal for a highly effective blocking game close to the table.
At the same time A-B-S provides good attacking possibilities through aggressive pushing and lifting, especially on chopped balls.
A-B-S and ANTI SPECIAL come with a new rubber mixture for the topsheet and a new type of sponge. Thus the rubbers come very close to our old frictionless long pimples.
A-B-S is ITTF-homologated since end of 2008 and is available as from now with the following sponge thickness:
The 1.2mm version is the slowest and hence the most effective for short blocking close to the table. The version with 1.5mm sponge is slightly faster and thus a bit more effective for attacking. The 1.8mm version enables both good blocking and most of all attacking.
Disruptive effect: 100
Type: Anti Topspin
