    mizutani jun blade is pretty expensive, but its definitely worth EVERY penny of what you spend. here is one of my favorite looping blades. like the other reviewers, it is similar to the amultart zl carbon. the mizutani is a little more light weight though. it feels less heavy, and also, i think it is like 2 plie wood thinner than amultart. the feel is a little more quick on the mizutani, while the amultrat feels more powerful. there are both equall good for looping. Mizutani i think is a little more comfortable to use at mid court looping because it seems to have more elasticity in the shots. \

    There is always an air of anticipation before a table tennis tournament is about to start; last minute preparations, making sure that everything is in place and that everything is better than the previous year.

    As the final touches are being administered the first players start to arrive. The message is clear, plans have become reality.

    A few days ago, encouraged by reports that she was doing better, I decided to visit Sandra Paovic in Nottwil, Switzerland. I had been guilt-ridden ever since she had her very unfortunate accident, and felt extreme pain and sadness about the outcome of the accident for Sandra. However, Sandra’s spirit and determination coupled with an abundance of positive attitude gives her the fortitude necessary to cope with such a tragedy. This I was told. Then, the outpouring of support and donations coming from the Table Tennis community and the incredible response to the fund-raising campaign held in Croatia with countrywide support raised the necessary funds to allow Sandra the best treatment available in Europe in Nottwil. “I could not believe that all these people were willing to support me, it’s really incredible”.
    With these words you can see the sparkle in Sandra’s eyes and the sense of comfort knowing that her own country has provided the lion share of the funds needed for her treatment, and knowing that the community she chose, and in which she excels, the table tennis community is fully behind her.
    “Did it make you feel good and lift your spirits knowing that players and compatriots are so supportive?” I asked innocently.
    “I really could not believe all the support I got financially and all the support and goodwill I got. I received a beautiful card from the Hong Kong team. I could not believe it. We rarely spoke to each other before. But it is so touching that they think of me. My attitude has changed, I know that all these players are just like me, and sometimes it’s just a question of language that makes our communication difficult. But now I know we are all the same, and I really thank all the players for their donations. It is unbelievable.” She stresses with a lot of enthusiasm.

    A defensive player has to be patient; that is an essential quality; it is a quality that Japan’s Koji Matsushita undoubtedly possessed during his long and illustrious career which came to a conclusion earlier in the year at the Japanese National Championships.

    i use this rubber a very long time before speed glue is not allowed for my backhand side. it is still one of my all time favorite backhand rubbers. it is great for players like i was who do not have very good back hand loops and are not confident with their backhand. it is very good with smash, psuhing, blocking, drivnig, counterdriving, etc. the feel on this rubber for backhand is much better than other rubbers.

    tenergy 64 is a little feel like tenergy 05, but after you play with it for a long time there are some fundamental differences. overall, tenergy 64 is more of a control rubber than tenergy 05. the speed feel is a little different. tenergy 05 speed is very powerful feeling, while tenergy 64 is very quick and swift feel. it seems to stay in teh sponge of tenergy 64 a little more. there is more spin on 64 as well. the sponge holds the ball in longer. the control is good. it is easier to block with 64 and keep the balls on the table. it is very suitable with any blade and playing style.

    in my opinion, tenergy 05 is the best looping rubber to have. i like using this on amultart and mizutani blades. it is very good characteristic to loop on your forehand. it is very fast, as fast as speed glued rubbers. the topsheet is not very tacky, so it does no have max spin, but more than enough to do very deep spinny loops. the angle the ball hits off the rubber is very high, noticeably higher than most other rubbers. this makes tenergy 05 a very good rubber for looping underspin balls, because you can really lift it up and over teh net. it is okay for blocking, a little hard to control if you do not have good feeling.

    amultart is definitely a very good blade, but it is very very pricey. i am not sure if you want to spent 150 dollars on a blade, but i you do, do not worry because you will not be disappointed! it has very good looping characteristics. the speed is not outrageous, but it is more than enough to do very good loops. the control is very good too though. this is one of my favorite blades for blocking because the ball seems to sink into the wood and carbon of this blade, a feelign i like. i found this blade is real good with bryce speed fx and tenergy 64, as over tenergy 05. it is worth trying
