    The Kingdom PP at Bras Basah #02-35.

    Where is Sinten? Does it has a greater variety of brands and products?

    Next time, will need to use a big plastic bag to cover the bin, if it is still around

    Noticed most of our strokes had some to no spin. The ball didn't even continue spinning after hitting the net... Back in primary school days, people are doing all sorts of thing to make their rubber really sticky like spraying hair mousse...

    If you are want damn spin, use china rubber. They are damn sticky. European and japenese rubbers are more for loop and smacking.

    The rubber cleaners actually don't increase the passive stickiness of the rubber, but get rids of the dust. So the rubber will have more contact with the ball and hence stronger spin

    It seems there are more Chinese and Japanese rubbers arounds than European. Wanted to get Stiga blade and rubber but hardly any available. Yah, cleaner won't increase stickiness, that's why we primary school kids resorted to hair mousse

    Looking forward to playing with you

    The reason is because china and japanese rubbers are cheaper and more durable than european rubbers.

    When is the next game?

    I will say depends on your feeling of the previous games. I felt weird playing with my old rubber of 16 years in the previous game as the strokes lacked strength and it was difficult to control the ball. It was unsurprising because both the blade and rubber were made in the small-ball era. You will need to decide if this will be a lasting hobby to be worth spending the money on. You know, we have another more expensive hobby
