We (Raakesh and Rohit) are heading to the NJTTC Table Tennis Tournament being held in Westfield, NJ on January 23/24.
This is technically our first NJ tournament, and we are testing our new Butterfly Primorac 2000 Proline with Tackifire C and Tackifire C Soft Rubber
. So far the rackets have really helped us improve our game very much in the past one month since we got the rackets. Tomorrow is the real test for this combination.
We are very confident that we will perform well because of our equipment. We believe, that the most important thing in any sport, is using the right equipment. So after researching a lot of rackets everywhere, we decided to go with the Butterfly Primorac 2000 Proline with Tackifire C and Tackifire C Soft Rubber
. The reason being that it is neither so fast that we won't be able to control the ball, nor too slow to compromise on speed.
We recommend this combination to anyone who is serious about improving your game. For the first day or two, it does appear like you'll never be able to play well again, as it may feel too fast, but 2 days is all it takes, and then you'll start seeing yourself get back in form and play way better than you ever played before.
I'll stop writing now because I would like to come back and share my results and then tell you how happy we are to use these rackets in real competition. Just remember, we were not professional players who have been playing for years, but rather amateurs, who happened to buy a table tennis table for our basement, and then got into the game. So we're not going for the win tomorrow, but just for getting a feel and to see what is our true rating. Once we get that, we will plan our goals for the next month's tournament.
