เอาข่าวคราวมาฝากกันนะครับ According to noppen-test, the world's highest rated frictionless player Fabian Åkerström played over the weekend using Donic Akkadi on his pips side. Apparently, finding no frictionless replacement rubber suitable for his previous blocking technique, he has now changed his style, playing less at the table, more defense and attacking harder from both sides.
Åkerström is playing for TSG Steinheim in Bundesliga 2 this year. He went 1:1 in a team match against Saarbrücken in the German Cup tournament. I might also add that Sebastian Sauer, Germany's top pip player who plays at the table with Swing Back IF, had two nice wins for his team TTC Altena (also in Bundesliga 2), going 2:1 overall. ------------------------------------ Fabian Akerström tried to change his style because in his opinion there are no rubbers which are effective enough to be effective enough against very good players. Last year with frictionless pimples he sometimes went far away from the table but most balls he played near the table.He has strong topspins on both sides and switches sides very often.Now he tries to play more offensive and not to use the pimples on the table so often. He is a donic player and so he plays Donic Akkadi L2.With this rubber he has the opportunity to make much downspin when he only makes "Schupf-balls".This opinion he would not have with TT-Master but with his rubber it is not easy to block on the table. Amelie Solja still does not know with which material she will go into the next season(information 1 week ago).
