|There are 2 new pips out rubbers coming out the day of the ban from Joola. The following are the descriptions directly translated from German, which is why the English sounds back to front:|
The JOOLA ORCA is somewhat more easily controllable than the Shark. The number of long burls is somewhat smaller and it is thicker. Thus block and strikes are more easily feasible. In particular for the aggressive breakdown play at the table the JOOLA ORCA is suited. Olympia participant and South America master Liu song is the specialist for this play system. “I play the first Schupfball often very fast and aggressively at the table or block also times a ball, before I try with first option Topspin balls themselves into the play to come. For this the JOOLA ORCA is suitable outstanding, there I in particular with the Schupfen still another dangerous flutter effect to obtain can “.
The JOOLA SHARK is a long burl breakdown surface, which has an extremely high number of burls. A good breakdown surface consists of three components: * greatest possible burl length * highest possible number of burls * as thin a burl diameter as possible These three components must be computed in such a way that all rules of the ITTF are kept concerning a burl surface. This succeeded with the JOOLA SHARK almost optimally. Also Amelie Solja, is more than convinced of the JOOLA SHARK: „the JOOLA SHARK is after the prohibition of the smooth long burl surfaces the surface best for me, which one can get at present “.
