Vladimir Samsonov Equipment

Blade: Tibhar Fortino Pro

Forehand: Tibhar EVOLUTION MX-P50

Tibhar Evolution MX-P 2.1-2.2 Table Tennis Rubber Ping Pong (Black, 2.1-2.2)
  • This version confers the highest dynamic and thus makes MX-P the fastest rubber of the EVOLUTION rubber family. Thanks to the perfect adjustment of the pimple geometry we managed to produce a rubber with more flexibility conferring to attacking balls extra energy. Thanks to this specificity, MX-P is very well adapted to any player’s game, making no concession in terms of speed and spin.
  • The ball/bat contact time of the MX-P is longer than the reference time, thus conferring much more sensation.
  • EVOLUTION MX-P: chosen by topspin
  • players willing to feel the necessary pressure of their strokes at the table and at half distance.
  • Speed 125, Control 80, Spin 120

Backhand: Tibhar Evolution MX-S
