2008 – NEW TABLE TENNIS REGULATIONS

The International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) bans the use of speed glue on September 1, 2008. Worldwide, all table tennis equipment suppliers are forced to compensate quickly and comprehensively for the disadvantages which arise especially for professional players. TIBHAR designs the SPI-technology (Speed Effect Inside), present in its new rubbers, Nimbus and Sinus. The big problem of speed loss is compensated by a higher catapult effect of the sponge, which is additionally glued under a strong tension with the rubber surface.

This explosive combination reached its temporary technical Zenith with the Nimbus VIP, with which Vladimir already in October became Vice European Champion in St.

Petersburg (Russian Federation). For the TIBHAR legend, this rule change means a departure from a tool that had proved for years loyal services to him: The TIBHAR rapid with which the champion remained for over a year at the top of the world ranking and scored one of his greatest successes, the Vice World Champion title in 1997. Even today, Rapid is yet among the classics of the product range of the company.
