      Vega Pro alternative?

      I'm thinking of getting a Vega Pro for my backhand but was wondering if there was a cheaper, maybe slightly slower alternative.
      Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

      Well, i just checked the Menereis webshop and guess what : the Xiom Vega Pro at 35,90 € , i think both Dandoy and Menereis are just following the standard advised selling price from Xiom.

      I am more than ever looking for chinese alternatives to the Tensor (ESN) products , that are too expensive (Tibhar= Andro= Donic= Xiom =Joola = ... ?) for what they are.

      I guess I was lucky then. It seems that the glue-effect rubbers will always be priced above €30, since they are most likely more complicated to manufacture than normal rubbers. Together with the fact that they are also less durable, the glue ban really made table tennis more expensive.
