More Information About Nittaku Screw One

“Screw One” is an exceptional defensive spongeless table tennis rubber from a famous Japanese brand, “Nittaku.” Like its name, Screw One is arguably one of the best deceptive table tennis rubber in the market. It can screw your opponent around superbly with a wide range of deceptive reversed spins and feint strokes.

It enables you to return your opponent serves well (slightly more comfortable than the Butterfly Feint Long II). Besides, its controllability is still not too bad (slightly worse than Feint Long II). It is also perfect for a drop shot.


In terms of blocking, due to its unique characteristic, you may experience some difficulty if you are not used to this fancy rubber. However, once you master it, this rubber is incredibly excellent for blocking. It offers a relatively short and low ball with potentially unpredictable bouncing directions.

 This rubber produces significantly less power than other ordinary table tennis rubbers with a relatively slower speed due to its power. So it is commonly used for short distance play style.


Given the fact that this is a solid defensive rubber, it is always the best for chopping technique. It allows you to produce a wide range of backspin power from none to an enormous spin with a relatively low ball. It will confuse your opponent well so that you will get points from your rival’s mistakes easily.


The spin reversal ability produces a slightly reversed spin with some deception and variation that will be very difficult for your opponent to handle.

Overall, This is an excellent table tennis rubber for a particular strategic play. It is recommended for patient defensive players who heavily rely on opponent’s mistakes.

More Information About Nittaku Galze

It is a non-tacky offensive table tennis rubber with a reliable performance from Nittaku. It is one of Nittaku’s high-end rubbers with a reasonably high price (approx USD$50–60). The rubber is suitable for the offensive to all-around players (OFF to ALL+), which features exceptional speed, spin, and control, which enables you to cover all attacking strategies.


It performs incredibly powerful and fast even though it is not the fastest one (just slightly slower than Tenergy series).


In terms of spin, although it is not the best for the spin, it still produces a very impressive topspin drive and loop (just slightly behind Nittaku Narucross).


However, its controllability seems to be the best for a very fast and spin rubber (significantly better than Tenergy as well as Narucross EX).

Besides, it is very significant for blocking with a very fast and precise return. High-level table tennis players are recommended to love both speed and spin strategies with a relatively high budget.
