The speed glue ban is imminent. But table tennis players are desperate to keep
its characteristic speed. Now there is hope! Yasaka PRYDE comes with POWER

rubber nor other tension rubbers can. You feel the powerful speed and you'll
recognise the sound. And you don't need to bother with speed gluing any more.
