Randall Gambler with Thuya Wood
Randall Made Knives
For over 75 years, Randall knives have been the best-known handmade knives in the world. No two Randall Made™ knives are exactly alike, for no jigs or patterns are used in their final construction. Large-scale commercial production with this kind of attention to detail is not feasible and that's why knives of this unique quality are not widely available.
Gary Randall, the present owner, took over from his father, W. D. "Bo" Randall, in the mid 1970's and the shop remains so busy that today it takes over five years to get a knife directly from them. We are one of the few authorized Randall dealers, and try to keep a stock of their knives. If we don't have the knife that you want in stock, we can usually have it for you within 6-7 months, because our orders with Randall are booked years in advance. For anyone wanting to order directly from Randall the price will be lower but the wait will be extremely long.

Magic Weapon: Gambler’s Blade
The Gambler’s Blade has a very simple mechanic. When you hit a creature, roll 3d6 and consult the chart. If the position of your dice matches up with one of the sword’s special features, that effect gets triggered.
There are lots of possibilities from healing to lightning to something akin to Finger of Death. But watch out! This sword might just kill you if you’re not careful.
Here is the likelihood that a given event occurs on each successful hit:
- ~52% chance you get +2 to your damage roll
- ~13% chance you trigger one of the sword’s special features
- ~2% chance you trigger any specific special feature
- ~36% chance nothing special happens

Gambler Equipment Reviews
To begin with I will preface this that I'm only rated 1375 USATT. I've only played one tournament, however, so you can take that as you will. I'm a double winged looper control oriented player. I can chop somewhat as well, but it's not my main playstyle. I've bought an assortment of blades, rubbers, and balls to test for the local club and for what I will personally use myself.
Gambler Blades: Vector Target, Fire Dragon Touch, Wing Wood IM8 Carbon
Vector Target All+ 3 ply wood 2 ply carbon
It's not terribly fast and is great close to mid table. Somewhat on the stiffer side and boy is the Target name is such a terrible name, but it is accurate. The ball absolutely will go where you want it to go. My problem with this blade was that it was a bit too stiff and hard for my liking and it reaches the carbon layer a bit too soon and reaches the high gear too quickly imo. The high gear on this blade is fast, I have trouble seeing this as an All Around blade.
Fire Dragon Touch Off-
The best of the 3 in my opinion. It's a little fast, but you can slow it down when you want to since the carbon layer is closer to the center of the blade the ball doesn't reach the carbon as fast as the vector target and has a much more woodier and softer feel to it which I prefer. It's supposed to be comparable to innerforce ZLC. I have not played with an Innerforce ZLC so I can't directly compare it to that. The blade has good dwell time, flex, and control. The ball has slightly less precision as the Vector Target, which is to be expected since it's more flexy.
Wing Wood IM8 Carbon
Not sure what happened with the R&D here or perhaps it's just personal taste. The feedback on the ball was so muffled compared to any other blade I've used that I couldn't get good feeling with this. Perhaps I did not give it enough chance as I only played with this blade for a day and then dismissed it in favor of the other two blades. The ball flies fine and nothing unpredictable, but the feedback on the blade just isn't there. I suppose this is for players that prefer less feeling in the blade. I did not notice an increase in spin compared to other blades, either.
Gambler Rubbers: Mech Tek Predator, Nines Ultra Tack Gearz Sponge, Burst Gearz Sponge, X3 Diamond Gearz Sponge
Mech Tek Predator
My favorite of the bunch and appears to be Gambler's flagship model. I have this in 1.7mm and it is plenty fast for a very strong top spin game and enough power for putting the ball away. I don't go further than mid distance from the table so I can't comment at that ranges further than that but this is sponge thickness is great for close - mid distance. The topsheet feels harder than the other rubbers from Gambler and I like this. Not tacky either. It is a bit less sensitive to spin than the other sheets as well. High control, great spin, good power when you need it. No real complaints here. Solid rubber at a great price.
Nines Ultra Tack
I was confused with this and still am confused by this rubber. By the name and description it's supposed to be tacky, but it's not. It's not tacky at all, it's just as tacky as the Mech Tech Predator, which is not at all. What is different about this is that the topsheet is a bit softer than the Mech Tech, so you can get a bit more spin with less effort and more compact swings and if your technique is a bit lacking. It's good rubber plays similar to Mech Tek, but just has a softer topsheet. Good product good control, spin, power, etc. Nothing really bad about this either.
Not tacky at all either. For topsheet hardness it's inbetween Nines and Mech Tek. Plays more similar to Nines than Mech Tek. Same overall characteristics has no real weakness does everything good or great.
Slightly less hard of a topsheet than Mech Tek. Plays very similar would be hard to tell apart. X3 Diamond is a bit easier to make more spin with than Mech Tek. IMO this rubber is a winner as well. It was a toss up for me to decide between Mech Tek and this. This rubber is slightly easier to use and I would probably play a bit better with this rubber, but I opted to prefer the harder topsheet. Does everything well and this is a great rubber.
Recap on the Rubbers:
All 4 of these rubbers play identical, no difference in tackiness, just some difference in the topsheet hardness. Honestly the advertising for these rubbers is crazy. There is no difference in tackiness and if there is it's not noticeable to the touch or in play at all. If you're wondering about which to choose all of these play great and have no big difference. And at $14 a sheet they play great. I've been using the Mech Tek for about a month now and it still plays great almost new. High quality and durable for sure.
ABS Ball Testing: Gambler P40+, DHS D40+, and Huichuan from Cole's
Not a whole lot of information out there on direct comparisons so I bought a bunch of each to test.
This is Gambler's seamed ITTF approved ABS construction balls and boy they are awesome. I can tell the quality control is great since each ball plays the exact same. These are durable too, have not had one break except for when someone steps on it. Feels hard and that gives it a nice weighty feel on your racket. I prefer that feel than it being softer. Spins well, hits well, and bounce is predictable exactly what you want in a ball. Very economical pricing as well $0.67 per ball
Yes these are the balls with Ding Ning on them and not the bad balls with Ma Long on the packaging. These balls are awesome as well. Great ball, has lots of powder on them when you get them, the texture is rough compared to Gambler and Huichuan. I can only assume these balls will wear out the rubber topsheets faster. I have bought 72 balls from ttnpp for this test since for some reason they sell it the cheapest by far and some forum members have come to the conclusion that they are factory second balls. I cannot comment on that. The batch I got play great spin well, hits well, and the bounce is also predictable, but not as predictable as Gamblers. I imagine that Gambler balls might have tighter QC on their balls. Durability is great as well. Had these balls the longest for several months and only a few balls broke from hitting. For the price these balls are great $0.56 per ball
Cole normally does not lead me astray, but these balls just do not cut it. They are softer than the other 2 balls making them feel lighter on hit, they spin okay, the ball trajectory is noticeably less predictable than the other 2 and the durability is what hurts me the most. We've broken so many of these balls just from hitting I'm looking forward to when all these balls break so I can just use the DHS and Gambler balls. These are the cheapest balls coming in at $0.45 per ball.
Durability- Gambler >= DHS D40+ >> Huichuan
Hardness- Gambler > DHS D40+ > Huichuan
Pricing- Huichuan > DHS D40+ > Gambler P40+
Predictability/ QC- Gambler > DHS D40+ >> Huichuan
There are some things holding DHS D40+ back, the rumor about ttnpp using factory seconds and the rough texture on the ball's ability to deteriorate rubbers faster. Our club has decided to use the Gambler P40+.
Adhesive Protection Sheets: Donic Protection Foil, Nittaku Adhesive Rubber Protect, and Gambler
Donic Protection Foil
The best of the three. Strong adhesive and doesn't wear out quickly and most durable due to thick plastic
Durable, adhesive is the weakest of the three, and is thin
Not so durable, adhesive is very strong, and is thin. This would be a sure hit if the plastic used was thicker. It's easy to damage these when taking them off your rubber due to the strong adhesive vs the plastic thickness. Add $0.25/$0.50 to the cost and make them thicker, Zeropong. Otherwise I'll have to go with Donic's.
Gambler has come a LONG way from the recreational racket scene they use to be in. These products are high quality, consistent, durable, and perform excellent. Gambler is currently my go to brand for affordable, yet high quality merchandise. I currently use the Fire Dragon Touch with Mech Tek predator rubbers and do not intend to change for a long time. The EJ in me has been satisfied.
