Announcing SolidSlime Quest 3 Table Tennis Adapter v3.0

Hello everyone, I’m thrilled to introduce the latest innovation in table tennis adapters: SolidSlime v3.0 for Quest 3.

One of the most significant updates involves the attachment of the controller to the adapter: we’ve completely eliminated all metal components. Yes, you read that correctly. There are no screws or nuts involved anymore. Once the controller is inserted into the adapter, a simple “bottle cap” mechanism is used to secure the clamp. The entire installation process now takes just a swift 10 seconds, as illustrated in the following steps:

The handle surface now features a wood grain pattern that replicates the texture of a real racket. This not only enhances aesthetics but also reduces slipperiness by 50%. Early testers have reported a significant increase in confidence while swinging the racket.

The thickness of the “blade” part of the adapter has been increased from 10mm to 12mm. This adjustment brings it closer to the thickness of a real-life racket, enhancing the authentic feel. Moreover, it significantly improves structural integrity; as the saying goes, “it’s much harder to bend a box than a plank.”

Additionally, the position of the controller has been adjusted slightly to enhance tracking for large forehand loop swings.
During the design process, there was debate about whether to make this change, considering the already impressive performance of v2 (as seen in Dimitrij Ovtcharov’s footage).
However, after comprehensive testing conducted by a player with over 3100 Elo in ETT, it was concluded that this adjustment could further improve tracking, especially for forehand looping with wide strokes (deep low to high up). Consequently, the change was made.

I extend my heartfelt gratitude to the Eleven Table Tennis community for their invaluable feedback on previous generations of the adapter.
Special thanks go to wasyl00 on Discord. His brilliant ideas and suggestions have played a pivotal role in shaping the current state of the adapter.
