In May 2008, Pascal Tröger started his career as a sales clerk at Contra Sport GmbH, one of the leading table tennis mail-order businesses in Europe.

It forced players to find alternatives to rubbers that they had used before – task was not as easy as it may sound. – task was not as easy as it may sound. Both of them managed to stay on top of their game, however they were not satisfied with the rubbers that were available on the market. Some time passed until Sebastian Sauer came up with an idea of independently developing and retailing a long-pimple-rubber in 2010. When he told Pascal Tröger about his plans for the venture, they had an epiphany. Combining the experience of both players and their unique set of skills would make it possible to develop an outstanding long-pimple-rubber, which would delight players even after the ban of frictionless-long-pimples.
They started quickly to look for a qualified supplier in order to help them realize this huge project. After a long journey they found a prestigious manufacturer of rubber and plastic items , who they were able to convince to get on board with their concept.
