European-style Chinese rubbers. Very affordable glue effect rubbers easily available off ebay. Plays very well on the BH if you a wristy technique, also good for static blocks. Those who use a European technique on the FH will need to incorporate more wrist and probably a more closed racket to get the most out of this rubber on the FH. Shots also require decent effort, these rubbers work if you do. This rubbers strength I think is the performance to price ratio. Needless to say I don't think this will suit advanced players who are used to expensive European rubbers but for the intermediate player who cannot afford them these are suitable.
