      3.00 Skyline 3 TG Neo
      • Loop
      • Spin
      • Flip
      • Block
      • Receive
      I used the Skyline 3 TG Neo primarly on my forehand side.Since I use a bigger arm motion with a good acceleration,the spin I could generate,especially on loop,was great. The problem about that is that you have do develop a really good speed and resistance to do this big movement multiple time during a match and if you don't train properly during the week this rubber is just not worth.
      Even though the spin was good,the forehand was lacking in speed and for me was just too hard to flip the ball since the tacky rubber needs a different tecnique to be used properly.
      Really sensitive to spin,if you have a good understanding of your opponent,the short game is good.
      This is just my opinion that comes from 3 months of playing with the Skyline TG3 Neo unboosted, of course if you have a different tecnique you could find the best rubber of your life and disagree on everything i said. Since it's worth its price i suggest you to give it a try.

      3.00 729
      • Spin on loop
      • attack control
      • Cheap
      • Passive play
      • spin sensitive
      I tried this really cheap rubber after playing for several months with tenergy 05 and aurus sound. The big difference with other rubbers is tackiness and you have to adapt your game,it just change your style completely.
      Tried both on forehand and backhand.Even though they are really slow(a lot of players use to boost them),i was impressed on how much spin i could generate,but it's required a really fast and strong movement,maybe too much efforts are required for a match.
      I was really satisfied by the spin and control that the 729 was providing during the loop phase.
      What i found unpleasant was the control on block(especially on the backhand side),the 729 is really sensitive to opponent spin and at the same time really slow,so it was hard for me to find the right blade angle to play this specic shot.
      The second negative aspect was the flip...i find really easy to do that with european rubbers(Aurus Sound,Tenergy05,Xiom Omega ecc...), but flicking with a chinese rubber was just too hard.

      I don't think i will buy this rubber again,my playing style just suffers too much the tackiness of the rubber. If you share my perspective and you need a cheap rubber i suggest you to go more on a soft rubber like Palio Biotech or Dawei 2008 xp.

      5.00 Butterly Primorac
      • low cost
      • all round
      • good quality
      I switched to this Butterfly Primorac after playing for some months with a Xiom Strato(composite).
      I prefer the pure wood blade and for the amateur player who doesn't want to spend billions for playing table tennis,this is the optimal blade.
      -An all round blade that can be easily used for every style,but i think it fits more the offensive player who accepts to renounce a little bit speed for more control.
      I paid my Primorac 35 euros,and for this price it's just perfect.

      4.00 Tibhar Aurus Sound
      • Good control
      • not cheap
      I think this rubber perfectly suit the all round player which demands high control.
      I used the tibhar aurus sound right after replacing my Tenergy 05 and what i noticed is that:
      -it's a forgiving rubber,so it's good for the amatorial player who is approacing to this sport,which is learning the different effects of this sport and doesn't want to get an early demotivation.
      -Low throw:i'm comparing this rubber to my old Tenergy,i found that is a little bit hard to grab the ball and spin it properly,i think it requires some adjustments to the tecnique,but,on the other side,the low throw could even be an advantage.
      - This is a very good rubber but,for my offensive style,i demand more spin and more speed.If you see that during your game,you misread too much or your shots just fly against the other side of the world,this is definetely for you.But if you are looking for something similar to Tenergys,for 35 euros you can find other good rubbers.
