Hello everyone. Just wanted to know how i can upgrade my current setup for my FH which is Donic bluefire JP 01. Having a really hard time playing with the plastic ball. The balls seems to slip on the rubber and i have to use more power when spinning

What blade are you using with the rubbers. What are you using on BH? Is the BH rubber working for you?

I am using Donic Epox Carbotec and for the BH i am using Yasaka Rakza 7. The BH plays better than the FH but still i am getting this slippery feeling with this very tricky ball

Many similar rubbers, like the Bluefire M1, MX-P, MX-S, PRO-GT 47. Rakza 7 and Rakza X and so on that may have a bit more arc and/or grip. I played Tenergy 05 before but stopped with it when I started to play with 40+. Maybe helps you, maybe not.

And what did you start using with the poly ball?

Bluefire M1(fh), Airoc(fh/bh), PRO GT 47(fh), Calibra LT(bh), Airoc Astro(fh/bh) and then I did surgery on my shoulder so short pips in fh and now MX-P in bh. Tenergy kinda ok versus the slip but I had problem doing power with my bad shoulder, why I went preboosted rubbers and the fact that Tenergy lost some of the advantage it before had while using the old ball (just my own opinion).

I think Inkognito's post on things that might work is pretty good. I do like MX-P, but there are other rubbers that would be good too.

Victas V>01 Stiff works pretty well with the poly ball too. I haven't tried the newer Victas 15 yet but it might be good as well.

It's natural that you need more power for plastic balls as they're slower and less reactive to spin. As for the "designed for poly ball", it's all just marketing BS. We've seen plenty of "designed for poly ball" rubbers and blade and i've yet to found an unboosted rubber spinnier than Tenergy 05 and most pros are still using the same ALC blades timo boll used in the 90s
