Hi,
I'm going to assemble my first serious ping pong blade.
As you can see from my equipment, the forehand rubber is missing and i would to ask which rubber do you suggest to me.
I think Skyline is a good rubber for beginners in backhand because of general versatile specs.
I'm a novice penhold player.

Skyline is a poor choice for reverse penhold backhand even for advanced players.
You should keep it for forehand and get a thinner medium hard tensor rubber for you RPB.
Something like Xiom vega pro or Yasaka rakza 7 in 1.8 thickness.

What do you think about blade?

I agree the TG3 is a poor choice for bh. If you like tacky rubber try TG3-60 on bh. Put your existing TG3 on fh instead.

Another choice is Neo H3 on fh. DHS rubbers always go very well with their own blade.

I would also love to hear from you how h301 perform.

Passionate about TT

Hi, why so thin?

RPB is not as powerful or stable as shakehand backhand so penholders usualy dont play rpb far from the table. So with thinner rubber you should have bigger control and should be easier to setup for forehand kill.
Penhold blades usualy have bigger heads and weight easily becomes an issue, thinner rubber on backhand helps there too.

Hi, a DHS goldarc 5 or a 61second Thunder LM ST would be similarly good?
