Hello,

I play with double chinese rubber setup (cpen). I am considering changing backhand rubber. I would like to use this rubber mostly on backhand flick receives and general looping. I mentioned brushing technique because that's what I'm used to do because of current setup. If one of the evo rubbers behaves better in that department that's what I would prefer to get.

So which one would you choose ? Yes, I'm limited to choose one of the two. I can get stiga calibra sound but they don't get much of an attention these days.

Fxp is more of a direct sponge compression type of contact. Elp would be better if you brush

FX-P has a grippier topsheet and softer sponge than EL-P and is comparable to the Tenergy FX series. I personally felt EL-P was better for blocking and FX-P for looping. EL-P felt a little too passive.

and i'm in square one again:D probably I will choose el-p as it's quite a bit cheaper in a place when I'm going to buy that rubber from.

I haven't tried fx-p but used el-p on backhand for a couple of years. It worked perfectly on a Off- allwood blade, but when I changed to a off- 5+2 blade with carbon/kevlar next to the inner ply, I had some problems with it. In those soft/slow topspin hits it gripped the ball very inconsistently. Sometimes it would behave normally as before and sometimes it would throw very high. So it depends on how flexible your blade is. From the description of the fx-p(it should be closer to mx-p, just softer), I don't think it will have the same problem on a stiffer blade.

I'm not surprised, felt the same thing.

Sorry. If it's a quite a bit cheaper, get EL-P, it's by all means a good BH rubber.

I play on 5ply all wood blade (dhs pg3).

Thanks all for your help.
