please can you tell whitch stiga rubber is closer to tenergy 05 ?

My friend tell me is boost tx is it true ?

Also i am thinking yasaka rakza 7 but i think is too heavy .

I want a rubber with a lot of spin and control and do not as heavy as chinese rubbers.

thank you.

Boosts TP is more like it. I've used it before swapping for Calibra LT. TX is harder. But you can try the new Calibra LT Spin, great control and spin.

i would say an old rubber, the optimium MP, boost this one 2-3layers and it becomes a very good rubber

Yeahhh I was about to suggest that too!! Somehow I forgot to put it instead. Yes, the Optimum is quite close to tenergy..great rubber!

Rakza 7 is not too heavy. Tenergy 05 is heavier

Boost TS plays pretty similar if memory serves me correct. My buddy bought 12 sheets of T05 and Boost TS because he said they were closer in quality when they first came out, the difference being the Stiga seemed to have a higher throw so he slapped it on his BH.

You don't have to boost the rubber buddy....The name happens to be Boost. :) They have Stiga Boost TS/TP/TX

Don't forget most pros choice, the Boost TC ;)

I would suggest the Calibra LT Spin or one of the Hexers as a replacement for Tenergy, nice rubbers ;)

Oh yeah Anders, the TC :)..again, too lazy to think. Ever since I converted to Calibra series, it's kinda difficult for me to look beyond it. They are such good rubbers.

Do you think calibra lt spin is good choice only for backhand and calibra lt for forehand?

or lt spin is good choice for both sides?

on rosewood v blade ?

Not necessarily buddy, LT Spin is well suited for FH too. Just that I like a bit of pace for my FH, that's why I'm using LT Plus, and some others using LT. But if you like high spin loop for your FH, I say go for it. No doubt, it provides better control too.

As your question on rosewood V, I think it should go well if you're looking for looping coz of the dwell time it has. Besides, they're develop using the Calibra series as the controlled rubber.

Yes sir! LT Spin is close to Tenergy 64, and I think it is better. I was using Tenergy64 before I started to play LT Spin on my forehand, and I love it! :)

Azlan is right, it is a rubber for high spin loops, but I disagree that it lacks pase, because it doesn't :P You can do anything with this rubber, it's super ;)


But ofc, nowadays rubbers have to be chosen based on your blade.. Since you can't glue it to the right feel, you've gotta be careful.
But don't worry. I think that the Calibra LT Spin would go well on a Rosewood blade :)

hahaha Anders is quite right, by I meant it's a little slower than LT Plus and LT, but still comparatively quick compared to the other rubbers out there :)

Rakza 7 is not too heavy. Tenergy 05 is heavier

I confirm!

I had tenergy 05 on backhand and changed it to Razka7...It felt so good that I decided to change forehand Haifu whale to razka7 as well!!! so far it's been 2 days and I like it a lot, easier to control and much softer than tenergy 05...

Honestly Adidas P5 is probably the best replacement for Tenergy 05 right now. I didn't feel much of a difference and the little that I did was a positive not a negative (more control, more speed, more spin).
