You seem to be weighing many options, and name good equipment only. I don't know your level.

But whatever you choose, all the stuff you mention enables a good games, without limits. Pick any, stick with it, and grow one with it; put in the hours and you'll no doubt do great.

As for my €.02, I liked the feel of Rasanter R47 but felt it was out of my league. Very fast. The winners I hit with it were outstanding, but were acompanied by swarms of unnecessary errors. It's like that with much equipment: the great points feel wonderful, absolute power and total control, while you're bleeding away the game in the small points. In the end I didn't like that balance of things, and went for slightly more subdued, less explosive equipment. I know and love Tenergy 05 and MX-P but prefer Rozena or Vega Pro for this reason; I'm interested enough to try Fastarc G-1 at some point in the future. YMMV.

R47 is good enough but Rhyzer 48, MXP, Xiom Omega VII Europe are much better. Also add Mantra H

That's a very good comment. Actually, sometimes I wonder if I can move away from Tenergy due to high pricing. But, if you look at the rubber line ups, Donic, Joola, Andro and Xiom are all using the same concept of thicker sponges and thinner topsheets. Yogi, which rubber would you recommend for grippier topsheet. I normally generate spin on serves by thin brush contact. I cannot engage sponge in my serves. I tried Xiom in the past (before moving to Tenergy) and I disliked it just because I couldn't generate spin on the serves.

I’d probably go with a tacky hybrid rubber that’s designed for brushing contact. JOOLA Golden Tango PS, Tibhar K1, Stiga Genesis II, etc...
