View Full Version : Soft sponge rubber with low catapult

11-01-2019, 08:53 AM
Hello, is there any soft sponged rubber with minimum catapult effect? Or is it even possible - isnt soft rubber = more catapult? But even though I would like to know, if there are any soft rubbers with minimal catapult.

Thank you.

PS. what about M3, FX-P?

Sriver FX. Rather soft, and entirely without catapult.

Almost any chinese soft rubber will do. If you find a soft one, that is..

I always liked Palio CJ8000 Biotech 36-38 degree. And it's $8 USD

If you want to buy soft Chinese rubber wait for 11.11. There will be promo on aliexpress. They are handing out 2$ and 10$ coupons left and right.

Not extremely soft, so doesn't feel mushy. lotss of control.

Yinhe/Galaxy Mercury 2?

What about DHS skyline TG3? I’ve never actually used this rubber but I hear it’s softer than skyline 2 and hurricane 3. In general, I think skyline series are a bit softer too sheets than hurricane simply because they’re thinner.

Those certainly will have little to no catapult.

I guess it just depends on what you consider soft.

Maybe also look into DHS hurricane 3-50 and Skyline 3-60. Both come in a soft or Med/hard version. So 35-37 degrees. Those definitely have low catapult when comparing to any modern tensor.

Basically any non-tensor rubbers, like Mark V.

Xiom Musa 3, but not the China version.
Bit faster than Mark V and Sriver, but with better control.
Very good AR over the table and up to mid distance.
Close to Yasaka Rigan feel.

Galaxy 9000E soft version. Good elasticity with low catapult effect - all round rubber

Or maybe the Sanwei T88 - although it is not very soft, the catapult is very limited and it works for me.
