View Full Version : Would Mark V and Sriver give me more control on my OFF Blade?

Hey guys,

I'm an intermediate player (not rated but I'd put myself somewhere around 1700) and I currently play Andro Hexer+ on both side on my TSP Balsa 6.5 OFF blade.
I really don't feel that I have enough control with my current setup. It's just too fast for me.
Now, I know that the blade is the foundation of your equipment... So I'm wondering if putting Sriver and Mark V rubbers on my current blade would give me the needed control or if I were better off also buying a All-Around blade?

Any info would help.

Thanks in advance and props to you Dan for creating such a great community - keep the Youtube vids coming plz

Hey Chris
Yes, a sriver or mark v would you give more control, especially at short-short because these rubbers are not so dynamic.
But I think the difference between a Hexer+ and a sriver is just to big to play with the mark/sriver immediately better.
You would need a long time to readjust.
Maybe you should go down witht the sponge thickness, for example from 2,1 to 1,9 or from 1,9 to 1,7
I hope you understand me ;)

depends on your level of comforts and level of skill. If control is what you seek, may I suggest switching to a slower blade, with fast rubber, such as mark and sriver. You are welcome.

Yeah! I'm using a allround blade and fast sponge, and that is working for me!
