View Full Version : Warning! Weird rubber! Tibhar Grip-S (max with orange sponge)

I switched my forehand rubber from DHS H3 Neo to Tibhar Grip-S (max with orange sponge), and I observed that this rubber have abnormal behaviour in terms of ball contact. I have difficulty in controlling this rubber. If you hit flat or smash the ball runs too slow. If you topspin in forward motion the ball is like bryce speed which is super fast and very low with minimal arc. If you loop, the ball is also too slow. If you block, the ball bounces high. My confusion in this rubber is that it does not follow the characteristic of a low or high throw rubber making it difficult to control in all aspects.

I am an allround-attacker player. Do I have to get rid of this rubber or just stay with it?

Anybody tried this one? Thanks

Your Grip-S is not legit as the sponge comes only in black color.

That would be why your rubber behaves erratically though what you described about your Grip-S is typical of Chinese rubbers.
