10-19-2010, 01:08 PM

TSP P1r Curl 1.0

10-21-2010, 02:11 AM
Tibhar Genius rubbers recently tried genius sound and just ordered the optimum sound.
We shall see

10-22-2010, 11:41 AM
Yasaka Xtend HS for backhand
Butterfly : Bryce FX for forehand

11-07-2010, 04:55 AM
Bryce with speed glue was the best.

11-07-2010, 12:28 PM
Hard to answer, I would say my present FH rubber Yasaka Rakza 7 soft, I love it! :)

11-07-2010, 12:33 PM
Bryce with speed glue was the best.

So true :D

11-07-2010, 12:58 PM
Yasaka xtend hs. But I'm thinking of switching to the new rubber rakza 7 soft. It feels really good to play with!

11-07-2010, 02:18 PM
I love my Tenergy 05FX. I payed 56.90 Euros for just 1 rubber. They are excellent, just a little bit overpriced tbh.

11-07-2010, 02:29 PM
In the days of glue, probably Mambo for the sound or 729 Transcend SP because it was cheap and came alive with glue. Calibra LT seems to perform as well as anything currently though (including T05).

Kokutaku 007 Tulpe!!!!

Awesome, I've got two Tulpe Blades but I think this is the first time I've heard Tulpe mentioned on a forum before.

My favourite would be Tenergy 05 although I only used for about 3 minutes but it felt great!

11-09-2010, 04:12 PM

Haha, Yes!

I've used 007 Tulpe too, didn't like it though. I felt it hadn't enough spin.

11-10-2010, 11:03 AM
I've got the T-Carbon (the guy who coaches me said it's too fast for me at the moment) and the 703. Both of mine seem really stiff and there's not much flex, but I quite like them for some reason.

11-12-2010, 07:53 AM
Mine would be haifu! whale 2. Perfect combination of power and spin. very tacky as its a chinese rubber however it also has great power and spin for those attacking styles. Very strong and spinny makes for an invincible loop. xD only bad thing is its heavier than jap rubbers and only lasts half the time. quite cheap

11-12-2010, 08:09 PM
Tibhar Speedy Spin was good when you glued the crap out of it, but I would still go with heavily glued Sriver, preferably with dangerous fumes still coming off the blade.

11-12-2010, 08:10 PM
Oops I meant Bryce and somehow typed Sriver.

12-09-2010, 10:39 AM
Butterfly SuperAnti :p

12-09-2010, 11:12 AM
TSP P1r Curl 1.0

Love it. And my Tenergy ;)

12-09-2010, 01:18 PM
Bryce with speed glue was the best.

i agree...i stll still speed glue my bruce speed fx and the results are amazing...other than that,i've played with only 2 different rubbers(donic vario and friendship 729)but ithink butterfly makes the best rubbers

12-10-2010, 01:20 AM
Mark V for me.

12-10-2010, 10:12 PM
I can't think of a better rubber than tenergy 05, its amazing !

12-22-2010, 09:06 PM
sriver + speed glue

04-24-2011, 11:45 PM
Friendship 729 Higher Transcend 2.0 ;)

04-25-2011, 04:45 AM
Tibhar Grass D.TecS !!
Even though its new, it suits my play naturally :D

04-25-2011, 02:48 PM
From the List Its H3 hands down. H3NEO.

04-25-2011, 03:36 PM
Tenergy 05/64. Best rubber in my option

04-25-2011, 05:24 PM
Tenergy05fx all the way..

04-25-2011, 07:03 PM
Tenergy, hurricane, blue whale and calibra :)

04-26-2011, 04:06 PM
Super Sriver for my FH, and Sriver D13 for BH. Way way way back when the balls used to be smaller..

04-26-2011, 04:27 PM
Xiom omega :)

07-07-2011, 09:48 PM
I think Sriver is a legend!
The best old-skool-rubber to me and I voted for it!

But personally I prefer the Friendship 729 with a more flexible sponge (you can compare it to the RITC )

Sriver on FH and Sriver Killer on BH. I love Sriver Killer because my opponents dread and hate it so much. Too bad they don't make them anymore. My 20 year old Killer still works fine!

01-17-2012, 06:00 AM
Forehand H3 and my backhand is between Tenergy O5 and Donic Supersonic S40

by the way there should be a column for forehand and another for backhand Dan...

01-17-2012, 08:24 AM
Hurricane 3 neo provincial!

01-17-2012, 08:48 AM

01-17-2012, 08:53 AM
Well my new favorite are my Xiom Rubbers!
Great and cheap *.* Good for my game and wallet ;D

01-17-2012, 09:05 AM

My favorite rubber is MERCURYⅡ (special WRM ).
[MERCURYⅡ (special WRM ) was made by MILKY WAY ."WRM" is the abbreviated name for "WORLD RUBBER MARKET"WORLD RUBBER MARKET is a japanese taber teniss mail-order sales site. rubber.ocnk.net/]
Because Mercury Ⅱ (Special WRM) looks like speed glue days hurricane 3.;)

Haifu Whale 2 National Version

01-17-2012, 08:11 PM
My favourite was Joola Tango Defence on my backhand - speed glued. Awesome control, lots of spin and because it was 1.2mm sponge it was rock hard and punched/killed like nothing else!

Not quite the same without glue though :(

01-17-2012, 08:44 PM
hrm Tibhar Nimbus Sound :P

I think the same, love the control!

01-18-2012, 12:22 PM
Can only be. Sriver, Bryce, Tenergy, Hurricane Models.

01-18-2012, 01:23 PM
Before it was Joola Express and Butterfly Tenergy... Now it is STIGA Calibra series :P

Oh, and I've just got some new Hexer HD from Andro. Maybe they'll be just as good? ;)

01-18-2012, 02:10 PM
Difficult question having used so many different rubbers in all the years :D
Back in speed-glueing times i really liked the Stiga IUL and later Neos Sound, speedglued really good spin and speed and a nice touch.. Now after the speed glue ban on the backhand i play Tibhar Nimbus, tested one pre-series sample and still stick to this rubber since then. So it's about 4 years now with Nimbus and i still like it :)
On Fh i tried so many rubbers, Nimbus, Sonex JP GOld, Sriver G3, Hexer Powersponge... All of them were quite good but so often durability is the main problem.. Atm I'm using the Hexer Powersponge and have used 4 or 5 of it and it's quite good..

So for an "all time favorite" i probably have to divide into speedglued and none :) With speedglue it would probably be Stiga IUL although it was nearly a bit too soft glued and Bryce with massive glue was really nice, too. Withouth speedglue it probably would be Tibhar Nimbus.

01-18-2012, 11:42 PM
I want to try haifu whale 2 rubbers , I am using Globe 999 chinese national training rubber with speed glue ....
