Hello Everyone,

I play with Donic Senso v1. I recently bought a Stiga Tour M (max thicknesss = 2.1), I like this rubber but I am having some difficulty to make short spinny serves with it.

Maybe the 1.9 version would help me gain some control... but would that also mean lossing much speed?

Has anyone here tried both Tour M 2.1 and 1.9? Can you please provide some feedback?

Thanks in advance

In general it means you will have lower power with 1,9mm rubbers.. I would rather get a spinnier rubber like Hexer, Bluefire, Rasant or such. The Calibra makes less spin when serving than most other rubbers

I hope this is not too much off topic, and sorry if it is. Is H3 a problem on serving? Some people have said it isn't good with spinny serves. Thanks

I think H3 is one of the best service rubbers considering the Chinese are exceptional deceptive on their serves.

H3 does actually impact a lot of spin on the ball, but I wouldnt recommend it for you if you are allready used to a euro rubber like calibra :)

Yeah I already use a tacky rubber so it'll be an upgrade :) thanks!

Very nice spin and speed.

It's difficult to serve with Tour because of the untacky surface you need to squish the ball into the sponge to generate spin. I've played with both H3 and Bluefire JP and I must say that I was more satisfied with JP's services. H3 Neo was good but had to keep whiping it to keep tackiness because it gathered a lot of dust.

I have no spin issue on my serves with tour M on Innerforce AL.

I think it's important to find the right technique for each rubbers, you can get very good services with tour but like elrigo99 said you maybe need to change the way you hit the ball a bit :)

Innerforce AL is also flexible, soft and have high dwell time and Calibra Tour M shines with those kind of blades. I've passed from T80 to Tour M both BH and FH.
