    Near Heilbronn? ;)
    There´s nearly always a good supply of prototypes among old and dented blades in a shop I know, but many of them pre-production samples, so you don´t know what you´re buying.

    That is what I experienced with Dignics 05 when I first tried it. Flat hit (counter) feels hard and quite dull, on tangential hit the rubber becomes activated and supports the stroke.

    Exactly. But when you realize this you´ll know what to choose.

    I think in their new campaign andro have put it exactly right.

    Both rubbers are only different in sponge hardness.

    The softer one (FX) would feel mushier and more forgiving, the harder one gives better quality when the ball is hit precisely.

    Evolution rubbers are straight ESN, sponge and topsheet.

    Good suggestion. It´s a serious, often overlooked rubber.

    With the Rhyzer series, it seems Joola have picked the softest overall set-up. For example, the corresponding GEWO rubbers (Nexxus EL) are...

    This is contrary to my experience. The FO with its fibre instead of carbon and the Hinoki outer veneer feels much softer than an ALC, almost similar to Boll ZLF, quite like an all wood blade. The CO...

    Excellent blade, very good feedback, more spin than Boll ALC.

    If you call that a review ;)

    "Heat" (as in highest setting, close to the rubber) surely ain´t a good idea.

    The lower settings from 10 cm distance for a few seconds are not even close to playing in a very warm hall, where over...

    4, 5 strokes - then straight into topspin vs block, of course not full throttle.

    And as has been said, the actual warmup happens elsewhere before the 2 minutes prior to the match.

    But even that...

    Basically, control of your game. If you entend to mainly play topspin on both wings get rubbers that help you, so that you can enforce your game. Of course you´ll have to accept that you might find...

    Compared to the Mantra rubbers, Calibra Sound is too soft. Calibra Plus, as an older Made In Japan rubber, performs quite well - but I think you´re better off with what you have. Genesis is a...

    1. There are conceptional differences. The Rasanter series for example have a thinner topsheet, which allows for a thicker sponge.
    2. There are generational differences. Early ESN rubbers used to...

    Because this is a matter of behaviour rather than rules.

    True for world class.

    Below that, there are also run of the mill pro rubbers. Still better than what you can buy, but not individualised.

    So if you are really a face of the brand, you should...
