    Not necessarily. If for some reason one sponge has a higher density it would be harder and heavier. Unfortunately, rubbers can vary (slightly) in all sorts of parameters.

    But in the end, personal...

    There is a video somewhere of an interview with Werner Schlager, in my opinion the most "clear-headed" player of his time (and probably all times).

    He was asked whether he changed the rubber...

    Interestingly, beginning with the Chinese players, you would hardly find top players with red rubbers on their FH.

    And someone would "explain" why that is the case, too.

    But that is the normal variation that occurs in the process of manufacturing. For example a 2.0 mm sponge could be 1.91 mm or 2.04 etc., with the weight and the hardness corresponding with the...

    For any serious event - official tournament or professional league - the number would be checked to correspond with the LARC.

    I just thought with the right amount of booster the Chinese rubbers weren´t so dead after all ;-)

    From my experience, MX-P 50 is significantly more difficult to activate. The sponge is of course harder but it also has a different structure (smaller pores).

    If you don´t feel any need to change...

    From my point of view, all the HYBRID rubbers are built to emulate Chinese rubbers - a grippy/sticky surface on a lively sponge as opposed to a dead sponge brought alive by lots of tuning.

    So in...

    The Bluestorm rubbers were already on the market when ANDRO introduced Energy Cell, except for the new PRO and PRO AM.

    Everybody has access to that, ULTRAMAX is just ANDRO´s name for it.

    That is correct.
    Rasanter (R37/R42/R47/R50 and V42/V47) were the first rubbers with this concept.

    With R53 and later R48 and R45 Andro introduced the Energy Cell sponge. Energy Call gives a...
