      Oh yeah, I see ;)

      Too many speculative threads on this and another forum kinda put me in "serious" mode.

      Maybe because it is still a thread about Hugo Calderano´s personal equipment, not one about any blade named after him?

      See also Boll, Samsonov, Ovtcharov, Waldner, Persson, Appelgren and many...

      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...

      The rubber is made by ESN in Germany.

      But what the name Victas is doing on a Xiom rubber is a mystery to me.

      Well, in theory it sure does. The blade is an overall product, so changing a component will result in changing the whole thing.

      However, I didn´t think it made a huge difference whenever I did it....

      I´ve taken off grip plates by putting the handle in boiling water several times. So far, nothing unexpected has happened. The glue softened and the handle could be dismantled fairly easily. I even...

      For M3, I would safely suggest FX-P.
      For the M2, it´s a bit more difficult since there is no Evolution rubber with a 42,5 degree sponge. You could try FX-S but I am not sure about the...

      Yes.
      Rasanter has the new "thin topsheet" concept and is more similar to bluestorm in design.

      It might be much simpler, as Timo like many other pros selects his rubbers by weight. In case Black xy gram is not available but red is, the switch will be made.

      But of course it also might be a...

      I guess that sums it up.

      The simple linear relation to speed that blade manufacturers stick to isn´t really a good model.

      I thought the same, but I don´t agree with the solution.

      The very un-bouncy Hurricane gives control, while the not-really-bouncy-either tenergy allows to "blast through".

      That said, the ideal...

      But it is, give or take one degree of sponge hardness. (ESN 47 roughly equals Butterfly 36).

      R37 is a super soft rubber, even softer than t05 fx.

      Make it a habit, don´t think about it.

      And of course the guy in your example who smashes the ball into the net will ONLY have done so because your lucky shot influenced the rally to go that way ;)

      Exactly.
      Same topsheet as high performance MX-P, but way softer sponge.

      I agree.
      And if you want to be able to adjust according to your opponent you would have to be able to play identically well with both setups. That means double the practice time, or you´ll end up...

      I think many players bring something to the table.

      Samsonov plays with pretty much unparalled elegance, also fairness (ultra correct services).

      Ma Long is just so complete.

      Most of them are still under contract, so that would be the norm. And the palettes of the manufacturers are broad, so you´ll normally find something that fits.

      No-one says he did not practice at all.
