    One thing I found is to try and concentrate on one stroke, as you said about the BH flick/ Bh v under spin opener etc, it’s not only about the stroke mechanics.
    Movement, placement , tempo, the...

    Hi Yogi, good to see you posting again!! Hope all is well.
    I agree, D09C is slower, but it has a strong catapult effect, still needs to be controlled!!

    TE is similar in speed to Loki Arthur Europe / Asia, the Arthur Diamond Europe is a non tacky rubber, spin is ok but not the highest, faster and fairly bouncy, probably better off with the Donic...

    Hi,
    Rakza Z has a high throw, so shouldn't be an issue to lift backspin with BH flick or BH loop (when behind the table). Not sure what blade you are going to use but Rakza Z can be pretty fast and...

    H8-80 unboosted 37 degree BH and 38 degree FH, compared to a tensor they are pretty dead feeling but nothing like how a 40 or 41 degree H3 (unboosted) would feel !!!!

    Am I right in thinking that the main reason for a tensor on BH is for speed, because it makes up somewhat for the general lack of strength of a players BH compared to what they can produce on the FH...

    Sure if an individual is ‘lazy’ doesn’t train or have regular coaching then the bouncy grippy type rubbers can seem easier to play with, give good spin and speed etc

    Tau2, as mocker88 said is definitely more bouncy, the sheets I have tried have retained tack very well.

    Hi KT,

    I felt the same when I was younger, At first from beginner level, you can improve quite quickly (over a year, playing and being coached 2 or 3 times a week) but only in a sort of basic way....

    I always took off the protective film.
    with H3Neo it comes with a layer of booster or glue on the sponge. Some advise to remove it before boosting others leave it on and boost on top.

    There’s one ‘scientific’ paper (I’ve seen) regarding speed / spin ratios of ESN bouncy/grippy and Chinese type tacky rubbers. It’s available to find on the ITTF website.
    This basically showed that...

    When I tried T05 and R53 I thought generally that the R53 felt ‘softer’ than T05, I would say the rubber top sheet of R53 felt softer than that of T05.
