    Another option is to change the rubber to something with better control/less sensitive to incoming spin. Probably cheaper in the long run than getting a different blade.

    Alternatively, you can join the dark side and push block with OX LP and other "junk" rubbers or have a more tactical, less offensive/power oriented style of play. You'd still be able to win at the...
