      Rubber for defender?

      Hi, my friend is a defender and wants to be able to topspin on the forehand and backhand to. For example he defends a lot but at the beginning of the rally he tries to open with an attack.

      What are professional defenders using? Are they using Tenergy? perhaps with a thin sponge like 1.7?

      Any help will be good,

      Thanks,

      Pro defenders play mostly LP or SP on the backhand. No one play inverted backhand and is considered a defender.

      I tested the Dr N Leopard(sp) as a backhand rubber for defensive play on my Tibhar Actium.I was very satisfied with it.

      Deal hope,

      Defender able to backhand topspin, modern allrounder? Ouaiche?

      Either way, many defender using tenergies, but,

      I am in the opinion that Tackiness Chop 2 1.5 mm is the easiest chopping inverted rubber on backhand, till now, and

      H3 in thin sponge, mine 1.9 - 2.0 mm, is the best chopping rubber, and also great for brush loop.
