      Bh rubber replacement

      I want to change my baracuda 1.8 for something that is less reactive to opponents spin, with more controle, lighter and better in pushing.
      I was thinking of Joola maxxx 400 1.8. Is this a good option or are there better alternatives?

      T80/80-FX does a pretty good job in the low spin sensitivity department.....i think its one of the premium choices there are when it comes to backhand since it can literally do anything from hard loops to chops perfectly....

      I am thinking to try that T80 one day, currently using 05FX and 64 and both are great already, but sounds i became more defensive than offensive and i didn't want to go full defense style so not full defensive rubber, but i want to have that rubber as you said that is do anything from hard loops to chops perfectly better than 05/64, and T80 sounds like in between of 05 and 64, but maybe i should look for something much different than Tenergy that is more control and better spin without much speed which is one main character of Tenergy.

      Joola Rhyzm, not Maxxx, is the best rubber I have ever tried in terms of control for all types of strokes. Better than Maxxx in fact.

      It's probably designed for fh though and it feels a lot harder than most common bh rubber, but it's lighter, much less spin sensitive than Bara, and is extremely spinning in pushing. Hardness is also about same. You might want to consider Rhyzm-P instead if u want to play with the poly ball.

      Rhyzm has a couple of softer sponges (375 and 425) that are just as good in terms of control, but slower. I personally would recommend he try Hexer, which is similar to Baracuda, but less spin sensitive.

      I can provide a dozen suggestions, but then you would be tempted to try them all, just like catching Pokemon.

      I use XP 2008 on BH for those reasons, excepty is is HEAVY rubber, but good for control. Soon it will be Demian II+ to tryout for a place on my permanant BH slot.

      Thx ,
      I'm doubting between the 80fx, rhyzm 425 and hexer but I think I'm goig to try the Hexer. It's also available in thinner sponges and not so expensive.

      Question offtopic:
      What are the advantages of playing with a spin sensitive rubber?

      TS, the biggest PLUS of a spin sensitive rubber is that is MUCH easier to generate heavy topspin with a 40-50% power.

      Exactly. In general, spin sensitive rubbers are very good if you read spin well and have an active spin manipulation game because you can overpower and borrow spin much more easily with such rubbers. However, they hurt if you have a passive game and are dealing with heavy spin because the spin will react with the rubber and do it's own thing if you are passive and misread the spin. I prefer spin reactive rubbers once you have advanced spin strokes because they just force you to learn to read spin and to be active in spin manipulation, which I think is the best way to get better quickly, but there are other positions.

      On the flip side, I like my very non-spin reactive BH rubber and can get a boatload of spin from it, but it doesn't matter, as long as my BH rubber is NOT anti, is inverted, not old to become anti, I can spin it up regardless spin reactive, non spin reactive, or tacky/non-tacky.

      At the end of the day, we select equipment we FEEL is appropriate for us and that we like, sometimes it is at the expense of what troubles opponents or like NL is saying, for strategic development.
