    Yes, Hinoki has a distinct feeling that can only be felt but hard to describe.

    Definitely not a hitter. I am a power - looper style close to mid distance. I am unable to do far from table.... not a young and super fit man ( close to 50 y/o ).

    10mm hinoki is very very bouncy. I am using Baracuda which half tacky tensor. Control is much better than T05 that I used before. I suggest you giving it a go. Baracuda’s spin is comparable to H3, is light and has decent speed.

    I have used Baracuda before for my BH and FH. On paper it is a suppose to be a spin monster. However, during my first couple of lessons I was using Baracuda on my BH and I struggled with BH opening up. Then my coach said don't use Baracuda, it does not agree with me. Then I tried H3 soft and still it was unsatisfactory. So, 3rd times's the charm right? I used Yasaka Rakza 7 and bingo! It was so much easier for me, and I am sticking with this for a long long time for my BH use. He ( the coach ) also said Rakza 7 is a good BH rubber.

    P/s Of course in my coach's personal opinion, he is dead set on T05. But I told him I am never gonna use such expensive rubber unless I am pro, never at this amateur level.

    P/s/s As for FH rubber, he did blurt out a few names such as G1 + Tenergy + Dignics & MXP in his preferred list. I told him I already have Donic Bluefire M1 already fixed on my blade. Initially he frowned upon M1 because he had used it before personally and did not like it. But anyway I started stroking with him and after the session, he said, ok good. You can keep the M1, seems to work for me. That is why I am sticking with Donic M1.

    NB: M1 is the cheapest ESN Tensor rubber in my regular vendor's inventory so that is a plus point.

    Among his four FH preferred rubbers, G1 is worth a try. Very positive feedback. Not too heavy.

    MXP is way too heavy and not enough dwell time. T and D series are expensive.

    Thanks friend SFF,

    I will keep G1 in my Keep-in-view list. I have a sheet of red G1 glued on my old Butterfly Primorac Allwood blade. I shall peel it off and stick on to this new 10mm Hinoki once I get my delivery. There is a long holiday coming up due to the Chinese Lunar New Year. All the logistics are grinded to a halt. The wait is killing me.

    However, there is this dilemma I am facing, should I put on another M1 on the FH side of this new blade which is working fine for me on my DS90, or should I EJ and try G1 on this set up. Does it matter? Will it play completely different and I need to readjust my stroke?
