      Which rubbers for my Timo Boll ALC?

      I decided it's probably time to switch back to my Timo Boll ALC blade.

      In the last months I used only my donic-all-wood-super-old blade, which has awesome control. And it helped me a lot to improve my technique.
      But I start to feel it like it's a bit too slow. I have to push really hard to get extra power. And I get tired soon.

      I tried these rubbers on the TB:

      T05 (max) -> too fast / reactive
      Donic Coppa X2 (max) -> too soft
      Xiom Omega V Asia (max)-> too hard

      I'm an offensive-allround player. I like the control/spin over the speed. I don't like too soft sponge.
      So, which rubbers should I put on?

      Rasanter?
      Stiga?
      Thibar MX / aurus?
      Tenergy not max?

      Nanoflex FT40. Just the ticket for an ultracontrolled spin game.

      Rozena is also very well balanced, for when it’s not just the high end of spin and speed that matters.

      maybe the Xiom Pro versions or the medium sponge for most rubbers. Stiga Mantra M, tibhar El-P. Maybe the genesis rubbers? They aren't too bouncy from what I have read on reviews yet it still has the speed and spin when needed. The Blade should give you a good upgrade on that by itself anyway

      Go with faster rubbers on the wood blade. IF you have already do that, then just buy a faster wood blade. Carbon speed is not for everyone.

      If you ask those questions then ALC blades are probably too fast for you
      Do you got a video of yourself playing?

      Rakza 7? A nice, do-everything, rubber.

      Xiom Vega Pro most definitely.
      Incredible rubber for both forehand and backhand, and is light and very spinny and controlled but not slow. Especially good on backhand.

      My Timo Boll ALC had MX-S 1.9mm both sides and now it has Rakza 7 2.0.
      I could give an opinion but I am not a calibrated machine.
      MX-S seems a little harder but there isn't that much difference in my performance either way.
      I would buy either again if a sale comes up on TableTennis11.

      Someone mentioned Vega Pro. I like Vega Pro, it reminds me a lot of Rakza 7.
      I just haven't ever had Vega Pro on my TB ALC.

      Thanks a lot guys! All your suggestions are really appreciated.

      I thought about take a faster wood blade before go to the carbon, but then I would need to collect info make questions, spend estra money bla bla..I already have a great blade so why dont use it?

      So far I would probably go with Xiom Vega Pro and Nanoflex FT40. Both should cost the same of one Tenergy

      BTW, I will try to make a video while I'm playing so you guys could suggest me even better.

      You'll really enjoy the Vega Pro I believe.
      It's one of those rubbers pretty much everyone loves at first touch and nobody has a negative opinion on. Extremely forgiving too.

      Tibhar Evolution EL-S definitely fits you're criteria.
