      Rubbers for a beginner penholder?

      Hi people

      I am an attacking RPB player and my backhand is good and spinny. I use cheaper/ lower quality rubbers now and I need a good rubber to start with to advance my game (before choosing specialised and/ or expensive rubbers).

      Someone recommended Butterfly Sriver FX (both sides) to begin with and that I should use my cheap blade?

      What do you guys think?

      Thanks!

      I typically recommend getting a slower blade with xiom vega pro

      I started out with KTL Rapid Speed and KTL Pro XT. Both are not that expensive but a bit more expensive than the DHS PF4 you are using, at least when I compared them on TT11. KTL also has a bunch of other rubbers in the same price range. There's also Palio's AK47 rubbers that might interest you, but I haven't played with them.

      There are a lot of affordable choices out there:
      AK47 yellow version for FH, blue for BH (only $9 each but plays amazing)
      729 Battle II for FH if you want to try tacky rubber the first time
      CJ8000
      etc

      I just got this recently and it has a good feeling. It’s a recommended setup for newbies per other seasoned players.

      Yasaka Ma Lin Extra Offensive Ch.Pen
      DHS Hurricane 3 Neo (FH)
      Donic Acuda Blue P1 (BH)

      I got the lowest thickness for better control for both rubber.
