      Backhand rubber change to Skyline

      How's it going everyone? My backhand rubber is deteriorating and I am planning to switch to DHS Skyline 3 NEO Provincial. I was using Skyline prior to Hurricane on my forehand and I was very comfortable with it. I am not sure how effective a Backhand rubber, Skyline is, but I am thinking of giving it a try.........regardless of being aware of the fact that a tensor rubber is generally preferred for RPB. I really want to know your perspective on this and whether" this is a stupid decision " ?

      Skyline 3-60 is quite good on backhand.

      Why not something like Stiga Mantra S or Xiom Musa 3 in the bh because using Chinese rubbers in the backhand demand a better brushing technique.

      You can hit though h3 and still get spin with the pace... it is all in the impact. A lot of players use it for brush OK, then suck royal rox on other strokes requiring direct impact with more power.

      Thanks all for your valuable inputs. From reading what all of you have to say on this, I am probably going to drop the Skyline 3 idea and will probably go for a medium hard Skyline 3-60 or a medium soft Musa 3. A friend of mine suggested Sriver but I am not sure how drastic a change it will be from my current rubber, Bryce Speed.

      Can confirm Skyline 3-60 is great, although it lacks power if you smash or like to end points quickly with the backhand. Other that, it has nice touch and is stable/dependable for driving.

      Let us know if you enjoy the Skyline 3-60. I am thinking of trying it out myself.

      Edit: Does anyone know how this rubber compares to Xu Xin's backhand rubber? Also, are there any commercial/provincial version of Xu Xin's backhand rubber for sale to the public?

      I bought gold arc 5 recently just to try it out and I must say it's actually an excellent BH rubbers or rubber for beginner in general.

      Haven't tried it but looks great. Ma long was also using a h3 20 sponge at 38 degree I think. You can sometimes find these as well.

      Apologies for being so late in replying and thanks everyone for sharing your thoughts. I have decided to renew H3 neo and boost it a little. For the BH, I am bent upon getting 3-60, but will have to continue using Bryce speed for a couple of months now. My sister who lives in HK, will be traveling to China, and she says she knows someone who can get her the actual provincial versions of the rubbers. National ones that you usually obtain from agents/stores, are boosted provincial topsheets with a dyed sponge. Not going to risk buying a national version for a premium price. Eagerly waiting for my sister to come home with those rubbers in approx 2 months.

      Apologies for being so late in replying. Looks like you have gone for 3-60 as well. I have some time before I receive mine, can't wait to feel the difference. I would really like your thoughts on using 3-60, now that you have tried it out yourself. And how it feels when compared to your previous rubber, and how 3-60 has changed your game. Thanks in advance, mate.
      Also, I thought Xu Xin uses a tenergy or a stiga rubber on his BH. I believe you have changed your blade to 301. If you don't mind, i would request you to share your experience with us, as I have been pondering about changing my blade for quite a while now.

      cheers.
