    Tibhar Hybrid K1 European Version

    Tibhar is selling the K1 now in Europe officially (European Version): http://www.tabletennis11.com/other_eng/tibhar-hybrid-k1

    Are there differences between normal K1 and European Version?
    Both have a 50° degree sponge...

    The tackiness seems the same as any other ESN tacky rubber.

    Compared to Joola Golden Tango PS, the Tibhar seemed slightly more flexible when handling the rubber before glueing.
    They both measured exactly the same hardness at 50° Shore O. The Joola would probably be slightly lighter at the same thickness, with 72g for a max compared to 71g for a 2.0mm K1 European version, although there didn't seem to be visually much difference between the thickness of the two.

    They are extremely similar in how they play, especially after a bit of use.

    Looks very interesting. Lucjan Blaszczyk highly recommended this rubber when I saw him last weekend at LYTTC.

    Slightly out of topic but I tried the Chinese version of K1 Hybrid tonight and I find it in between H3 Neo Provincial blue sponge and Stiga Genesis 2 M. Less catapult than the Genesis but more tacky. Amazing for serves but quite spin sensitive on receives (like most tacky rubbers).

    I have tried the K1 pro and it is indeed tacky.

    The rubber T11 is selling isn't the K1 Pro if I understood it correctly?

    T11 is selling the K1 European Version. But there are some other versions of the K1 available (in Asia):
    Tibhar Hybrid K1 50°
    Tibhar Hybrid K1 Plus 52,5°
    Tibhar Hybrid K1 Pro 52 -> I think this is a version with thinner topsheet and thicker sponge (like Aurus Prime)
    Tibhar Hybrid K2 54°

    I've got a couple of sheets of K1 Euro when it was on sale at TT11. The sponge is very firm with tiny pores. Gotta try it tonight.
