      1.9 or max on forehand!!

      Everyone seems to love max rubbers even lower level players.
      I use Tenergy 05fx on fh and I seem to have decide I play better with 1.9.

      I seem to get more spin on serve as my action is a little heavy, this helps remove the bounciness of max.
      I can still topspin but its less arcy in general.
      If I have to push it seems much better to return tighter and lower
      Flat hits and drives are much easier and straighter and consistent.
      Float balls cause me less trouble.

      The only benefits I get from max are a bit more ease in looping (not necessarily a good thing)
      Easier to open up v backspin
      Better for blocking hard drives on crap skiddy tables.

      Overall I really think I should use 1.9 Tenergy.

      But everyone seems to love max on fh.

      Am I the fool or the genius? (No answers please)

      Genius. I currently use 1.8mm Fastarc C1 and it lets me feel the ball better.

      Here the same. I’m playing many years with 1.9 Rasant and now two years with Hype XT 40-1.9.
      Maybe I will try now Rasanter R42-2.0 (2.0, didn’t try it since many years) for next season but I’m also in the running for a Nexxus EL 43-1.9 (again)FH rubber.
      Also my BH is since many years 1.9.
      Indeed, combination from bigger control, less speed and less bounce is much easier to play for me.
      When I was much younger I played with 2.1 but in that time I was faster than my own shadow.

      1.9 is good enough for most people nowadays.

      And maybe your Rasanter will be equally thick as the Nexxus at 1,95 mm, so unless you very carefully measure (before purchase, in packaging, bit difficult) all the difference might just be in your head.

      There is a reason why some companies are selling 1,7/1,9/2,1 and elsewhere it´s 1,8/2,0/2,2 - the lines are blurry.

      1.9 is still thick enough for play a very offensive game Max will just give you more. Of course the thinner the rubber the more control you will have. It sounds like 1.9 will suit your better.
