      Rakza 7 soft is used by many for exactly this.

      My vote is for Rakza 7 2.0mm. It is good for blocking, looping backspin balls and has good control. I have recently changed to Fastarc G1 because I like the added speed it gives me.
      I have only been playing for about a year, so please take that into consideration when considering any advice I try to give you. Thanks.

      Would you say FAG1 is faster than R7? I sort of had hoped it is not.

      Thanks for the responses guys. Think i may go with Rakza 7 then. Can i ask why you would suggest a 2.0 thickness than a max (2.2) coming from a 05fx 2.1. Also would the Rakza 7 rubber be good on the Timo Boll Spirit as a backup cheers again

      Can’t speak for others, but R7 is harder and more energetic than T05fx, with plenty of power at 2.0 already not ever to bottom out. Unless maybe at the highest level.

      I'd never buy tenergy when it's that expensive. Cheaper options exist that do as well as tenergy. Maybe it wasn't the case 5 or 6 years ago, but now, too many products exist which can rival tenergy and easily outperform tenergy with more lifetime. I suggest you to try donic products and see what ends up happening.

      BH for Timo Boll ALC

      I wouldn’t know rubbers that rival/outperform tenergy ánd are more durable at a lower pricepoint.

      Vega Pro comes close to, but does not eclipse, T05, and lasts well. In some aspects MX-P outperforms T05 — for a couple of hours. Rozena comes close, but not at the extreme ends of the scales of speed & spin, and is durable as long as you’re cautious/lucky. Something similar goes for the Fastarc family, the Nanoflexes, the Rasanters, Bluestorms etc.

      The Gewo Nexxuses come to mind, but haven’t proved their durability. Yet.

      Donic bluestorm is definitely a good choice. Even if it is less durable, it's at the same spin and speed of tenergy and you pay half price. As far as I know, bluestorm can play for 6 months, but even if less, you could change it once in every 3 or 4 months and get more utility out of it than you get out of tenergy

      Yes, I feel it is a little bit faster than R7, especially when the R7 is 2.0.

      I play mostly close to the table, so the R7 in 2.0 worked better for me than the R7 Max. The R7 Max had a tendency to go long and it just did not seem to work for me on my Viscaria.

      Maybe rakza x soft is both faster and spinnier than 7?
      Also, if rakza 7 max is too fast for you, you might want to adjust instead of decreasing the thickness. Max thickness is always the best unless you wanna boost your rubber.

      I tested Tenergy 05 max, Fastarc G1 max and R7 max and R7 2.0. For what ever reason I liked the R7 max the least out of all 4. Not only did the ball go long, but it was overall less consistent and I was less confident with it. Anyway, I switched out the R7 for Fastarc G1 on my backhand because I like the increase in speed.

      Well, I certainly prefer playing one or two notches under max, and in my experience there's no single best solution for all playing styles and all personal preferences.

      Yes, for Werner Schlager, Ma Long, Zhang Jike, Wang Liqin, Kong Linghui, Timo Boll, Vladimir Samsonov max thickness is probably optimal (but I'm not even sure of all of them). Maybe it's not for Matthias Falck, Mima Ito, Gionis Panagiotis, Ruwen Filus, Oh Sang Eun, Tomokazu Harimoto (at this point), and certainly not for Evgueni Chtchetinine.

      And not for me. I'm a mix of both-wing looping and direct over-the-table play, and at some point in rallies (4th, 5th ball...) a more direct hit, through the sponge and engaging the full power of the blade, is likely. All that sponge just gets in the way of that power. Spinning's nice, but it's not everything. I play with Rozena (max) now, but I miss a bit of directness on my BH with it and will replace it with FAG1 at 1.8mm in a couple of weeks, for this reason.

      Thanks for the replies. I have always used max thickness but may consider playing with a 2.0 R7. I play mid distance from the table but am worried if it will be quick ebough on a Boll Spirit and Boll ALC.

      What type of shots are you most concerned about?
