      I'm thinking yogi_bear might be reading my reply to Bryan thinking I am talking about Stiga DNA Pro...which Pro is just part of the name.

      But I was referring to Joola Rhyzer Pro 45 (or 50)--- here the 'Pro' refers to a different topsheet to Rhyzer 48/43

      Hopefully this talk of Rhyzer doesn't derail the DNA Pro thread

      Getting back to DNA Pro

      So I played last night with DNA Pro H on the Backhand. (FH Rhyzer Pro 50)

      On the BH, I'm liking DNA Pro H. As I mentioned in my post above the DNA H really does well when countering (power vs power)...so off-the-bounce close to table counters feel good and it has very good control in the sense the ball stays on the table. But Rhyzer 50 is more direct and you feel like you can place the ball exactly where you want it. And mid-distance when doing quick wrist countering against strong shots feels nice as well.

      DNA H definitely has more dwell (and perhaps more spin) on the BH compared to Rhyzer 50, but with that comes (small) inconsistencies for normal looping. Meaning if you brush loop (backhand stroke) more like FZD or Ma Long with a slightly open face, that softer topsheet makes some balls have higher arc and land in the middle zone and sometimes they go deep. The rubber has lots of spin but those very fast brush loops (with more open racket face) doesn't have that feeling of 'control' where you can hit a 'coin' on the table consistently...if that makes sense.

      Now if you have more of a Kalinikos Kreanga BH stroke where you close that racket face and brush the heck out of the top of the ball (even with a shorter stroke) this rubber performs GREAT. It has a very grippy topsheet and you can really feel like you can close the face and just whip through the ball. In this aspect of closing the face of the racket to brush, it performs better than Rhyzer 50 on the BH.

      I found Punch shots for DNA H are better than Rhyzer 50 or T05.

      BH flicks are very good since the grippy topsheet really grabs the plastic ball well..I'd say more safety(spin/dwell) with DNA H, whereas Rhyzer 50 is very direct but you need to be more precise. I'd also prefer DNA H for BH flicks vs T05.

      Short game on BH is similar to Rhyzer 50 in the sense on softer shots I don't feel any huge bounce/catapult. It's easy to keep balls short and with that nice topsheet grip you can really push/brush thin and deep and low to opponents corner.

      BH loops against backspin is still an adjustment area. Very easy to do slow spinny open-ups...but I'm still trying to find the sweet spot on doing very aggressive opening BH loops low and deep. My initial feeling is that you need to close the face more and let that grippy topsheet to the work.

      I have been playing with the Pro M rubber on my forehand for a few days now. I usually use Rasanter R47 or MX-P. Pro M seems to be pretty comparable to both of these rubbers. I like it on my forehand. I think its slightly slower than both R47 and MX-P. The grip appears to be about the same, however, the topsheet seems ever so slightly tackier than R47 and MX-P. It really didn't take me long at all to get used to it.

      Talking about the DNA with the Pro name.

      Sorry, one more question:

      Even though there's been only a couple months since DNA's release, does anyone have any idea of how is its durability (if it rips easily and for how much time it remains spinny)?
      In the Stiga website, they say: "The rubber is also optimised for the ABS ball, and thanks to the combination of natural and synthetic rubber, it is considerably more durable than previous generations of table tennis rubbers."
      Does that mean the DNA is more durable than Mantra as well?

      I gave my DNA H to 2 competition players who practice everyday and the rubber has promising durability. The rubbers still has good amount of spin even after a month of continues playing
