      Soft sponge rubber with low catapult

      Hello, is there any soft sponged rubber with minimum catapult effect? Or is it even possible - isnt soft rubber = more catapult? But even though I would like to know, if there are any soft rubbers with minimal catapult.

      Thank you.

      PS. what about M3, FX-P?

      Sriver FX. Rather soft, and entirely without catapult.

      Soft sponge rubber with low catapult

      I always liked Palio CJ8000 Biotech 36-38 degree. And it's $8 USD

      If you want to buy soft Chinese rubber wait for 11.11. There will be promo on aliexpress. They are handing out 2$ and 10$ coupons left and right.

      Yinhe/Galaxy Mercury 2?

      What about DHS skyline TG3? I’ve never actually used this rubber but I hear it’s softer than skyline 2 and hurricane 3. In general, I think skyline series are a bit softer too sheets than hurricane simply because they’re thinner.

      Those certainly will have little to no catapult.

      I guess it just depends on what you consider soft.

      Maybe also look into DHS hurricane 3-50 and Skyline 3-60. Both come in a soft or Med/hard version. So 35-37 degrees. Those definitely have low catapult when comparing to any modern tensor.

      Basically any non-tensor rubbers, like Mark V.

      Xiom Musa 3, but not the China version.
      Bit faster than Mark V and Sriver, but with better control.
      Very good AR over the table and up to mid distance.
      Close to Yasaka Rigan feel.

      Or maybe the Sanwei T88 - although it is not very soft, the catapult is very limited and it works for me.
