      Dignics 05 1.9 or 2.1?

      Hi,
      I am looking to buy Dignics 05 for BH for Viscaria, but not sure if I should get 1.9 or 2.1. I don't like too hard of a feeling, but want to make sure I have enough control. I have slightly faster rubber on viscaria right now, but I tried 1.9 today on Jike Super ZLC, which is a slightly faster blade, and 1.9 was good close to the table, but barely enough away.

      Thoughts on the thickness?

      Depends on your level and control. A 1.9mm dignicscan still go fast at middle distance.

      Just curiosity, should you really be using such a rubber if you still worry about control?

      Anything can be controlled with a bit of getting used to. But whether Dignics will allow him to do anything he can't with the Gewo, that's debatable.

      The reason I worry about control is not because I can't handle Dignics, I've played with it on different blades, its very controllable, but because I like certain feel of a rubber on my BH and on my FH. So maybe "control" is not the right word.
      For example, I do not like T05 1.9 on my BH (prefer 2.1), but I like it on my FH. Today I tried 1.9 Dignics 05 on a different blade, but the blade itself is more stiff and reactive than my Viscaria, and rubber 1.9 felt fairly soft, so I am not sure how it would fit Viscaria. Plus Dignics 05has way more control than T05.
      Level wise I don't have an issue handling T05 or Dignics05, but i am roughly 1700 US, and I don't think I NEED it for my level. However, I have some gift cards to burn, so I've decided to try it.

      So I got black and red Dignics 05 2.1.
      Honestly, so far (3 hrs), rubber is a breeze to control.
      Rubber is pretty fast, but short game is easy. Its fairly direct, but gives a lot of spin. Lifting backspin is effortless.
      BH it plays simply amazing since I hit it for the 1st time.
      FH will take me a little time to adjust on loops because I was playing with chines rubber for a while, but it was good as well, just a bit more difficult to powerloop because of a different throw angle.

      I know sometimes when you play 1st time with new rubber it seems amazing and then you start seeing problems, so maybe will write a short update in a week.

      By the way, somebody made a comment about Gewo, and while Gewo is still very good, Dignics is much easier to control in my opinion.

      I fully agree each rubber feels different on different blades ...
      and i have one blade which is not good in feel with dignics but perfectly fits with Cornilleau Target Pro GT-H47 and opposite on second blade where dignics feels perfect and Cornilleau not . .

      Currently I play with Dignics 1.9 on the BH of my Hallmark Balsa Carbon and I am most impressed by it's control

      I've tried 1.9 and liked it as well. Don't see much difference in control between 1.9 and 2.1 though. I was worried that 2.1 is going to be too much, but its great!
