    Need help changing FH rubber please!!!!

    Hi everyone,

    I’m currently using Evolution MX-S on FH with Xiom Ignito ply. In my recent tournament I played very poorly with my forehand top spins going long most of the time.

    A senior player recommended me to switch to a slower rubber, can anyone please suggest me one!

    NOTE: I like to open with a slow loop and then do a finish or engage in topspin/counter rallies

    I played very poorly and now I thinking of switching to Mark V or hurricane 3.
    Any help you can provide is highly appreciated.

    You played poorly, and the first thing you think about is changing a rubber?

    How long have you been playing? Is the problem persistent? Any thought on adjusting bat angle and swing speed?

    Usually hitting long means you are not in position to get a quality wing, this helps:

    If you are set on changing equipment, swap out your blade. Ignito is very fast and one of those "high kick" blades. Ok for smashing, but most "loopers" prefer something a little more in the "hold" category.

    Viscaria/Stradivarius is a step down. Korbel/Offensive Classic if you want to go back to basics.

    Blade makes much more difference than rubbers.
