      best budget rubbers

      I'm going to buy some rubbers for my dad but I don't know which ones to buy. He mainly likes to block, push and chop close to the table on the forehand and backhand but also occasionally attacks with the forehand. I would like the rubber to be quite cheap and have good durability with high spin and control. I also don't mind whether I get pips or inverted rubber. Im thinking of going with a 729 Dr Evil for backhand and a 729 fx bluesponge or 729 geospin tacky.

      Maybe also check reviews on Loki rubbers or Palio AK47 variants. They are pretty budget and reviews are good.

      anything below 30~40 are probably non esn. Just go buy dignics and save urself the money. The rubber just last way too long. I've played h3.xiom,bty rubbers. Dignics is by far the best bang for buck. You buy a sheet and play for 6 + month, no rubber can do that with no performance lost.

      729FX would be fine, and I'd wager it lasts a lot longer than Dignics.

      Cheers!

      "Best Budget Rubbers": Given the title of the thread and that the OP mentions two rubbers that cost approximately $12.00 USD, I just have a feeling, Dignics at about $95.00 USD is not quite what the OP was looking for.

      Yeah I was looking for much cheaper options. I was thinking of the Yasaka anti power but I really have no experience with anti rubbers. How will it play. Also I’m really considering Mark V. Would it suit the play style if it had a thin sponge?

      Nothing beats a sheet of a classic anti rubber when it comes to cost / hour. My absolute favorite training partner hasn’t replaced her BTY Super Anti since 1985. It still does the job. She usually gets 1-2 years out of a sheet of Sriver as well. Quality stuff.

      definitely the Xiom Vega X .. or the Yasaka Mark V, depending on the type of player you are
