      Recommendation backhand rubber

      I m using a heavy blade about 93g. Forehand rubber is g1 n 50g after cutting. I want lighter backhand rubber to keep overall racket weight under 190g. Any recommendation for ESN rubber for backhand with speed n spin about g1 but lighter weight?

      Donic Baracuda. It’s a very nice rubber for the backhand and a lot of Chinese provincial player use it for the bh.

      Baracuda bigslam or f3 bigslam. Go with soft rubbers for weight reduction.

      Alternatively you could get a lighter blade or a thinner sponge. Some online stores like tt11 or princett will accommodate your request for specific weight for a blade or try to get close. You can buy the same blade you have now except a lighter version. Nowaday I ask for 85 gram blades or lighter if possible and tell them not to bother sending a blade if it is 90gm or heavier.

      You don't like to have heavy racket or you don't like the fact that the blade is head heavy? In the second case, have you tried adding weight to the handle?

      My cut sheets of my sig rubbers are 48g for MX-K and 46g for FX-S on a standard sized 157x150 mm round blade.

      Although that is medium to medium heavy, it isn't like one is wirlding an anvil. MX-K is in the medium firm to firm category.

      A rubber like FX-S is right up your alley. 46g if standard blade size would make you under your quota by one gram.

      Yogi is barking up the right tree in that soft sponged modern dynamic rubbers are generally a few grams less weight.

      The two extra soft rubbers he mentioned are especially spinny dynamic rubbers that despite the low rated speed. .. if well struck can still produce a strong power ball

      As a vendor, I would be required to say the customer is always right in choosing this or that... it is a free market thing that sorts everything out over time.

      As an offensive player, I triple laugh at 98 to 99 percent of offensive blades weighing 85 grams or less. There are a few that are playable and still balanced stable enough at that weight, but mighty few. (I use 2 at or below that weight well)

      You can consider new Victas V11 Extra rubber which is %10 ligher than other ESN rubber @ 47.5 deg hardness and will meet your weight requirement.
      Many reviews on Youtube mostly from Japan sites with weight etc.

      at a 47g limit you actually have quite a lot of options. Most last generation ESN rubbers are around that.

      A median variety of Rakza 7 should be there. So would Joola Xplode and Barracuda, both of which would be more similar to the G1 than the Rakza (Joola is a bit faster/more direct). My Hexer HD is 47.6g exact and gives a similar tight topsheet feel to the G1 and even a little faster.

      Some slightly softer rubbers I've tried recently include Xiom Omega 7 pro (~45g cut and boosted), and Vega Asia (~43g at 2.0mm). Both are softer than the G1, but bouncier and well suited for backhands.

      Good resource if you are looking for a particular weight:

      you can make blade and rubber 7 grams lighter , just by reglueing your rubber . glue 5mm up from the end of handle then you can cut a large half moon shape that now sticks out from the end of the blade bat size has not altered . and you have removed a lot of rubber .l have a heavy set up now its 8gms lighter the little gap makes no difference
