      Fastarc G-1, Tenergy 05 or Rozena for me BH

      Hello, would you be so kind to give me your advice, I currently use Hurricane Long 5 with Hurricane neo 3 in the backhand, the blade is perfect, but I want to change the HN3 for Fastarc, Tenergy 05 or Rozena. My game is very offensive especially Forehand, almost I do not block, my backhand is well developed, my question is the following, which of the 3 rubbers will give me more control and effect? Speed ​​is not necessary since the blade is a rocket. Thanks.

      Rozena is soft. You may want to avoid soft sponged rubbers if you are aggressive.

      G1 is a good forehand rubber. Quite hard if you ask me.

      G-1 is a fine rubber. Good choice if you need control and great spin. If you want a slightly softer rubber, its brother, Fastarc C-1 works great.

      Anyone seeing me play in person, whether it is the FH, or the BH... especially the BH, and say my shots are not aggressive need to schedule an eye exam sooner than Mr. Magoo does.

      Soft dynamic or even soft old-school offensive rubbers allow me to be EVEN MORE AGGRESSIVE and still land it. ... and I land it with quality.

      Sure, at the PRO level my kind of high quality is meh to them, that is why they want the absolutely fastest thing they can feel and control - they need an extreme level of penetration, pace and spin.

      Just about NONE of us on the forum are on that level... not even DAN.

      I am using a dictionary or textbook definition of aggressive, wich means to be the one initiating attacking in a strong way before the other dude does it.

      ...maybe your definition of aggressive means to simply hit it as hard as possible.

      ... and if dude is discouraged I was "Aggressive" in my comments...

      ... well, Der_Echte has more than once messed up and also stomped on his man thing causing considerable discomfort, deformation, and discoloration.

      the density of fxs sponge don't bottom out easy..... on artificial very soft and fast blade you will bottom out the sponge very easy even with 45 degree rubber.
      My reccomendation is
      mxp/rhyzer 45/48/rasanter 48 or classic Fastarc G1.

      I guess there are exceptions to soft rubbers bottoming out?

      It depends on the rubber.

      Maybe its better said this way.

      yes but he doesnt play with different rubbers and he still thinks that there is no better rubber than evolution. For me his advertisement is the worst part of this forum and I never buy something from nexy.

      Yes, it depends on the rubber. Look at Kreanga ripping backhands with Tenergy 05 FX...

      All tension rubbers bottom out at some point, but not at the same point, there are huge differences..

      PS: Rozena is not really a soft rubber, it's considered medium.

      Hi Saga, how long have you been playing? Are you able to topspin and flip underspin shots with your BH easily including in matches?

      Out of the 3 rubbers you mentioned, Rozena is the least fast and will give you the most control, it still has good spin, it will also be the easier to transition to from H3 Neo.

      Tenergy 05 will have the most effect as in the most spin, it is very dynamic and bouncy, it takes a lot of technique to control well especially in matches, it is the most spin sensitive out of the 3.

      Fastarc G-1 is the hardest and fastest which can make it hard to control at certain levels, it's still very spinny, a bit less sensitive to spin than T05 since it's less bouncy and more linear. C-1 is less hard and fast, still very spinny and good at blocking.

      Based on what you asked I would recommend Rozena or maybe C-1 to you but I also don't know your level so we can't give you accurate advice, just info about these rubbers, hence why I asked you a bunch of questions to get a better idea.

      All Der_Echte was saying is that you can still be very agressive with soft rubbers, look at Kreanga with T05 FX and Lebesson with FX-P for exemple...

      Der has played with many different types of rubbers in the past and is not overtly advertising his brand. I've seen him praise Tenergy and other brands and stores many a times.
