      FXP gives you the ability to play a wider range of shots and it feels more alive. FXS is good for short game and when you drive or loop the ball, you have to put more effort in to get the output you are looking for. Because FXP has more catapult, it makes it so you can have a much wider range of offensive shots rather than all or nothing.
      I will consider your suggestion .. but I will take long time to change my rubbers do you think the fxp will serve me as I improve on bh more than fxs ?

      Personally, I could use FXP on both sides and be fine. If you look at my post above, Emmanuel Lebesson won the 2016 European Championships with FXP on both sides. If someone who is a top pro can use it, I have a feeling, anyone of the members on this forum would be fine with it.

      Ultimately power shots are about technique and the power you put into your shots. Table Tennis is 99% technique and mental skills and 2% equipment.

      I have a friend who is a pro tennis player (not table tennis). In table tennis, he is a pretty high level amateur. He uses Stiga Allround Classic blade (very slow) and Yasaka Mark V rubbers (pretty darn slow). Because his shots have so much power, he can still hit harder than most TT pros I know. Why is he not as good at TT as they are? His reading and understanding of spin and short game. But definitely it is not the power of his loops.

      FXS has a different kind of sponge than FXP. The sponge on FXS is designed not to give as much catapult effect so that it is a little more like Chinese sponge (not exactly but a little). FXP has a sponge that has a lot more catapult.

      That means, to get something out of a loop with FXS you have to work harder. When you do, you are rewarded. With FXP, you can get something out of working softer or working harder.

      I would say that kind of sponge that gives you less catapult is better for a bigger stroke like the FH. And for you, with the FH, you may want the M version if you want the kind of sponge that forces you to work at max output for every FH stroke.

      Whereas, I would not really want that with BH. Especially if you are trying to learn. The sponge with less catapult will limit what you can learn a little more than the sponge with catapult.

      So, no, the difference between the sponge in P and S in the evolution rubbers is NOT the hardness. It is a different kind of sponge.

      Should you get Max thickness? Again, to really answer your questions, I would need to see you play. Feel free to post footage. But if you are wanting and trying to learn to spin the hell out of the ball on topspin shots, it would make sense to use Max. So you can decide how to interpret that.

      In the end, still, in my opinion, for YOU, based on you saying your BH needs work, the most important issue is that the BH rubber starts with F.

      This article gives a decent overview of each rubber in the Evolution series and helps to explain the differences.
