    Hi. Currently using h3 prov & tenergy 05 for the last 5 years. Thinking of changing to /investing in couple of sheets of Dignics 09c I would welcome any thoughts on this set up before I push the button !

    I tried d09c on HL5 for a month or two. I was really looking for it to replace h3 prov but it really didn’t feel at all similar to h3 to me so I went back. It felt mushy but it was easier to play with even compared to boosted h3 prov. Not saying it’s bad or anything just that it felt completely different to me.

    Out of pure curiosity I also tried it on BH and shockingly it felt amazing. Very crisp compared to t05 (which always felt bad on HL5 to me) and the short game is like a hard tacky rubber.

    Obviously performance wise I didn’t play better or worse with any of these changes. It just felt bad on FH and amazing on BH.

    If you want sonething like H3 but with bounce, get the Xiom Tau II or if you want something faster Omega 7 China Ying

    I use the HL5 with D09 and like it. But, I'm coming from non-tacky tensor rubber. Bottom line is that I don't train much since covid so I need the forgiveness of of D09 compared to H3.

    If you are used to H3 then you will probably complain about the high throw angle of D09 and the softer feel. But if you stick with it until you get used to it, then you will be happy long term (IMO).

    I used D09C on FH & BH, has more 'bounce' than H3 because of the spring sponge x. Spin is probably slightly less than H3 Neo Prov but still good.
    the trade mark H3/H3 Neo low forward kick is missing because of the higher throw of D09C.
    Overall, I preferred D09C on the BH.
    I think the best aspect of D09C is the topspin drive attack, looping is still good, but the crispness and control for topspin drive, counter topspin and flatter hitting is really good.
    short game control is better than say T80fx but not as controlled as H3, mainly because the spring sponge x is dulled slightly by the 'slightly tacky' topsheet. but there's still more bounce than H3 Neo

    Can you please compare the Rakza Z EH with the two Xiom Omega China rubbers? If here is unfit then in your thread about those rubbers.

    In the thread
    https://www.tabletennisdaily.com/for...Guang-and-Ying

    you mention you have Rakza Z EH incoming, and in this thread you mention it is good, so I inferred it arrived. But in the thread I didn't find any comparison.

    I don't mean to disturb or add work, no hurry.

    says Equipment matters a lot to scrubs who can't make minor adjustments to their stroke.

    Can't find direct comparison though.

    EDIT:
    Here is yogis post about Dignics 09C https://www.tabletennisdaily.com/for...omparison-Test
    Rakza Z EH is mentioned numerous times.
