      Xiom Tau

      Hi,

      Has anybody ever heared of the Xiom TAU rubber before? i can only find it in this online catalogue: http://www.xiomtt.com/pdf/XIOM_2012_rubber.pdf
      But i can't even find a picture of it. Since i'm a bit of a xiom fan, i am very curious :P
      Can someone maybe tell me more about it ?

      I believe xiom Tau is discontinued but it's predecessor the Tau 2 is still being manufactured and definitely way better than the original. Tau 2 was an upgrade and everything Tau was not less weight, better qc, performance wise... Overall less dead rubber that the original

      if you want something bouncy but spinny, RZ. If you want a hurricane 3 like rubber that is a bit faster but easier to handle, Tau 2.

      In terms of top-gear spin, H3 BS or Tau2?

      Also, which one gives a lower second bounce in top spin rallies?

      I think their spin is equal, it is just that the Tau II is easier to use. Even if you smash with it, it still can smash effectively. I think the bs h3 has a lower arc after bouncing.
