    Hi,

    They're both good rubbers, the question is not which is better, it's which rubber is best suited for you? Which might also be another rubber altogether.

    MX-P is faster, bouncier and less controlled, less predictable, more spin sensitive, and easier to make mistakes with.

    Aurus Prime is still fast, but a bit more controlled and linear, more predictable, and a little bit easier to use.

    Both are demanding rubbers for advanced players, not for beginners or low intermediate players.

    They're both very spinny rubbers.

    Technically, MX-P can generate more spin if you are a high level player, but Aurus Prime is easier to generate spin with.

    How long have you been playing? What blade and rubbers are you currently using? Why are you looking to change?

    Propably 5 years. But my coach said that im very good for the amount of years I have played. Im currently using Xiom Offensive S but the name is wrong the speed is actually like Off- and im using Rasanter R47 on both sides 2.0mm. Im feeling that I dont have much power on my shots, I do have a good technique. So thats why.

    Power comes from technique and physique, using your core and legs more.

    R47 is already a powerful rubber, Xiom Offensive S (great blade!) has good power and speed already too. Are you also doing core and legs exercises regularly to increase your power aside from training at the table? Technique and the correct timing of your core, legs and forearm etc. coming together at the same time will also increase your power.

    While you do this, you could also up your R47's to max instead of 2.0mm on the same blade, or use regular MX-P in max (not 50) which won't be too different. Or switch to R48 if you like Rasanter.

    Thank you very much for your advice! Im going to buy mxp on both sides. Im very short 161 Cm or 5 foot 3. Im 14 years old but my coach said I have the control of Vladimir Samsonov! Since then I have been looking at his playing. I will definetly do more training on my legs. THX STILL!!!

    It's good that you have good control, that's one of the most important parts of the game, and one that's hard to learn or teach, since it's very personal. Vladimir Samsonov is a great role model to have, he's an expert of control and the fundamentals, he makes it look so easy although it's a lot harder than it looks. He's a very tall player, so not the fastest to move around the table, but he has good reach and his amazing control and tactics allow him to stay in place, control the pace and counter. Since you're short, your game will be very reliant on footwork and moving quickly around the table, so if you combine this with speed and great control, you will play at a very good level. Along with Samsonov, you should also watch short players like Kalinikos Kreanga and also "The Pocket Rocket" who plays on the TableTennisDaily team videos they post on YouTube.
