    Which rubbers for stiga offensive classic?

    Hi!
    I have started playing stiga offensive classic, because I hoped that this at some point could improve my skills. I used to play with butterfly primorac off- with tenergy 05FX and after just 2 weeks of training I noticed a lot of progress. I could more often keep the ball on the table and I had quality in my topspin shots. It's worth to mention that this blade was a bit crack at the handle. It may seems so strange but I think I had a lot of control. I think the parameters have changed to ALL+. It was very flexible and soft. But unfortunately the condition of primorac day after day became bad and had to be repaired
    When I started playing it again, the parameters changed a lot, it became very stiff. After this I started playing Petr Korbel also with tenergy 05FX. I didn't feel control I think It was to fast for me and my skills that I was working on deteriorated again.
    Now I am playing stiga offenisve classic with tenergy05 with one layer of boost. I think this set of rubbers and blade doesn't forgive mistakes. It's really fast and very hard. I have to make really fast move. In exercises it's possible but when I play matches it's become so tough, I think I'm not at this level and blade need to help me a little bit. Can you help me in choosing rubbers for stiga? Or do you now any blades which are all+/off-or similar to primorac, I mean soft and flexible?
    I would like to add that I'm training about 25h a week

    Actually this setup is pretty flexible, Stiga OC is a blade is that off- by today’s standards and not that demanding.

    If you have Problems with that setup then the rubber should be softer, try going for something like Hexer Duro, Vega Intro, Nittaku Factive. Those are all medium hard but quite a bit easier to play with than your Tenergy.

    I'm not a guru, but you should to stop tuning your rubber, then will be easier play with it.

    I agree with this, and since none of the more experienced equipment members have responded yet, it seems counterproductive to boost spring-sponge type rubbers to me? Good luck, and looking forward to more decisive answers!

    A few years ago in my country, Offensive Classic + Donic Baracula on both sides are almost a go-to setup recommended by coaches, I guess due to its forgiveness. Maybe you can try rubbers that has similar characteristics of it.
