    BH rubber for RPB

    I've been playing penhold for a long time. In the last two years I have played TG3-60 on my BH with H3 41 on FH. I have two blades - Dynasty carbon (main) and Ovtcharov true carbon (backup).

    I am a FH oriented player. I play a lot of mid distance FH loop. I play block and chop with my BH.

    I really love the consistency of TG3. The tacky top sheet helps the grip on the BH side.

    I have experienced wrist pain recently because, TG3 is not a light rubber.

    In order to improve the weight balance, I've thought about short pips. I've read that TSP Spinpips Red is very similar to inverted with a lighter weight. Other options like Spectol, Spectol Speed, Spectol soft etc. I am looking for a 1.8 short pip that plays very similar to inverted, insensitive to spin and is consistent.

    Thank you

    BH rubber for RPB

    Sorry to hear that about your wrist! I hope for a speedy recovery.

    I, too, come from using S3-60 (and tg2) on the BH for RPB but my coach recently got me off of it wanting me to try a tensor (he wanted T05 or T64), so I tried a sheet of G1. I can’t say it’s much lighter than 360, but it is definitely a few grams lighter.

    Additionally, because of catapult (which is much more vs. S360), I noticed my consistently sore wrists have subsided.

    The action needed for attack is much smaller vs. with Chinese rubbers and that’s helped me a lot for defense and offense tbh. G1 is still spinny enough for my game and style.

    I totally understand your decision to switch to SP, and I would consider the same if my wrist pain got bad enough. Hope you get through it and can continue to play!

    Thanks for your reply. T64 is a very good BH rubber. But it's expensive and my fingers tend to slide on its smooth surface.

    I tried Spectol 1.5mm. It reduced my racket's weight significantly and my fingers grip much better. So I just wonder if Spinpips or other TSP short pips work well.

    Try sponges that are thinner and softer. They will reduce the weight for you.

    I have read a lot today. I am considering Spinpip red. But not sure the difference between Red and 21.

    Yeah I am thinking about it. A light weight will help me to recover faster during power loop.

    After 5 years with rakza 7 that I thought was the perfect BH rubber, now I am playing with Victas V15 Extra and very happy with it, it does everything well, from spinny open loop to blocking
    (I use DHS Hurricane King 3 CPen)

    I recently switched to T64 and it’s a pretty damn good rubber for blocking!

    I agree with you about it being slippery though.

    I’m still trying to control the speed for attacking.

    I made my own RPB rubber by buying cheap HRS sponge 1.5mm and LKT Pro XP top sheet and gluing them together. I don't usually play c-pen but
    I have posted video of me playing c-pen where I use rpb a lot.
