    Does humidity have more negative effect on softer rubbers?

    Even with a Sanwei Fextra and max Tenergy 05fx and a full swing my fh feels like treacle and mushy and slow in humid conditions.

    My friend uses a Drinkhall Carbon with 05 both sides and does not seem to suffer from the same problem.

    He tells me hard rubbers do not react as badly in humid conditions?

    What do you guys think about this?

    Harder rubbers are worse than softer rubbers in humid conditions. The reason is the lack of deformation on slower shots.

    Harder rubbers are more prone to humidity and low temperature.

    Softer gripper rubber is better thank hard tacky. They're still affected but playing in a tiny humid to turns h3 into anti spin. I once played a whole league match pushing and chopping because I couldn't get a single rpm on the ball trying to loop or drive. I don't have this issue as much now I use jpesn
