    When comparing speed of tacky and non-tacky rubber, apparently tacky rubber is slower. When comparing spin, tacky rubber can generate more spin when dealing with short balls, but non-tacky rubber is able to generate the same or more spin than tacky rubber when hitting hard, the ball is sunk into sponge and wrapped by rubber.

    But the idea of using tacky rubber is based on control. Comparing a ball coming fast with a slow one, they make more differences on non-tacky rubber but less on tacky rubber, then we can say opponents' return affect you more when you are using non-tacky rubber. The one using tacky rubber simply make a full swing to loop without considering more. If someone has problems with using tacky rubber, it will always be not hard enough or not spinning enough. That is why Tango K said "I also personally do feel the ability to execute a longer swing gives me more forgiveness. " Yes, big swing with tacky rubber makes the ball more controllable.

    Are you saying this thread has gone off the rails and some people are posting answers to questions that were never asked. hahahahaha. This is the nature of the EJ virus. It causes people to do things like that on the forum.

    Yes. And then you have to add impact speed and angle to this. If you hit Chinese style with a Tenergy, you'll just get angry if you're used to H3.
