    I got a Bluestorm z1 from topspin tt. I only got it yesterday and haven’t had a proper chance to test it.

    I really don't care about the new colors and my next rubber will be red anyway....but this green color for Tibhar Grass rubber is the perfect combination without doubt!! Really nice

    I think if the blue was the same colour as the sponge it would be better, but it’s certainly different.

    Some colorants incorporated in rubber can affect friction factor. Yes, red green pink will reduce friction as compared to black.

    But will the new colourants (pink, green, blue) have any greater effect than red? In other words, assuming you choose black on one side, then whichever colour you choose for the other side should make no difference as they all suffer the same deficit - is that correct, or is this still an unknown?

    Comparing pink Quantum X to red Quantum X I felt no difference between them, and green R48 plays like red or black R48.
    The variations in production have far greater effects than the colour added.
    My wife has two setups, one of which clearly has a better black rubber and the other has a better red as regards rotation, all of them being R47.

    So in theory or lab tests of otherwise identical rubbers colour might make a difference, in real life it shouldn´t. As, one might add, it should be outside of TT as well.

    PSYCHOLOGIST ADVICE

    Using the varicoloured rubbers will argue you to be much a gaga-child

    I am using Andro Hexer grip green on my backhand now and I can't notice any differences in playing characteristics compared to the red version.
