    Friendship Bloom Power not smelly alternative

    Hello,
    i am playing a friendship bloom power in black in max on my forehand.
    I like it but it smells, of course not so much as a h3 but still there is smell.

    Are there alternatives that dont smell and are similar?
    I dont care if it is from china, esn, japan but no smell😅

    thank you for your answers

    I never noticed a smell on mine. Maybe leave it out for a night. BTW I think all rubbers smell.

    The more it costs, the better the quality, that the usual rule. A power bloom is so cheap that if you play with it you have to accept that it has problems. If you don’t want smells, don’t get Chinese rubbers. Maybe try ESN rubbers except for Tibhar, Tibhar smells a lot. Butterfly rubbers don’t smell either.

    First of all, Chinese rubbers and rubbers that smell are still normal rubbers.
    Try Butterfly Dignics 09C or Donic Bluegrip. They are both considered tacky. Nittaku makes a version of the H3 that’s better quality and may not smell. Most Chinese tacky rubbers will smell, just keep that in mind.

    Bloom Power is one of the great cheaper rubbers.
    Mine smells "Rubbery" not Fishy.
    Xiom Tau ll plays similar but a bit faster, but not by too much.
    Awesome spin and control as with BP.
    Some smell is there but not strong.
    You can source it reasonably on Aliexpress.
    Both are great rubbers....

    Rakza Z is tacky and doesn't smell. I haven't tried the Extra Hard version but I assume it's the same as the regular one in that regard.

    How many degrees of Bloom Power do you recommend if you use a stiff blade off+
