    Backhand loop rubber

    I have a question because I'm hesitating for my setup for next year...

    I play with Rakza 7 soft in the FH but i'm looking for a new rubber for my BH.

    I hesitate between Rakza 7 soft and Calibra Spin

    In my backhand I like to loop on underspin to open the game or to finish off immediately ...

    I play agressive, mostly on spin with my both sides so it's an important choice.

    What do you guys think?

    well if you like it then get rakza 7 soft for BH, although i prefer rakza 7 as i prefer harder sponge rubbers, rakza 7 soft is nonetheless a good BH rubber, havent tried calibra spin though

    It's best if you use Calibra Sound (soft and immense spin plus that great sound when you hit it). Calibra Spin is a bit springy.
    To improve, we must enjoy the game and above all have fun

    I would NOT recommend Calibra Sound for your backhand Scopnox , i have played with this Calibra Sound and it is not so spin oriented, but i find it VERY springy, a LOT of catapult and speed , very aggressive stuff. Very difficult to push short or other short game. I play in Belgium as a C4 (2e prov Vlaams-Brabant, we zijn 2de dit jaar in onze reeks). Waar speel jij ? Klassement ?

    It is possible to make good spin with it but after a short time the pure grip of the rubber is gone and it becomes a speed deamon imo

    Hmmm interesting Philly... I find it too soft for me which is why I'm using Xom Vega Pro for my BH.

    If you're having trouble opening up on loops then that is a technique thing not a rubber thing. No matter what the rubber as long as the technique is solid you should be able to open up on the underspin serves or pushes. If you need a bit more dwell then softer rubbers will help, but if you can't open up with sriver fx or even with your razka 7 soft you shouldn't be upgrading to the more medium sponge levels of calibra and xiom.

    I played some weeks with Rakza 2.0 mm on my backhand but that was last year and I quickly switched to a cheap, slower rubber (Giant Dragon).
    But I hadn't much time to get used to Rakza and I wanted to be more confident in competition because most of my topspins were too long with Rakzaso I switched.
    Maybe this was because there was a big difference between Rakza and my previous rubber in my BH, Tibhar Rapid Soft 1.8 mm

    try out xiom omega IV elite or europe , elite is a spin machine with very good control and speed . if u like even more speed then try xiom omega iv asia , all omega iv rubbers are very spinny but elite is one of the spinniest tensored rubbers out there , if tenergy is 10/10 in spin then xiom omega iv elite is about 9.5 ! i have tried almost every tensored rubbers out there for my backhand and elite is definetely one of the best and in cheap price . If u like rakza 7 soft , then u will love xiom elite
    I suck real bad so I train to suck less

    The Xiom Vega Pro is the hardest of the lot, and Xiom Vega Europe is the softest of the series
