    Disputes about rubbers

    Hey guys,

    Here's a chance for you to settle a little dispute among my colleagues. Silly as it may sound, but it's all in good fun.

    So here goes.
    They were talking about rubbers and 4 came up repeatedly. They're Rakza 7, Tenergy 05, Xiom Sigma Pro and Calibra LT. Now, they want to know which of these rubbers is the most powerful in terms of spin and speed. The blade they have decided it shall be Butterfly Timo ZLC.

    They will then decide on the majority of the favoured answers from the TTD members once in for all, and I may live in peace.

    Opinions and thoughts on the rubbers are most welcome
    To improve, we must enjoy the game and above all have fun

    Friend, this is not an easy question to answer but I will try my best as I have used all these rubbers and my opinion are as follows even thought the difference may be minimal:
    In term of SPIN - T05 > R7 > LT > S Pro
    In tern of SPEED - S PRO > T05 > R7 > LT

    Isn't the Sigma the slower, spinnier XIOM? I played with it on a clubmates bat, it was clearly softer than the Omega he had on the other side. Im not familiar with the R7 and Calibra, but I think T05 should be faster than Sigma and Sigma should be spinnier than T05.

    Why not add a poll Azlan, it would make it easier for you to read the results?

    The Tenergy should be the best with this blade, since Butterfly blades are made for Tenergy and Tenergy is def made for Butterfly blades.. But I have not tried that blade, so I can't really say anything else about this than I have
    Don't hesitate. If you want to reach your goal, just go for it!

    I have to follow Anders and Reiin and agree with them. Best setup would be with Tenergy 05's. Tried with TB AlC and ZLF and they were awesome in terms of feel, control and dwell time to produce spin.
    Spare setup: Blade: Custom DHS W968 93.5g, FH: Hurricane 3 National BS (Black), BH: Tenergy 64 (Red)

    Okay, the best two rubbers out of these four are tenergy and rakza 7...all very good quality rubbers but rakza 7 when new is very spinny it has a different sort of gum on it and is very spinny and still up there close to speed with tenergy....as for xiom a good rubber but doesn't propell very well upwards like tenergy does, as xiom seems to drop a bit. Also obviously tenergy is most popular and is perceived as best rubber by many but that is because butterfly obviously has a good name, rakza 7 in comparison is a largely underated rubber. but tenergy im pretty sure is faster but not as spinny

    Good idea Anders. I was thinking the same thing, but there will be 16 probabilities and it's gonna be so confusing hehehe The way Fong did was fine by me.. Personally, I think in terms of :-

    Spin : Rakza7>T05>CalLT>XSigPro
    Speed : CalLT>T05>XSigPro>​Rakza7

    But then, if T05 stays on the same position in both comaparings.. We can count it in as the best rubbers, since it is equal in both spin and speed compared to the other rubbers?

    Hey Azlan just put a poll to answer your initial question. Which rubber has both most speed and spin. I think this can give you the numbers you're looking for.

    Personally haven't tried the Xiom S pro or the Calibra LT. I know Tenergy 05 has more of a mid distance speed and is just as spinny as Razka 7. I think overall though T05 is probably the best overall.

    I've heard that Sigma users enjoy off the bounce play for the most speed and spin from that rubber. Calibra LT seems to be another mid distance rubber from what I've heard from club members, but I don't know anything about the Xiom Sigma. Players here only use Vega or Omega something like that.

    Yeah, I'm curious too Maybe Hexer suits him well that he can really put the spin on the ball.

    I've only played with one rubber that I liked as much or even a little more than tenergy and that rubber is Xiom Omega IV Asia. The only problem I had with it was it broke after two days. I changed back to tenergy after going through about 6 Omegas.

    Tenergy has the best spin to speed ratio in a real game, sure in practice you can hit as hard as you can and say calibra is the fastest or play a pure looping drill and say barracuda is the spinniest but when i play a real game like for example a tournament with the maximum speed and spin that i can use tenergy has the best ratio on it, but then again im not a high level player so i cant speak for others, just my experience though
