    Red face FH Rubbers for Rosewood 5, need some idea

    Hi all

    Im looking for rubbers to replace, mainly my H3, on the forehand.

    The blade is Stiga Rosewood 5, 93g, ST ( handle doesnt really matter, does it ).

    Anyhow, I have been switching between Neo H3 (provin.) and a lot of other rubbers. The thing that i like about H3 is the quality of stroke u can produce with it. But then the problem is, it is just too much effort, too much work for every single shot. Physically im not up to it, i find myself exhausted after a game of 5.

    So im hoping to find a non-chinese rubber that will do the job. A rubber that is softer, but yet produce strokes with quality close to H3. Also i like how u can really feel the ball on the H3, i ve played with some tensor that will just eject the ball right out, before i could produce enough spin, and perfect the stroke. One last thing, almost all the new, non-chinese rubbers nowadays break quite easily.... and im sick of it.... $30~50 per sheet is quite something....

    The last two rubbers i tried for FH are Omega IV Pro, Calibra LT. I really luv calibra, just that they break a lot, and the touch/feel/spin is not good enough.

    Right now, Im looking at S2. Also, maybe S3 for the BH (BH still developing, slow loop). Please give me some advice

    S2 and S3 are skyline 2 and skyline 3? I often call it TG2 and TG3 which is why I ask. As for rubbers that allow for similar strokes you could try JOOLA Xplode. I put that on a wood blade and it was really nice. I can use the same stroke, but not worry about tiring myself out on strokes as I may do sometimes with TG3 or H3.

    No wonder you are exhausted after a game of 5, the blade is already very heavy at 93 gm, normally the weight of a blade should be around 85 gm, add 2 pieces of Chinese rubbers, the total weight will come close to 190gms. If you get a blade that is 85 gm, then you can stick to Chinese rubbers because the total weight is reduced to 182 gms. And if you choose non-chinese rubber then the total weight will further reduce to around 175 gms. You may want to reconsider your current setup.

    I think, what im looking for, is a rubber with the following qualities.

    1. play like a slightly boosted Neo H3
    2. Lighter than Neo H3
    3. control / dwell time as good as Neo H3

    Also, im NOT after MAX speed stuff. control is what i care more
    after all, if tthe ball doesnt land on the table, there is no point for speed

    I would stick with the DHS H3N set up...that way at least you know when you produced some quality strokes they are all through your own effort and technique.......choosing the faster rubbers, less effort, less technique, so in other words its like boosting rubbers a complete lie of the speed, control of your strokes, in my opinion using these high tensor rubbers are just plain wrong........

    No non-Chinese rubbers will give you that feel and dwell I'm afraid. None that I can think of anyway. The closest will be the Donic Coppa Series I think but even then it's nothing compared to H3NEOP.
    Blade: DHS Hurricane Hao 656 FH: BH:
    Blade: Yasaka Extra Offensive FH: DHS Hurricane 3 NEO BH: Butterfly Tenergy 05 FX
    Blade: DHS PG7 FH: BH:
    Blade: Stiga Rosewood NCT V FH: BH:

    If you have the skills, and also are able to spend some money... Tenergy sounds like the rubber for you.. Or else, something like Hexer HD, Rasant, Calibra og Pulse are also good rubbers
    Don't hesitate. If you want to reach your goal, just go for it!

    thx for all the ideas guys
    About T05, on another forum, i saw Brian Pace saying thins like "its a rubber for people who train 5 days a week, and x hours a day". That is what he said after he left BTY, u know, not being controlled any more.
    Im afraid i'll be excluded from that, i only play 3 times a week. Not even half of it is training. Also, cuz of the $$.
    Hexer HD, im just scared away by the "HD". It sounds like rocket fast for me im after quality
    Rasant, can't get my hands on one. But again, the Ad sound like rocket fast to me also.

    Have any one tried S2 and S3? cuz a lot of people are using S1, i wonder if s2 and s3 are also good.

    How long have you used that hurricane? Have you considered just reboosting it?

    You may want to try just changing the BH to a lighter rubber to see if it may help reduce the weight ?

    I use H3 Neo 39 degree hardness (china domestic version) for FH and Acuda S3 on BH on my RW5 & enjoying every stroke. Blade weight is 91g, total with rubbers = 182g.
