      Euro style Chinese Rubbers for testing

      Can anyone advise? I have a number of homemade blades which I want to test but don't have enough rubbers to test them all side by side. I don't want to pay top prices for the usual Tibhar evo/Aurus/Genius rubbers i usually buy. Can anyone suggest cheaper Chinese alternatives which may not be the same but would give me some idea as to how the blade plays. Focus 3 Snipe perhaps?

      I find the Tin arc by DHS or Genesis by Stiga is a good Euro Chinese style rubber.

      for cheaper options those are good. Yinhe Mercury 2 and Mars2 are also good.

      About Yinhe Mars I recommend you get the hardest option because that rubber is a lot soft

      How're the harder options in comparison to the soft version btw? I only tried the soft version. I used to use it on my XVT ZL Koto and my DHS Fang Bo ALC

      I think Soft is slow, but very good control and goo for beginners
      Medium is maybe more balanced, I can't recall off my head, but I think soft is 31 ~ 32 degrees
      Medium is 34~36 degrees
      so technically Medium is your hardness for Tenergy 05
      where soft is closer towards the 05FX (FX basically)
      Hope this type of comparison helps

      Moon Speed has more kick/speed/spin than Mars
      Mars is more control

      61Second Eagle (2.0 sponge in 40' hardness). Very inexpensive and a hidden gem for BH. Only it needs 3 layers of glue (rub the first glue layer in deep).
