    Question Forehand Rubber Advice Needed

    Hello Folks

    I need some rubber advice from you experienced lot. Currently I play T64 1.7mm on my forehand. I can loop, loop drive, hit and do an ocassional chop. I'm very much impressed with this rubber. However, I would like another rubber which can do all of the above and then have some catapult effect on my loops and loop drives. I'm considering the following rubbers.

    Tenergy 05
    Tenergy 05 Fx
    Stiga Calibra LT Sound

    OR any other

    I need some advice and suggestions.

    Thanks and Regards

    did you consider just getting a thicker t64 since you wanted more bounce? i might be misunderstanding your questions though....so just to be clear, what do you mean by wanting more catapult?

    personally i find tenergy quite lacking in feeling, if anything to achieve some arc effect in your loops I've always preferred soft rubber like tibhar nimbus sound and soft, rapid dtecs soft, coppa Jo platin more recently

    Get the 1.9mm. T64 is a very versatile rubber. I dont think u will want T05 as it will not increase the catapult effect (if i understood u propperly). T05 FX isnt a bad idea.
    You could try Tibhar Genius or Hexer. With again 1.7mm or 1.9mm.
    I dont think u would like the considerable difference of a soft tensor like Nimbus Soft or sound.

    I would try the thicker t64 first as the thicker sponge will give you the catapult you want, if its still not right for you then maybe try a softer rubber as others suggested. From personal experience I have found that hexer or maybe an fx version of tenergy would be the best

    By catapult I mean, when I hit or loop hard the rubber gives me more power and the ball kicks off like a sling shot. I shall take your and others advice of getting a thicker sponge T64 maybe 1.9 or 2.1 mm. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Did you play with these rubbers? If so how are they compared with Tenergy 64? especially the coppa Jo Platin?
