    Elite is too soft, Europe is soft enough.
    Elite, you will loose a lot of spin and speed. I struggled to use that - barely can get the ball past the net.
    Lots of my students are using Europe and a good "soft" backhand rubber

    Thanks a lot. Does the rubber gives a sound when you loop the ball? Is it good for forehand as well?

    Anything will give a sound
    These are tensor rubbers, so some sound yes.
    Forehand - I will say it is too soft.
    I personally prefer harder sponge for FH, but some people can't live without soft sponge on the FH.
    So it depends on your liking and not mine.

    Just like Tony..
    Hard on fh will give you a better control, spin, speed. Its like hammering the ball with strokes.

    YES Vega Europe, no Elite, because its really tooo soft. Vega Europe is a good quality rubber though you cant do anything wrong with it.

    Elite isn't as bad as people make it look. You won't really know if it suits you untill you try it.
    It is really soft, but when matched with the right blade (not too soft or flexy blade), I liked it. It allowed for a lot of control. I was able to land backhand shots on the table really consistently and helped me develop my stroke.

    I'm not using it anymore though...
