      Offensive backhand rubber?

      Recently I have conjured up enough money to purchase a new bat, and I was wondering what backhand rubber would be right for me?

      I have an offensive backhand, my backhand top spins are my strongest point. However I also like to use my backhand for spin, and not always complete power. I was looking at tenergy 05 and 05 fx, but I also like the look of Tenery 80 and 80 fx, does anyone have any other recommendations? It is also noteworthy that I mainly block with my backhand, however I haven't had an issue with blocking using offensive rubbers.

      Thanks.

      What do you feel is lacking in the Mark V? (Too hard/soft/fast/slow/spinny/non-spinny etc?) Then perhaps everyone will have a better idea of what you would like.

      I felt the mark v was not spinny enough, and I also felt I needed more control, though it had good thickness and had a good feel. However, The Mark V would of been ideal, but this is why i'm leaning towards Tenergy, because from what i've heard it quite soft, especially the FX, and it is good for generating great spin and also great control, without sacrificing power.

      If you want more control, I would suggest not going the Tenergy route. I have tried Tenergy and I use Mark V on my Backhand as well and the Tenergy is much faster and much harder to control. There's a huge catapult effect that is not present in the Mark V.

      What about the Mark V GPS? More spin than Mark V as well as more control because it is softer.

      where to start...

      T05 for bh blocking is not ideal due to high throw,but once mastered is a menace.

      T25 is advertised by butterfly as a blocking rubber,with good enough spin too.

      But the tenergies are too expensive.

      I would suggest as anchorschmidt says.

      The one I have is pretty good:
      Armstrong Hikari SR7 55° 1.8 (also available in softer sponge version 40° if I remember correctly)
      It has a medium-hard sponge and a tacky surface. The control is very good, but with just a bit of effort you can attack very hard. The speed difference between flat contact for blocks and brushing contact for topspins is very big and allows for really good changes of pace.

      The more controlled rubber Neos Stiga Tacky I used before is more controlled and tacky, but I find it very lacking in the backhand attacks. Since the rubber doesn't have a lot of acceleration on it's own you need to put a lot of effort to play aggressive.

      If you have the touch you could also try Donic Baracuda on your backhand. I think it's a very good rubber for controlled openers and spin oriented play, but the angle is too high for my liking. It's hard to find a good angle for fast topspins while spinny loops and flicks are pretty easy.

      I wouldnt recommend Tenergys because of tue price, but if money is not an issue then you can get them if you want to.

      It takes 1-2 sessions to get used to the rubbers but once you are used to it you can never go back to another rubber again and maintain ur playing level.

      Airoc S can be a good alternative.

      Vega Pro works so well for me on my backhand. It has a lot of spin, power and is easy to block with.

      Hmm. I never paid much attention to it, but... it looks like you are willing to pay for expensive Tenergy rubbers and you say you conjured up money for a blade, it must be one doozie of a blade hehe. ONE sheet of Tenergy is more expensive than a goodly number of blades.

      If you're not able to control it properly, Tenergy brings more problems than it solves. I switched back to Bluefire from T05 because overall I preferred the softness of the blue sponge. On the backhand, you could try Donic Acuda S2 too. I also find myself very comfortable with Xiom Vega Europe.

      You could try Xiom Vega Japan, works for me. I used to have Bluefire M3 on the BH side.

      If you have the right BH technique you can generate the same spin with Mark V as with T05. It may take a little more effort but on the plus side the Mark V will not be as sensitive to the incoming spin on serves. It is all a trade off. Something cheaper than Mark V is IQUL. The people I play with tell me they can't the difference between me play with IQUL or T05 while looping. I can make the ball jump on after the bounce with either. It is just a matter of technique.

      There is no force that IQUL, Mark V or T05 can generate that the others can't. It may take a slight adjustment in the stroke but they can all generate the same impulse and therefore the same trajectory.

      People are too obsessed with equipment.

      Rakza 7 soft is a great T05FX alternative. Durable, spinny and less sensitive incomming spin and great control. Very reliable rubber.

      At the risk of sounding like a pundit... which I am most certainly NOT... I would say any inverted rubber you can control and get at least average medium speed and spin will work well for you. SO MANY offerings in this class. The BH is all about position, balance, timing, and impacting within the effective strike zone. It really shouldn't matter a whole lot if you do this well, just some personal preference about feel and control.
