Baracuda, EL-S, FX-S, Rakza 7 soft or Xiom Vega series?

Hi! I’m looking for a rubber that’s easier to control than my current rubber (Tenergy 05) and after asking many people, I landed on these rubbers:
BARRACUDA
EL-S
FX-S
RAKZA 7 SOFT
XIOM VEGA series

Could anyone make a comparison between these in terms of:
SPIN
CONTROL
DURABILITY
SPEED

You can also mention Pro’s/Con’s with each rubber!

My game is just hitting with my backhand right now, but I want to learn brushing and looping with backhand.

​​​​​​​Thx already!

While all these rubbers should be easier to use than T05 if the goal is learning to brush I would get some hard slow tacky rubber that discourages hitting.

Did you consider trying out Tenergy 05-FX or Tenergy 19? I think it would be rational if you are looking for something similar to Tenergy 05 but easier to control. Also I dont recommend FX-S, I tried it out on my BH and I completely did not like it, I felt that to hit correctly with this rubber I need to be perfectly angled, timed and positioned, which in my opinion is not what you are looking for with soft rubber. I feel more comfortable and safe with MX-P which, referring to the definition and specification of these two rubbers, should be absurd because MX-P is harder and faster than FX-S. In my opinion you should also try Rakza 7 (normal, not soft version) as it is considered slower but safer than t05.
