I suppose you know the normal Nimbus. I've heard that Delta V is a little bit faster, feels a little bit harder and overall better. But it's still a learning rubber: soft, medium speed, good control, not so good spin. It would be a development after Focus 3 Snipe, but I would choose the Rakza instead of that. You need 4 rubber or you just wanted to spare some money? Of course you want to spare but you really need 4? I think you should ask TT11 when will they replace 3=4 rubbers and choose something better. Never go for Nimbus Delta, for that price Rakza is much better.

Find the mistake? From hearsay to recommendation.

I do not know Rakza (which of all these do you mean btw?) so you might be right, but it´s a bit speculative.

What you have heard about Delta V isn´t wrong, although I wouldn´t say it feels harder than the "old" version. It adds a little more spin while - and I think this is its selling point - it is even better for blocking. It remains a rubber for the straight game, where you might open up (spin potential good enough) to enter a fast game of counter and block. For a topspin game Tibhar produces much better rubbers.

Delta S can´t add so much, if V is an update of Nimbus, then S feels like an update of Nimbus Soft. However it is harder than Nimbus Soft and fits somewhere in between existing Nimbus rubbers.

My verdict: If you play a counter/block game (maybe on backhand) it will be difficult to find a much better rubber than Delta V. If spin is your thing, look elsewhere.

I definitely try to play a more aggressive game, I like the slow heavy topspin to wrong foot the opponent and am working on my mid-distance game. Have you played with Tibhar 1Q rubbers?

You are right in general, what made me to not recommend Delta V is the price. Too high for a 'good blocking rubber which can be used to attack, but not so good.' For that price you can buy very good rubbers, not just average good ones. And yes, I hit with Nimbus around 2-4 shots, but that and my friend's complaints about the new version (he played both) were enough. And I said Rakza, because it was the other type of rubbers in the 4for3 action.

Then Nimbus isn't your cup of tee. I didn't tried 1Q, maybe others can help.
But rule No.1 is that if you need help, post a video about your play or at least describe your style and level in details.
Without these we can't give you proper recommendation.

I tried them both on a timo boll spirit, they were both very mushy if I remember right, I only used them for one evening then sold on ebay. They are good for blocking but not much else, only set (out of lots and lots) that I have only used once and got rid

Have you used Yasaka Rakza?
