How do you flick with hard rubbers?

I have a question regarding the backhand flick (banana). Specifically for players that use hard rubbers.

Do you flick more with the topsheet (brush) or do you also activate the sponge by digging into it?

It seems very hard to dig into the sponge when performing flicks with the hard rubbers because alot of acceleration is required. During practise recently I felt like my arc was safer and spinnier with a fast brush using the topsheet but also harder to do because of the precision required.
