Need help!:)

Hello everyone! I need some advice. I need to change my setup. This Donic OFF+ blade I use is too fast for me so I'm goin to change it for Tibhar Stratus Powerwood OFF- or some other OFF-. Also I have to change my rubbers (damaged). I dont have good BH so i prefer blocks/lobs/loops and for FH i would like to get something for good top spins and side spins still with some good control and rotation. This is the list that I probably gonna buy 2 of those rubbers. Please help me which ones should be best choice.

XIOM Vega Europe
XIOM Vega Elite
DONIC Acuda s2
DONIC Acuda s3
DHS Hurricane III Neo
DHS Skyline II Neo

Regards,
Satori

I personally prefer all Xiom Rubbers, i just sympathize with them ;) and on the contrary i dislike dhs rubbers because they are so untypically for us european players. i think it is no solution to imitate the chinese players.
all my first bats were Donic rubbers (Desto F3) and i really think they have a very good control and still have speed.

Personally i would suggest the Donic Acuda S2 or a Donic Desto F3 on your BH and a nice grippy Xiom rubber on your forehand "vega europe2 for example :)

hope it helped :)

H3 Neo is what I slapped on the BH of my TBS OFF blade. Great BH rubber that be used on FH wing in an emegency.

I normnally use Tibhar Aurus on Fh and a real inexpensive Chinese non-tacky rubber on BH (XP 2008 Super Power) Both of those could work.

There are a gazillion things that could work for you in terms of rubber if you are a flexible allround OFF player.

Hope it all works out for you.

Thanks a lot:) It really helped me:) Don't You think s3 should be better than s2? More control? Is is toughtest? And what about sponge? Shoud I pick 1.8 or 2.0 for Acuda and max or 2.0 for Vega?

You are very welcome! to be honest i haven't played with acuda s3 yet but what i read so far is that the s2 has a tiny bit more spin while mainting its control. Especially when playing near or midnear to the table. if u like rallies from behing or you like to move around a lot, then the s3 does fit you more!
They bouth have a mediumsoft sponge which allows many player to play safe and strong bh-strokes!

i would say 2.0 for the acuda and max for the vega! - especially if you use a off- blade
How long have you been playing already?

You're welcome!
Very well! Tell us in some weeks how it was and review it on TTD again :) i would love to hear from you again!
Oh that's no problem, you will get better sooner, if you once knew how it is played, you learn it fast again - it's like riding a bike:)

Cheers

I played the Rasant myself and it's a pretty neat rubber! Especially on the fh to maximize speed and spin!
Even if you didnt get the Xiom it is still a very good rubber at the same niveau as the Xiom.

Have fun playing it:)
and btw, there are enough players with dhs hurricane 4 (neo). Glad you aren't one of them :)

Acuda bh and vega europe max fh is a good choice. I've heard Rasant is pretty alright so I'm sure you will be able to adapt to using it, hope it works well for you :)
