The ESN rubber shrinking has been discussed prior but I don't find a topic where people try to collect which ESN rubbers don't shrink or not so much.
In general I think ESN rubbers are pretty good for relatively short period, it can be a month or two but after the factory boost (or whatever they get) evaporates their playing characteristics change. Once this happens and you take the rubber off gluing it back with a proper fit is next to impossible since the rubber becomes smaller than the racket head. Of course you can play around with re-boosting or stretching it back but it's quite horrible. If you take the rubber off and leave it stored for another month it becomes so small that there can be centimeters missing in all direction.
I took a random photo from the internet about the issue and you might think this surely is overexaggerated, but in fact it's not even that drastic. I have seen more severe cases.
This property of ESN rubbers always pushed me away from even considering them, while I have tried on others rackets Gewo, Andro, Joola, Victas, Xiom etc etc rubbers and they play quite nice. So I'm wondering if there are any modern rubbers that don't shrink.
I have found that Tibhar K2 and Rakza 7 soft doesn't shrink. I have a Rakza 7 soft which I got for my dad and it has been sitting in storage for a few years now and surprisingly it didn't shrink. Is it the same with the normal Rakza 7? Because I think even these ~10 year old tensor rubbers are still quite relevant and very usable.
Tibhar K2 has a dense, non-pored sponge and it didn't shrink for even after a year, it has pretty good durability.
I recently got some Victas V>15 extras and they don't have any sweet smell nor oily touch like MX-P and some other notoriously shrinking rubbers. So I have some confidence that it might not shrink so much.
Any other experiences?
