Those are great questions. 2.0 MX-P weights the same as 2.1 T05. So maybe I could get more spin using MX-P max. Must try this sometime if I can handle the weight .
It's a bit of a throw and backspin attack thing. While T05 shoots out the ball more, there are those times when you feel absolutely lazy and just need the rubber to work for you. T05(or Tenergy in general) does that well. Other rubbers do it okay, but T05 does it well.
you say you think theres a chance you could get more spin with mx-p MAX. Seamiller once told me that he doesn't believe you get more spin with thicker sponge, he says all you get out of it is speed. do you disagree with this? Some of the spinniest loops i've ever felt are from players that refuse to use max sponge, but their reasoning had nothing to do with spin or speed, it was about the added control they felt they had with thinner sponge.
im very curious about what you think about sponge thickness effect on spin, because i've heard a lot of conflicting views. And the "engineer" players do make compelling arguments that the thicker sponge should add spin.
