Which Rubbers suit me?

This user has no status.
Hello!
Currently I play with Glayzer 09C on my fh. I love its spin capabilities and good control. It feels perfect, but sometimes slow. But maybe I need something similar but faster, atleast I want to try. Not anything superfast! I want good durability and around G09C price is maximum. I play spinny looping game until I can hit the ball faster. I'm looking for softer sponge hybrid or Chinese rubber. I don't want to use booster or speed glue. So I thought Hurricane rubbers sound good. So many options and even more sponge, national, hardness options. So which one of them is the best for me? It can be any hurricane.

Maybe rakza z would be a good option, as you said you want a softer rubber, that is faster than glayser. Hurricane without booster is slow, spinny and hard, which is the opposite of what you wanted, so i would avoid it if i were you.

However, if you can afford it, dignics 09c is the arguably the king of hybrid rubbers.

I tried Dignics 09C. It had too hard sponge for my liking. Maybe in the future. But too expensive...
So unboosted Chinese rubbers are not that fast? Maybe I still think some H3N
I definitely should try Rakza Z then.

Hurricane is a different kind of fast, in a way. I know it sounds obvious, but you need to put more power in to make it go faster. On its own, say in the blocking game, it is quite slow. For some this is too extreme while for some it is perfect. For example, as you are familiar with d09c, during the passive game, it does not seem fast, but as soon as you put some power into it, it rockets off.

If you boost the G09c, it really speeds up quite a bit

It's not hybrid. Glayzer 09C is perfect for me, except the speed. But it is not bad idea to try non tacky rubbers. Any recommendations for me?
Dignics 80 or Bluestar A2, more speed and not to hard. Both easy to play. Cybershape Wood pairs very well with Dignics 80. I have friend who plays with Cybershape wood and Dignics 80 on forehand. Bluestar are very good aswell.

Could some nittaku H3 be a good option? I know nothing about them.
They needed to be boosted.
As for other alternatives of g09c are: k3 (this one is significantly faster), rakza z ( little bit faster), sieger pk50 ( about the same speed as g09c)

Have a chat / PM with Mocker, he has really good info on hybrid rubbers, CTTS is his shop, (Chinese Table Tennis Sweden)
Loki Arthur China (LAC) is a good alternative, takes a couple of hours play to liven up / break in.
Xiom Tau 2 is also very good, he is probably the only person this side of Asia that stocks it, even in Asia it can be hard to source, a little more expensive than G09C, due to lack of availability more than anything else, when I first bought Tau2 it was about £27, now it’s £45 ish, if not more!!
 
Once you feel a rubber is perfect, it's wise to stick with it. Perfect rubbers for a player appear once in a blue moon. Perhaps find a faster blade instead.
I agree with both @TensorBackhand and @TackyForehand

The way the original poster described it, Glayzer 09c sounds like a perfect match. And if you like it and you like the price of it, learning how to boost it is pretty much automatic. I would just boost it and not fool around with other rubbers.
 
The Hurricane III without boost will be shockingly slow if you are used to play with Japanese or European rubber.
Even with boost its slower than G09C, one of the reasons I like it...

Cheers
