I can see Xu Xin video that he had changed to Rosewood 5. But I don't know what type of rubber for his back hand.

Also he is naturally a right hander. Yup, I thought he uses Rosewood V, we can see it in the video "A day in the life of XU Xin"..but true enough, Stiga website stated Offensive NCT Wood. Maybe he just changed it from Rosewood..

Xu Xin is naturally left-handed.
