As you can see from the title i like to forehand chop a lot, in fact most of my shots are heavy forehand chops, which rubber do you guys think will be able to get me maximum spin in my forehand chops?

Hi Varun,

I think a 1.8mm to 2.0mm tacky rubber of some sort would be right but I don't have specific suggestions about the type of rubber.

Others may be able to help.

Butterfly Tackiness Chop is a great option. Not only will you be able to put alot of backspin on your chops but you can also still use a wide variety of attacking strokes when needed.

Thats exactly what I need, I'm more of the "Modern Defender" so the Butterfly Tackiness Chop would be a great option, are there any more rubbers like this?

Maybe Stiga Chop&Drive
It is quite slow and I used it on the very slow bat,so I do not know how it will behave on faster blade.
But the backspin was extreme.
I was even able to execute MaLin serve ten times in a row.
But it was too slow with my blade.

 Do you think that if i get maybe a 1.1mm it will reduce the amount of spin it will produce?

I really do not know.
I tested 1.9 version,but I am not an equipment specialist.
I think that the main factor that affects the spin is the grip of the rubber sheet.
