I have been playing TT for close to 10 years now and can describe myself as an intermediate player.I train under a coach for 4 times a week to unlearn my bad strokes and to learn looping in a good way.
To get to the next level, I am getting a set of Yinhe blades (N-9, T-11+ and Venus V-11).
I need some advice on the kind of rubbers that I can use along with these blades. As all the above mentioned blades are offensive blades, I feel that your advice can be applied on all the 3 blades.
I play from mid distance to far away from the table. So I will buy rubbers with 2.0mm or Max thickness.
1) On the forehand, I need rubber with more focus on speed compared to Spin with high degree of control. I hit both loop winners as well as flat kill shots on the forehand. So I need a rubber that allows me to hit both these kinds of shots quite easily.
2) On the backhand, I need rubber with more spin than speed with very high degree of control. I am learning to do looping on my backhand. Here again, I need a rubber that allows me to hit both loop as well as flat shots with ease. In particular, the rubber should also be very good for chopping. Overall, I need a all round rubber that has excellent spin with good control.
I have narrowed down on the Andro Rasant Grip / Power Grip / Turbo series and Yazaka Rakza 7 / 9 series. I want to know if this would be a good fit on the Yinhe blades that I have got.
3) In case you have a tried and tested combination on the above mentioned Yinhe blades, I can ditch my selection and change over to your choice directly.
I am investing quite a bit of money on these rubbers and blades and so I want to get it right first time.
Thanks and rgds,
