I currently use a Neottec Katana 1.8mm rubber, which is a medium soft rubber, for my BH side. For some reason, I feel like I'm not getting enough control on my BH strokes. I've heard that many pro players changed to a harder rubber (probably around medium hardness) for their backhand. Should I change the rubber to a harder one?

Hi Andy,

I would say the difference isn't the rubber.  The 1.8mm rubber should give you enough control.  I would work on the control of the strokes with good technique first.
