First of all I would like to introduce myself. I am Christof and I am 19 years old. My country is Belgium.
My question is about the difference between Calibra Lt sound and the new tour rubbers.
I would like to use one of these. For the moment I play with the calibra sound 2.0 on a Butterfly Balsa carbo racket, both on forehand and backhand. Especially in the backhand I want more control and spin while doing my topspin, in the forehand I need more speed.
Maybe I just need to use a thinner BH rubber, but I would like to know what the tour rubbers would be like? Are they faster, spinnier or more controllable comparing to the calibra sound? And what would you recommend me? I like to play from a certain distance from the table using topspin in both backhand and forehand, however I have the feeling my backhand topspin isn't reaching far enough...
It looks like they have made these faster with more spin but I haven't even seen one of these sheets so it is hard for me to comment. I hope one of our readers has used them or knows more about the rubbers for you.
It will give you the extra speed to reach a further distance on the backhand but not sure about the control since it is faster. The extra speed may be what you are looking for on the forehand.
