I always watching Ma Long's matches and I often see he changes his rubber. (I mean from FH to BH).
During the match,he uses his FH rubber for loops and topspins (mostly say it's DHS Hurricane 3 NEO Blue Sponge National).
But when he want to smash, he uses his BH rubber especially when the ball is high.(Tenergy 64 or 05)
The question is : Why he does that? It is because Tenergy has higher bounce or the speed? Or something else?
He must feel comfortable smashing with the backhand side rubber. It is not something that a lot of players do. It will just be that he feels the ball comes out faster or cleaner from the backhand side rubber when smashing.
It is probably best for most players to just use the same side when smashing and topspinning.
