Hi

Do you think it's a good idea to change from flextra to sriver on my bh?

Which one is better? And what is sriver good for? thx

Hi Kevin,

That is a good progression.  Sriver is a good control rubber that will be faster than the Flextra and also give you the ability to generate more spin.

Yes it would be.  That will be a bit faster again than the Sriver.

Hi coach alois,

what is the difference between the various types of mark V (m2,xs,hps)and many others . the local store here has the basic mark V only but as far as srivers are considered hey have sriver , sriver el , sriver fx.

 

i have been playing since the last 4 years and have a good game . only recently i have improved my consistency though . My current bat is donic waldner 800 . When should i change my bat to a custom one . And which should be my first bat rubber choice ?

can i use donic waldner 800 ply for the custom bat also ?

 

 

regards

Hi Soham,

If you have been playing for 4 years I think you will probably be ready to go to a custom bat.  I would go for Mark V first as this will be a good step up in speed and spin from your current bat.

The different Mark V rubbers vary with speed and spin.  The XS is faster and the MS faster again.  The HPS is supposed to have more spin.

Start with the regular Mark V and then as you go along you may want to change up in speed and spin.

I haven't used the Waldner 800 so I am unsure of the quality of the wood and how easy it would be to take the existing rubbers off.  Someone else ma be able to help you.

Thanks for you super quick response coach alois .

so as far as new ply is considered can i go for joola carbon all in or butterfly jonyer h2 ? These two are there in the local store within my budget .

They would both be a good options.  I used a blade very similar to the Jonyer for many years.
