Hi Alois,

For the new season I want to change blade and rubber.

For the blade I want to go with the Butterfly Timo Boll Forte OFF.

I'm playing with MarkV 1.8mm on both sides now and I don't know if I have to go with a MarkV(HPS) 2.0 mm instead off 1.8 mm or go with a Yasaka Pryde 40 ?

What do you think coach is it more difficult to adapt to a thicker rubber or stay with the 1.8mm and go for another rubber like the yasaka Pryde 40 with more spin and control ?

Some people at my club say that playing with 2.0 mm will give me little control ?

Because I want to be an offensive player but with a good block defense and control too, I'm doubting what to do...

Can you give me your opinion,

Hi Mark,

I would go with the Pryde.  The 2mm will not be very much difference at all.
