What rubber characteristics control how easy it is to defense against heavy chops and downspin?
Could you please explain how each one affect the trajectory of the ball?
Thank you so much ..
As long as it is a good quality rubber you will be able to deal with backspin balls.
I find rubber with a grippy surface a bit better for lifting backspin with a topspin stroke. The grippy rubbers will give you a more direct angle off your bat. When you are lifting topspin it will help you to lift the ball directly off the rubber at a higher trajectory.
