Hi Saketh,

The disadvantage is that they can't generate much spin themselves as well as a normal rubber can.

That means they are relying on their opponent as to what spin is on the ball in the rally.

Because you can't generate topspin it is difficult to hit the ball very fast.

Their weakness is that they are reactive in the rally rather than being able to dictate the spin and speed.
