Hello Alois, hello Jeff,

Since a half year I play beginners bat with friendship rict on both sides. Total costs 25€. The black side is significantly slower. It has a blue sponge wich doesn't seem to be thinner. Until yesterday it was really annoying, and i was sure, when the rubbers are gone, it will happen in few weeks, Next I want same feeling on both sides. My bh was especially bad on easy balls. They were going very often into the net. Yesterday I found out, if I conciously punch those balls, they go in, and don't stop on the net. With this new discovery, should I keep my combination or should i try same on both sides?

Thanks

Hi Marcin,

I would keep the same if you are feeling that you are getting used to the rubbers you have.

Hello Alois, Hello Jeff

 

Yesterday at the World Tour, there was many stands from TT brands there with promotions prices. I couldn't buy my present rubbers (friendship 729 rict). In fact the we're talking badly about my rubbers. So at the donic stand, I saw the yasaka mark 5. They said this would be good for me, but they have a cheaper version of it - "yasaka extra high grade". I bought them. They were just 10 bucks a sheet. Do you think it was a wise buy, or should I still keep the 729 and change may be later?)

Hi Marcin,

Give them a try and see what they are like.  You don't have anything to lose.  Let me know what they are like.

Actually i stick to the old rubbers until they are gone. But sometimes i try the new ones and i already see a difference. The new ones are definitely easyier to play for me. the rubbers are slower and softer and the sponge is slightly thicker and softer than my frienship rubbers. At the beginning i thought very badly about those rubbers but i think ill get used to them pretty fast. I think they could be better suited for my developement for now.

Thanks
