a kind of a mathematical question :-) :
If a beginner had to choose between a faster rubber but with a thinner sponge or a slower rubber with a thicker sponge,
what would you recommend for learning?
(And thank you for your website - it´s amazing how many facettes table tennis has !)
I would recommend the slower rubber with thicker sponge. Even a thinner fast rubber gives you less control.

thank you for answering so quickly!
I´ve been looking for a really slow and controlled rubber as a pre-step for my Mark V (which I will use later),
and I ordered Donic Quattro A´conda Medium (1,8mm) which is on sale now.
At this point I´m not interested in speed at all -
I´d like to develop the basic techniques and complete strokes without moving too carefully and incompletely in fear of triggering a bomb (slight exaggeration :-) )

Good idea Thomas. I always think it is better to err on the side of too much control rather than too much power at this stage.
