Getting more dwell time out of harder rubbers

Hi Coach,

I am using Bluefire M2 (Max thickness) on my forehand for a while now and I am ready to move on to something faster. I tested the M1 from some1 else but I could not get any dwell out of that rubber. The ball sometimes left my racket with unpredictable trajectories because I could not really grab into the ball, the ball just left instantly.

Do you have any advice?

Hi Rob,

I think that is one of the trade offs you have with faster and harder rubbers.

Other may have advice on different rubbers that may suit better.  I like the Vega Pro for a nice balance between the two.

Hi Alois,


Thanks but I dont think I am going to use Vega Pro since its about the same hardness as Bluefire M1, for you it will be problably not to hard since I think the Pingskills touch I more a softer blade?

Also the blade I used with the M1 was some Waldner Ultra Carbon or something like that and since Im using the Timo Boll Spirit It may have more dwell, I dont know. I will probably ask him I can try one of his old sheets On my blade once he will change his rubbers to new ones.

Its also not that I have to change but Im a little bit of a speed maniac, but the M2 will do it for now.


Anyway thanks for trying to help!
