Hi Anthony,

High throw rubbers mean that the spin will react more off the rubber and there tends to be more grip on the rubber.  So against backspin balls a high throw rubber will make it a little easier to lift the backspin ball over the net.  

A low throw rubber means it doesn't have as much lift or effect off the rubber.  These rubbers are good for playing against topspin balls or playing more of a flat game.

Neither is better or worse than the other.  It is just a matter of preference.
