I play with DHS-hurricane-III last 3 years on both FH and BH sides. I like it because of its control, spin, power. My problem is: I can't do backhand topspin with my new blade(Sanwei fextra off+, clone of stiga clipper). I have a feeling it is even impossible to learn it. I am playing with it last 3 months. With stigaCC7 I could do some BH topspins against slow balls. And I was feeling that my BH topspin was improving. But stiga cc7 was so heavy that I couldn't react to fast balls, sometimes I even didn't have time to block because of its weight. So I changed it...
Many of our club members said that hurricane is not BH rubber. But I tried once tensor rubber (xiom vega europe) for BH side, DHS-H-3 for FH. The successful touch which I do with vega europe didn't work for hurricane and vice versa. I was very confused during the game.
When I was playing with tensor rubbers (tenergy 05, 05fx, xiom vega china, europe, japan) I could do nice BH topspins even against some backspins. But it was difficult to return spinny serves and spinny strokes. It was difficult to play in terms of control. So I started to play with DHS hurricane3.
With my current blade it is easier to play than my previuos stiga offensive classic carbon. But I don't feel any progress in my game with my current blade Fextra, although it was better with other blades in terms of progress.
Should I get used to tensor rubber to BH side? Should I return to all+ or off- blade? Does it help to improve my game? Please suggest me something...
My suggestion for you is to change to a slower blade. This will allow you to control the ball more. It sounds like the current blade is too fast.
