Hi Alois/Jeff,

I'm Vishy from Chennai, India.

I'm an intermediate table tennis player and currently using GKI EuroStar for more than a year.

I'm planning to buy the following racquet.

How good is Liga rubber?

Kindly advise on this.

If you've any recommendations, I request to share your thoughts.

Hi Vishy,

I think the step up from the GKI bat to the Sonic bat isn't a big enough step up.  They are both basically remade bats.

If you are feeling comfortable with the GKI then you can probably think about moving up a further step to a custom bat with a rubber like Mark V or Sriver.

Thanks for suggesting a custom made bat.

I have already played with my friend's custom bat with Mark V on both hands at times and I felt the speed missing.

Finally I went ahead and purchased a Yasaka Carbon Pen hold blade. Added Yasaka Rakza 7 to FH and DHS Hurricane 3 Neo to BH.

I'm happy with that and feels good to play.

90% of the shots are on the table.

Thanks again for your suggestions.
