As a beginner I am confused as to why different rubber is used on both sides of the blade.
Also, I think I need a blade and rubber with control, There are so many to choose from, how do you narrow the choice down?
You can use the same type of rubber on the backhand and forehand and that is what both Alois and I do. However one side must be red and one side must be black. This allows your opponent to easily see which rubber you are hitting the ball with if you do have different rubber on your backhand to forehand.
There is an incredible amount of table tennis equipment available and there are a lot of good brands to choose from. We don't try to keep up with all the different possibilities as it would be more than a full time job!
