Hi Alois and Jeff,

 I want to know, Is it ok to use tacky and spiny rubber on offensive ply?

When blade is too fast is it right combination for ply and rubber?  I am mainly concern with control and lobbing ball? After having such combination player need to keep on attack? Or more practice required to get used to get comfortable?

Also let me know what is throw angle and should be think before choosing rubber and ply regards throw angle.

Hi Rajesh,

Everyone has different preferences as to the feel they like.

You can put tacky rubber on a fast blade.  The fast blade will mean that it is difficult to control the ball especially on the short balls.  If it is too fast, think about changing to a slower blade.

The throw angle is the angle that the ball spins off the rubber.  Some players like the effect of the high throw.

Comperatively our FH loop has more forward motion and BH Loop has more brussing effect because of the wrist movement.  For Brushing type loop, low throw angle rubber is preferable (live Sriver) and for with High Through Angle rubber (like Mark V) more forward motion is required, like most of our FH Loop.  That's why more and more players prefer high through angle rubber in Forehand and comparatively low through angle rubber for BH. The it is adjustable through practice.  I personally use Mark V both side.
