Hi Jeff and Alois,

I was wondering if Andro's new Rasant Powersponge was a good rubber for beginners. I have heard that the softer sponge provides excellent control which is good for beginners, right? The speed level doesn't seem too high, and I can get the rubber in 1.9 mm sponge. What worries me is the fact that it is a tensor rubber. Are tensors bad for beginners?

Another question that I have is why classic rubbers make such good beginner rubbers? Is it due to their unforgiving nature, or just their excellent control qualities?

Thanks in Advance,                                                                                                                                                                   Jon

Hi Jon,

I think the Rasant Powersponge probably isn’t great for beginners.  It will still be too fast.  I would go with Mark V or Sriver or something along those lines.  The classic rubbers are a bit slower which gives better control
