Recently, a lot of companies have been releasing rubbers "specifically designed for celluloid free/plastic balls".
The thing is, at my club, we still use celluloid balls, but play with plastic balls during tournaments.
Now I have tried and experimented with both balls and have adapted to the plastic, but I wanted to know if you have an idea of whether those new rubbers perform the same on old celluloid balls, or if they would somehow fail to "do their job"
Now I know you don't experiment with lots of rubbers, so I'm also asking answers of anyone in the community who might help.
P.S: an example of those rubbers are the Hurricane 8 and Yasaka rising dragon, both relatively tacky.
There is a lot of talk about the different rubbers. They are not going to make a big difference if players use the Celluloid or plastic balls. It is not like they won't grip or hit one or the other. It is good marketing by the manufacturers to get us all to buy new rubbers.
Happy to hear other's opinions as well.
