ohhhh great...  any idea what type of game or player will use soft rubber n what type of player will prefer hard rubber.....???

It is more the type of strokes you like to play.  The soft rubber requires a stroke that you hit through the ball whereas the harder rubber you can brush the ball more.

HI Azhar,

With a name like Euro in there it is probably on the softer side.

The Euro normally suggests a softer sponge.
