About 5 years ago, among topspin types, I could do only slow high spinny topspin. I was using Primorac off- and tenergy 05fx rubbers. With this stroke I was winning weaker players and defenders with long pimples. I loved to destroy long pimplers with continuous slow high spinny topspins. But when I started to play vs better players and strong attackers, this stoke didn't work. Since then I gave up slow high spinny topspins. I tried to do fast low topspins. But now I can't do such slow high spinny topspins. I thought it was because now I am playing with off+ blade. Recently I tried allround and off- blades, with them I still couldn't do it. But they were not primorac and tenergy. Is it possible that I forgot technique of slow high spinny topspins? Or was that depend on tenergy rubber? I need this stroke because it is very safe and effective stroke vs defenders (pimples). I can loop backspins, but I can't do it continuously in a row, that's why recently I lost to a pimple user in the semifinal of a tournament. I suspect it depends on tenergy. Furthermore, last year in a weekly mini tournament I was usually in 5-6th place among 10-12 people. But once when I played with friends racket with tenergy rubbers, I beat all and took 1st place.
What will you say about my thoughts?
I think Tenergy is the best rubber around.
However, you can still play effective slow spinny topspins with other rubbers. If this is an important part of your game and you want to feel more comfortable then I would suggest going to Tenergy.
