Hello, I introduce myself: my name is Lucas and I would like to ask about the thickness of the sponge, you see, I am a modern defensive player who plays with a 2.0 mm Andro Rasanter R47, but I feel that it is very fast, all my shots with this rubber are so fast that a large part of the balls go off the table, even if I want to hit soft it goes off the table anyway, I use it with a Dr. Neubauer Barricade DEF wood, what I am looking for is a rubber with a lot of control, I'm about to buy a Butterfly Tackiness Chop but I don't know which sponge thickness to choose, if one of 1.1mm or 1.9mm, the 1.1mm one catches my attention, what is the difference between that thickness and the 2.0mm one?

Hi Lucas,

The thicker the sponge the faster it will be. If you are looking for more control then go for the thinner sponge.
