For buying new rubbers i want your suggestion i have short-listed mark v or coppa jo gold or coppa jo platin or if you can please suggest any other rubber. i am particularly confused between the mark v and the coppa.

Hi Parth,

I don’t have a lot of experience with the different types of rubbers.  I think either of Mark V or Coppa rubbers are good quality and able to develop your game.

Others may be able to give you more details.

Hey Parth,

I've done a little research over the Joola blade, since I've never tried one, and according to the results, it shows that that blade has a relatively low speed (compared to other fast blades) and works better to be able to control your ball.

As for the rubbers, if your are satisfied with Mark V and want to try it on your backhand, then try it with the one already on your blade. It's one of the best rubbers since it has a nice combination of spin, control and can dish out a decent amount of speed. 

However, the Donic Coppa rubbers are very fast and lack control, and are really hard to play with on your backhand, and might be better suited on the forehand side to generate the speed you need to finish a point, and in contrast with your Tibhar soft, you'll have a hard time adapting.

On another note, it would be very helpful if you could inform us of your general playing style, or what you'd like your playing style to be, so that I could try to be of more help.
