Hi there

I am planning on getting a tenergy rubber for my backhand so i can backhand chop and sometimes counter attack. currently i use a donic coppa jo gold and when i chop a heavy topspin counter the ball goes really high and flies past the opponent.currently wondering if you could recommend a tenergy rubber (05,64,25 or 80) that gives me a low and swift return chop on my opponents table that also has heavy backspin as well . what is the difference between the tenergy fx series

Hi John,

The rubber is not the critical factor here.  If you really want Tenergy, I would go for either the 64 or 25 but get a thinner sponge with it. The FX rubbers are softer.

Why not try long pimpled? When you chop a heavy topspin the ball wouldn't fly too high. Although it cannot generate too much backspin, it is however already returning your opponent's topspin in the form backspin, and therefore you do not need to worry about generating backspin yourself.

Benzene is right.
Chopping a heavy topspin with Tenergy rubber which is not suitable for this too much...
Alois is also right,you can eventually learn chopping with any rubber,though,Tenergy,or better said offensive rubbers in general are not so suitable for it.
It is also true that thin-sponge FX 64/25 (64 better in my opinion) would be best of Tenergy for this.
