I've heard about how many Chinese players start off using thin sponge rubbers when they're beginning to play because it is a better option when developing strokes and getting the "feeling" of the spin in strokes. Is this accurate? If so, do any of you know of any rubbers with a thin sponge? Thanks in advance.

Hi Andy,

You can get most rubbers with a thinner sponge.  Manufacturers often provide a range of thicknesses of sponge.

You can use something like Mark V with a 1.5mm sponge for more control.
