Hi PingSkills

I really confused on what Sriver rubber should I use

can you please explain me what's the different between the original Sriver, Sriver FX, and Sriver EL

and which one should I choose?

Hi Frendy,

It is confusing.  They are similar.  I think the FX is slightly softer.  Just get the original Sriver.

so, what's the different between softer and harder? and why should i choose the original one? because a lot of people here suggest me to buy the fx one

It really doesn’t make too much difference.  The softer will give you more control but less speed.

A lot of people said that softer sponge will generate more spin rather than harder sponge becase the sponge can sink into the soft sponge Is it true?

The softer will generate more spin if you let the ball sink into the rubber.  If you brush the ball finely you can get more spin with the harder sponge.
