Hello. I having been playing for 50 years and subscribing to Pingskills for a year. I play in the Premier League in Bath, in the bottom third. I play defensive with counterattack using a Butterfly Long Feint II on the backhand; my best shot is backhand flick. But I cannot find the best rubber for my forehand despite reading the information on each rubber. I am currently trying B Tackiness Chop II 1.9 and Stiga Chop & Drive 1.8. What I need is more control to be able to stop attackers killing me off before I can flick on my backhand. My forehand attack suffers for speed probably because I want control? I'd be grateful for your advice.
That is an interesting dilemma to have. I am not a rubber expert but I think I would go for the control rubber first to make sure you are controlling your defence. As an idea experiment with different thicknesses of the current rubbers. Try going thicker to get more speed.
Other PingSkillers may have some ideas for you as well.
