Hi All,

Having stepped down from carbon blades to solidify the foundations of my game, I'm exploring rubber options for my new Petr Korbel blade (92g).

I quite like tacky rubbers but I suspect that too much tack might end up in insufficient speed levels.

Some candidates to mention: Tibhar K3, Victas V>20 Double Extra, Stiga Dragon Grip, Hurricane 3 NEO, Donic Bluefire M2. 

I'm seeking to improve my FH game in particular - strong spinny open-ups, counterlooping and powerlooping.

Any rubber ideas/recommendations that go well together with this blade?

Thank you

Korbel himself uses T80 on both sides. I’ve tried D05, D09c, T05, T80 for some time and I preferred T80.  To make things more complicated I've previously had 2 Korbels at the same time and one is more stiff and less flexy than the other. The stiffer blade was good with T05 where the more flexy blade (higher throw) didn’t suit T05 as much. Overall you can’t go wrong with T80.

I say medium-hard to hard rubbers are very compatible with this blade. Chinese type of rubbers are also excellent. If you are concerned about too much tack not resulting in adequate speed levels, it can just mean you should optimize your strokes better to get the most out of your shots, which is not entirely bad. Otherwise the hybrid rubbers should still present sufficient speed.

I would be interested in how this Carbon to Korbel experiment goes after you have given it some time. Maybe in a new post?
