Hi,

I was asked a question the other day of which I had no answer: What rubber today has both a very-similar-to Dignics top sheet combined with a very-similar-to Tenergy 05 Hard sponge hardness, a sponge harder than Dignics 09c?

Thank you in advance.

Rakza Z Extra Hard has a similar top sheet to 09C  and a harder sponge.  Just so you know 09C has a harder sponge than T05 Hard. 09C is 44 degree and T05H is 43 degree. Regular Spring Sponge X used in D05 etc... is 40 degree on Bfly’s scale

Thanks so much.  My friend was using 05 Hard on his forehand; switched to 09c and said it had, for him, a softer feel.  He loves the topsheet of 09c but also the hardness of the feel he had with 05 Hard.  I do not know about other experiences.  It may be attributable to his techniques.

Thanks

Hardness feel is a matter of sponge hardness and topsheet combined.  Hard sponge with soft top will feel softer on slower hits, even if the sponge is harder than another rubber. Many of the current hybridrubbers  have soft topsheets.Siegerpk50, golden Tango etc. 

If he wants hard on hard, go for Nittany hurricane 3 blue turbo
