I'm switching to EL-S on backhand too.
just got to decide now between Stratus Powerwood and Force Pro blue
think it might be the stratus as EL-S is fairly medium hard sponge, so the flex might help with loops.

I tried the EL-S with a couple of layers of booster last night, It felt extremely close to the t80 on my backhand.

I have el-s on my backhand donic true carbon and it feels a bit too hard for me. Should I try fx-p or would another brand be preferable.

It's the only rubber I've used on the true carbon which is new to me as well.  For a few years I used Joola Rhyzym 420 on a Rossi Emotion but I found the rossi to be too light and unstable. 

Then was using adidas P3 on backhand of NCT maplewood V.  Looks like P3 and the 420 have similar hardness. 

I have El-s on the NCT maplewood backhand as well and it feels softer than on the true carbon but I haven't really been using that setup.  Using the true carbon.

Made a lot of changes all at once.  I was playing at a crappy place with no space so was always close to the table and using celluloid balls. 
Now I'm playing with more space, plastic balls, and a fast blade so it's a lot of adjustment to make. 

Just lost confidence in my backhand, I used to have a great one when I was right on the table but now I find myself backing up and that requires a loop instead of more of a drive.

Weeble, can't help exactly the way you want because I haven't played with the FXP thought I have played with the ELS alot and have two DTC.  From what you have said I suggest from one of the combos MAXXX-P for your BH.  good control and spin, adequate driving power and should be close to softness to you Rhyzm.  I estimate the FXP is softer than that range.

Is there just one kind of Maxxx-p?  I guess you mean just different thicknesses. 

Looks good but not cheap...

Maxxx-p is a different rubber compared to els. Els is spinnier and feels harder.

yogi, would you agree you need good technique to get the spin out of el-s, probably because of the hardness?
