Hi, 

I don't find BD rubbers of good quality, with tackiness. The last ones that I got were without tackiness (!!), only my old models were with tackiness.

Someone knows where can I get tacky ones?.

If it is not possible, what rubber is equivalent to a tacky BD 40º or harder?

Many Thanks in advance.

Have you tried the apollo 5? Did you get the dipper from me?

Forget the BD... it annoyed me when it changed properties after like one (1) playing session.
Get something else...
(1) Juic SBA (Fl, 85 g) with Bluefire JP3 (red max) on FH and 0.6 mm DR N Desperado on BH; (2) Yinhe T7 (Fl, 87 g) with Bluefire M3 (red 2.0) on FH and 0.6 mm 755 on BH.

Thanks for the advice, I didn't know apollo 5 and I have just found good references of it.
I bought many BD rubbers from differents sites, I don't remember if one was from you

I haven't heard anything about the Apollo 5 and I see it's new on your site (or at least new to me as I haven't bought anything in a while).
Is it similar to a 39 degree Big Dipper?
How would you compare the 2?
I probably shouldn't switch, but curiosity might get the best of me.

sorry, I thought you want a more or less galaxy 40+ rubber. If you want tacky rubber with galaxy's max tense, may be Moon Pro 39. However, you need to boost it.

My bad, galaxy indeed has a new rubber with tacky top-sheet and max tense sponge. It is Galaxy Jupiter 2.

@OP, Have you considered Gold Arc 8?  It's not tacky, but it plays similar enough to BD and definitely last longer .... 3 months (or more if you take good care of it).  A little bit faster than BD.  Similar amount of spin.  Similar control (both very good). Medium throw.  Great all around rubber.
