    Posted: 06/21/2018 at 5:19am
looking for lightweight bh rubber, hope to hear some suggestions
my blade is 15.6cmx15.2cm
would be great if the rubber is less than 50g after cutting
i would like the rubber to make my banana flicks easier since using 729 super fx is pretty hard since my wrist gets abit sore and if i incorporate arm movement the ball shoots out of the table
also i notice my rpb loops are not getting over the net when i use superfx
if by reading this makes it feel that i am at fault and my equipment is not to blame, pls give some tips on making my rpb better


Rubbers currently on my radar:
fastarc s-1
vega japan
ventus soft

thank you for reading :)

Someone suggested I try Palio AK47 Blue. It's super cheap, super light, soft and so far I'm really liking it for my rpb.

Ak47 blue or yellow.

In addition to being very spinny and very fast, it's one of the lightest inverted rubbers in existence and costs abot $10 on ali express with free worldwide shipping.

It's a no brainer really.

I use yellow now which is a bit harder sponged because blue proved a tad too bouncy for me, though in all other respects they're exactly the same.

The only difference is the sponge density.
Blue is 36-38 while yellow is about 42.

They both grip the ball excellently but blue has more speed and spin when you get a lower energy ball and yellow is stronger and spinnier with slightly higher energy balls, while a bit slower with low energy ones.

Blue is easier for looping backspin because the sponge is less dense and also thicker, and given backspin balls generally arent very high energy
