    Posted: 04/19/2019 at 12:56pm
Hi,

I currently use FX-P as my BH rubber on a Korbel and I really like how easy it is to open up against backspin and the really high spinny loops I can do with it. However, it just doesn't last and I cant afford to keep changing it every couple of months.

Can anyone recommend any rubbers that are similar to FX-P so can produce really high spin loops, easy to lift backspin, is good at blocking and doesn't feel too soft and mushy, but lasts much longer, preferably one whole season or at least half a season?

I am considering Nittaku Fastarc C-1, has anyone tried this?

Thanks in advance!

C1 is not very soft but is worth trying. It may feel too hard for you though.

I would prefer a cheaper alternative to the tenergy series.

What is the durability of Rakza 7 soft like?

Also wouldn't Rakza 7 (not soft) and vega pro be too hard?

I don't mind using a harder rubber as long as it doesn't feel rock hard, I have tried Xiom Omega V Europe and that felt nice on BH but not spinny enough compared to FX-p.

How spinny is C-1 and is it much harder than FX-P?

It has the same level of spin, just a little bit harder, softer than el-p

What is the speed like compared to FX-P and blocking? Also is it easy to lift heavy backspin with? Also how long does it last?

They're about the same speed, perhaps Select is a bit faster and FX-P is a little better for fast blocking.
Select lasts at leat 4 months with pretty much the same characteristics (I've used both at backhand)
I like them both not at max thickness, ie., I prefer Select at 2,1mm or 1,9mm and FX-P at 1,9mm

That's great, thanks for your help! Sounds just like what I am looking for. I am the same I use FX-P at 1.9mm. So Select blocks just as well as FX-P and it is just as easy to lift backspin?

Yes, but it is perhaps just a little bit harder
