Hey there,

Does anyone from the Bay area know what rubber the main Swan Warriors players like Tao Wenzhang or Bob Chen are using?  From watching the Joola Teams I can tell that they aren't using Hurricane 3 blue sponge (can't blame them, great rubber but bubbles almost immediately if you're a hard looper type). Are they just using regular orange sponge H3 Neo? Something else?

Orange sponge, right? At least that's what it looks like.

Thanks! I'm using orange sponge myself after bubbling blue sponge H3 and deciding it's just not worth the money to buy blue sponge every week (or twice a week sometimes even).  I was just wondering if non-national team Chinese who don't get free blue sponge H3 out there found a replacement for blue sponge that plays close but does not bubble. Orange sponge is great, but it's a completely different sponge and hence plays differently. I love it, but it *is* different.  It's harder, heavier, less elastic and becomes *much* thicker when boosted (blue sponge "magically" stays thin after boosting...that's part of the reason why it's so popular with the Chinese national team...they can boost the heck out of it and it will most likely still stay below or right at 4mm).  The blue sponge has more power and more spin though.
