Maybe Hexer Grip is the best solution. Hardness is 45° and some people said that the Hexer Powergrip/Grip series are more or less the old Rasant.

I agree with ELS, mxs feels harder.

I will go the EL-P route. Decided the MX sponge seemed a bit much, so ordered a sheet of EL-S as well. 

I didn't know about Hexer powergrip - that looks harder than Rasant - Hexer powergrip SFX looks softer. 

Perhaps Andro Hexer Grip (matches the 45 sponge) would be ideal?

Stick to Andro.
Hexer powergrip and powergrip sfx are the same as rasant...

Thank you. My gut instinct was that EL-P would be similar. I was wondering about MX-S though. The original Rasant has a thick topsheet and amazing durability, so the comments about MX-S are a bit of a turnoff :(



Forgot to mention I am a fan of the original Rasant series too - especially the Grip and Powergrip.
Not thrilled about Rasanter series.

Give the MX-S a try, you just might like even though it doesn't last as long. It's performance that counts. Then you might get hooked. This and the EL-P are in your wheelhouse Smile

Disclaimer:
I hated Rasanter

I loved the thick top sheet original, plain Rasant. 

I loved the high throw and the monster spin and medium
Sponge of Rasant. 

I loved how strong Rasant makes service spin.  

Is there a thicker top sheet Evolution that feels and plays similar?

Thanks!
