729 FX Lightening - light with outstanding control and spin


Having picked up table tennis again after a 20 year break, I've been trying to settle on a good combination for myself. Forehand rubber should be spinny but with good control. After trying out a number of inverted rubbers, all promising 'outstanding' spin and control, I've decided FX Lightening is the one that lives up to its billing.

This rubber has fantastic control. It is hardly tacky at all, but it generates more spin than all my other tacky rubbers with mechanical spin. To take full advantage of this you need fast racquet speed and I would suggest using a light blade (it works a dream with Donic Cayman). Practicing 'brushing loops' against my coach, this was the only rubber that could trouble him. The lack of tackiness is really only an issue when it comes to generating spin on serve, but it can still do well with proper technique.

With the soft sponge, the racquet has excellent dwell time and gives you a real feel for every shot.
