I'm seriously looking for new rubber and i admire with 729 rubber and the problem come when the ball now a a bit bigger (40mm) so not suitable for me anymore. I was using normal 729 rubber last time when the ball still not 40mm but when it has changed it become SLOW but still great in control and smashing in any distance close or long.And i notice that the sponge it's hard and i like it.

cole :"Well, if you like the harder rubber but just need more speed, consider 40h, 729-2german, or 729-3"

So it's time to change so i have question to ask for my reference
when i'm buying new rubber with intention to get same great control,spin and smashing in any distance.

1.What's the different 729,729-2 and 729-3

Cole: 729 and -2 are pretty similar. -2 was the first step away from traditional 729 and toward more euro play. But still hard and sticky.

-3 is much less sticky. It comes on a pink japanese sponge that's fairly firm (around 42) and fairly fast without glue.

2. What is so good with 729 Cream rubber? dont understand why is called cream..

Nothing really in terms of the topsheet. It just comes on that really good sponge called magic red. In fact, I was the first to put the two together and did a lot to popularize it in the us. Well, one of the first at least.

I have no idea why it's called cream."

3. If im like to play on close-to-table.. which sponge should i use soft or hard using 729 topsheet?

cole:"Harder favors close to table."

4. Which is better in ALL 729 series including normal geospin and geospin tacky for all rounder and more on close-to-table player?

cole: "geo is more euro and softer. more for speed glue. from what you've said I'd look at 729-2 german or 729-3 depending on how sticky you want the rubber to be."

Thank you for any response.
