very good rubber for player bloque
Review helpful?    Yes | No

I used this rubber on my BH with a Nittaku Septear blade(OFF) for about 1 year before I changed. I found this rubber to be the best do-it-all rubber I have ever tried, it was really easy to block loops that had lots of topspin and it was fairly easy to create spin as well. Compared to the Tenergy 64 I had on my FH the Acuda was superior, it had better spin, control, durability, the only thing that Tenergy was better at was smashing the ball. Weirdly enough the Tenergy was not faster by a whole lot. I occasionally tried the rubber on my FH and it was super comfortable to loop and attack with. So far it has been the best rubber I have used, but I do nothave loads of other rubbers to compare it to since I am only 13, I have played for 6 years so I still know my fair amount of table tennis.

I played it in 1.8mm on FH and BH on a stiga all around classic. It was my first tensor rubbers. I choose this one over the Desto series because i've heard that the first generation rubbers (desto) were not so much mastered and that the new generation rubbers such as acuda are more balanced and stable. I've played a bit with some Destos (F3, F2) and i think to remember that they felt more bouncy. Anyway i really like this acuda S3 and it was really easy to get my habit with it. Very good spin and control, easy short touch play. Really no problem ! You can drive and loop with it, it's good. Maybe 1.8mm is a bit too thin for looping and i was thinking to then play S2 2mm and S3 2mm. To conclude it was a very good first tensor rubbers and i was very happy with it (At the time, i played since almost 2 years. Maybe it would have been too fast for a first rubbers)
