Tibhar Evolution EL-P
Evolution EL-P from TIBHAR is the most elastic rubber of the Evolution rubber series. EL-P with its medium sponge perfectly fits in between the harder MX-P and the softer FX-P. The selected pimple geometry of the elastic EL-P does not even come close to the other Evolution versions in terms of Spin and speed. Very precise and powerful strokes can be realised at half distance or at the table. Evolution EL-P: chosen by most of the Topspin players for whom the MX version is too hard and the FX version too soft, however putting the emphasis on rotation and power!
PRO-TENSION rubber surface is grippy and rich in spin, with perfect elasticity and stability.
RED POWER SPONGE is bright red, open porous, and spectacular. Adapts perfectly to the situation.

Reviews of Tibhar Evolution EL-P (30)
Not very spinny or controllable, but rather it is exactly like tibhar present it. Meant for direct speed.
But for a backhand softsponge rubber it is ludicrously heavy, sometimes lets balls slip, and is not durable enough. So I never bothered with a second one and bought several sheets of palio ak47 blue for the same money.
The evolution series have a disturbing tendency to break apart and fray at the edges so beware.
SPIN: Muchisimo especially in the type of technique, is perceived as the ball accelerates on the court opposing putting very difficult opponent to return the ball underspins both topspin and situations.
BLOCK: Wonderful, control comes out this time, you can place the ball where you want taking care of the angle of the racquet, you can make passive blocks or punch blocks very easily.
SPEED: it seems to me a quick rubber maybe a little less or almost like TENERGY 05
Topspin: As much SPIN comment before puts everything depends on the technique, I am using the backhand and I have good wrist movement and feel that thanks to the mixture control with SPiN my attacks have greatly improved. You want to make a soft attack with much spin or a strong attack or Smash. with this rubber you will not have any problem with that.
CONTROL: This section rubber seemed to me better than TENERGY 05 and the 64 to the speed and spin that is, control is high, very high.
SERVES: As I said before the rubber has a lot SPIN, but sometimes I feel that it is very bouncy in Serves, one thing is certain they are going to spin a lot.
THROW ANGLE: Many people say it is medium high, medium and for me it often seems a bit linear when I want to give great strength to blow, nothing a technical adjustment can not fix.
A rubber highly recommended good speed, excellent control, precise blocks, attacks with much spin, spin in Serves much. and especially all for a great price
I had the opportunity to play with this rubber for more than six months now, usually 8 hours a week including routine training, free play and competitive events. I used it on two blades Donic Waldner World Champion '89 and Butterfly Liu Shiwen on my BH (MX-P on FH). I tried the rubber unboosted and boosted too.
First of all the tubber has a nice faint red small pored sponge that is medium hard. The topsheet feels grippy but not tacky. The rubber has a medium throw with a tempo, but the dwell time is very nice. I would love to say that it is comparable to the Donic Bluefire M2 rubber. To compare them I must say, that EL-P is a tad faster, less dwell, lifts less, bit more harsh and lower delltime. To compare it to the Butterfly Tenergy 64 I can clearly say, that T64 has a bit more control and a softer feel, yet the speed is the same. This feeling is due to the EL-P-s harder topsheet maybe. To clarify the scale of these differences, that I highlighted, they don't really matter if you are playing a spin oriented attacking game. When it comes down to passive play and fine touching the ball M2 behaves the most forgiving, while EL-P is the less forgiving, but to point it out again if you hit your balls with average technique these differences will not matter.
Blade selection is an important factor for a rubber and vica-versa. EL-P is working fine on flexible blades like Liu Shiwen and does not feel mushy on stiff blades like Waldner World Champ '89.
When we speak of durability, my etalon is MX-P and older sheets (2010) of Tenergy 05-s. With this routine I mentioned I could play a year and a half with occasional re-boostering the sheets happily and effectively. Well EL-P wears off a tad faster, when the top layer of the rubber sheet gets used. This time some boosting has to be done, and at the same time the rubber surface most be given a thin layer of oil, to regain some grip. After treatment the sheet is ready to go for 2-3 months.
less speed than T05 and T05fx,
less spin than T05 and T05fx,
more control than T05 and T05fx,
less sensitive to spin than T05 and T05fx,,
after playing mxp my expectations were bigger
I can block against loops and smashes more easily than with the t05 I previously used for bh.
(Btw I just DIDN'T KNOW that t05 is actually for FH and I know it NOW)
Strong smashs can also easily be made.
Control is very good here.
