Blade: Primorac AND Timo Boll OFF –
Forehand Rubber: Primorac (Sriver FX) Timo (Tenergy 25x)
Backhand Rubber: Primorac (Sriver FX) Timo (Tenergy 25x)

Question: I have these two paddles. I am wondering, all things being equal, what has a bigger effect on speed: the rubber speed or the speed of the paddle?
I am trying to figure out the best set up to run given the 2 blades and 4 rubbers I have. the timo boll off- combined with the tenergy is fast. Against better players I struggle with control. My Primorac is slower but I have more control. I was wondering which would be a better mix of speed AND control: the Primorac with the Tenergy or the Timo Boll off- with the Sriver.

Coach Dan Seemiller, Ask The ExpertsAnswer: Hi Jon,

I would recommend the Primorac with the Tenergy 25-FX.
Tenergy 25-FX is fast and the Primorac blade has excellent control. This would seem to be a perfect combination. Of course you need to test them out as personal feel and playing experience are the best answer.

Good luck and enjoy!
