Butterfly Table Tennis Question and Answer Question: Looking to upgrade both my forehand and backhand rubber. I like chopping and backhand play. What rubbers do you suggest? Price is not an issue. If I buy an expensive rubber, how do I maintain it? Answer:

This Ask the Experts question was answered by Lady Ruano. She is a coach at the Broward Table Tennis Club in Davie, Florida. Coach Ruano’s response is as follows:
Hi Christopher,  Thank you for your inquiry.  From what you describe of your way of playing, I consider that you can replace your backhand rubber with Tackiness Chop II 1.9 mm, which is an advanced version of the one you currently use. You will have a better spin on the ball.  For your forehand, if you want to increase the spin on the ball a little, making your backspin stronger, I recommend using the Tackifire Drive 2.1 mm. This is a soft and very elastic rubber that will help you maintain control.  Do not forget to clean your rubbers before and after your practices and games with our specialized products: Spin Refresh & Rubber Care Sponge. Something that can help you take care of your rubbers is to use Adhesive Protect Film III.  Successes in your practices and competitions!  Best regards,  Lady Ruano Coach ITTF Olympic Player Stay “In The Loop” with Butterfly professional table tennis equipment, table tennis news, table tennis technology, tournament results, and We Are Butterfly players, coaches, clubs and more.
