Joola Express Ultra seems to be discontinued - I have contacted all available shops and they have all confirmed that this rubber is available only in 2.0/MAX width and Joola isn't supplying any other versions anymore. I need 1.5mm in red. What alternatives are there? I have plenty of short pimple rubbers in my collection but all of them were missing something - I really loved Joola Express Ultra. It somehow felt like a normal (and even in 1.5mm fast!) inverted rubber and yet I was able to smash chopped/flat balls and I was able to return serves without any issues (which is a miracle for a bad player like me). I have a new 2.0mm version but it's too fast for me and also the disrupted effect seems to be gone.

Is there any alternative that is very close to Joola Express Ultra? Good control, good for smashing chopped/flat balls, fast even with thin sponge and with at least *some* disrupted effects that short pimples do? I'm playing close to the table so I love fast blocking of topspins and I love smashing flat balls.

(I THINK I'm currently playing with a Donic Epox Power Carbon blade - I used to have Stiga Hypertech CR 35/45 before and Joola Express Ultra worked fine on both blades).

(Also please forgive me for possible mistakes, I'm not a native English speaker and I'm not much familiar with English terminology when it comes to table tennis equipment :).
