Hi,

I'm looking for an anti wich is good for chopping far away from table as a classic defender and wich is good for attacking ball close to the table. Sponge should be very soft.
What would you offer? Donic Anti classic or Nittaku best anti? What is the differenc between these 2 rubbers?
Thank you.
Csaba


Tibhar Ellen Defensive is my own favorite. Slow, enough grip to make your own (back)spin, not enough to be bothered by incoming spin, high control, nicely priced as well. It needs a blade with some speed or some weight if it is to be used for attack. On really slow blades I think it is too slow to be used more than say three meters away from the table, but just about perfect for a mix of defense and attack from mid-distance.

Donic Anti Classic is a very neutral kind of anti, not (very) sensitive to incoming spin, but not capable of making significant spin itself. It also quite fast for an anti. Good for attack (without much disruption, though) or for passive defense on a slow blade away for the table; less good if you want to vary your chops.

Nittaku Best Anti is faster than Tibhar Ellen Defensive, but for the rest rather similar. Better for attack with speed, even if it is a bit slower than the Donic Anti Classic.

Another good one is Stiga Energy Absorber. It is a kind of cross between the Tibhar and the Nittaku as concerns speed and spin, feels harder, but offers good possibilities for spin-variation in your chops, and is rather disruptive when used to attack with.

You might consider using one of the slower antis on an ALL frame (or ALL-). It has to have great control but its extra speed will offer better possibilities for a varied defensive game. Classic ALL frames are best for anti, as a rule. Stiga Classic Allround, or Stiga Allround WRB, or Yasaka Sweden Classic, etc.

Hi Kess,

Thank you for your answer. Then I choose Nittaku. I have tried Tibhar Ellen Def and OFF too. Both of them suited for me, but they made my racket very heavy and it was impossible to take off from the blade.

Yes, but taking off the Tibhar anti is doable when you glue with rubber glue. Water glue is disastrous... As for the weight, the Nittaku is available in 1.3 mm, which is the most light-weight and the most suitable for long-distance defence. But Juic Neo Anti is even more light-weight, very soft as well, and suitable for defense as well as attack.
