*SHOCK* Chinese!!! Not cheap, though. Maybe I should give it a try after all.

"Backside" gives me the sniggers. I keep imagining those Minions repeating "Backside" to each other and sniggering... :lol:

Remember what I keep saying about the differences between rubbers being subtle? I think this illustrates the point - you'd actually have to THINK about it, even if you've played with a lot of these rubbers.

I though it was just a high control and slow 'budget rubber'.

That it is, but it is also quite tacky, which is why I think it is most comparable to Tacikness D.

I don't recall tackiness C or D being very tacky at all :P

Definitely not tacky compared to some Chinese rubbers, but it was the first one I was aware of that could pick up the ball. (The ball WAS lighter, then...)

Incidentally - has anyone figured out the differences between the Rasants, Roxons and Hexers yet? When would one use a Rasant instead of a Roxon or a Hexer instead of a Rasant? The more I look at Andro's catalog the more confused I get.. :lol:

Roxon had a harder topsheet than Hexer didn't it?

I haven't played Hexer, but you have Baracuda and Bluefire M2 listed as possible substitutes.
I have owned both of the Donic rubbers that I just mentioned and they do play 'similar-ish'.
But the M2 has at least a gear or maybe two more in the speed department.
Spin maybe close, it's hard to tell as the baracuda has a higher spin to speed ratio that gives it a feeling of higher spin.
The M2 has much more catapult over the baracuda as well.

I know that this thread is about andro rubbers, so maybe someone that has played all three can corelate my findings with the hexer?

So nothing from Andro compares to the Tibhar Evolution line? Not even Rasant Powergrip? :lol:
