I appeal to you to know your opinion about Tibhar MX-S rubber. For what style works best. Also if it is used near the table and in the middle distance.

MX-S is a hard low-throw rubber similar to the best Chinese ones. IMO it is designed for close to the table game.

Really? Similar to Chinese rubber? Hmmm...

I used to play with MX-S 1.9-2.0 mm on my FH before I started trying out hybrid rubbers.

MX-S has the hardest sponge among the Evolution series (and thus is the heaviest one, I believe). Due to that, it isn't as springy as MX-P and feels a bit closer to the hybrid rubbers - although the throw is still higher than theirs. I feel that it allows for a little bit more spin that MX-P - but again, less than tacky rubbers do. You might have to adjust your FH loop a little if coming from a springy tensor rubber. Both over the table and middle distance play is good, in my opinion, I didn't feel any lack of power.

I think it could work as a BH rubber, too, if you like the harder feeling.

Monster Spin - is the first thing that comes to mind, when I think of MX-S...

A pretty demanding rubbers, in terms of footwork, action, technique... etc... Not for players, who stretch for a shot (like myself)...

Good at lifting back-spin... I like the way it blocks, but once again, not if you stretch for the ball... Your footwork needs to be good.

I agree with the above - definitely more demanding than MX-P.
Feels hard and requires almost ideal angle of the racket on the ball contact - otherwise you will hit out or net.
I tried to use it for a while on FH and BH interchangeably but gave up and went back to MX-P, because I was just losing a bit of control. I didn't want to spend more time on adjustments. For someone who always played Europeans style rubbers MX-S may be challenging.

After playing KTL Rapid Speed (my first rubber and long-time favourite, now it feels hard and lifeless like brick) and Yasaka Rising Dragon on the same blades Tibhar Evolution MX-S does not feel hard like old-style Chinese.

MX-S sponge is medium hardness. At least 1.8 version clicks like soft tensor during flat hits.
Slow loops are difficult with MX-S hardness but wristy slaps are effective and spiny.

So I think it is possible to play MX-S on BH if BH is your strong wing. MX-S is not forgiving rubber to cover weak side.
