My 'new' hardbat arrived yesterday - Dr Evil on a Joola Basic blade, for starters. I played for about 3 hours with it yesterday. After a few hours I was getting used to it. It certainly doesn't chop anything like a LP. However I found with a fierce digging action I could get quite a bit of spin.

Has anyone actually tried playing with Andro Classic? Or does anyone have some sitting around they aren't using they would trade or sell cheap?

I already tried Peace Keeper and Dr Evil, and both seemed pretty weird to hit with, so neither my forehand nor backhand were even close to working.

You can get lots of spin with Dr Evil. I've played against (not used) Butterfly orthodox and found it has quite some reversal when playing against it.

I can't chop to save my life, so I have zero experience there, but I know that one of the best hardbat players in the world (video is somewhere in the massive mnnb blog archive, he's basically a chopper) uses Yasaka Cobalt. It's a pretty thick rubber.

I've been getting the hang of Dr Evil. I find it's pretty good away from the table, which surprised me. I can get decent underspin. What I find I really struggle with is to counter topspin with topspin - so I block, push or chop. That's fine, but makes any counter-drive very tricky to achieve.
