Blade: Palio V1
FH: Xiom Omega V Tour
BH: Xiom Omega V Tour
Xiom Vega Tour Blade.
I just bought that blade, but need second opinion on the most suitable rubbers for it.
I am mainly split between Xiom Omega V Asia and Xiom Omega V Tour.
My play spinny positional game near the net and fast loops for the win right when I get the chance. I almost never play more than 1 meter behind the table. Although I block on my backhand quite often, I mainly loop and flick on both forehand and backhand so I play the same rubber on both sides.
I've recently read that most people prefer a softer rubber (Like XOVT) on their backhand and a harder one (Like XOVA) on their forehand, but my main concern is the hinoki outer ply and how well it would go with XOVT. Also I don't know how high the throw angle of the blade is and I don't want a too straight or a too high trajectory on my shots.

Don't think batwings would cut it, doesn't quite fit the soft description

Does the Batwings pair well with the Hinoki outer ply?

I would advise trying the Omega V Tour rubber that you are used to initially. This will minimize the variables, and give you a starting point from which you can assess the blade. FWIW, I found the Vega Tour blade to be very deceptive. It doesn't seem super quick, but then you find the ball missing the end of the table. (Which is why I went to much less bouncy rubber on mine). Of the two rubbers you mention, I would probably eventually choose the OV Asia.

Aren't you supposed to match a soft outer ply with a hard rubber? :lol:
