Hello everyone! I have doubts about what rubber to use in my Stiga Emerald VPS blade. I am a left-handed player who tends to play from a distance. As for the game near the table, it is rather quick, that is, service with effect and if the opponent raises the ball enough, I finish. If the opponent tends to the rally I tend to go back and hit mid-distance with effect (usually I do side spin). I currently use Gold Arc 8 in FH and Xushaofa LSZ NEO in BH. I have been recommended Tibhar MX-S, Skyline 3 Neo and Hurricane 8 but I am very hesitant. I accept any recommendation.

What's wrong with the current setup?

My philosophy.. just buy something, if it works it works, if it doesn't, it doesn't (sell it off, give it away, put it in your storage box, buy something else that is different), but if you choose something reasonable in the first place it'll work anyhow, 95% of the time. There isn't just one rubber that will work, any of dozens will. Don't worry about spending tons of money having to try a dozen different rubbers, you won't have to (see the previous sentence). If something is wrong, it's more likely to be the blade than the rubber.

What's a VPS Emerald, by the way?

Tibhar Evolution MX-P is great from distance (I used to play with it on a Stiga Infinity VPS). Joola Rhyzer 48 is even better.
