Sorry if I missed it, but are there any downsides to the new ax version compared to regular Moristo?

I still have a lot of experimentation to do with it. I played with it again tonight (team matches), but the slower blade really bothered me. If I'm going again tomorrow (just practice), then I might glue the Ax on the opposite side of the blade so the comparison is more apples to apples (still 2.2mm vs 2.0mm though).

The Ax is a lot more sensitive to incoming spin and there is no deceptiveness to it at all. I think nobody I was playing with today even would have noticed I played with pips if I hadn't told them.

I have returned to Nittaku Moristo SP Ax, having completed testing of Andro Blowfish+ and Joola Express Ultra. Considering testing Spectol RED and Victas 102 next..

I glued my Ax on the opposite side of my regular Moristo yesterday for a practice session.

The regular being 2.2mm and the Ax 2.0mm.

I believe I was wrong in my initial review. The soft wood that I was testing Ax on had more impact than I expected. On my Innerforce ZLC it felt less sensitive to incoming spin (I couldn't tell which Moristo was more sensitive), but strangely enough also less precise.

Swapping back and forth between the two rubbers during rallies were quite telling, and I *really* wish they had been the same sponge thickness too.

Overall, surprisingly, I much preferred the regular Moristo. It was faster, but also more precise. The two aspects I want from SP. I was hitting BH drives with it that wasn't working out as well with the Ax.

SP really is changing how I play. The harder rubber on Ax meant I had to hit the ball more than guiding it in a direction. Like baseball instead of bowling. With inverted rubber I much prefer the harder rubber; but apparently not with SPs. I'm guessing this has to do with the stroking of an inverted rubber vs the flat hitting of SPs.

I know that is almost completely the reverse of what I wrote earlier. I was very surprised by this myself. Maybe I am no good at reviewing rubbers :)

I thought the Ax is supposed to be a bit faster than the regular Moristo SP but the difference in sponge thickness could have been a factor.

For sure it did. I am very tempted to buy another sheet in 2.2mm; but they aren't cheap, and I'm almost out of glue. :lol:

Doesn't Mima-chan use this, or does she use the regular Moristo SP?

Kinda interesting that there's Moristo inverted, Moristo short pips and Moristo long pips. Looking through the LARC, there's about 8 of the things. There's even a Moristo 44 (which I'll bet is pips out 1.5mm sponge, for the 44mm ball).
