Oh, I don't know. I think what I'm saying here, basically, is that in the Unicorn I think I've found the holy grail for LP bh blocking/attacking/control and yet the FH leaves me (again, literally) flat...yearning for something more dangerous?

So, my question is what, exactly? I don't know...does anyone have any suggestions? What is the fastest FH rubber on the market? Is there another blade like the Unicorn with a punchier FH?

I played today first time with Unicorn, Tibhar Aurus max and Hellfire X ox. Like you said, the BH feels very nice and disturbance with weird trajectories are there. :clap:

On the other hand I had similar problems with FH: it's too slow and I don't like feel of it. :( (Couple of days ago I lost against a player with similar Unicorn combination - he was hitting ripping forehand winners from left and right... :swear:)


Tibhar Aurus is not a good match with Unicorn. An excellent combo played by me is with Dignics 09C. Generally Unicorn matches well with hard fast and tacky rubbers. The tensors like Donic Blue Grip will play well on Unicorn. My team mate loves Donic Blue Grip R1 on Unicorn.

Thanks, that's valuable information I was hoping for. :up: Aurus works well with my Joola CWX blade. In Unicorn Aurus is too spin sensitive, too dead in passive play and inaccurate in top spin play. Ripping FH is possible, but half power loops seem to be too easy for the opponent. Dignics might be too expensive, but I will be looking for harder alternative to Aurus.

I bought the Joola Golden Tango PS max for the FH to go with Unicorn blade and HFx ox. It's a nice match for modern defence with great control, if some added spin sensitivity don't bother you. JGT PS has very high arc, but loops dip well.

Strenghts of JGT PS are 1) Underspins, very spinny and easy to control, 2) Snake type of tricky sidespin lifts :rofl: , 3) Fishing, good control and huge kick from the table, 4) Conterloops, grabs the ball well with long dwell time and loops dip nicely and 5) Hou Yingchao style FH hook-loops are possible with best sidespin that I have seen.

Possible problems of JGT PS are 1) High arc shots like blocks or half speed loops don't pressure opponent enough 2) It's spin sensitive and sometimes it's difficult to to close the blade enough 3) Overall speed is like all+, so you are better to use powerfull chinese whole arm loop, 4) Half armspeed shots might be too easy for the opponent, 5 Direct shots like smashes and drives might not be most reliable weapons.

So, if you like spinny loops, defending, strong underspins, controlled plays and sidespins JGT PS is good for you, but if you are more bang bang style player who likes blocking and speed more than spin, JGT PS might not be right for you.
