You could try the new Spinlord Wyvern in 1.8mm or 2mm. more spinny than Waran but less nasty

Standard firestorm is supposed to have a fair bit of disruptive effect like Waran, but not so much the soft version

Tried Wyvern. Not sure if it has more spin in average hands.
Waran1's sponge is much softer. Wyvern's topsheet is not that different and the sponge is harder and less elastic.

I've also tried the Wyvern, and I agree that it doesn't seem to be more spinny than the Waran, despite what Spinlord's saying. Although the Wyvern's sponge is much harder, I didn't find any significant differences in playing characteristics compared to the Waran, somehow.

Classic sign that your skills have surpassed the minor differences provided by equipment. Congratulations!

I preferred the feeling of the first Waran. I think Waran 1 has higher throw as I cannot adapt myself to Wyvern (frequent net balls).

Thanks, lasta! Hope you're right. ;)

Omut, I think it makes sense since the Wyvern's sponge is harder and thus probably has less "tension" effect than the Waran's.

I decided to stop testing of Wyvern 2.0 red. I feel that it is nor faster nor spinnier then Waran 1, probably quit opposite.
The throw is lower that makes the rubber more difficult to use.

Blue sponge is very fragile so it is impossible to remove the Spinlord Wyvern rubber without damaging it and even leaving parts of the sponge on the wood (I used old VOC glue). I do not like the new sponge at all.

The new topsheet is nice but the difference is insignificant especially considering much higher price.
