Why do anti sheets have to be replaced if you are looking for slickness on the top sheet?

Apparently these new-fangled super-slick antis become less super-slick after just a short while.

Traditional antis start to lose grip and become more frictionless. So your hits would become less reliable as a result and the blocking angle changes.

With frictionless antis... they start to acquire MORE grip from dirt and surface deteriorating. So the blocks have less reversal and in essence they begin acting more like traditional antis.

One becomes the other over time! Just get a friend who uses the style you don't, then swap after a while :lol:

Frictionless antis often comes with a dampening sponge. That one can loose its powers (eating speed) after awhile and become less dampening.

I would agree with Def-attack as the same is true for the Dr. Neubauer antis with thick sponge. After some time the rubber will become a little faster depending on how much you play and it might be time to change to a new rubber. I would say it lasts at least as long as Tenergy rubber does. Despite of what Iskandar says (I doubt he ever played frictionless anti but I might be wrong) they do not become less slick after some time, at least not the Dr. N antis I have played (I have tested all of them) and the ABS and ABS2 antis actually become slicker with time.

The most recent antis from DMS become slightly less slippery after a month or so and after about 3-4 months of playing 2-3 times every week at least I feel I need to change.

If you want massive spin reversal there are better blades than Joo. Hard, stiff blades, perhaps with carbon (no balsa) are good. But if you don’t have other blades go with the Joo, it’s bot worth buying a blade and a rubber just for trying.
