Hi guys. Thought I would reply here first instead of making a completely new thread.

Can anyone tell me what happens to the abs 2 evo with time, does it gain grip? Lose reversal? Become faster?

I am very reluctant to put time into this rubber if i have to replace it every 4 months or so. It plays gazing but I'd rather just use Dtecs since it seems that lasts a lifetime lol

P.S I active bump/hit quite often and usually/plan to play often vs pretty decent players around 2000-2400 in the future including a bit of training with them once or twice a week.

Played around 1month with the ABS2 Evo and it was still in a very good shape. I guess after some time it will begin to gain grip (and so lose some reversal) and will become faster.

I have heard the Dtecs lasts a lifetime. In fact, the more you play with, the more toxic it will become. Ox is better than with sponge if you are chasing the best lifetime because a sponge never lasts a lifetime, it will always be damaged at some point.

1 month is too little to tell but I have read after 3 months or so it needs replacing which is just £$£$ I'm not willing to spend. But I was hoping to get more experiences from others first.

I've played Dtecs, it's what I was using before when I was playing modern defence. The sheet I used now is like 3 years old and still feels the same lol.

You can keep the topsheet in great shape by cleaning it properly so it won't actually gain grip. The problem is that the thick sponge will eventually start to wear out and the rubber becomes faster and you lose some control. For me that happens after maybe 6 month or so but it obviously heavily depends on how often you practice, how hard you hit with it and how hard your opponents hit into it.

Thanks for the info. 6 months I don't mind tbh but I guess it means I have to buy their special cleaning product then, I'll look into it.
