I guess a thicker sponge will always give you less control and consistancy, even if it's a dead sponge.

I second that. Off you go Speedplay.

I have a friend with this on order. So I hope to get a knock next week or at least soon.


Would that friend be Graham? ;) I played him last night and he said that you knew each other.

Back onto the Gorilla, I had a shocker last night and struggled to keep the ball on the table. I don't know if it's me or the rubber to be honest as I'm playing very inconsistently at the moment. However, open face blocks from loop shots were just flying waaaay of the table. I didn't even feel as if I was getting close.

I'm tempted to order a sheet of the anti special, but to be honest, I don't think I've given this new Gorilla enough time. It's only been 3 matches with it! However I won't lie and say that I wouldn't like a little bit less speed. The properties of the rubber I like....it's just the speed! Digging it around the table it feels fantastic but blocking is just so hit and miss at the moment.

Is it a case of working out the angles? Maybe. However I do think that if it was even slower, it would be a lot better. I might just bite the bullet and order some anti special......hmmm or maybe I should stick with the Gorilla for a bit longer.

Who knows..... :(


If you really like the rubber, put it on the Hallmark Aurora, that is what i did to slow down the YAP significantly and i am now loving this rubber!

Speedplay: The anti special is on the contra.de website. It is showing up as not in stock yet but will be soon. The sponge options are 1.2, 1.5, 1.8. No more details of the rubber at contra.de or on dr neubauer site yet.

Not only has the nonsensical minimum friction level hurt former frictionless pip players. The speed glue/booster bans have had the added effect of noticeably taking spin off the ball. Has anyone noticed that loopers are providing less spin to work with? This further erodes the dangerous effects of blocked shots for players relying on spin-reversing pips and antis.



Even if I wasn't as well formulated as you, I predicted this way before the speed glues were banned. I think it was in a tread were someone said that the frictionless and the speed glue ban would even things out.


Yeah that was me. I still keep that line BTW.

I doubt this new Gorilla will have as much appeal now that the Anti Special is released... if it's both slower with more spin reversal...

This is so you guys can see just how good Gorilla is. Good part starts part way through. Hang in there.
