Hey guys,

I wanted to give you a quick update that Yinhe Jupiter II is on sale for around $10 on aliexpress. That is a significant discount from its normal price of $14-16 that I haven't seen for other rubbers.

Jupiter II is a modern Chinese rubber that comes pre-tuned and is light and fast. Totally worth it at that price point.

If you're going to make a post like this, please include a link.. :lol: Best I could find was $11.12, which isn't bad:

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32954276646.html

Are you sure this is better than Big Dipper? :lol: Note the different hardnesses you can get.

There's a "Winter Sale" going on right now, until Jan 10th.

If you go on aliexpress and search they are there. I haven't tried Big Dipper but from what I can tell they are different. BD is a hybrid rubber and Jupiter is a Chinese rubber. Image

The Jupiter II is considered a hybrid rubber as well. I didn't like it as much as the Big Dipper - it felt harder and more difficult to play with.

The difference is minimal, the exchange rate is about 1:1.

I never heard it called that and it's wrong imo. What is your source?

The tt-maximum store, for instance: https://tt-maximum.com/en/shop/rubbers/ ... -ii-medium

What is your source that calls the Big Dipper a hybrid and the Jupiter II a classic Chinese rubber?

BD is called hybrid in different places, and numerous reviews describe the sponge as "porous", "European" or "tensor". I haven't seen that for Jupiter and from my experience with it the sponge has no visible pores.

It's splitting hairs, really. I'll bet if you put Big Dipper on one side of the racket and Jupiter on the other side you'll actually find the difference to be small enough that you'd have to think about what it is. Both are tacky to some degree, both are of the "faster" variety (the "regular" sort of Chinese rubber would be, say, 729 or 729 FX, Yinhe 9000, PF4, etc.) of Chinese rubber.

I have been using Jupiter II for more than 6 months. I have 3 sheets but one has been on my main bat for all that time and it is still tacky and can lift the ball for half a second. It is not as tacky as H3 but similar to other Chinese brands (69 sec or Palio Thors if I remember correctly) and clearly more tacky than hybrid rubbers like Yasaka Rising Dragon or Donic Bluegrip. I like Jupiter II a lot since the top sheet is softer than H3 and the sponge is rather soft and fast. To me it plays like a boosted H3 but perhaps a little more controlled and softer feeling in the top sheet. I have not tried BD (yet).

As I said, there's some sort of New Year's sale going on at AliExpress over the next day or so. A LOT of stuff - blades, rubber, towels, shoes, jewelry, computer mice (I need one, which is why I'm mentioning it.. :lol: ), etc. etc. is on sale. Be careful, though...

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32700053505.html

This item. The normal, everyday price is $10.30 (for the two sheets in the pack). So why is it now $10.19 with a "15% discount"? Because they temporarily raised the "normal price" to $11.99. :lol: Excellent rubber, by the way, I use it on the backhand, mostly. Marketed as a slowish control rubber.

Stay away from memory products - USB drives, SD cards, etc. on AliExpress. About 100% of these are fakes and don't really work (unless you're only going to put 50 MBytes on them... anything over that gets corrupted).
