I have been surprised with the sub-2.0mm SP sponges on TSP Spinpips Blue and Victas VO > 102. I was expecting less spin and occasional bottoming out (and I hit hard) but experienced neither! Control is higher and speed lower.. a tradeoff I'll gladly accept because it's usually easy to add speed with stroke. The tight arcs I get on over-the-table flicks using TSP Spinpips Blue 1.5mm is a beautiful thing. And spin on service using the thinner-sponged SPs is every bit as good as with the thicker ones.

Exactly what I have found. I find it easier to topspin or chop the ball with 1.5mm Waran on a TSP trinity carbon fast blade than with thicker sponge Waran, SP red etc. The fast but not hard blade gives me all the speed I need whilst the thin sponge give control and bite on the ball for spinny flicks, serves and chops

My impressions of TS 1.5mm black on FH: Fast, LOUD, and spinny! But in retrospect, 1.5mm is probably a poor choice for forehand for someone like me who hits hard.. the ball seemed to be bottoming out repeatedly, and when it did it would invariably fall into the net. :( Not sure if I'll try 2.0 or max. Past experience with thicker-sponged SPs has taught me they play too much like inverted and thus lose any advantage an SP would otherwise provide.

Hi, any new experiences with Tornado Supreme? I am still very satisfied. But I'm thinking of trying an even stronger version - 2.0 or 2.2.
We play with Xushaof balls, but I also played with Joola Prime and it seemed a little different.
