I'm in a bit of a EJ mindset. I was looking at rubbers which would make returning serves a bit easier. I looked at this youtube video and this is the first time I'm hearing about Apollo 5 rubber with a 0.7 mm sponge,

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8FGrEsFCttM

The guy in the video is obviously very highly skilled but I'm hoping to try out that style. The problem Apollo 5 is nowhere being sold. Anyone know how to get one in the UK? Or a similar rubber to Apollo 5?

Blade: Yinhe V14 Pro
FH: Harder Chinese rubber
BH: Softer Chinese/ESN rubber
Tt-maximum do sell the Apollo 5, and believe they ship to Europe. https://tt-maximum.com/en/shop/brands/y ... ilkyway%29
I've never heard of it in 0.7 mm though, perhaps you could ask the tt-maximum owner?

As to what rubbers are similar to the Apollo 5, I have tried a few rubbers from Yinhe, and all of them are pretty similar to each other: Apollo 5, Big Dipper, Jupiter 2.

It's not being sold in 0.7 mm.

In order to play like the Japanese guy in the video, which rubber would suit me if not Apollo 5. Which inverted rubbers are being sold under 1mm sponge thickness thickness. Even the revspin website shows Apollo 5 having good speed and spin rating.
