Tibhar Hybrid K1 European Version, Table Tennis Rubber, Choose Color & Thickness
Hybrid K1, as its name implies, is a hybrid rubber that combines a more tacky, Chinese style top sheet with a powerful European, tensioned sponge.
This rubber requires its wielder to be skilled as it has been designed for advanced level players and up.
The somewhat tacky top sheet is still very elastic, much more so than most Chinese top sheets.
This allows for an increase in power on properly executed strokes.
The 50° hard sponge provides a synergistic effect to increase power even more.
Hybrid K1 features very high levels of friction granting extreme spin in all situations.
Its combination of catapult and high spin helps alleviate the counter-looping difficulties often encountered when using traditional Chinese rubbers.
