About the Reviewer

Patrick Hrdlicka is a table tennis enthusiast, who was introduced to the sport by his parents at the age of six. Patrick progressed to play in the highest national cadet and junior team leagues in his native Denmark and was among the top 40 players in his age group, which fostered several long-standing members of the Danish National Team. With college looming, Patrick quit the sport for almost twenty years. During this hiatus, he obtained a Ph.D.-degree in chemistry and accepted a position as professor of chemistry at the University of Idaho.

At the beginning of 2014, the mid-life crisis and yearning for table tennis grew too strong for Patrick and he decided to pick up the sport again. Bitten again by the table tennis bug, he plays 4-6 times per week. 

Since his comeback to table tennis, he has enjoyed combining his analytical and experimental skills with his love for table tennis, testing and reviewing a wide range of table tennis equipment.


Tibhar Evolution Series – Introduction

Tibhar’s flagship series, the Evolution line, is one of the most talked about rubber series on the market. The Tibhar Evolution rubbers come in six different variants, i.e., the MX-S, MX-P, EL-S, EL-P, FX-S, and FX-P. The rubbers are made in Germany using “Red Power Sponge" technology and “ProTension” topsheets from a carefully selected caoutchouc mix. The six rubbers were added to ITTF’s official List of Approved Racket Coverings (LARC) in the course of the past five years: MX-P and FX-P in 2011, MX-S and EL-P in 2013, and EL-S and FX-S in 2016.

The rubbers come in cardboard packaging that has silver, black and red color tones, along with a distinguishing color for each rubber: orange (MX-S), red (MX-P), black (EL-S), green (EL-P), yellow (FX-S), and aquamarine (FX-P). All of the Evolution rubbers have a strong and sweet booster smell, yet they do not dome significantly upon unpacking. The uncut sheets weigh 76g (MX-S, 2.1-2.2 mm black, 179 mm x 168 mm), 72 g (MX-P, 2.1-2.2 mm black, 179 mm x 168 mm), 72 g (EL-S, 2.1-2.2 mm black, 179mm x 178 mm), 69 g (EL-P, 2.1-2.2 mm black, 179mm x 168 mm), 68 g (FX-S, 2.1-2.2 mm red, 179mm x 166 mm), and 68 g (FX-P, 2.1-2.2 mm red, 180mm x 168 mm). The topsheets of the P-series are glossy and have a hint of tack, whereas those of the S-series are more matte and without tack. All of the topsheets have 13 pips per 5 cm in the horizontal direction and 22 pips per 5 cm in the vertical direction. The pips of the MX- and EL-series seem smaller than those of the FX-series. All of the Evolution sponges are bright red. The MX-P and FX-S sponges have large pores, while the pores of the EL-P, EL-S and FX-P sponges appear to be marginally smaller. The MX-S sponge has small pores. A simple blind press test revealed the following order of hardness (from firmest to softest): MX-S ≥ EL-S > MX-P > EL-P ≥ FX-S > FX-P. The topsheet of the S-series rubbers feels harder than that of the P-series.

Tibhar provides quite a bit of information about the rubbers on the back of the cardboard packaging. For example, the hardness of the rubbers is provided: MX-S (~47.3 °), MX-P (~46.7 °), EL-S (~44.8 °), EL-P (~43.4 °), FX-S (~42.0 °), and FX-P (~40.1 °). The MX-P is listed as being the fastest Evolution rubber (speed = 13.5), whereas the FX-S and FX-P are the slowest (= 12.5). With respect to spin, MX-S is listed as being capable of producing the most spin in this series (= 11.5), whereas the MX-P and EL-P are the least spinny (= 10.5).

Testing procedure
I tested brand new and unboosted Tibhar Evolution rubbers using an OFF- rated 5-ply all-wood blade with a classic limba/limba ply construction and TSP Spectol short pips in my backhand. I attached the rubbers to the blade using three layers of Revolution 3 normal viscosity glue and evaluated them in decreasing order of sponge hardness over at least two sessions, using seamless 3-star 40+ plastic balls. After ~15 min of warm up, I played practice matches against my usual training partners. I also had the opportunity to use the MX-S/Spectol set-up in a tournament.

Tibhar Evolution MX-S – A superb rubber for the spin-, block- and flat hit minded player

MX-S

The MX-S is the hardest version in the EVOLUTION range. Tibhar describes the rubber in the following manner: “This spin-oriented, dynamic version possesses a much longer dwell time thanks to the specially developed pimple geometry of the rubber surface. It is particularly suited to players who employ a more physical action (acceleration of arm and wrist). Players using this style of play can release the enormous potential and consistent performance of MX-S both at the table and at half distance. EVOLUTION MX-S: the rubber chosen by the majority of TIBHAR Bundesliga and National players”. The MX-S is a popular rubber, being Tabletennis11.com’s 7th best-selling rubber in 2015.

Playing impressions

As expected for a 47.3-degrees rubber, the Tibhar Evolution MX-S is quite firm to the touch (similar to, e.g., Xiom Omega Asia and Tour) and relatively heavy, weighing 52 grams when cut to the 157x150 mm test blade. This is heavier than Xiom’s Omega V Asia (51 g), Gewo’s nanoFLEX FT48 (51 g), or Nittaku’s Fastarc G-1 (49 g), but lighter than the Gewo Hype XT Pro 50 (53 g). The MX-S feels crisp and responsive on FH drives. The rubber’s medium catapult and OFF speed rating instill a desire to hit hard from mid-distance. The rubber produces a slight clicking sound and excellent feeling on forehand loops, which allowed me to make very angled shots with excellent control. I would characterize the throw angle as medium – enough arc to clear the net, even against heavy backspin balls. The rubber grips the 40+ ball well – I did not experience any ball slippage. Judging by my opponents’ blocks, opening loops can be played with very high levels of spin. There is enough speed to engage in topspin-to-topspin rallies far from the table, even when playing with an only moderately fast all-wood blade. Blocking with the MX-S is truly magnificent. The sponge absorbs most of the kinetic energy from incoming loops and this, coupled with the rubbers low spin-sensitivity, allows for perfect redirection of shots. I felt very comfortable when doing passive and active blocks. Flat hitting is excellent and controlled with plenty of speed reserves for direct winners. The MX-S excels in the short game – pushes and serve returns can be placed short and low with high degrees of control and predictability, again in large part due to the rather hard sponge and spin-insensitive topsheet, which also allows for controlled flips. Serves can be played with high amounts of spin and are easy to keep short. 

In my opinion, the Tibhar Evolution MX-S is in the same category of rubbers as Xiom’s Omega V Asia, Nittaku’s Fastarc G1 and Andro’s Rasant Powergrip. It has the best characteristics of each of these rubbers including the excellent blocking and short game capabilities of the Omega V Asia, the spin of the Powergrip, and the dynamic feeling of the G1. It lacks their drawbacks – the MX-S can produce more spin than the Omega V Asia, has a higher throw angle than the Powergrip, and instills more confidence in blocking than the G1. The Tibhar Evolution MX-S is an exceptional rubber for the spin-, block- and smash-oriented player who also wants an excellent feeling on serve returns and loops. While I used a moderately fast all-wood blade in the tests, I think the MX-S would pair up very well with faster blades with hard outer plies.

Special tournament report: My impressions from practice were largely confirmed in a tournament setting, except that I would perhaps describe the throw angle as medium-low to medium – the ball had a greater tendency to clip the net or simply go long. This might very well be a reflection of a slightly less fluid looping motion in tight match situations.

Serves: 9.5/10
Serve receives and short game: 9.5/10
Looping: 9.5/10
Flat hitting: 9.5/10
Blocking: 10/10

Recommended player type: In my opinion, the Tibhar Evolution MX-S is well-suited for advanced players all the way up to professional players who use a spin-oriented direct offensive game. As suggested by Tibhar’s product description, the MX-S has less catapult than, e.g., the MX-P. As a result, the player must generate more power him/herself, which, in turn, puts greater demands on good footwork and technique.

Tibhar Evolution MX-P – A very fast rubber for hard-hitters and power-loopers

MX-P

Tibhar’s Evolution MX-P is one of the most talked about rubbers in recent years, in part due to some prominent adopters, which include Vladimir Samsonov (three-time European champion; record-breaking winner of 26 pro-tour events; 2016 Olympics semi-finalist; 1997 vice world champion), Emmanuel Lebesson (2016 European Men’s singles champion), and Paul Drinkhall (Commonwealth champion, round of 16 at 2016 Olympics). In fact, the MX-P was tabletennis11.com’s best-selling rubber in 2015. 

According to Tibhar, the MX-P is the most dynamic and fastest rubber of the EVOLUTION family. The pimple geometry has been designed to extend the ball-bat contact time, which confers additional feeling. Tibhar recommends the MX-P to advanced-to-professional topspin players who want to feel the pressure of their strokes at the table and half distance.

Playing impressions

Let me preface my description of Tibhar’s Evolution MX-P with the fact that this was my preferred forehand rubber for a 6-month period in late 2015 – early 2016 before I started experimenting with Chinese rubbers. The MX-P feels softer to the touch than Xiom’s Omega V Tour and more similar to the Euro version or Nittaku’s Fastarc G-1. It weighs 49 grams when cut to my 157 x 150 mm test blade, which is within one gram of the reference rubbers mentioned above. FH drives feel nothing short of marvelous with this rubber. The contact is crisp and produces a clicking sound that instills much confidence. The catapult is quite pronounced, which makes it tempting to take 1-2 steps away from the table and start hammering FH drives and flat hits with high speed. The feeling that the MX-P confers on these shots is very similar to the feeling that speed-glued rubbers used to confer. FH loops offer a similarly crisp feeling allowing for magnificent touch and control especially against balls with little spin. Unfortunately, the throw angle is fairly low, and at times I would wish that the topsheet grabbed the ball more efficiently. Loops against very heavy backspin can, therefore, be challenging given the low arc and the MX-P’s high speed – the shots certainly require good touch, a more open bat angle, and leg power. This takes getting used to but, once mastered, these shots can be played with confidence. As already indicated, flat hits are phenomenal with this rubber. Great control and very high speed, especially if the wrist is engaged. In fact, the rubber has plenty power to allow for powerful shots to be executed from mid- and long-distance. At the same time, the MX-P offers much control on passive shots such as blocks as it does a great job of absorbing the incoming kinetic energy. The MX-P is rather spin-insensitive and behaves well on aggressive serve returns, although one needs to moderate the power on these shots to preventing overshooting the table. Passive serve returns can be played with high amounts of backspin and can be kept low. The catapult does not kick in on these low energy shots, which allows for good control. Serving with the MX-P is a delight – it is easy to play short serves with lots of spin, yet at the same time the catapult can be engaged for fast serves. As a spin enthusiast, I would wish, however, that the topsheet was a little bit tackier or grippier, allowing for an extended ball contact and even more spin production. Rubbers such as Xiom’s Omega V Tour, Gewo’s Nanoflex FT48, and, in particular, Nittaku’s Fastarc G-1, have characteristics that resemble those of the MX-P, without quite matching it. In my opinion, the MX-P offers a couple of percent more speed, spin, and feel which likely contributes to its popularity. Clearly, the Tibhar Evolution line is set up as a direct competitor to Butterfly’s Tenergy line. Having tried most Tenergy rubbers, I would say the MX-P has the most in common with the T64, without them being identical, however.

Serves: 9/10
Serve receives and short game: 9/10
Looping: 9.5/10
Flat hitting: 10/10
Blocking: 9.5/10 

Recommended player: Offensive players who place equal focus on flat hits and loops, and who possess good touch will cherish the Tibhar Evolution MX-P. Its high speed means that it is most suitable for players at a very high technical level. Current Tenergy users, should give serious consideration to this rubber.

Tibhar Evolution EL-S – Perfect for looping and touch play

EL-S

The Tibhar Evolution EL-S has been one of the most anticipated arrivals of 2016. According to Tibhar the EL-S “combines the enormous spin values of the MX-S with a completely new rubber surface and the power of the MX-P [...] The medium-hard sponge and a specially tuned pimple geometry, sets new standards in terms of elasticity. The EL-S gives sensational touch despite enormous dynamism and high spin values. Excelling at topspin, the EL-S offers high rotation and power in all game situations”. Tibhar recommends this rubber to advanced and professional players.

Playing impressions

 Tibhar’s Evolution EL-S feels slightly harder to the touch than the MX-P despite having a slightly softer sponge (~45 vs.~47 degrees), which suggests that a harder and denser topsheet is used in the S-series. In fact, it is similar in firmness to Xiom’s Omega V Tour and Gewo’s NanoFLEX FT48. Consistent with these impressions, the EL-S weighs 50 grams when cut to my 157 x 150 mm test blade, which is one gram more than the MX-P sheet and within one gram of the mentioned reference rubbers. Hitting the first couple of FH drives, it is immediately clear that the EL-S is a little bit slower than the MX-S and, in particular, the MX-P. However, it is still an OFF-rated rubber, if not faster. The contact is crisp, and the feeling is reminiscent of Butterfly’s Tenergy 05. I have a tendency to play FH drives more like mini flat hits, but the EL-S (and T05) encourage mini-loop like stroke execution since the throw angle is relatively high. FH loops produce a prominent and very satisfying click, as well as a prominent arc over the net. A high amount of spin can be generated on opening loops, especially at slow to medium speed. It is truly a delight to loop with this rubber. The high throw and less-than-insane speed, coupled with an appropriate amount of catapult, instills a feeling of control, which encouraged me to play highly angled shots. Loops against backspin are a piece of cake, except against extremely spinny balls where I felt the topsheet did not grab the ball as aggressively as I would have liked. This, combined with the slower speed of the EL-S, means that more power has to come from the blade or be generated from the legs, which at the time of testing was a weakness of mine as I was recovering from surgery. Nonetheless, the EL-S has plenty of speed to engage in topspin rallies away from the table. Again, the prominent arc provides additional safety to land the shots. Flat hits with the EL-S are easy to execute, but the lower speed of the rubber means that one must use a faster blade or provide more power from the arm, wrist, or legs for really fast shots, although there is plenty of speed to make winners. The relatively high throw angle, did result in some flat hits sailing past the table. Blocking with the EL-S is excellent. It feels as if the catapult doesn’t engage on passive blocks and it is possible to play shots with much touch and control. Along these lines, the EL-S also offers an excellent feeling in the short game, which allowed me to play shots with much touch, keeping the ball short and low. The low spin sensitivity provides an additional sense of control, especially on aggressive serve returns. While I was able to produce much spin on my serves, I felt it was slightly less than with the MX-P and, in particular, the MX-S.

Serves: 9/10
Serve receives and short game: 9.5/10
Looping: 10/10
Flat hitting: 9/10
Blocking: 9/10 

Recommended player: The Tibhar Evolution EL-S is well-suited for players who base their game on topspin shots and who play with touch and finesse. In my opinion, the EL-S is suitable for a very broad range of players. I could see intermediate and developing players use it on controlled ALL-rated blades, whereas more advanced players might put the EL-S on OFF- to OFF+ rated (composite) blades to give exquisite looping set-ups that combine high speed and excellent touch and control.

Tibhar Evolution EL-P – A controlled looping rubber

Tibhar describes the EVOLUTION EL-P as “the most elastic rubber" of the series. EL-P, with its medium sponge, fits perfectly in between the harder MX-series and the softer FX-series. The selected pimple geometry of the elastic EL-P allows for very precise and powerful strokes from half distance or at the table. EVOLUTION EL-P: chosen by most of the topspin players for whom the MX version is too hard and the FX version too soft, and who place emphasis on rotation and power.” The EL-P is a very popular rubber, finishing 2nd on tabletennis11.com’s 2015 best-selling rubber list.

Playing impressions

 The Tibhar Evolution EL-P feels quite soft to the touch – softer than MX-S, MX-P, and the EL-S rubbers, and more similar to Andro’s Rasant Grip. For a ~43-degrees rubber, it is quite heavy weighing 48 grams when cut to the 157 x 150 mm test blade. This puts it within one gram of the MX-P, Nittaku’s Fastarc G-1, and Xiom’s Omega V Euro and Pro rubbers. The first couple of FH drives quickly revealed that the EL-P is a level slower than the MX-rubbers and marginally slower than the EL-S, although shots played with greater arm acceleration seem to activate a prominent catapult giving the impression of high speed. Loops produced a pronounced clicking sound and generally felt very crisp and controlled. The throw angle is medium to medium-high, providing sufficient safety over the net. However, I did have some difficulty gauging when the catapult was going to kick in, which resulted in some loops that veered past the end of the table. Moreover, on a handful of occasions, the top sheet completely failed to connect with the ball when looping against heavy backspin, resulting in shots that did not go anywhere – somewhat concerning in the poly-ball era, for sure. The slower speed of the EL-P requires a stronger forward pull. The spin on opening loops was high, but less than with MX-S, MX-P, or EL-S. The catapult, which is stronger than in the EL-S, provides ample speed for mid-distance or even long-distance play. Flat hits with the EL-P are solid but require more wrist action to generate top-end speeds. Passive blocking with the EL-P – as is the case with all of the Evolution rubbers – is nice, instilling a high sense of control and the ability to precisely block the ball in the intended direction. The low spin sensitivity contributes to this feeling and also renders flips on short serves easy to execute. Similar to observations made with other Evolution rubbers, passive serve returns can be kept short and low, as the catapult doesn’t engage at low speed. I was a little disappointed with the EL-P in the service game – although the rubber provides excellent control on serve placement and pace, it could not keep up with the MX-S, MX-P, and EL-S when it came to spin levels, which gave my opponents unnecessary opportunities to attack serves. Accordingly, it comes across as perhaps a little outdated, and I would recommend players who currently use EL-P to try out the EL-S instead.

Serves: 8.5/10
Serve receives and short game: 9.5/10
Looping: 9/10
Flat hitting: 9/10
Blocking: 9.5/10 

Recommended player: The Tibhar Evolution EL-P is well-suited to developing and intermediate level players that have a balanced and touch-based game style without too much emphasis on spin. More advanced players may find the spin and speed levels to be too low to justify the excellent feel and control of this rubber. The EL-P might be more suitable as a BH rubber for two-winged attackers. However, in my opinion, the EL-S represents an improved alternative for EL-P.

Tibhar Evolution FX-S – A fun rubber for controlled and impactful looping

FX-S

The Tibhar Evolution FX-S is another hotly anticipated 2016 arrival. Tibhar describes the FX-S as “the 'little brother' of the EL-S. The FX-S has the enormous spin values of MX-S and the power of the MX-P combined with a newly designed rubber surface. The sponge of the FX-S is softer than the sponge of the EL-S so that the FX-S in combination with a personalized pimple geometry is more elastic which generates 'Flexible Spin'. The FX-S is much softer than MX-P and MX-S, but slightly harder than the FX-P. FX-S significantly distinguishes itself from the medium rubbers EL-P and EL-S.”

Playing impressions

 The Tibhar Evolution FX-S feels quite hard to the touch for a 42-degree rubber, having a similar firmness as the EL-P. Consistent with this, it weighs 47 grams (157 x 150 mm), only 1 gram less than the EL-P and on par with rubbers such as the DHS Hurricane 3 Neo, Gewo nanoFLEX FT45, and Nittaku Fastarc C-1, which have significantly harder sponges. Hitting the first couple of FH drives with the FX-S, I immediately felt the potential for developing a “soft rubber crush”. The contact feels very crisp, and a pronounced clicking sound is generated. Unlike many soft rubbers, the FX-S doesn’t suffer from ‘bottoming out’ effects, where the ball penetrates through the sponge to make contact with the blade, which can render soft rubbers unpredictable on very hard shots and blocks. On the contrary, the FX-S offers a firm feeling and very high level of control on FH drives and FH loops. Although it is not very fast, it has enough speed to allow shots from mid-distance, even when ‘only’ paired with an OFF- rated blade. The throw angle is medium-high on regular loops – plenty of arc and sufficient catapult to direct the ball over the net. The longer contact time means that the FX-S forgives sub-optimal footwork, which allowed me to make loops even when off-balance. The spin on opening loops is high but slightly less so than with the harder rubbers in this series. The throw angle on loop drives is slightly lower, and I did, on occasion, clip the net on these shots. Flat shots are sufficiently fast to make direct winners, especially when played with a flick of the wrist. Just like the other Evolution rubbers, the catapult does not kick in on slow shots and the FX-S is not very spin-sensitive, which provides excellent control on passive blocks, aggressive serve returns, and short serve returns, which can be kept short and low. The one area of improvement that I see for the FX-S is spin on serves. While it is easy to vary the speed and placement of the serves, only an average amount of spin could be imparted on the ball, probably because the sponge doesn’t offer sufficient support on high-friction serves. The Tibhar Evolution FX-S in many respects reminds me of Gewo’s nanoFLEX FT40 and Butterfly’s Tenergy 05fx rubber, except that it has a crisper feel and is slightly slower than the latter.

Serves: 9/10
Serve receives and short game: 9.5/10
Looping: 9.5/10
Flat hitting: 9/10
Blocking: 9/10 

Recommended player: All in all, the Tibhar Evolution FX-S is a great rubber for a modern all-round/offensive game style. It is well-suited as a FH rubber for players ranging from intermediate to advanced skill levels who prefer forgiving high-throw rubbers with a slightly softer feel. I expect that the FX-S might find even more use as a BH rubber due to these characteristics. Current Butterfly Tenergy 05fx users should give serious consideration to the FX-S.

Tibhar Evolution FX-P – A soft rubber with prominent catapult effect

FX-P

The Tibhar Evolution FX-P is – together with the MX-P – the original member of this series to hit the markets. According to Tibhar the FX-P “confers a lot of sensation and control in any playing situation. FX-P is a high-performing rubber proven by the enormous sound resulting from topspin strokes. The rubber surface is rich in spins and its soft sponge with high catapult effect gives the sufficient power necessary for a variable topspin game. Players who like to attack near the table and are not willing to concede any ball while playing a risky game will be delighted by the EVOLUTION FX-P.”

Playing impressions

The Tibhar Evolution FX-P is clearly the softest of the six Evolution rubbers and also the lightest at 46 grams cut to the 157 x 150 mm test blade. However, it feels significantly harder than other 40-degrees rubbers, such as the Gewo nanoFLEX FT40, and is only one gram lighter than the significantly harder-sponged Nittaku Fastarc C-1, Gewo nanoFLEX FT45, and Donic Acuda Blue P1. Unlike the minimally harder FX-S, the FX-P has a distinctly mushier feel and a more pronounced catapult, while being similarly fast. FH drives can be executed in a controlled manner and are accompanied with a distinct clicking sound. FH loops produce an even louder sound but seem to be less spinny than the FX-S and follow a flatter arc. As a result, I had to use a more upward motion, especially when looping against heavy backspin, which was easy to adjust to. The flatter arc, however, became very evident when loop-driving against no spin or topspin balls where the ball had a greater probability of clipping the net than with the FX-S. All in all, I was less confident in my looping game than with the FX-S and consequentially played with less variability in placement and spin. I found flat hits difficult to gauge, perhaps due to the combination of a low flight curve and modest speed. Blocking was ok with the FX-P, except against very hard loops where the rubber either felt too slow to allow for an effective return or resulted in full compression of the sponge, leading to bottoming out effects and balls going over the edge of the table. The potential onset of the built-in catapult affected my short game, especially on serve returns. As a consequence, I had difficulties gauging the power input for slow shots. Just like the rest of the Evolution series, the FX-P is spin insensitive, which did help on passive and aggressive serve returns. In was easy to impart a respectable, but not outstanding, amount of spin on serves and keep them short and low, or change things up with long serves. Just as in the case of EL-P and EL-S, I think current FX-P users may advantageously switch to the FX-S.

Serves: 9/10
Serve receives and short game: 8.5/10
Looping: 8.5/10
Flat hitting: 8.5/10
Blocking: 8.5/10

Recommended player: In my opinion, the Tibhar Evolution FX-P is best suited for developing and/or intermediate level players who don’t possess the strength to “hit through” the rubber, and for whom control is more important than top marks in speed and spin. The FX-P is likely better suited as a backhand rubber, due to the softer, more springy feel and lower probability of hitting through the rubber.

Final remarks about Tibhar Evolution rubber range

The product line is, deservingly, among the market leaders. In particular, the MX-P and the entire S-series are very high-quality rubbers which will cater to and satisfy the needs of many modern offensive players. The rubber range offers excellent spin values, low spin-sensitivity, and excellent feeling, and is available in 40-47 degrees variants. Accordingly, there should be something for every taste, including current Butterfly Tenergy users. I think the following approximation chart is reasonable: MX-S = particularly hard-sponged variants of T05/T64; MX-P = T64; EL-S = T05, and FX-S = T05fx. I am not at all surprised that the Tibhar Evolution rubber range continues to grow in popularity.
