DONIC Acuda blue P1

Tibhar Nimbus Delta V Tibhar Nimbus Delta V

Tibhar enter the great race in the plastic generation with the Nimbus Delta V (and Delta S). Nimbus has been one of the most successful series of rubbers on the market since its origins and the Delta series bring new technology to the foray. Nimbus Delta focuses on extreme catapult effect with a new pimple orientation on the topsheet to achieve high speeds, while the Delta S combines with softer sponge for high spin and control. With the history of the Nimbus Series, the Delta range are bound to be a huge success!

Stiga Airoc Astro M Stiga Airoc Astro M

Stiga have taken the original Airoc series and given them a severe boost of performance. The Astro series have a closer pimple structure and a higher amount of elasticity which has improved the speed factor which the original Airoc M lacked. The Airoc Astro S offers a softer variant for improved control ratio. The best part about this rubber? Stiga have clearly addressed the shortcomings of their original p-series rubber and have vastly improved to the Astro series. Airoc Astro could potentially be the market leader in plastic generation rubbers.

Yasaka Rakza X Yasaka Rakza X

The current leader in the Rakza series with it's natural gum rubber topsheet and 'power sponge' combination. With a backing of great reviews on, this rubber is a more explosive counterpart for Rakza 7 which may be considered one of the most reliable rubbers available. Be sure not to overlook Rakza X as an option in the coming season!
