Dr Neubauer A-B-S anti spin rubber
The new weapon for blocking close to the table
How can I be of service to you?
Well I do hold a master degree in killing any topspin by blocking, chop blocking or chopping at long range, be it loaded, with little rotation or a power attack. I specialise in doing this with a lot of spin reversal and just low and short over the net.
Actually during my studies I majored in another subject called 'control'. Now I can keep in check any stroke with ease. Believe me this turned out to be quite an ordeal but I did it and now have fully mastered it.
You may call me slow, even very slow and I shall subscribe to this. However, if I get bored while blocking and pushing I do lose my temper occasionally, oh boy can I get aggressive then.
A-B-S is distinctively slower than our current Anti-Spin rubbers Gorilla and Grizzly and offers a much better control. On top of that A-B-S produces a very good spin reversal for a highly effective blocking game close to the table.
At the same time A-B-S provides good attacking possibilities through aggressive pushing and lifting, especially on chopped balls.
A-B-S and ANTI SPECIAL come with a new rubber mixture for the topsheet and a new type of sponge. Thus the rubbers come very close to our old frictionless long pimples.
A-B-S is ITTF-homologated since end of 2008 and is available as from now with the following sponge thickness:
• 1.2mm black
