Rubbers

RUBBER CLASSIFICATION

JOOLA has made the decision to cease using the old numerical system of rubber rating. We believe that our new classification system is easier to understand and that an exact classification into very precise ratings is impossible and highly subjective.

We will keep the traditional categories of playing features, but classification now has only 4 levels:

SPEED:

low
medium
fast
extreme

SPIN and CONTROL:

low
medium
high
extra high

Playing strategies and the correct choice of rubber

In order to choose the most suitable equipment every player should decide into which playing strategy they fall:

Classic, pure defensive play behind the table with occasional attacking shots.
Modern defensive play, also at the table, with positioned offensive shots.
Modern defensive play using special rubbers (e.g. JOOLA Fakir), aimed at disturbing the opponent’s offensive play.
Play with a basic tendency for a safe, controlled, allround topspin game.
Offensive play with precise attacking shots and variation of topspin.
Offensive play with hard final shots and aggressive topspin, close to the table most of the time.
Offensive play, aggressive topspin shots and hard final strokes.

In the following survey the rubbers are classified into the different playing strategies, which makes it easy for the player to choose the most suitable category.
