Featuring a more enhanced grip (more substantial and more durable) than the first version of the Start Up’, Start Up’ Evo is even more effective at adding spin to the ball, whilst remaining very tolerant during counter-initiatives and return of serve. Start Up’ Evo is the perfect rubber for making your debut in competition.
Playing Strategies: Def, All-, All, All+
The grip is determined by both the sponge + topsheet but mostly by the specification of the topsheet (grip + elasticity + pimples shape).
With a higher grip, the ball spin will be superior and more elasticity will increase the contact surface with the ball. The shape and density of the pimples will also greatly influence the effect. Finally, our technologies will bring enhanced “grip” performance.
Speed is determined by both the sponge + topsheet but mostly the specification of the sponge (resilience ‘spring effect’ + thickness + hardness).
A thick sponge (2.0mm or max) best suits OFF/OFF+ players whereas thinner (1.6 or 1.8mm) will offer more control and be more suited to all-round players. Sponge hardness is generally measured in degrees (higher grade = firmer sponge). Our technologies will bring enhanced “speed” performance.
All our rubbers are accredited by the ITTF for official use in international tournaments.
