The Target Pro GT-S39 is a soft, dynamic but also very loud sounding rubber which suits players for whom the sound of the rubber is critical.
Target Pro is a range of Rubbers 'made in Germany' and the result of a research and development programme involving Cornilleau experts, Michelin engineers and the world's largest manufacturer of rubbers. The goal of this project: reaching the highest level of performance and safety in topspin and counter-topspin strokes.

GRIP EXTEND PLUS
SPIN DRIVE 3D
The GRIP EXTEND PLUS enables you to transmit even greater spin in every phase of the game through increased elasticity and impressive level of grip.
The SPIN-DRIVE 3D technology is the optimisation of 3 performance settings in the top sheet's pimples: shape, size and density.
Embedded in the TARGET PRO GT rubbers, this technology will reach a unique combination of maximum grip+power.
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.
The special formulation and cell structure enable the NEXTENS sponge to interact more efficiently with the pimples below the surface in contact with the ball.
The GT (GREAT TENSION) evolution of our NEXTENS sponge provides additional strength, as well as transmitting greater rotation onto the ball.
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.
Made in Germany
Each rubber developed by Cornilleau and Michelin experts has a special formulation to optimise elasticity and also a unique pimple shape.
This range of rubbers is made in Germany and the result of a research and development program involving Cornilleau experts, Michelin engineers and the world's largest manufacturer of coverings.
All our rubbers are accredited by the ITTF for official use in international tournaments.
