Globe 889-2 follow up

Well I tried this rubber without glue this time, although it was still a little stretched from the previous gluing.

Well it played very similarly, but was simply slower and offered more control, especially on pushes and chops. In fact unless you really need the extra speed, this rubber plays very nicely without glue.

Don't let the ball drop if you wish to loop or counterloop, since the rubber obviously has a very low throw, and is harder to lift if you let it drop. Strokes should be played near the top of the bounch.

An excellent rubber for those that struggle a little with incoming spin, and do not have an spin based attack style. It can generate plenty of spin, but not like many inverted rubbers. It offers plenty of speed, and probably a lot more on a faster blade...
