Black 1.5mm on the BH of a TSP Reflex Award 50 Def+, with DHS G888 1.8mm red on the FH.
This was my 1st Anti loop rubber, I bought it to help me with service returns which is my weak point in my game. My BH is very active, chop hit and loop. I have tried some LP and they where all hit and smashed off the table, but this anti loop has made a big difference. It causes all sorts of problems for topspin returns. Balls tend to go in the net frustrating opponents. I can get a little side spin and back spin against most topspin or looped balls. I deliberately chose an anti with the lowest rating as I was not sure how this would play, I found the change from LP to this anti loop very easy and wow it really has improved my game. I am winning matches against players who in the past won easily. I also went from Off speed blades to fast Def+ blades to help me keep the ball on the table during rallies. My forehand is mainly loop.
I tend to play a mid table game, using chop, punch and block strokes with my BH anti loop, while looking for an opening for a FH loop kill shot.
