nanoFLEX FT45

Choose a rubber that suits you: The innovative revolution of nanoFLEX is the new development with the wow effect. It is a premium rubber with the latest high state-of-the-art technology. Players at all levels have participated during the development and testing of this rubber. GEWO technicians have created a new innovative high tech rubber series with nanoFLEX, a geometry adapted pimple structure. The result is an attacking weapon that gives a catapult like acceleration.



The newly developed pimple geometry adapts to the ball surface guaranteeing a highly explosive spinny shot during all playing situations. The highly tacky tension surface generates enormous spin ratings thanks to the very dynamic elastic surface. The nanoFLEX series offers tremendous feeling with the optimum dynamics of spin and power for all professional and serious players.



The GEWO nanoFLEX is built with the medium sponge of the nanoFLEX series. This rubber with its medium+ sponge closes the gap between the harder FT48 and the soft FT40 version. Here the pip geometry was developed in order to generate a perfect balance between spin and speed. Whether close to the table or mid distance the FT45 offers more precision pressure play and a great option of varying spin strategies. nanoFLEX FT45 is ideal for top spin players looking for a medium sponge with the main focus on spin and power.

Gewo NanoFlex FT45 2.1mm, black, used on Stiga All Classic and KTL Instinct. This is an excellent product from a minor brand, and has very few weaknesses. The firm topsheet couples really well with the medium-hard sponge. Durability is good but a dull patch appears early on in it's lifespan; fortunately the only difference this makes is a lower throw on weaker shots like blocks. Close to the table this rubber performs well; service is spinny and easy to place, close to net touch-play is very controlled due to the less reactive topsheet. Flicks are average since the topsheet does not have excessive grip on compact strokes especially against heavy backspin, but responds better to spin from an accelerated arm speed. Backspin pushing is better than any other offensive rated rubber I've tried. Short loops are very spinny and have a short trajectory due to the impressive range of lower gears, enabling effective topspin placement around the table. Attacks with a flatter trajectory are also easily attainable. Blocking is a breeze; so is looping at mid distance - every shot has a pleasing, adjustable arc, meaning you can vary your pressure easily. It also smashes particularly well due to its low reactivity to spin, and has plenty of control in advanced speed play. For power looping this might need a fast blade because it's a step down in speed from professional 'Tenergy clones', and doesn't have a big trampoline effect. Overall this is a superb controlled and spinny rubber, it's real selling point being that it allows you to focus on making your own shots better without the worry of a rapidly changing throw angle. Plus, every shot is easy to play; thus, I would highly recommend Gewo NanoFLEX to developing intermediate players. More offensive players should consider the FT48 version. Enjoy your TT!

The Gewo nanoFLEX FT45 allows for respectable and reliable FH drives, loops, flat hits, and loop drives. While it certainly is not a Ferrari, it does have sufficient speed to finish off points. However, the feeling was not as crisp as with the FT48 when using the all-wood blade and I was a little disappointed with the FT45 when it came to looping against heavy backspin. My loops often seemed to remain stuck at the top of the net, while making it over with the FT48 (due to a faster sponge) or FT40 (due to higher throw). At times, it felt like the ball didn’t penetrate the topsheet quite as much as I would have liked. Switching to the slightly faster composite blade alleviated most, but not all, of these problems.
