The Control version of Amy rubber has a novel, very-thin sponge, providing good control. Even hard topspins can be returned without any problem. Amy Solja plays with this rubber.

I have been using Knuckle for many years and it has given me the choice to hit offensively with speed and ball that I get without slide. Most of all of the other antis that I have tried slide unless you hit the ball very flat. Does Amy have the ability to return balls with speed and no slide?

What I forgot to add: The major advantage of the Amy is its capability to easily and dangerously attack on opponent's backspin. In this respect it is outstanding!

IMHO it does not make much sense to rate an anti rubber along with topspin rubbers. So my rating is the result of comparison wihtin the anti world. The Amy is one of the fastest slick antis, but Gorilla and Grizzly are even faster, so I result in 8 pt. for speed. Spin is counterproductive for antis, so it actually is zero. However, most important for this new generation of antis is disruption: In this respect, Amy is almost at the leading edge (surpassed only by Gorilla and Nightmare). If it comes to control, all modern antis cannot compare to, let me say, Toni Hold. So 10pt. is unacceptable. I rate it at 6pt. I do not want to rate gears because the new antis live on the opponent's gears. So if he has 10, you have too! We refer to this effect as spin reversal. The Amy is an extremely unpredictable weapon, feared by almost any opponent. It is not well suited for long defense but mainly for aggressive play close to the table. BTW it may also be capricious because its behavior very much depends on blade angle, the right one being triggered by speed of the opponent's template, not by its spin. That means you have to open your blade very much on spinny but slow balls and to close on fast ones, whether they have spin or not. This needs lot of practice! The drawback of antis, and especially the new ones, is they have no own gears and thus are easily tricked by no-spin balls. Against opponents knowing about this, you have to be quick in moving and accept the ball by forehand, or you have to twist the sides of your blade.

Review it!
