I have been using mark V for both my front hand and backhand for almost 4 years now...And now i think the rubber has gone...because it doesn't give me that spin needed....so I have a question...which rubber should I buy...and it should be below 30 USD for one side!

Hi Husain,

If you want something faster you are probably going to have to spend more than that.  You could just get more Mark V as the new Mark V will feel a lot better than the 4 years old sheets you have on.

Others may have some ideas for you.

I agree with Benzene and Alois.  Mark V and H3 Nero are some of the best rubbers you'll find at that price-point. The H3 will be faster and spinier than the Mark V but will offer quite a bit less control. A new Mark V in a thicker version than you use now will give you more speed and spin while retaining most of the control.

So, if your control is already pretty solid, consider the H3 and if you want to retain the extra control, and are comfortable with the Mark V, just go for a thicker version. Alternatively you could go with something a little cheaper on your back-hand (assuming you are a forehand attacker) and spend a little more on the Forehand rubber.  I have a bat (ALL/OFF all wood, balsa) with Yasaka Original XHG ($18) on the BH and Yasaka Rakza X ($42) on the FH and really like this combo.  The XHG is not unlike the Mark V and the Rakza X is way better than H3 - great speed, spin and control (I use 1.8 mm so expect to loose a little control and gain a little speed and spin if you go for a thicker version).

Cheers
