This Hunter X-Carbon blade with a flared handle is assembled with Dr. Neubauer Explosion 1.2 red and Dr. Neubauer Killer Pro 2.0 black rubbers.
The blade: Revolutionary new Cross-Carbon Technology! Limba outer plies, and a balsa core crossed with a matrix of 12 perpendicular carbon strips. Strong, stiff, powerful, and fast, this light-weight blade has the unique break-thru technology for the offensive player.
Red rubber: Until now short and half-long pimple rubbers always came with a trade-off between speed and disruptive effect produced. Explosion is a new type of short pimple rubber that combines both.
The rubber enables to produce a very dynamic game through counter-attacking and hitting with all sponge thicknesses. At the same time a low bounce is created especially when used with thin sponge, resulting in direct mistakes by your opponent.
Blocking will also produce a low trajectory unlike most other short pimple rubbers on the market. Explosion does not only allow for classic blocking, but also for a "drop shot" that can be returned very short over the net. A slight forward movement while blocking will also cause trouble to your opponent as the ball literally "freezes" in the air. A thin sponge thickness of 1.2 or 1.5mm is naturally more effective for this.
Black rubber: Killer Pro rubber from Dr Neubauer is a great weapon for the aggressive game with short pimples! The short pips-out rubber Killer turned into a worldwide best-seller. The new version Killer Pro comes with the same topsheet, but is laminated with a revolutionalry new sponge. This slightly harder combination enables keeping the disruptive effect obtained through blocking, counter-attaching, and hitting, while reaching higher speed. Blocking will produce a low bouncing ball.
The disruptive potential of Killer Pro is also unveiled while playing actively. Counter-attacking and straight hitting produces a ball that somewhat "skids" over the surface of the table. Killer Pro enables you to reach high speed, producing a ball that is both very fast and low bouncing.
