TIBHAR SUPER DEFENCE 40 SOFT. Use this softer SUPER DEFENCE version for better feel when standing close, playing early ball pushing. The thin reverse rubber and defensive sponge gets hold of the ball for better placement opportunities. This rubber allows you to play with greater spin potential and tactical defensive advantages. Use the 1.3mm version for total defensive control and consider the 1.6mm sponge version if you want to defend but look for the occasional surprise attack!
