R47 and T05 both feel the same to me in terms of hardness, however r47 feels extra cushy, I think they both have the same kind of dead feeling in lower gears, may be R47 is slightly less spin sensitive.

I think R47 has a bit higher threshold of force that you need to cross before you can get spin, but its not that much where you won't be able to figure it out. Its very grippy, so the ball stays on the rubber or feels like it does for long.

I am currently using Tibhar EL-S but find it a bit too soft feeling. Is Rasanter R47 likely to be a suitable alternative?

Thanks for that feedback. Is that because the topsheet is a lot softer? As far as I know, the sponge is harder (47 v 45).

Anyone compared EL-S and R50?

both my R47 2.0 are 46 grams on a 84g Vega Pro ST blade; that gives me a super balanced light setup at 176 grams total.

EL-S feels softer to me and bottoms out more easily than R47 does. This is subjective, I guess, partly from playing style and blade used.

+1.  R47's topsheet is harder than EL-S's IMO.  Sponge differences are probably negligible.
This was a great signature until I realised it was overrated.

I have the same feeling. with EL-S is much more easier to kick in.
For me R47 seems too hard.

ELS, I didn't like the way the arc used to flatten out when driving.  R47 is right in my zone.  When deciding between these rubbers, you have to look at your technique and swing speeds.
I like putting heavy topspin on the ball...

I am waiting to test Aurus Prime before I seriously commit to R47 for a 6 month period.  But I could stay on Karis H to keep a bet alive...

You need to select "United States" in the country option on the bottom left of the page.

It's fast, linear, good spin.  Suits lots of different blades depending on your needs.  It lacks initial catapult, so if you need that then it might be better on a harder, bouncier blade.  But it's all down to your own style really and I haven't used it on a blade where I've thought "yuk" yet.
This was a great signature until I realised it was overrated.

it's probably my technique but even on the violin I find the R47 2.0 or max not forgivable in the pushing; it seems I make more mistakes than when using -say- M2 or 80fx; no problem it might be a good thing so I loop more but... I want it all Unhappy

I didn't find it good enough on S5 as well which is similar to violin.

It is more difficult to kick in this rubber on this blade. Touch shots also not understandable. It can be dead to certain moment and sometimes just shot quickly.

I sold my R47, I simply do not have the strength required to use it on my fh, the rubber is a spin machine, and almost feels like a well juiced hurricane provincial.

On one hand, I am annoyed because I wanted that sheet.

On the other hand, your early descriptions of the rubber were confusing. Thanks for returning to my reality.

NL, sorry I didn't know you were interested in that sheet, I would have given you mine but i had tried falco'ing it to see if i could salvage it, but nope, no such luck.

I think my initial impressions were wrong, as I had only used it in practice, where i was mostly in the right position to be able to hit the ball. But after playing matches, I realized how much better my technique/footwork needs to be to utilize this one effectively.
