In our club I have a need for cheap rubbers for two purposes: first, we maintain a stock of "loaner paddles" for the beginners and recreational players.  In the past, I've mostly recycled donated used rubbers (even Tenergy!) on these paddles, but I'm looking for something that maintains grip longer

The second need is that I sometimes put together cheap paddles for beginners looking to buy.  These are typically better than pre-made paddles but not as good as most of the stuff in your average Paddle Palace catalog.  These paddles are new (nothing used) but they must be cheap.

I've been looking through the rubbers at ttnpp.com, but I don't know enough to make good choices.  So I'm looking for advice.

Task 1 is to find rubbers that are super-cheap, maintain good grip, and are generally durable.  These will be for the loaner paddles.  Performance is not a concern.

Task 2 is to find rubbers for cheap paddles to sell.  Durability isn't quite as critical, but, again, performance isn't important as long as it's reasonable spin and control.

So what can people recommend?

As a former buyer who tried these 729 from TTNPP for exactly the purpose described, I can tell you these were some of the worst sheets of rubber I have purchased.

The most annoying thing was that they actually have a performance DROPOFF as stroke QUALITY increases.

Cole's Super XP 2008 or spending on 729 Super FX EL that passed quality control would be a better choice.

Is there a reason why ttnpp is the only seller to consider?

Because there's good deals by other sellers too.

I'm familiar with ttnpp and I had some other, unrelated stuff that I wanted to buy there.
