Thanks to slightly shortened contact time and a revised rubber mixture,
A-B-S 2 EVO produces a little more spin reversal.
It is also crucial that the ball "pulls down" noticeably more when blocking, even when blocking on fast, rotationless topspin strokes with ABS ball. This significantly disrupts the opponent's next attacking ball.
When blocking on fast topspin balls, A-B-S 2 EVO also offers the possibility to "press counter" in addition to the passive block as well as alternatively, so that the ball lands faster with undercut at the opponent. This causes confusion and overall an enrichment of the smooth anti game.
With A-B-S 2 EVO, all classic smooth anti-attack techniques such as pressure scare and lifts can still be carried out, so that an all-round dangerous and quite varied interference play can be wound up.
The active techniques, including "counter-pressing" on topspin, are best performed with the thinner sponge thicknesses 1.8 and 2.1mm. The thicker thicknesses 2.3 and 2.5mm offer even more cushioning and control for passive block play.
Available with a damping sponge in the thicknesses 1.8, 2.1, 2.3 and 2.5mm: 1.8mm (best spin reversal, very slow, very good control) 2.1mm (best spin reversal, very slow, very good control) 2.3mm (very good spin reversal, even slower, very good control) 2.5mm (still very good spin reversal, slowest, best control).
