Description of Tibhar Genius

Tibhar Genius is rich in spin for the offensive game! GENIUS is obviously focused on spin, and more spin in this case also signifies more speed. More spin also means that the angle of the ball rebound is more upright, conferring a bow-formed ball curve. This gives more precision to your strokes and therefore puts your adversary under pressure. The new geometry of the inverted pimples enables a dynamic and spin-rich game. Thanks to the new caoutchouc composition, the rubbers last longer.
GENIUS -- Simply Genius!

Reviews of the Tibhar Genius

Review DeVoured said this on August 30, 2009:

tried this on a borrowed paddle, it played different from other tensor. the topsheet looks less fragile and definitely has more grip than other tensor, however it's not as spinny as tenergys or boosts. however in terms of spin this is a great improvement in comparism to other esn-rubbers.

sponge hardness is about the same as platin soft.

Switched from Tenergy05 but this one is feels quite different. Feels slow, soft but feels more tacky and spinny. This rubber needs a harder sponge IMO then it will be much better.
Durability is horrible compare to Tenergy. Not even close. Sponge does not stick very well. Needs 2-3 gluing before it completely stick. I'm a Tibhar fan but I'm going back to Tenergy or Vega.
Review Puck said this on May 17, 2010:

Very nice rubber!
Very good control and spin. Fast as needed.
Switched from Tenergy 64 on my Donic Waldner Senso Carbon because it was too hard.
Durability: 4 months of play, 7 hours a week, and its seems like new, or near.

The best rubber I've used!

This was a disappointment. it is meant to be spinny with spring-like sponge to give nice trajectory but this is not the case. the sponge feels very soft with little bouncing and the sheet is not gripy to apply heavy spin. it is not good at all for serving and looping. what this rubber does nicely though is blocking.

very good spinny tensor rubber. its not blazingly fast but definitely not a slow rubber at all. one of the best rubbers i have tried and very good value for the money
Review 0802988 said this on February 2, 2012:

Review sipp said this on March 2, 2012:

I tried a lot in the past and found my rubber. Is perfect in 1,8 mm and better than tenergys. Creates spinny serves, good blocking and powerful topspins.

Review Pandereta said this on May 8, 2012:

I Probe this rubber , but my sensation was very poor, this rubber lokks like tacky chinese rubber.

The spin is not sufficient to create high arcs.

I like TIbhar very match but sorry i don´t like this nothing. I'm go back to Aurus, for me is very better

Review krok707 said this on April 19, 2013:

I play Maze T-teh OFF, FH T64FX 1.9, BH T05FX 1.7 or T64FX 1.7. I had the opportunity
to test several Tibhar's new blades and rubbers (2 weeks).
The rubber Genius is soft so the blade is better to be hard. I tested the Genius 1.7-1.8
on several different blades and found the most suitable is Tibhar Combat (new design).
This combination is perfect for attacking game close to table and mid distance. Spin is
very well controlled so I was able to perform spin as I wanted (short or long, low or
hight arc, more or less rotation). My opponent said me that he had a lot of problems to
understand the spin because my movement of the hand seemed always the same.
Direct hiting was also perfect (almost effortless) regardless the ball rotation, the same
was flipping.
Short to short was is good, blocking also.
Regarding service can't tell because my opponent is very good in returnig. Nevertheless
I presume the service should be good (the spinner opponent hit quite a few balls in net).
The Genius is definitely nice rubber for FH and just a very little less for BH (but also
And, as I always claimed, the other side rubber effects the tested one, so your experience
using Genius might be different in case you play Genius in a pair of some other rubber.
Review igszoctan said this on July 6, 2013:

Less speed and spin than T05 but much better control and far less sensitivity to incoming spin.
Review CornelTT said this on March 14, 2014:

Very good rubber. Quite insensitive to incoming spin, good on serves, great arc for topspin, excelent for pushes and blocks, but the main strength is control. Awsome control, very easy to play with. Highly recommended.
