Dr. Neubauer GORILLA is our answer to the banning of frictionless long pimples. It is the perfect choice for all players who have previously used our 'Super Block', 'Inferno' or 'Scalpel' rubbers.
This revolutionary Anti-Topspin rubber enables a highly effective blocking game, even against strong topspin shots. GORILLA offers a decisive disruptive effect because the ball can be returned either short or long over the net. In both cases the ball tends to stay low after the bounce, which makes it extremely hard for an opponent to keep on looping the ball.
The good control of the rubber makes for easy returning of services, either passively or aggressively.
GORILLA is now available with a slow dampening sponge with much better control.
This combination offers remarkable playing characteristics:
It also produces a very good spin reversal while blocking on topspin balls with a lot of rotation.
The versions with 1.2 produces a decisive disruptive effect while blocking however they offer even better attacking possibilities through aggressive pushing and lifting.
