Tacky rubbers are the commonly used rubbers. These rubbers have a smooth and sticky surface and are best in providing spin on the ball in general due to the tackiness and amount of rubber contacting the ball. The tackiness of the rubber is directly proportional to the amount of spin it produces.

Post subject: Re: Whats more important, Rubber or Blade? The rubber is vastly more important. I mean you could go from long pips to T05 inverted. That’s a dramatic difference, it changes how you play entirely.
Tackiness is the characteristic of “stickiness” of a rubber. Most Chinese rubbers have some level of tackiness where you can lift up a ball by simply pressing the rubber on top of the ball, and raising it up.

The most expensive rubber on the market is the Butterfly Tenergy 05. Just one sheet will cost more than the Stiga Pro Carbon for example.
Cost. In terms of cost, you’ll probably need to spend around £90-£150 for a really good advanced table tennis bat (ready-made). A custom-made table tennis bat can cost anywhere from £90 to £300+.
R&D costs money. Sponsorship’s for athletes and events costs money (butterfly does this more than any other and naturally has the highest rubber prices). Overhead and salaries cost money. And players/hobbyists are more that willing to pay the high price.
