The Red sponge is the slowest and softest Spinlab sponge, you can watch the video and learn more about the different characteristics per mm. The red 0,8 mm sponge is particularly interesting and widely used, especially under the long pimpled rubbers. These sponges were first created to optimize the performance of the antitop Vortex but they’re also very much appreciated with long pimples rubbers, with short pimpled rubbers and to slow down the topsheet of the smooth rubbers.

We want to preface this by saying that no sponge is better or more efficient than the others, it all depends on the player’s preferences. Every sponge has its properties and advantages: as an example, when the sponge is thicker and softer it’s usually slower and allows for more control, therefore it’s perfect for the players that play defense or for those who only use the antitop for defense purposes. On the other hand when the sponge is harder and less thick, it makes for more ball reversal and is more efficient in the attacking fase of the game as well as in the pushing. In the tutorial we’ve created you’ll be able to see every type of sponge available so far (we’ll have new ones coming shortly) and therefore choose the sponges that best complement your way of playing. In our antitop VORTEX’s presentation video, the player Amine Kalem is using a yellow sponge which will be available very soon, but in the meantime he’ll be using the 2 mm beje sponge.
