    Soft for cold weather and hard for warm weather. I use hard all year round, I just can't get on with soft as I find it drags too much. Not that I trad much anyway.

    I've had enough of the hard rubber now, so I'm going to switch back to ettore medium which is a nice rubber.

    I'm trying to get hold of a new bag of rubber without paying extra delivery if anyone's got any ideas?

    I don't think you'll go far wrong with that so long as its not the green stuff, never tried it myself but it gets bad reviews. I'm going to be looking out fo rthe ettore again though as I never had issues with that.
