GEWO | Hype KR Pro 47.5
Hype KR Pro 47.5 is the next-stage rubber of the GEWO Hype series. In this rubber, the performance
and playing characteristics of the Hype XT series were developed to the next level in cooperation
with Korean table tennis legend Yoo Nam Kyu. In 1988, Yoo Nam Kyu became the first Olympic gold
medalist in table tennis in his home capital of Seoul - In 1989, he became world champion. He was
the national coach of South Korea, one of the major table tennis nations in the world, for 10 years, and
continues to be a national hero in his home country.
30 years of experience in top-class sport have sharpened Yoo Nam Kyu senses for top products,
which has been a great challenge to the GEWO development team. Thanks to YOO-POWER and the
proven DGC40+ technology, the open-pore, new pink sponge provides for ultimate attacking power.
Compared to GEWO Hype EL Pro 47.5, the sponge design featuring YOO POWER is made for even
more attacking performance. The proven DGC40+ „Dynamic Grip Concept“ guarantees uniform, reli-
able coupling of the ball when it hits the bat, its new surface texture prevents the ball from „slipping“.
This provides for more precision of all strokes. Yoo Nam Kyo demanded nothing less than convincing
catapult effect, great spin and high forgivingness without negative effects on speed or control. GEWO
came up to his expectations, and we are proud of the result: Compared to GEWO Hype XT Pro 50.0,
this Korea version of the Hype series produces more spin, with negligible loss of speed. This rubber
is performance at its best.
• For spin-relying attackers looking for maximum power and spin. For players who are willing to
do the training work required.
• Super-dynamic, new pink GEWO sponge with spinny top rubber sheet.
• Most dynamic Hype Series rubber besides GEWO Hype XT Pro 50.0.
