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, reliable 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.
