blade vs rubber

I recently got a new combo package from Paddle Palace that I really like.  The blade is a Tibhar Lebesson and the rubber is Genius Sound with 2.0 rubber.  I have a tendency to go through rubber very quickly.  The Genius rubber is $55 a sheet.  If I buy $20 rubber with the same spin/speed rating will there be much difference?  I'm hoping it's the blade that I like and the rubber is all the same.

With so many rubber choices out there it would take forever to try them all.  Unfortunately I play in a small club, so trying other players equipment doesn't give me much of a selection.

If you want a faster rubber try Haifu Shark II:

For a slower but more controlled rubber try DHS G666:

or Palio CJ8000:
