SHORT VERSION This is more "Cursed" rubber rather than "Evil" rubber, because while the rubber itself no evil, it spin changing capabilities tempting me for "doing evil". :) LONG VERSION Want to try 0.5 mm, but can't find it anywhere in Bogor, Indonesia, so I tried ox instead, on Defense Alpha blade. Even at ox, this rubber is not too slow, faster than superblock, and just a little bit slower than Tackiness Chop 2 I can generate good spin on chop, just less than Tackiness Chop 2, better than Feint Long 2, but I can kill the spin with simple push, so, using very small blade manipulation, range of spin can be generated [Insert Evil Smile Here]. :) No reversal, just what I want. :) Choosing it over Superblock. :) UPDATE Found Tulpe Sponge 0.6 mm, and attach it behind Dr Evil. Better spin and flat hit than ox, and spin killing characteristic intact. Similar speed to Tack Chop 2. Became slightly more susceptible to incoming spin. Will keep it for now. :) UPDATE Tulpe sponge too fast! Good player kill me! All my chop fly lo~ng to next table T T Changing to Blutenkirsche,and I shall update the result. :)

I'm an old school defender that rarely attacks, this is the best rubber I've found overall, with a number of useful qualities I like. While not to the degree of anti spin it is fairly insensitive to opponents spin, useful both in serving and rallies. It has great control, in part because of its insensitivity to spin. It can also generate significant spin through chopping. I rate it about a 7 for spin and can't understand why the rating on here is so low. I was playing with this and gambler reflectiod on the other side whilst twiddling and thought they were the same for spin - had to get rid of reflectoid for more variation. It is also good for smashing in OX. It has gears in the sense that it's very slow usually, but if you hit it hard and it hits with the wood. Lastly it is outstanding at returning opponents smashes, because it's so slow and insensitive to spin. The downside is that it isn't great for topspin shots or serves. Not everyone's cup of tea.

Good as a hardbat rubber. Feels a tad fast for chopping to me - definitely don't put sponge under it (it is made for OX use). Blocks okay, but doesn't reverse like an LP.

This has to be the best rubber for chopping you can chop anything unfortunately all it does is kill the spin and can set your opponent up for drives however it's deception is good on the basis your opponent doesn't expect drives, loops and smashes to be returned with so much ease and so low the rubber is very slow even on a fast blade great fun to use and brilliant practice rubber for learning to chop with pips
