Waran II is the fastest Sp i've tried. I used to play with original Waran but this new brand of waran II replaced them.
My play is based on lift the first ball and then smash the next one. I had some difficult to lift the ball on the firsts days of testing this rubber but after adjust the angle the issue was gone out however flicking is easier with this rubber.
The sound when you smash with it is awesome and funny.
---This rubber is the best for smash, active blocks, short game with flick.

Very fast but quite accurate, good for placement at speed. Not very good for passive play but excellent for over the table backhand attack. Active blocks off the bounce as well as flicks are its forte.

Way too fast for what I'm used to. The ball shoots of my blade and doesn't seem to dip down at all. Therefore, I missed too many shots whereas with the Waran 1 I did not have this issue. Additionally, the hard sponge made it harder for me to lift backspin balls.
Update: This beast just needed to be tamed. Now I appreciate the hard sponge. It makes the Waran II very reliable, consistent and linear, where softer sponged pips tend to be way harder to control. This is now my favorite short pip by far.
