729-2 fast attack with loops at short court

The elasticity of the rubber is considerable with smaller shape change and powerful friction which makes accelerated loops easily to create. The soft sponge makes ball controlling free and backhand loops easy. For it is easier to stir the ball up at the table, it is an efficient weapon for those players who apply fast attack with loops at short court.

Speed and Spin and Control is rated without speed glue in comparision to other rubbers without speed glue. I would rate Tenergy as 9.5 or 10 for spin and NEW hard tensors as 9.5 0r 10 for speed. The Tackiness of the rubber is obvious especially for the black one. However, this is only there initially. The tackiness disappears after time, and the rubber becomes a grippy one that NEVER STALLS on me before. (Unlike even roxon or an old sriver). I rate the sponge hardess as medium compared to other Chinese rubbers. Its pretty hard compared to tensors (yes, even the so-called hard sponged Roxon 500 kind). What i like about this rubber is the excellent control and many gears it has. I think it misses a top gear that would be there if you speed-glued it, but its sufficient when combined with a fast blade close distance to mid distance. One would have to generate his own power to take full advantage of this rubber. A very durable rubber at a cheap price. Outstanding control. Definitely more than a match for srivers to me. (not for those looking for extremely fast speed-glue effect rubber - this rubber doesn't have any)

Rubber for children. Very short speed. Rotation - medium. For learning games for children. I bought, because the description was encouraging, someone probably did the eggs. Semi professional or amateur - you can not play with this rubber. I would say that it is more suitable for a defensive style. Next gum goes to the basket ...

Used red one, max thickness on BH. Sponge is 45° but feeling is not so hard. No catapult effect, medium speed, very good control. I didn't like it anyway, no feeling ... I suppose this rubber is only suitable for fast glue or with chinese booster.

Hard sponge (i think about 48) , very good control for short push, chop, block. Topspins are possible but with good technique. Hitting is good but indeed not hyper speedy. Good rubber for the backhand to slow the game down and to disturb opponent with short pushes. Very good at service return (tested against a B4 class Belgian player, i would say 2400 usatt rated). No catapult effect at all compared to german tensors !

Only about the 5th rubber I have used--so take this for what it is worth. By far the fastest rubber/sponge combo I have used. I will have to get used to the speed to keep return shots on the table. Spin is real good for serves and short game. It seems to have plenty of grip for looping as well. Sponge is much harder/more dense than I am used to. I was a fraid it wouldn't grip, but the top sheet is tacky enough that it still grabs and spins plenty.

Review it!
