Friendship/729 Aurora Max PRO
A very cheap rubber with decent speed. It is much more linear than many tensor giving it extra control. With pro points out of the way, let's get to the cons:
When you remove it from the sealed package and the foil, the rubber forms a O shape with oposite edges touching. This makes glueing and cutting impossible. I've been able to glue and re-glue this rubber only heavily boosting it to reverse the O effect. Even then you have to take care, too much boost and it will bubble up. If you don't boost, the O shape effect is so strong it will come off your blade eventually. Rubber is nice and solid, orange-reddish looks durable. The topsheet is the problem. Slightly tacky it will stain and look bad imediately after a few balls. It also smells and looks like cheap tire rubber, durability of topsheet is poor. All in all is not worth it, but is a good step in the right direction, maybe next version without factory tunning it and with a better top sheet.
