Excellent sticky rubbers. Speed is enough for power play by rotation. The better the technique, the faster the ball flies. Control at the level. The sponge is tough, but softer than Bloom POWER. The top layer is soft. Stickiness is average. For me, good rubbers on Backhand.

This is not for play open hand style playing, normal European topspin style...this is a great stuff for the most people because not my. Conclusion: this is to high throw angel for me,a little bit bouncy, my style better with arc ore power edition

This is not a typical chinese rubber with very thin tacky topsheet and moderated catapult effect. This is medium heavy (uncut: 60g), very spiny and powerful rubber. Easy serve return and short game, reasonably low sensitive to incoming spin, flat hit is possible. Interestingly, this is not faster than POWER version, but higher throw and more rotation for 40+ poly ball. Overall, SPEED version is very usable rubber, same performance to Palio AK47 with slightly different advantages, but still the Palio HK1997 Gold is the standard for me. --Bloom POWER H47, red : 70g uncut weight --Bloom SPEED H47, red: 60g uncut weight

I tried this on my forehand mainly for looping. Red 2.2mm H45. I'm coming from DHS Skyline TG2 NEO 2.15mm H39. Compared to my Skyline, it's a bit slow, about the same control. Tackiness is a little less and when I loop, there's not so much catapult effect as you get from Skyline/Hurricane NEO rubbers. The better part when looping, is that it's much easier to keep the ball on the table than with the faster DHS Hurricane NEO Rubbers. This is not a bad rubber at all, but for me it's a step down. The best thing with it is that it's quite light. I felt a big difference compared to the Skyline in weight. Weight cut 2.2mm H45: 44-46g
