The high-volatility solvent in the strong glue volatizes and stimulates the air cells of the sponge to make them swell and the pore wall attenuate, and as a result the elasticity potential energy within the sponge will be increased. The glue will solidify promptly and produce strong grabbing force in an instant which will fix the elasticity potential energy within the sponge, and simultaneously numerous well-regulated high-energy particles will form between the sponge and rubber particles. Just as the chargeable battery can release the stored energy when the circuit is unobstructed, high-energy terminal of the glue release the stored elasticity potential energy in the instant when a player drives the ball so as to strengthen the driving force for the ball to move forward substantially.


The SENSOR technology is in the sponge and the rubber after the pretreatment, rubber in hits a ball in the process to be able anti- to reduce, the energy consumption reduces, like the chart shows the energy to pace back and forth between the granule spacing, conducts to each high end granule, the energy is fully used, releases completely, does not lose. Had achieved in constructs the set of rubber energy conduction not to have the loss the characteristic.

Unsmoothed rubber surface, extremely light rubber quality and tension sponge with high elastic molecule structure have maintained long the resilience in the molecule fiber once it is filled with rubber, reduced the energy losses in the attack to the greatest extent, given full advantages to the rotation and speed of the loop ball and helped the athlete to fully experience the free control effect. It is suitable for an all-round way of playing table-tennis.

A soft, light grippy rubber, ideal for RPB. Grippy surface makes it easy to generate short, spinny serves while not being too sensitive to incoming spin, makes it quite forgiving for push and block. On the other hand, brush loop is not so easy. Looping needs to go through the ball and engage the sponge to generate mechanical spin. Overall this is a spinny allround euro-like rubber, perfect for all-round players who want spin and control.

The rubber is just way too slow. It can not be 12, 11, 11 as claimed. Unless I got a fake one, or it has gotten old, I find it simply too slow. It may be a good defensive rubber, but definitely not offensive.

wew. this rubber doesn't fit on my playing style ..... it is super slow.......... :(

Have this on A Butterfly Primo Vitesse and is very good for the backhand, considering I have s**t for backhand, this rubber really hyped up my backhand. I'm kinda disappointed though, I was hoping it was COMPLETELY non-tacky but this is SLIGHTLY tacky.

I will not give rates to this rubber since I've had only one training experience, but one should have in mind that focus III sponge is very soft, much softer than focus I (which is among softer sponges) or focus II (which is among harder sponges). So players who do not prefer very soft sponges should avoid it. Otherwise, it is good rubber just as focus I & II.

Review it!
