Slow, but not super slow like harder 729 rubbers. Good spin and control. Suits beginners well.

Was curious how good a $5 rubber could be. Got the 2.2mm version for slightly faster speed. Glued on my spare Avalox BT550 blade and was pleasantly surprised. Easily bottoms out to wood on strong loops and light smashes, but I like it this way. It has a definitive offensive CRRAACCCK sound when bottoming out. Did I mention this is really light? For Chinese-style brush stroke players, this rubber works just fine for stroke development. Might be a bit slow for some, but what you lose in speed you gain in control.

It starts out slow and tacky, but then it loses its tackiness and speeds up noticeably. It's a surprisingly fast rubber after this point. So make sure to break it in before you start using it in tournament play. The weight of my sheet was 44g when cut, so it's about average weight, not light.

Great rubber to do all strokes. Great allround rubber for attacking. Get it and be happy that you did not spend $30 + for other rubbers
