"Origin" combines the optimized formulation with a new technology of nano-infiltration, making the rubber adhesive coating durable and the spining strong and continuous. Its new design of thin base rubber sheet and semi-towered structure makes the touch clear and the energy transer continuous; its application of patterned rubber makes the friction more intensive; its high-density sponge with delicate cells reduces the energy blocking and increases the speed and rebound strength, making the attack handier.

This is a very interesting rubber. The hard blunt sponge is absorbs energy. But the tacky top sheet is lively and elastic. Push and short game is excellent. The spin is good. Not very reactive and topspin against backspin is not too difficult. Recommended for stiffer blade.

I LOVE this rubber. on FH, Stiga All Classic. I ve been playing with this rubber for 4 months now, and my FH has really improved. My playing style: FH Loop against underspin and Counterloops. The rubber is very dense and hard, not reactive, but the topsheet is very tacky -> typical chinese Feeling. Easy to push short due to tackyness and the unreactive nature of the rubber, but capable of producing massive spin and power when Looping. I can only recommend it if you are a looper and you want a chinese FH rubber.

H3 is too spinny and reactive for me against the best spinniest players. This takes it down a notch. The speed is not too quick, so it has control. I like this rubber a lot and rate it in my top 5 at the moment, because it doesn't try to do too much. This makes it a more successful match for population. I have it on a fairly quick wood blade, but would like to try it on my other blades very soon. I would pick this rubber 1st if I had to do it all again. Hey, I'm picking it right now, but it wasn't available back then... Mark V. So I guess it reminds me of old Mark V playing days (and it pains me to say this, but 25 years ago!) Good all round. Rate it. Get it, try it, and I hope you'll be pleased like I am. Very inexpensive, considering how new and how good it is. I have only had it for a few months, so don't know about durability. Of the 729 range, I have tried 05, 08, transcend cream, transcend purple.

speed is not a factor for this rubber..but the spin is dangerous..good for player who like topspin

so slow. better put it on the fast blade. spin is good but not as good as hurricane. the sponge is quite hard. for me, there is nothing special about this rubber..

Review it!
