The Presto pads are a further development of the Friendship Battle. Even the slower Presto Spin surprisingly already offers significantly more speed and a much stronger built-in speed glue effect. This high tempo is achieved mainly by the very porous sponge, which was also tuned - not visible, but clearly identifiable by the smell. The top rubber has quite a long inward nubs and is very elastic. However, the grip is somewhat reduced in favor of the tempo. It is thus on the level of many German Tensorbeläge, comparable to the grip of the SpinLord Irbis or the SpinLord Tanuki. The overall gaming behavior is comparable to pads made in Germany. As a result, this rubber is also in direct competition with the Palio AK47 blue / yellow / red. Compared to these, the slow Presto spin is a bit faster, but with a little less effect and similar high control values. Compared to the pads of SpinLord the Presto Spin is faster than the Irbis, but a bit slower than the Tanuki. The version with a 42 degree hard sponge is offered here at Presto Spin, which is the softest version. As a result, the ball stop is quite soft overall, a bit harder than the Spin Lord Tanuki or Irbis, but softer than the Friendship 729 Battle. Incidentally, Presto Spin and Speed ​​are not distinguished by the sponge, but by the upper rubber, which is thicker on the Presto Spin than on the Presto Speed ​​(= slightly longer ball contact time and therefore more spin and control at a slightly lower speed). The Presto Spin has a medium dead weight. The quality of workmanship is comparable to that of Palio rubbers, so good, but not as good as with the Pads of SpinLord.
