I'm a noob, i know. But i've played for a long time and have been playing different rubbers and blades. So i can say: 1) Good news. This thing is very controlable. You can recieve almost everything. 2) Bad news. It's heavy, thick and hard. I've been waiting more softness from 2,2 mm sponge. Maybe for someone it's not the disadvantages. For me it is. 3) Fact. It's not tacky. If you like topspins, forget about it

Is a cheap rubber with some quality issues on the topsheet. (weak around the edges) I got it on black with Max japanese sponge . It's speed is medium, but way faster than most beginners rubbers and similar to H3 Neo. The hard Topsheet surface is not tacky at all behaving like a Japanese rubber but hard. The pip's height is minimal combined with its medium-hard sponge the ball doens't sink into it and shoots the ball with lesser spin. On Forehand attacks loops and topspins result in a low throw angle with flat trajectory. On Backhand is better to just push, since it lack of tackiness is not good for chopping. Above averge rubber, as long as it doesn't show problems with the topsheet quality.

I bought the japanese sponge type, well, this is the Best Choice for the beginner's level. Not recommended for championship play.

i used this on a skitt carbon, it works well ! can do many things, but not good at far away, but never mind long balls coz you can win good points near and mid with this... like all 729 its cheap." low profile " in clubs if youre using it . but with skills it is really good

good and cheap, mine was japanese sponge, it has good dwell time for control, ball placement, and loops too. good for close and mid plays i experimented it on all wood coz its the only available blade left -thats why it lacks speed, but if i put this on a carbon blade - its another story

Review it!
