This rubber is monster tacky in both red and black, way beyond Hurricanes and 729. This is differently tacky too, it isn't really affected by humidity so the 999T plays the same in all conditions. I play an all-round style with equal usage of most all shots in the game and this rubber has helped me improve all of them. Speed is definitely there when you need it; however, the rubber does not do the work for you so stroke mechanics are paramount. Spin is monstrous, by far the spinniest rubber I've ever seen, yet no-spin shots are still possible. Super 999T was a great investment and I don't plan on using anything else anytime soon!

999T is SLOW & Tacky & pretty heavy. Not super hard & it does NOT have a 'dead' feeling.
The Good: it's slow. This is good since you will make less errors & if you play w/o hesitation and make correct full strokes the ball will go in. I say full strokes because w/faster rubbers we have a tendency to make a half effort.. If we are worried about the catapult or the speed/spin of your opponent's ball we tend to just try to make a half block/swing & the angle of your bat will essentially be the luck of the draw as to whether you can get the ball in. W/ this rubber you can make an active block w/confidence make good placements to keep your opponent defensive.
The Bad: it's slow. Keeping the ball on the table isn't the same as winning the point. Advanced players have the footwork & power to keep attacking. But I tend to win many more games with this slow rubber than Euro rubbers.
The Good: SPIN for days. Serves have a crazy amount of spin. (If you're a crappy server nothing will help you except more practice)
Here you have a slow rubber that you can put massive amount of spin. 3rd ball attack w/ a slow spinny ball? Yes Sir! Brush looping is when you will see the speed. Brush loops will get you than nice arc and 'kick' on your opponent's side. Speed is there with this rubber but you need to hit the ball w/ some force.
Short game is GREAT. You can do effortless pushes to keep the ball low and short. But you can also engage the tackiness and put some serious underspin on the ball to change the pace & depth. Against no-spin serves or serves with not much spin you can do a "chop push" that is super low, fast and "deep".
999T is good "lower intermediate" rubber that you can even play until advanced. I feel this rubber gives a lot of the benefits of TACKY rubbers w/o the fear of bat angle that comes with some DHS rubbers. There's zero catapult effect. Strong strokes will give you plenty of speed & you will have the confidence to hit them.

a good rubber, spinny serves, easy 3rd ball, excellent placement, not slow at all. It is fair to say this is an easy play chinese rubber (easy version of H3Pro for example), with maybe a bit less deadly balls but still deadly enough, especially because of the outstanding placement you can get! It seems to be a very forgiving weapon for quick attack style, pressuring the opponent from the start (serve and 3rd ball). For the price 5$, you can't go wrong!
FH warm up vs Stiga Mantra M (known for it's speed and power)
And 3rd ball attack training with 999t Super - here I am using it:

I am beginner who want develop stroke, therefore I want control over speed. I am using stiga wrb blade classic allround with main purpose to get flexibility of blade and control. I match this with 999t (of course) .the hardness is medium with 44/45 around degrees. I really love this rubber despite the price.My backhand, My forehand get less out of table.I definetly recommend any beginner for using this. You won't regret.

So I ordered it at Ali for like 5$/piece. I expected that it would be more tacky. However, for me it was surprisingly fast. Maybe that's due to some unusual glue I used, but who knows. My blade was wooden only.
And it's heavy, man! Putting 2 sheets on a single blade made my racket weighing 197 gramms!
