This is the Air Scirocco (Inverted Rubber) table tennis inverted rubber, a new innovation from Air.
Air is proud to introduce its premier rubber, the Scirocco. The Scirocco comes in three versions: SN, SR and SF.
SN, SR and SF use Bios Green technology, featuring an incredible new sponge that maintains its speed with all glues, even the water-based VOC-free glue.
The SF is a not only spin rubber but also a speed rubber. But SN and SR are much faster than the SF model. Both are very bouncy and give a tremendous catapult effect. They are excellent for top spinning, looping, and counter looping.
SF is for leading players who demand ultimate spin and speed combined with a sensitive touch. The SF version offers a soft sponge, createing a truly sensational touch and feel for the player. It gives crisp clear sound on striking the ball for maximum feedback.
Sponge hardnesses: 33°, 37°, 39°, 41°, 43°, 45°

An amazing backhand rubber. The right amount of everything in a rubber. It's not tacky but has a lot of bite on the ball. Good for backhand flicks.

Scirocco a new rubber from Air TT. a small Chinese Co. with interesting technology(German).I use it on a Clipper CR non WRB.It got good spin ,speed & also catapult.IMO this rubber should be used on Of/Of+ blade to be effective.I have used
air Illumina for years so I am familiar with Air rubbers and recommended it.I believe in US only ColesTT carry their rubbers and alsoblades.

This is a review for the summer/fall 2018 version of Scirocco and UL, not the 3 listed versions at the time of this post (SF, SN, SR). This is a mild to at most moderately tacky hybrid rubber. I have used it in the 45 degree red (Coles now lists this as 42 degree-but overall it feels harder than other 42 degree sponge/top sheet combinations). This is a solid rubber that does most things well. It seems significantly faster than other chinese rubbers-but I do not boost and that may change things. In fact a little more dynamic sponge would be nice. It is not a super easy rubber to loop. I have to hit with it regularly or I have a hard time controlling it. I will have occasional topspin shots fly off the table if my technique is poor. I feel it is significantly faster than assasinS. I would recommend this rubber to someone who plays regularly and wants a firmer feeling rubber. When I rip a 3rd ball at the table it definitely has power. I find it works well on my FH, but is too hard for my BH.

Nice rubber for offensive players. However, the top spin performance has poor quality. For me, this is the only negative point of this rubber. I have it for 6 months now.

Really nice spin for serves and loops, feel for the ball and overall control are excellent. Way better than Mark V or Sriver. It works well for either FH or BH.
