This is a boss rubber. I have this on a zlc Apolinia and it feels like a speed glued rubber. Took me about two sessions out to adjust to it but now I’m looping from my backhand like kreanga lol. I recommend this for players who know there strokes. This rubber will feel slow unless you hit the ball well but the spin potential is very rewarding. I two wing loop attack and play a very aggressive on and off the table top spin style. I dont think I’ll ever use anything else ever again! I’m also using this on both forehand and backhand with 2.1mm sponge on both sides. I consider myself an advanced player ;)

I played with Dignics and Tenergy 05 Hard on a Viscaria. Dignics felt harder than 05 hard. The spin Dignics can generate is phenomenal. I haven't seen that in any other rubber, not even the tacky chinese ones. But that's only when you grip/brush the ball hard with perfect technique and timing. The smallest mistakes are penalised with the ball flying off. Even the short game needs adjusting as the ball pops vertically up. The speed is much lower than the rating given here. The speed will come from the power of your arm/waist, the sponge is not doing much. My rating is 8.5. It feels like a more responsive, non-tacky, hard chinese rubber. It is very demanding physically. Footwork must be fast. Flat hitting is not an option. It felt uncomfortable on the Viscaria as the dwell time was really low. It suits softer, more flexible blades better. It doesn't have many gears. It was clearly designed for advanced players with above average technique, footwork and stamina who can utilise its phenomenal ability to generate spin. higher arc compared to the linear trajectory of the 05 Hard. Tenergy 05 Hard is more forgiving, with a slightly softer sponge which makes it easier to play with. I recommend starting with 05 Hard before moving to Dignics.

Blade : Amultart (86g); BackHand. 2.1mm. Red. Weight : 48g. Very high speed, very good spin (played against chopper). Low throw angle, very direct. Short game : very good control, like T05Hard. Block : easy, not so sensitive to spin. Serve : very spiny ; chikita : super easy. Mid-distance : very fast and direct but still spiny. Ball is going very closed to the net. Cons : not so good for smash (T05<D05<T05Hard = best for smashing). Maybe better with 1.9mm (not tried). Overall : if you are not in.a good day, D05 will not appreciate. But if you have a good technique, then you will be surprised by the spin and speed, without loosing too much control (compared to T05). But the feeling is really harder than T05, and a little bit less than T05Hard. I use T05H 1.9 on FH, and it is enough spiny, good speed, excellent in counter-spin, and good in short game and flicks. Overall : Amultart is maybe too hard and stiff for this rubber, or 2.1mm is really too fast for this blade. I missed points at mid-distance, with BH, playing strait (not diagonal), because it was too fast. But in diagonal, I could send very spiny and fast balls, then control game with blocks, and moving on step to finish with active block. D05 on FH : not my favorite, because I use smash a lot, and the ball is flying too much. I have better success rate with T05Hard.

I only had a couple of sessions with it at this moment and my first impressions are : It has higher arc then tenergy 05, It grips the ball a bit better so its easier to attack half long balls for example or lift underspin. The overall feeling is similar to boosted tenergy 05 ( I enjoyed it more then 05) and it feels a notch softer than tenergy 05 but very similar hardness overall. It provides a loud noise and it is abit lighter then tenergy 05 (67 uncut comparing to 70). Although it has alot of control I wouldnt recommend it for a backhand rubber unless you are a pro because it has high arc and long catapult effect. It is rumoured to have a very good durability so maybe the price comparing to tenergy 05 is barely acceptable but still very overpriced. I can say at the moment for my game and the feeling it provides its a nice upgrade and I am using a blade with low through so it paired nicely.
