A nice rubber which is a perfect trade off between the speed and control+spin. I use this on my FH, and Flextra on my BH on Joola Rosskopf emotion carbon. Pretty good control, tho smashes are returned by opponents. Looping is a breeze (Tho I relie mostly on the smashes, and started learning looping with this rubber). Still need to perfect my loops as the balls are returned by opponents, but as a lob. So takes mostly 2 strokes to finish. It is slightly heavier than Flextra and so sometimes i feel more drag on FH. It would be really good if BTY can make this as light as flextra. Heaviness is the reason why i went for flextra on the BH. Else i would have gone with Tackifire Soft itself. Thanks to BTY.

nice for chopping with sufficient speed for attacks.

I use it for my FH and I must say its a very controlable rubber with good spin. It is not fast but it's fast enough to finish points. Its worthed the price. Also you must pair it with a harder blade.

The speed is signicantly lower than the speed of the Palio CJ 8000 Biotech 39-41!!! The catapult effect is very low, therefore the control is very good! For forehand it's imo only a rubber for lower class player or beginner...

Excellent control-oriented tacky rubber from BTY. It's not as tacky as Chinese rubbers but its soft sponge and tacky topsheet gives nice spin generation. Decent speed with a fast blade. Very nice all around control and just a very good all around rubber with enough power to finish points.

Review it!
