This rubber has its perfect combination of speed and spin.
This glutinosity can stay much longer than normal rubber, and this rubber can catch the ball easily and wonderfully, it can also obtain good flying arcs while creating strong spin. Moreover, the hard sponges can ensure enough strength and speed, real feeling of hitting balls, which is different from normal tensor rubbers that has inanity feelings. This rubber is even suitable for middle and short attacks.

I love this rubber. I use the Blue V on my FH and the softer red Vlon-S on my BH. It took some time to get used to the touch shots as the rubber feels very stiff at first, and arrives really tacky but the tackiness fades. Throw angles are very different at different speeds as mentioned elsewhere, so it requires some patience. The gears are unbelievable. Soft hitting the rubber does not seem very fast, but when you connect properly the ball just shoots out like a bullet. I play mostly drive shots with spin for control. Much more spin on my backhand. The rubber suits my style by rewarding the higher impact drives with much more speed. Control is really excellent at speed, but less so for the slower hits. The rubber is very light and stinks when out of package, but that is a fond memory now (I have purchased it twice (x2) over 1.5 years).

This is a very goor rubberthat as any other rubber got to be used with the adecuate racket but overall is a very good rubber i wouldnn´t recommend it for unexperienced players changing from a slow rubber because there´s a lot of difference, iwould recommend it for more advancer players due to it's tensor.

Excellent BH rubber, a surprise for the price but a good find. Did not like it on my FH but will keep it as a nice BH rubber, good blocking,flips,looping backspin, performs well and has good control, for $12 hard to beat.

Not for european players. You have to work very hard to produce spin, and it lacks power. maybe good for backhand for cpan player.

Review for Darker Vlon blue sponge @ max. Physical properties: Rubber comes in a standard pack with paper and plastic around it. It has a firm top sheet on a nice looking blue sponge. If there was no brand printed on it, one could easily say this looks the same as DHS blue sponge rubbers. Rubber is tacky, and top sheet looks very well produced. Sponge feels hard, for a purpose of comparison maybe 40 or 41 degree DHS scale. Control: Personally I would say this rubber is for active players who play tournaments and train hard every day. Judging throw angle is a bit difficult. It appears to be lower at slow speeds and higher in faster game. Without the ability to judge throw angle in a good way I am stuck with some control issues. Speed and spin: These two are very much connected to the control of this rubber. On a slow shots rubber produces ok speed and spin, but when you go harder it is almost hard to believe. There is no way to bottom out this beast. On smashes and hard loops it is even faster than H3 Neo. All in all if I could play as if I was 20 years old this would be perfect rubber, but nowadays to get the most out of this monster I would probably get heart attack. Recommendation: Highly recommended for experienced, active, agile club players and above. People who like to go all out and dont mind swinging hard all the time. If you are beginner, defender, bit older or anything else please stay away from this or you will feel like average Joe in Formula 1 car going 50 mph and thinking you are amazing ï. Enjoy life and TT!
