This is the 40° version of the Dawei Inspirit Quattro Ultralight. The topsheet is thinner to reduce the weight and let the ball sink in deeper for more mechanical spin.

Have it as a BH rubber on Stiga OCC. At a beginning, i thought: ok, decent speed and spin, very good control, medium throw angle, medium heavy (mine was 65gr. uncut in max). An allround rubber, good in every department, but nothing to be amazed about (or so i thought). However, I am a two winged attacker/looper, and a could never chopp before, God knows I have tried. But with this rubber, that is starting to happen also. So, that is the amazing thing about this rubber, what ever stroke you wont to execute, everything lands on the table. It is a very very forgiving rubber. P.S.: Give it a few hours of play to brake in, then it starts to open up.

Not a fast rubber by today's standards (no tensor, no speed glue effect, no tunning, ...) but still "livelier" and faster than much more expensive classics like Yasaka Mark V. Great for developing and control players. Spin is not as strong as with chinese tacky rubbers but that is a good thing for me (rubber is less sensitive to incoming spin, more controllable, I can return serves easier). Still, very capable of imparting decent topspin which is very effective when combined with good placement. If you like to finish the rally on the third ball or to serve with strong spin I don't think you will like this rubber. If you are used to fast modern rubbers (stiga boost, tenergy, haifu bluewhale,...) you will find this rubber disappointing. Coming from cheap chinese tacky rubbers, I like this rubber very much because I find it very controllable and predictable even after months of frequent use. It ages well, uniformly. I use this rubber on a wood allround blade. The rubber felt unexpectedly much faster on an off- blade, but in a way I didn't particularly like (I had problems landing the ball on the table after looping). That may have been my fault. Flat hitting and blocking works well. Short game is obviously very good. Pushing is so so (obviously the chinese tacky rubbers where better at this). It is not "ultralight", it is average weight. I can hardly tell the difference in weight and behaviour between the "Dawei Inspirit 38 degress" and the "Dawei Inspirit Quattro Ultralight 40 degrees" on my blade, so if you want to save some money you may give the normal Dawei Inspirit a go (the actual rubber looks identical, no different markings on them). I have never tried the "Dawei Quattro" To sum up, try this rubber if you want a rubber you can totally forget about when you play and if you enjoy playing long-ish rallies safely with topspin and control until you get a chance to whack the ball.

This rubber is a little bit odd. It's supposed to be a Euro-style rubber from a Chinese company, and that it is in some respects, but I've been playing on it for a while now and it feels oddly hollow or dead, and has always. It certainly doesn't have the liveliness of actual German-made rubbers that I've used like Tibhar Sinus Sound or Palio Macro ERA. I started to get frustrated with this rubber after a while on my BH so I decided to swap it out. But it's not ALL bad. It certainly is loud and clicky, and rather fast, despite the deadness, which might be for lack of spin. I certainly find it hard to do anything other than flat hit with this rubber. Perhaps it is ideal for a beginner, on a slower all-wood blade with a 2.0 or thinner sponge. But on my Galaxy Kevlar/Carbon K-5 blade, it just lacks something which I hope to make up for as I search for a new rubber.

A verry good rubber for BH-drive and push. Have some good spin in chopping and you can get some really nice spinny serves with it. Verry good price it is as good or even better than 30$ rubbers.

This is the first rubber I used since coming back to TT after 5+ year layoff. I wanted something that gave good speed but was easy to control. That's exactly what I got from this rubber. It's not the greatest in every aspect, just does everything really well. After a few sessions, I found that I need something with a bit more kick. If you're a beginner, this is a perfect and inexpensive way to get into higher performance equipment. No need to spend $30-$45 on Mark V or Sriver if that's what you've been considering.
