This is an interesting rubber that I've tried on 3 separate blades. Using 2.2mm in both red and black, I'm unable to discern any difference so conclude they are consistent/identical. The performance does change somewhat with the choice of blade - becoming softer and slower on a more defensive blade, proving good feel for touch shots, pushes etc. while on a stiffer, harder blade the rubber provides much more speed with good feel but I found I lost some control. On an ALL/OFF- blade the performance is very even and consistent and is this rubber's 'sweet spot' I think
The rubber is a little heavy for my liking but a 2.0mm or 1.8mm version would obviously be lighter. Durability is still a question though as I've not had it one blade long enough to tell. However, removing and re-gluing it (3 times now) has seen both the rubber and top sheet become more brittle and prone to chipping when re-trimming.
For the price, this is an excellent beginner to intermediate rubber.

I like this rubber, i use itu for BH, very controlable and very easy to flick the ball... Overall i really like it

Great rubber. I played it in red at b/h, 2.0mm.
Fast with a medium sponge. Blocking, looping, counter can be done well with a lot of control. The biggest surprise for me was its great control when pushing. Topsheet is very slighly tacky but after some time it turns to highly grippy. The rubber is more for european style of play. The Inspirit makes a loud noise.
You can get no more value for that price. Surely not comparable to modern euro/jap. rubbers regarding to speed. But the spin/speed/control-ratio is outstanding. If you look for a fast rubber with suberb control in short game this is yours.

Awesome rubber for the price. Generates large quantities of spin on loops, fast but controllable. I highly recommend this rubber to anybody that wants a good European style rubber without paying the massive price tag.

Very good for its price, and very predictable. I have it (35 degree soft) on Dowei Genote F, and its the best Chineese rubber for the Europian stile of play. Inspirit with speed glue - is much faster (9+) with substantial increase in spin (9-9.5) ability. You need to have a faster blade for Inspirit to shine.
