Classic rubber with excellent control for looping from all distances. usable for backhand and forehand. Not particularly friendly for drop-shots and chopping.

typical tensor rubber. great speed and spin away from the table. sacrifices a little in the short game (or alot, depends on whom you ask).
matched with a 5/7-ply wood blade with hinoki-top veneer blade=beautiful, but hurts the wallet a bit. I know a few die-hard F1 users, and it's still a pretty good option these days.

It brakes when the rubber just slightly touch the table! There is all most no spin for serving, but there is a lots of spin when you loop the ball. It is best to combine with Donic blades; especially the hard once.

good speed and spin<slightly poor control>
but less spinner than baracuda.
In Thailand Baracuda is 1300 bahts<38usd>.This F1 is 1100 bahts<32usd>. I think Baracuda is the better choice.
