Hardness Black 38 / Red 38. Weight seems average to medium-heavy.
Rubber is very slightly tacky when new. The ball will only stick to it slightly for the first few hours of play.
Medium fast and spin is pretty good but less than tacky rubbers. Also a decent level of control but nothing outstanding.
Throw angle I found to be about medium.
Blocking was OK, as sponge is not too hard so come natural catapult without playing much if any stroke on the block.
Pushing and chop serves were OK for spin and control was OK but nothing special.
Attacking felt OK with this rubber with a respectable amount of pace and spin. Control just always seemed very average. Decent for the price though.
Speed: 8.1; Spin: 8.3; Control: 8.1
Tackiness: Slightly tacky; Throw Angle: Medium
Weight: Medium-heavy; Sponge Harness: Medium; Gear: Above average gears
Durability: Lasts longer than average; Consistency: Occasional variations

This is my second input on this rubber. One word "Useless"
The rubber was black 2.2mm on the backhand of a Yinhe T-11 blade.
The rubber when dusty during play after arond five minutes becomes very inconsistand. The only consistand shot was to chop, the sponge is great the topsheet "Useless". Nearly every shot I tried to play with either loop or topspin had a different effect. You would need to cleen this rubber after every game, so it would in effect wind your opponent up, changing ends and cleaning your rubbber topsheet. Where as any 729 rubber plays the same throuout a 5 leg match without the need to clean it until afterwards. Will not be buying anymore of the Yinhe rubbers. Blades are great rubbers are Useless.

I tried this rubber in 1.8mm both in F/H and B/H using galaxy T2 blade. Hard to control in B/H but F/H is not too bad. Not very consistent, you would do the same shot but comes out with different result. Not very spinny and lost its tackiness after few hours. Not sure about the speed in 2.0mm or 2.2mm but with 1.8mm is slow. A very good rubber for beginers but not for intermediate players. Galaxy produces good blades, but not sure about their rubbers.
