Using this after trying Tenergy 05 and Hurricane Neo 3. This is such a great rubber it can loop well and also is good for flat smashing which was very surprising to me. I have it paired with the Zhang Jike ALC and it's probably my favorite combo now.

Apollo 5, Red, H36 glued on a 729 V-6 blade (Forehand). I'm used to the softer versions of DHS Skyline TG2 NEO, Yinhe Big Dipper, DHS NEO Hurricane 3 etc. On flat hits I feel that there's more control than the previous mentioned rubbers. Good for blocking. When it comes to looping, after another training session, it's quite easy to loop with good control. With good foot work and technique this is a looping monster. The throw angle is kind of low. I'm used to rubbers with a bit higher throw, but when I play this, I can't feel that it would be a problem with a lower throw. The ball only goes a bit faster towards my opponent, and that can't be wrong :) There is a nice, almost cracking sound when you hit the ball. Especially on flat hits. I feel that the short game is relative easy as well. The sponge is hard. Harder than the earlier mentioned rubbers. When I used the rubber my first session, it felt much more difficult to use in many ways, but now it feels like the rubber changed after some hours of play. The spin is superior, like the best Chinese rubbers. The speed is not as fast as NEO Hurricane 3/2 or Skyline TG2 NEO. More like Big Dipper then... Weight cut: 51g.

First time using this rubber feel very comfort, good for drive and flat smash, spin feel like t05 but less speed. I like this rubber a lot.

Very good hybrid class rubber, a very allround.

This rubber produces exceptional ball play and can control the ball very well. I am currently using Garaydia alc, T05 & Apollo 5 as a powerful weapon
