Apollo II was built to be the backhand complement to Galaxy's acclaimed Apollo I rubber. Less tacky and a sponge that is just a bit more controlled than its Forehand brother.

Apollo rubber is chemically pre-tuned from the factory and sealed in Galaxy's new air tight vacuum packaging.

Tackiness: Slight

Blade : Butterfly Jonyer-H (medium speed OFF-, soft feel, great control) FH : Galaxy Apollo II Max Tense 2.2 H34 BH : DHS Hurricane3 Neo National 2.2 H39 or Haifu Blue Whale III 2.2 H39 I am fan of chinese rubbers, play with Apollo II on FH for 4 months and I must say that this is one of the best. Rubber is so good that my close friend who is professional player for 30 years sell this rubber to his friends. Cut to regular blade size (153 - 159 mm) it has weight 45 - 50 g. Topsheet : Medium tacky, medium to high throw angle, very spinny, very durable. Sponge : Porous, like tensors. There are 2 versions. 1st is dark orange (old - chinese letters on sponge), with big pores (topsheet is more tacky) and new version (Factory tuned) is brighter and topsheet is less tacky (more grippy). I put 2 layers of booster on sponge (Falco Long Booster) and wait for 7 days to become flat. After that I put 2 layers of Haifu VOC Free Glue. Rubber has medium speed, high spin and best control. When you remove the glue from the sponge you must use 2 - 3 layers of parafin oil to avoid damaging the sponge.

This is fast rubber. It is not the fastest but fast enough for most people. Too fast for some people. Spin is great, control is fine considering speed. It is listed as backhand rubber but for me it works nice for backhand and forehand both. And I'm quite picky about my forehand. It is more grippy than tacky. I really like it. Do not know is it durable. Galaxy rubbers are not so durable like Friendship rubbers. I recommend it for advanced attackers or intermediate level attackers (I suggest slower blade in this case).

A very solid rubber. It is marketed as a backhand rubber and it suits that role very well. Good mix of speed, spin, and control.

Review it!
