Galaxy / Big Dipper
New model 2014

With Built-in tensor effect from Yinhe's MAX TENSE technology, Big Dipper takes the Chinese tacky rubber to new heights by fully exploiting GOD CROSSBOW sponge's potential. This sponge is formulated with the new non-celluloid ball in mind. Big Dipper allows for aggressive forehand play while maintaining a high degree of stability, thereby enabling seamless transition between offense and defense.

This is a great rubber. Absolutely incredible performance for the money. You get a semi-tacky, elastic topsheet on a modern porous sponge. On lighter, shorter strokes you get a lot of the advantages of Chinese tacky rubbers - excellent short game, big spin on brush strokes, controllable speed. On bigger shots, when the sponge is engaged, the results are just brilliant. Medium-high throw, good speed, and absolutely massive spin. I use the 38 degree sponge, which maximises this hybrid feel. The results are very much like a modern tensor when playing aggressive attacking strokes. Harder sponges dial this behaviour down a fair bit. The 40 degree sponge gives more of a classic Chinese hard-sponge feel, more linear, lower throw. The only downside I find with the 38 degree is the non-linear behaviour. When the sponge kicks in, Big Dipper gets lively. If you play aggressively though, this gives a lot of advantages.

Very hard to smash. Very hard to make a loop far from the table. You must spin the ball instead of throw the ball to the table. It will suit an intermediate spinner. A tacky top sheet like mostly Chinese rubber. It makes your chop serve with backspin very heavy and spinny. Low trajectory. it needs more power to do a topspin to cross the ball.

Big Dipper is almost perfect for my FH needs and it's cheap. I got mine (38 degrees hardness) for around $12. This rubber is slightly less tacky than H3, but it's faster with more control than unboosted H3. The topsheet is fairly soft for a Chinese tacky rubber. Surprisingly, the uncut weight is 67g, which is on the lighter side. In fact, this rubber weighs less than some medium hard tensor rubbers. This rubber, combined with most of my blades, produces medium high throw angle, which I like. The balance of spin and speed is great. The tacky topsheet allows touch shots to stay very short and spinny. Loops and drives are fast with a lot of topspin. This rubber checks all the boxes for me in terms of spin, speed, control, weight, and price.

39deg black: 72g uncut and 56g cut. Factory tune+glue option. Great FH rubber, not so tacky. Excellent in smash, loop and block. Serves are not so spinny but still ok. I can agree it's a hybrid, something like mix of euro and chinese rubbers. I like it from the first hit - suits my play style well :-)

I'm using this 2.2mm H38 Red version on forehand on a 729 V6 blade. I usually have a DHS Hurricane 3 NEO 2.2mm H38 on my forehand, but lately I'm starting to loop too long with this. Perhaps more often when playing on hard wooden floors etc. So I tried this instead. It's almost as spinny as the H3N, so brush looping feels almost the same. The difference was that they didn't go long so often any more. The feeling when making slower strikes etc. is better. More balls on the table here as well. It might even be a bit lighter than the H3N, so It's a big + for me using this rubber instead of the H3N. Flat hits and smashes are better with Big Dipper as well. Update 191104: The DHS NEO Skyline TG2 (2.15mm, H38) is about the same as this BD in many ways. Skyline is a bit faster, but Big Dipper has way more control in all strokes. Great if you are a brush looper away from the table (and close).
