Tackiness goes away after 2 hours of intensive playing. One should not rely on it when buy this rubber.

I have this rubber in Black with 1.8mm sponge. I have used this rubber on a Hao Shuai 1 sided carbon blade with Long Pips on the backhand.
Right out it feels very tacky (typical Chinese stuff). I was using it predominantly for flat hitting and some pushing and chopping close to table. I wasn't planning on using it for looping. Worked well for pushing and chopping generated enough backspin. Was ordinary for hitting, as the tackiness was making it hard. It really helped me on heavy side spin serves. I did not like the combination. Have been using the Gambler Outlaw 2.2mm instead and the difference in night and day.
Now I use it as a backhand on a slower butterfly blade as my only 2 sides inverted option. Does pretty well at slower flat hitting,loop driving and chopping considering the fact that I play LP backhand 95% of the time. Not a great fan, but is really good for short spinney serves.

I really like Aces, although it coud be tackier for serves. It attacks very well & has some gears for when you need it. Very good control for an attacking style of play. I use it for fh & bh. I use Aces as my all around goto rubber. Plays well close & mid distance. Great for the advancing beginner/intermediate player. As with all the Gambler rubbers the quality is excellent.

I tried this rubber for a couple sessions, because of the stated extreme tackiness, but it didn't behave like it did. The throw angle was more like a non grippy rubber.

I think this is an excellent attacking rubber when glued up. Good speed, spin and control. Ball does what you want it to do. I find it acts more like a Japanese than a Chinese rubber, despite its surface tack.
