Sponge: Pre-Tuned 2.15mm Medium (Lavender)

Use of Pre-Tuned technology makes this rubber an attackers dream. Outlaw relies totally on mechanical grip, (the Japanese technology of creating spin), with high elasticity and sponge that allows for maximum power and friction transfer into the ball. Outlaw was specifically designed for attacking players who will dominate the point mid-distance to away from the table.

This rubber truly does play like a tuned product. Treated in a fume box expanded with nitrous oxide, (NOS), then exposed to a Non VOC gas that locks the expansion in place. Light weight and fast! This rubber goes in the highest speed and spin category, comparable to other companies 50-70USD rubbers.

Currently using this on my BH with a double fish carbon qi blade. Blocks well. Can attack pretty good close to the table with a good stroke. Its clearly slower and has less power than outlaw with other sponges, but it keeps the ball on the table. Only real deficeincy is that you really need a full long stroke if you are off the table.

I like this version better than the classic version. It still has the same fast feel, but slightly toned down. Spin is way better. The topsheet is very thin, even thinner than QUL.

I have been playing with this on an lkt instinct+ blade for a while. It is good for attacking, but that's it. Decent blocking, pops all of my chops into the air, and it's very inconsistent. Slams constantly go over the table. So, here's what I say, just since it was good when I first got it. Speed:8.5 Spin:7 Control:7 Overall:7.5 Basically, a decent beginner's rubber on a slower blade, but not good for much else.

This new lavender sponge Gambler Outlaw is probably the worst rubber I have ever played with. I am a 2200-2300 level player and other players at that level that have tried the rubber confirm this. It produces very little spin and it's completely erratic...sometimes the ball goes into the net...sometimes way out...for no apparent reason. This rubber is NOTHING like the old Gambler Outlaw with the cream sponge. STAY AWAY!

Fast rubber with good grip. Nice mechanical spin too, but under control. Together makes for great serves, short, long, tricky if you want, but not as tricky as the Palio CJ8000 I used prior. Blocks are very controlled and consistent. Drives respond tremendously to good technique, shooting the ball across the table suprisingly fast and accurate, with little effort, kinda like a Western gunslinger...The name Outlaw definitely plays! So far looping/counterlooping feels good, though I feel the throw angle is slightly lower and the ball goes straighter than I expected, but it could be my technique as I adjust to the rubber.

Review it!
