Nice tackiness, good spin and control. But slow speed. Its a nice rubber. But it didnt work too well on my Stiga Tube offensive. The rubber was much too slow. Very good spin on serves. Its a defensive rubber. Would work best with chopping and looping I think. Good for tactical play with spin variation. Seems to have good endurance.

Plays very similar to a tacky 729/chinese rubber. The product description says it's made for the post speed glue era, which is misleading! It does not have any click at all. I believe outlaw and six shooter are the only tuned rubbers from gambler. Also the sponge is Not Soft, it's about a medium, about 38-40. Anyway back to the rubber, it's a mildly tacky rubber, that requires chinese strokes. Counter looping/driving is okay. Blocking and flat hit are not good. Pushing so so. Really bad for euro strokes/short strokes, or passive play. The only way to win with this rubber is to swing fast and hard at everything.. Some good aspects, it's really cheap! It's slow, so you have to use technique to generate power which could be good for a serious new player.

Review it!
