As a defender, I play with 0x pimpled rubber on bakhand (Curl P1R) on a defensive balde, now with 1,8mm black Submarine.
Orange sponge, about 40°. Sponge + topsheet are around 40-41°.
This rubber really shines at chopping, as said many times, but it is important to say it again! I NEVER HAD SUCH PLEASURE TO CHOP WITH INVERTED. Tackiness is just insane and durable, providing heavy backspin chops.
During defensive shots (pushes, blocks and chops) : speed is low, Control is unbelievable, chop-sponge has a dampening effect.
During offensive strokes : speed is medium to high, depending on engagement. Sponge does not feel dampening any more. So that you can counter, hit or take a first-strike topspin with ease, since I noticed many gears like some other rubbers (Yanus DF, Jupiter...)
A chinese defensive rubber, very cheap but highly recommanded for "tactician" defenders with a startegy based on chops and sudden attacks...
In a word : AWESOME

Revêtement tactique de précision chop chop et re-chop .Testé en 1.8 mm permet un jeu sécurisant tout en rotation autant le chop que le top .Collé sur un Donic appelgren allplay ça devient un setup all- pour joueur pas pressé en manque de contrôle qui peu aussi servir de remêde pour le joueur qui a perdu la table . Très grande qualitée de fabrication pour du chinois qui selon moi peu servir d'alternative au bty tackiness chop ou drive . Il manque la vitesse mais on retrouve tout le reste .

Good all round rubber, however in terms of control I'd say stiga chop n drive is better

This rubber is excellent for chopping as advertised, but overall it plays like a good all-round. No trouble with blocking and countering, loops are surprisingly good. Touch is good enough even at 2.0mm to drop push shots close to the net with good spin. Very easy to lift heavy chop, in fact this may be the best I've tried in that regard. I find it easier to control than Mark V, but spins just as well on loops and serves thanks to a tacky topsheet. It's weakness is can't seem to generate much speed on smashes and flat hits. The sound is somewhat dull, maybe the quietest of all the sheets I've tried. It is very heavy. Overall, it's a good sheet for a controlled game.

Throw angle was high on TSP 2.5 (maybe because of the blade). Otherwise a very good rubber, but doesn't last long time
