Factory-Tuned rubber from China, developed in conjunction with Chen Weixing. The medium-hard rubber is specially designed for the needs of European players and has impressive speed combined with the typical grippy Chinese rubber surface. A well priced alternative.

Ok rubber by Joola and not much more. At price range of 40 to 50$ there are many, and I mean many better alternatives to this. Physical: Soft top sheet on a medium/soft sponge. Pips are slightly taller then typical. Some tack on the top sheet but not a lot (wont pick up a ball, but it is stickey). Spin: Comparable to Sriver or Mark close to the table. Off the table not much since rubber is sort of soft. Speed: Again, ok for close to the table play but you would lack much if you go back. A well not much to say else about this rubber because nothing stands out except the price 45$. Recommendation: Absolutly nobody!!! If you have to buy only thing makeing this rubber cost what it does is Joola name. At 50 $ price tag it is actualy hard to find something that performes worse in terms of spin, speed,... whole nine yards. If this rubber was priced at about 15$ then it would be ok. Enjoy TT and have happy life :)

It's a good option for a backhand rubber with the block purpose, I agree with the other comments about the change of consistency and tackiness. I used to defend for my forehand with brave 2.0, you can chop with greatest control, also produce good spiny serves. It's a normal rubber if you don't have a professional training.

Soft Spinny rubber. Better for a usually flatDriving player rather than a looper. Joola Brave, in my opinion, is a better backhand than forehand rubber.

I just wanna say these ratings are not correct. 1) speed rating: it says it is fater than Tenergy 05. It's not true, Tenergy is way faster. 2) tackiness: this rubber is almost untacky. Conclusion: You can't trust in all the ratings in the database, because there is usually too many people who rank and can't compare rubbers enough to get appropriate rankings.

hmmm this rubber is really great but it can only afford few plays. It's like taking steroids, after a while the rubber is gone bad. so if u r super rich who can afford changing of rubber from time to time then this rubber is a killer but for poor asses like me can't afford it. anways super nice temporary rubber

Review it!
