Comes ok packed like most Joola rubbers or should I say ESN rubbers. It is non-tacky rubber with mediumish feel to it. Pips look about average size and the sponge is yellowish or light green. It is a quality production rubber.
Very good in my opinion. Since hardness is about medium it is very easy to loop from two meters away. It grips the ball well and curves it down to the table on low to high speeds when looping. For me it is better for higher speed loops on BH then slow looping but this is very personal so some of you may find it different.
Great in this department. Drives are fast with limited swing. For super high level of TT this may be BH only rubber, but for most of us mortals this one will have more than enough speed for hard FH hits. Short game is ok as with any modern rubber, but defo not the most outstanding property. You have to be careful with the bounce.
About medium throw on drives. Rubber sounds ok. Very easy to block with due to the bounce and medium feel. It last ok amount of time like all ESN rubbers, nothing special.
I would recommend this as a BH rubber for looping. If you have at least one year of training or so, this may be good alternative for you. Players lacking speed on their shots will find this rubber suitable and beneficial.
Enjoy TT and have fun :)

I have change to this rubber now. I used Tenergy 05 2.1 but it was a heavy weight rubber. Energy 2.0 is really more lightness than Tenergy 05. Now I have much better control, similar speed but... spin it's not so good. I could do more effects with Tenergy.

I have used the 2 and Max on my fh on an all blade. The 2mm has more control for close to the table counter hitting, blocking, and push under-spin, good for smashing high ball. A fast, soft, light, non tacky rubber. I find the Energy X-tra a little slow on my All Round blade.

Very good rubber for offense.
Now I saw some comments saying that this rubber has got bad control and is only for looping; this however is not true. it's perfectly good for just chopping and waiting for the opponents fault. It's amazing for every playstyle. I use 2.0 and I can do everything with it

I play this on my backhand. My original plan is to play it on my forehand to replace the ever costly tenergy. Good rubber and I love the sound but not comparable to tenergy in terms of speed and spin.
