I was wanting to get a Maxxx-P and Maxxx-400 combo, but found this rubber and decided to try it out pairing it up with Mark V and Ma Lin Hard Carbon. You can use it on FH and Bh, but I use it on BH. This rubber, however does take a while to adjust to. Overall I love this rubber!

In my search a replacement for Tenergy 05 due to its extreme speed, I tried Joola Maxxx 500 because it is on sale on megaspin.net. And I am very lucky to find this rubber ( not so lucky with Nittaku P1, Tibhar MX-P, or Donic Z1). Maxxx 500 is very fast, spinny, controlable, and has very high throw angle that help loop heavy underspined easily.
I paired Maxxx500 black max for FH, and 2.0 red BH with BTY Viscaria, Yasaka Goiabao 5, BTY super Zhang Jike, and Stiga Rosewood XO, and I like the Rosewood XO+ Joola Maxxx 500 most.
Compared to BTY T05, Maxxx 500 is less bouncy, same spin, more control, and higher throw angle ( contradicted to other reviewers who say T05 has higher throw angle)

This rubber is really good for forehand!
But I have to say that the rates about its weight and hardness is definitely inaccurate!!! First, this rubber's weight is very similar to XIOM Omega V Tour and Pro, the max of it might be 46-48g cut on a shakehand blade! But here the weight rating is 6.2, far more than Omega V Tour's 5.0 and Pro's 5.3! Second, the hardness is 50 degree printed on the package, a little harder than Rhyzm's 48 degree, and maxxx 500 feels not as hard as a hardness rating of 8.1, quite similar to XIOM Sigma II pro or Omega IV Pro! the rating is ridiculous.

Very good lining. Low angle view of the blocks. Strong rotation. I changed from T05 to Joola maxx and I am 100% satisfied.

The joola maxxx 500 is a very fast rubber with less spin than baracuda. I think the topsheet of baracuda is much more grippy. The joola maxxx is just for advanced players, who have a godd arm-accelaretion.
