Good rubber with high speed... but spin I felt is bit low compared to normal gki kunfu...hence looping heavy chops requires energy

This is my all time favourite rubber!
I'm a rather defensive player who even plays with long pimples. The phenix is good for defending, but I am able to make many points with a regular smash or topspin too!
Since i've been using this rubber, my play has been drastically improved.
+ It's fast, and good for spinning short serves and close behind the net
+ Serves are good overall
+ When you're used to it, it has pretty good control for it's speed
- you really have to go beneath the ball when you want to chop or push it; but you'll get lot's of spin
- not good for starting players (you should've played for 2-3 years min.)

Great all around rubber. Speed, spin, control, feel. Good for close and mid-court play. Will stay on my forehand.

Very fast but controllable predictable rubber. A little softer sponge for a more dwell and a little more grippiness - that would be my ideal rubber. Best rubber ever for flat hits. But the spin is quite enough. Just a little higher throw, a little higher spin/speed ratio...Joola! Please!

I can agree with everything written before. Very long lasting and offensive rubber. A little bit tricky in returns because of its speed when hitting too direct.
