The new, softer version of X-plode! The sensitive-touch effect conveys ball feeling of a special kind. While the first ball contact is extremely sensitive and therefore controlled, the rubber shows its full power at the ball take-off: the ball catapults like an ex-plo-sion off the rubber. The latest JOOLA Green Power technology in the x-plode sensitive provides an unique, incorporated speed glueing effect!

Hardness: 40 degrees

bought this rubber based on the good reviews. I've been playing with Acuda S3 the past couple of years and 1 reviewer said he switched from S3 to this rubber and found it to play better for him away from the table. All I can say is that I was very disappointed in the lack of spin this rubber has. I tried it in 2.0 on a Joola Wing Fast blade, and although the blade was fairly fast I felt like my loops had very little spin. This rubber is fast and easy to play with...I'll give you that, but it produces very little spin and I will search for something with better spin or go back to S3. I think some of the other Joola rubbers such as Samba+, Express 1 & 2, and Phenix are better rubbers than this one.

La más liviana goma lisa con buen golpe que he usado. Hay más livianas como las con sistema ACS de Stiga pero de golpe deplorable. Esta es una goma Off de gran rendimiento y durabilidad. Para mí debe ser la mejor goma Off, all around que debe estar dentro de las mejores en la balanza peso y calidad de golpes.

I played this on the backhand of a lightweight and bouncy blade, the Donic Persson Dotec OFF. On this blade it behaved like nothing else I had ever seen. The throw angle was enormous, resulting in my backhand opening loop becoming quite a safe shot. Additionally the relatively slow opening loop was loaded with an extreme amount of spin, which led to most of my opponents misreading the slow shot and blocking it way off the table. Granted, perhaps it's not an easy rubber to play in all situations due to its bouncyness, but for spinning the ball it is stellar.

Great rubber for backhand, too fast and bouncy for forehand. Used it on BH Stiga rosewood V, can allow you to play extremely powerful backhand loop and close table attacks, performed better than tenergy 64 for me on the BH side. Hard to control for forehand due to it being too bouncy, hard to push short balls with out of making mistakes getting the ball deep out of the table. Overall great backhand rubber for advanced players

Awesome rubber. I have a Joola Fever ply (offensive). This rubber plays very well on this ply. Good control, decent speed and spin. Not be the spinniest but the overall performace is very good. And lightweight too.

Review it!
