I use this rubber for my CP RPB. In 1.5mm, this rubber is very light and being slightly tacky, it is perfect for any backhand. While speed is not very high, it does generate a lot of spin with its relatively soft sponge. When you hit the ball, you can feel the ball sink into the sponge. Dwell time is good and it allows you to place your shots. If you want more speed, get 1.8mm or max. I chose 1.5mm for weight options as I have a heavy FH rubber. I don't often use RPB but when I do, the amount of spin and control easily outclasses the need for speed on this. Durability is somewhat lacking. A few good drops of your racquet or accidentally hitting the table will take a few chunks out of the rubber. Overall, this rubber has done what it should. I really like the control this rubber allows as well as the spin it creates on RPB shots.

After fighting fast tensors for years I tried this rubber in 2.0 for BH. Topsheet and sponge is high quality. Juic rubbers are known for tough durability. This rubber in 2.0 has several gears for defense and offensive hits and loops with good speed close/ mid to table. Great spin on serves and very good control for service returns. Absorbs the opponents power to set up your own attack. I have changed from OFF class blades and Tenergy to ALL+ blade with Juic 999 Turbo (fh) and 999 Elite Defense with much better feel and control for all my shots. This simply is a great backhand rubber with the ability to produce massive spin. If you want to have the ability to control your opponent this rubber is excellent for blocking, chopping, looping (2.0) or controlled counter hitting. Great for all levels of play, just choose the right thickness for your game. A rare 10 out of 10.

I tried it 1,0 black on a Dr. Neubauer barricade Def. This rubber is very slow, has extreme spin, and a low throw angle. That means it´s a MONSTER chopper! You can swing hard and send massive underspins in a low trajectory. Of course it suffers when it comes to offense and loops are poor, but for backhand kills over the table it still works.

I have the 1.0 thickness version. Very, very slow and above avg spin. This is my BH rubber for RBP. I only like it so much due to the weight being lighter than anything I have ever tried. Still looking for something faster with the same light weight. Don't get me wrong. I still hit very fast RBP backhands with this rubber but it's not for those who want speed speed speed.

Using this rubber in 1.5 mm on the forehand of my defensive bat. So much control. Even miss hits catch the end of the table due to the spin and slow speed. This rubber is also great for chopping. I would recommend this as a backhand rubber unless you are a control freak and like the pace to be slow and spinny, which I love.
