I bought a sheet in 1.8 and its quite heavy, similar to Globe 999T 1.8 and quite spinny and tacky. Its faster than the Globe 999T, but similar in speed to the Tibhar Grip-S Europe, ie not very fast. Control hitting was not as good as the Grip-S Europe. It does chop very well, but you really need to hit it hard to win a point by smashing with it.

This is a better version of Globe 999. Top sheet is more consistant and the tuned sponge feels softer than typical Chinese sponge. Bounce rate is rather low for a tuned rubber but it's a wolf in sheep's clothing, it's fast on a good composite OFF blade. Tremendous spin on loops and serves. A bit touchy for service return due to the tacky of the topsheet but overall feel and control is good. I feel this a very good transitional rubber coming from Jap/euro rubbers. Explosive hitting and counters. Short game is direct and linear with good technique. Price point is very good considering it's performance. Performs best on wood blades like YEO or Clipper or composite fast blades. A very good rubber for attack play with mixed strokes.
