I play with chinese tacky rubbers, both on BH (DHS Hurricane3 Neo National 2.2) and FH (Galaxy Apollo II Max Tense 2.2) on Stiga Rosewood NCT V and/or Butterfly Jonyer-H.
Topsheet : It's very tacky, like Globe 999. On new rubber there are some little scratches in the middle, so topsheet in not first class. It's very thin, pips are short.
Sponge : Very light, cut on regular blade size (155 - 159 mm) it's under 40 g. Color of sponge is white. It's big problem, because when you put VOC Free glue you don't see is glue still wet and whether the glue applied uniformly. Hardness of sponge is 36-38 (Japan), so it's 32 (China). Very, very soft. Sponge is porous, not elastic like Japanese sponges on TSP or Stiga rubbers, mechanically sensitive.
Playing : I put 2 layers of Falco Tempo Long Booster on sponge. Reaction was medium. After 2 days I put 2 layers of Haifu VOC Free glue on sponge and stick it on my faster blade Stiga Rosewood NCT V. Spin was good, but speed was very slow. Sponge was dead. Maybe it's for BH, but not for FH on very fast carbon blade. After half an hour I threw the rubber.
Galaxy Apollo II Max Tense is much better.
