I bought this rubber on a whim at my table tennis club. I honestly was not expecting it to be the primary rubber that I use on my forehand. I am using a WRB oversized blade with the Tuple on one side and Donic A'Conda on the other. I can do all sorts of things with the Tuple rubber, including chop, block, smash, loop, loop-drive, push, etc. I find that the rubber is weirdly inconsistent, and depending on the weather, will give or take qualitatively. I have never purchased a rubber for ten bucks before. And what a HUGE bang for ten bucks. I am quite disenchanted with so much in table tennis. I believe that most of the table tennis rubbers out there actually handicap the development of skill because they degrade qualitatively, so quickly, and many rubbers do everything for the player. It is my belief that the longer you have a rubber, the harder you have to work to generate spin from it. In essence, FORM improves as the rubber becomes increasingly LESS user-friendly. But in these modernist days where Tenergy and company do every damn thing for you, players do less and less, and the rubbers do more and more. Anyway, all of that hot air to say Tuple 001 is a GREAT rubber for ten bucks. I bought another sheet of it from the club, and I am going to buy two more.

I am using the exact model seen in the picture for like 3 months.
I really don't think it has "most control" indeed i think it is bad when it comes to control.
It is affected a lot by the incoming spin, i think it is better to put this one on the most affected by the incoming spin category if it is worth for statistics purposes.
Note to raters: Please add the model you are using if you can write a review.
