BTY Innerforce ALC blade, FH - KLT Red Diamond Mechanical and BH - 729 Aurora. Bought by reviews only. I have on other blade - Tibhar Stratus Power Wood, rubbers - LKT Rapid Speed(FH-2,2mm and BH 2.1mm- and I am extremely happy with that rubber model), so I knew generally what I was buying.... I thought so.. I do not like the through most of all I tried to adjust for a few weeks and still I feel this is not the rubber I want as my FH rubber, it is good quality(not gentle) not too consistent, yes -spinny, and yeah -not tacky. Then I decided to use my BH 729 Aurora rubber as FH rubber - and I know my level of play,... It is more soft a bit more gentle, metal sound and you feel the paddle much more, it is less stiff rubber, much more consistent and has much more control and blade(base) feel. I played with tenergy - and I wouldn't compare it. So I am planning after today's training to take this rubber off my BTY blade and stick to one of my other paddles I will give it a try on other "wood" (One of the thoughts. may be this rubber is not a good one for carbon blades??? ) You can give it a try but I think you can spend you 20 $ more productive and even if you pay less. Update: I decided to leave this rubber as a BH and took off 729 Aurora and replaced it with Three Swords rubber (what a rubber for the price I use it as FH!!!) I will update on my experience with Red Diamond Mech as a BH rubber later..

This is a very nice rubber which is close to Tenergy 64 in speed, better in spin (not as great as Tenergy 05, of course), very reliable. Less catapult but very good control in short game, somewhat due to slight tackiness which doesn't interfere (at all!) with attacking or placement shots. Generally, can serve as a replacement for Tenergy 80 with one serious difference - it is noticeably faster in offensive shots. Very good grab - seriously! I would say comparable to Tenergy 80. Topsheet grab durability is however less than Tenergy series - after a couple of months you can feel that the spin it produces becomes less troublesome for your opponents. But for twenty bucks this is still awesome and worthy alternative to T-64 and T-80.
