The best forehand rubber I have tried out of the following : rasant powergrip , rasant, tibhar aurus, yasaka rising dragon, xiom omega 4 pro, xiom omega 5 tour, tibhar 1qxd, h3neo, skyline tg2 neo fastarc G1 incorporates the best qualities of the above rubbers : 1. tackiness like 1qxd (this helps a lot over the table short game, server receives, pushes, lifting underspin balls in a controlled manner without overshooting edge of table, sidespin-hook topspins) 2. spin/grip like rasant power grip (provides great spin when brushing looping as well as when you engage the sponge in close/mid/far distance game) 3. med-hard sponge like aurus (not too hard, but not also medium like rasant... this allows you to start engaging the sponge relatively closer to the table, without fear of ball overshooting due to high throw of rubber, or ball rushing to the net due to med-low throw...... the med-hard sponge also ensure adequate power from all usual playing distances) 4. med-high throw angle like rasant (helps in clearing the net easliy from close/mid .... ) 5. blocking is also good like xiom rubbers .. no issue in this aspect from the look, feel, and daily playing experience, it seems pretty durable as well !! Totally satisfied !! Highly recommended !! I m using it as FH on DHS long 5 blade, with tibhar 5Q+(power update) on BH. Great combination.

The G-1 feels similar to the touch as Xiom’s Omega V Asia but is two grams lighter at 49 grams when cut to my 157 x 150 mm test blade. After hitting the first couple of FH drives, it was pretty evident that the G-1 feels significantly firmer in game play than the P-1. The feeling on FH drives is very crisp and direct and there even is a hint of a clicking sound. FH loops feel great and are easy to execute. The throw angle on loops is medium high to high, providing plenty of clearance over the net. Unlike the P-1, I felt that the ball really bites into the sponge and topsheet, allowing me to impart high amounts of spin on my opening loops. Read the full review here:

very similar to hurricane with 70% of Tenergy speed. spin is practically identical to hurricane except on serves bc of the lack of tackiness. Its weight and feel is very similar. The only con is that when new, it is quite hard and boosting does not really resolve this. Fortunately, it breaks in quickly though not as quickly as alhelg. When it does, hardness becomes medium from hard. Durability is one of the best and you can play it like either T05 or H3.

Les qualités maximum d'une plaque coup droit pour de très gros top spins, mousse dure mais dynamique sans l'inconvénient double effet tensor des tenergy, plaque linéaire dans la vitesse, pas la plus rapide, mais très grippy, peut être la meilleure depuis la balle plastique . Etonnant que pour une plaque homologuée en 2010 sur LARC de l ITTF, elle ne soit connue que récemment en Europe. Un contrôle exceptionnel dans tous les compartiments du jeu et également à mi distance. À les qualités du tibhar mx s , sans les défaut s de ce dernier, c'est à dire un peu plus dynamique, rejet, légèrement plus haut pour le top et le bloc, et moins exigeant pour toper. Mx s = professionnels à la table, et puissants dans les jambes, fastarc g1 = joueurs avancés pour joueurs à mi distance
