A very interesting rubber with tuned. You can loop very good the incoming spin, the blocks are easy to do and the smash is OK. I pair BH and FH with this rubber in a DHS PG7, black for FH because it's a little more sticky than red. The hardness is medium 40-42º in euro scale i think. You can play very well this setup.

Playing with it tuned with PO on my fh now. The sponge reacts perfectly well to tuning and the mild effect (just what you need) lasts for a long time. Cheap ($12.5 for a pair on eBay), rather light, durable, tremendous grip, very linear with great control, spin insensitive on power loops, a perfect smash on a fast blade (nothing like your typical chinese rubber) - this rubber is indeed a bang for the buck for those who want a euro/chinese hybrid. P.S. I have a strong suggestion that a well-known CJ8000 Biotech series is just a tuned version of regular one, so basically you can do it yourself and set the spin, speed and hardness your prefer.

Surprisingly good for the price! Balanced all-around play, with perfect throw angle, good spin, and moderate speed (slow enough to control, fast enough to win points). Blocks, touch shots, & pushes are good; loops are very good; serves are OK. Excellent control, not sensitive to incoming spin, and very linear response. Can win points with either speed or spin. Am using 2.2 mm on Sanwei M8 blade, both sides, which I find to be a comfortable and effective combination. Red weighs 61g uncut, black is 63g uncut; about 15g removed in cutting. I prefer it to 729 Cream (which has less control and less effectiveness against opponent), Butterfly Wakaba (which gives less spin), and probably to LKT Pro XT (which has a lower throw angle).

good for my backhand, the spin satisfies me but not the speed. It could be better if you use off+ blade. Fh-yasaka mark V Bh-palio cj8000 Bty primorac

this rubber has great quality and is cheap. the sponge is a dirty cream color and feels soft but firm enough to produce power. i would personally like a bit harder sponge for my fh. but i can still cope w/this rubber felt like it had more gears on my extra than the tb alc. good thing it only cost me 10$ now i can buy the harder version and try that out or until i find one that suits me. in all, great rubber if you play w/chinese rubbers on fh but it also has charactrestics of a bh rubber which is a mid hard feel like bryce speed. bs has more power if i were to compare the 2 but this has more spin. it's fun to play with but i wouldn't recomend for tournament because lack of high gears.
