- Japanese sponge is lighter than normal version

Palio CJ8000 Biotech rubbers use the classic CJ8000 topsheet, fairly soft and half-tacky for a very nice blend of speed and spin. The new topsheet will pick a ball up off the table when pressed down onto it, but just for a moment.

Palio Biotech sponges place the topsheet under tension, giving an increase in speed, spin, and overall performance over untensioned rubbers. Enjoy the performance and the pleasing "click" sound when striking the ball, all for a great price!

The CJ8000 Biotech 42-44 degree rubber has a hard sponge designed for maximum speed for fast attack close to the table. It makes a great rubber for flat hitters who like to end points FAST. It also performs well for counterlooping at far distance from the table. The soft CJ8000 topsheet makes for a fast, hard sponge rubber with good control.

The cheapest among the best rubbers. I bought 2 for £12.99 to replace my H3 Neo. Very good rubber.

it raise like the lift with booster is much more versatile and better than new tensors (all tuned also)

this 42-44 japanese sponge is not much harder than 36-38 or 39-40, as expected so slow, that does not work without tuning, however, extreme speeds with oil, without loss of control uncut mass is 74g, therefore dwell time and spin excellent too The red is slightly tacky, black is medium tacky, but it was very easy and natural to play with it

I use this on my FH side and use CJ8000 39-41 degree Japanese Sponge on my BH. I like this harder sponge version for its ability to play both defense and offense. It is equally at home smashing and chopping. I play with a BTY Michael Maze blade and feel that speed is adequate. If I played with a much slower blade this rubber might have a hard time generating enough put-away power. Overall I find it a great value at ~$12.
