Such high strength rubbers can even be without glue! But its perfect combination of high spring sponge and high glutinous rubbers.

3S Tensor Tech. has solved the usual problems from common rubbers, more strength , better sounds, and its powerful strength can reach to near and middle area that provide you excellent strength!

Medium-Hard sponge.

I had it on my Galaxy T-11 and it wasn't good for loops, so for me I think it would be best on a flexible blade. It's really spinny so serves are great but it's also pretty sensitive to incoming spin. It's also really fast.

Medium hard sponge tends to soft up a bit. It took couple months to break in at that moment. Six months already, it's still going strong! Update 1: I finally decided to changed it after 7 months. Don't give me wrong; it was still perfectly usable. I just wanted to try something new. So I put it on my Mom's paddle (bh). I glued it with traditional glue, so the sponge softened up a bit even more. This is a Chinese rubber I wouldn't mind to go back to on the backhand side, especially the red version. It is lighter than the black ones. But right now, I want to try some more rubbers!

Love this rubber. Never expected this kind of performance rom a cheap rubber. On an aralyte carbon blade (c-pen) with friendship 802-40 on the forehand and this rubber on the back hand, my RPB improved a lot. It is so good I bought ten pieces of this rubber. The black is little harder than the red but the tackiness are the same.

Review for black rubber @ max Looks: Comes in plastic with paper cover around. Not a vacuum pack. It has a green sponge. Sponge looks like old school Chinese sponges for speed glue (sort of mixture of rubber and paper). It has tacky top sheet with good amount of smell to it. As if it is factory pre tuned. Speed: Deffo not a slow rubber. It has enough speed so you can play up to 3 m away from the table with a ok pace. In short game speed is more then enough. Spin: This rubber has more speed then a spin in my opinion. For openings, serves and side spin close to the table shots spin is sufficient. RBlade said that rubber is not for looping far away and i tend to agree. Sebas made a good review about characteristics of this rubber. I suggest you read the post of his link. Some things i would like to mention before logging out. Top sheet is tacky but not a lot of grip on it. When you go in faster exchange ball can slip easily this is a main downside of this rubber for me. Another funny thing is the sponge reaction to the glue. I was out normal glue so i had to use speed glue on this. Glue i used was Haifu Blue Whale 2, which is a strong speed glue. I just tried to glue the rubber in normal way without boosting so i put one thin layer on sponge and one on the blade. Did not even wait for the glue to dry out, and the rubber curled so much that it took me two days to actually glue it on the blade. This is the first time in my life to see such a reaction so early to a speed glue. As if human would drink one small cup of coffee and stayed up for five days, that how bizarre this was. Overall rubber is OK and nothing more for the price. There are better alternatives to this at this price range. Galaxy rubbers are much better in my opinion and just as affordable. Personally i can see myself using this for FH training but not a game rubber. If Reactor would menage to fix slipping problem with this rubber then story would be different. I do recommend this rubber for beginners, and intermediate players as a match or training rubber. You dont have to be a physical beast to use it but it is not a tensor easy. Medium throw + ok speed + tacky makes it for a nice FH rubber. Hope this helps :) Have fun and enjoy TT.

Very good rubber, I used it for a while but it was a good experience. Very good for spins and looping

Review it!
