Adopts MP system rubber to compound in balance and unsmooth sucking disc technology on surface of rubber. Matched with light macromolecule honeycomb structrue sponge, under the status of good speed and power, it has clearer hand sense; when hit, it produces melodious sound and strong attack. When rubbde, it has
unique low frequency sound wave and produces strong rotation. It is applicable to loop fast attach playing of forehand and backhand.

I use it for backhand of my Donic Waldner Ultra Carbon. I play "frisbee" style top spin. Great control (brush or drive), lots of spin, surprisingly fast, consistent and forgiving. Much lighter than T88-I and solid feel on ball contact. I have Tenergy 05FX on the other side of the DWUC and the Sanwei is a little slower, about equal in spin at low/medium speed (loops and serves), higher throw, and more forgiving than 05FX.

It´s a very tacky rubber, like a japanese, an inexpensive and stressed rubber for beginner players and modern intermediaries, very good to the price!

Great all-round rubber. Bought because it is cheap and this allows me to create set ups to compare different blades. Tackier but not as spinny as the Joola mambo I used last season but a fraction of the cost. Well worth trying.

I use it on the backhand of my W6 CPEN blade (using it for RPB topspin mainly, and blocks from time to time). I'm quite surprised by the speed, far from an "allround" rubber as far as I'm concerned : I'm used to playing with Rapid Speed on my backand and this is at least as fast, maybe even a tad faster. The tackiness is present but not overwhelming, the grip is very good (however careful, grip seems to vanish in high-humidity conditions). You can also impart quite a good amount of speed with this rubber, it's not a rocket but totally enough. The sponge is firm, but not brick-hard, perfect for me on a hard enough blade. Throw angle is medium-high for me, therefore there's no problem for topspinning away from the table (speed and throw angle are high enough). Overall, not a top-notch rubber but it does a really decent job : I didn't really appreciate the T88-I but this one I like a lot more. It seems there are some variations in production though, so beware.. my red rubber is quite heavy whereas the black one is a lot lighter (54g vs 61g uncut in max sponge, only played witht the red one so far).

i used with donic waldner allplay. good choice for beginner combo's. not tacky as dhs rubbers. if you're eu player and want to try chinese rubbers this is the one you are looking for.
