Speed like T80
Spin like T05
Throw Angle beetwen T05 & T80
For me its easier to use than T05 (more insensitive to incoming spin than T05, im curving top spin more better)
Im using for FH, move from T05 to this rubber at BTY ALC blade

It's great while it lasts. I switched from Andro Rasant Grip because of availability, and I wanted to be like Koki. V15-Extra has 3 gears. If you hit flat you can bottom out the sponge easily. It feels a bit slow but control is good due to the low tackiness. At medium angles the rubber plays its worst - counter hitting has high throw angle with average spin. Control chopping is ok, but nothing amazing. Looping is just insane! At fine angles it feels like I'm aiming at the back wall, but the ball dives very quickly due to the incredible spin. If you can hit it fine enough, backspin is also pretty mad. The soft sponge is forgiving throughout the loop, giving me a lot of confidence.
There are two problems I had with this rubber. Because it worked best at shallow angles I found that I edged the ball a lot more. Secondly, this rubber did not last very long at all. I went through 4 sheets of V15 in under 6 months - about 40 hours of play per sheet. At 40 hours there was obvious signs of wear on my contact points which caused the ball to slide out at shallow angles. The cost of the rubber and the short lifespan makes V15-Extra a pretty bad deal - a shame because I really wanted to love it.
Setup was V15-Extra 2.2 red (fh), Donic Bluefire M3 2.2 black (bh), TSP Swat Power, shakehand grip.

Very good backhand rubber. Control is high and forgiving. Inside out shots or snake shots are amazing,

Very happy with this rubber. I was trying to find a decent replacement for Tenergy 05 and it plays a little harder and faster. Spin is great, you get what you put in. "On average" my game has more spin across all strokes compared to the Tenergy 05. More linear than Tenergy, not too bouncy in the short game but very fast on power loops. Overall this rubber plays somewhat similar to the new Tenergy 05 Hard.
