Excellent rubber, solid feel with lots of gears . This rubber has one of highest control I have seen to date taking into account the speed it has it does what you tell it, even your technique is not good. The review is for dynamic friction the upgrade version of tour.

I developed a BIG smile after the first couple of FH topspin rallies. The Omega V Tour has the same direct feeling as the V Asia, but the slightly greater catapult allowed me to play faster shots with the same effort. Omega V Tour’s throw angle is slightly higher than Omega V Asia’s, resulting in a very pronounced arc over the net and excellent looping consistency. I applaud Xiom for getting the combination of throw and catapult just right with the V Tour. I have played with other high throw rubbers but often found their catapult effect to be too strong and/or inconsistent, resulting in many balls going long. Not so with the V Tour.

Quite good for spin. Speed medium. But, considering durability,this rubber is common trash! After 30h of training looks like OIV pro after 2 years... Rubber is for someone who has real money to change it every month if plays 8-10hours a week.

Grippy topsheet rubber with very good catapult effect. This is a tensor rubber but you wont see the same speed as one. Similar to Rakza 7 soft but with a lot more speed and spin while giving excellent control.
I was struggling with Chinese rubbers to produce consistent strokes as those rubbers seemed not to be reliable. Still using a Chinese DHS blade but the rubber behaves very very well despite that !
With the heavier shots the Chinese blade + chinese rubber vibrates horribly when hitting off-centre. Any shot off-centre produces deep jarring vibrations. Which I suspect is one of the reasons why before I couldn't consistently control the ball when looping and hitting and ended up constantly adjusting my stroke and angle.
But now with the Xiom Omega V tour rubber, no adjustment at all and no vibration !!! Just play my stroke and complete it. Short , mid, long-distance are now extremely controlled and strokes produce excellent return balls !!! The ball gets to the other side low and fast while clearing the net effortlessly !
If I do want to block, it works as long as I stroke the ball slightly. So this rubber definitely not for blockers.
Pushing works, flipping works :-)
Switched FH to Rakza7 becos I need higher throw angle. Moved this rubber to my BH now.
Best BH rubber ever for me ! I block effortlessly returning LOW balls. BH RBP top-spin is very very spinny clearing the net low with lots and lots of spin+speed.
Counter top-spin and heavy top-spin block tends to be little uncontrolled, mainly due to the tensor springiness makes blocking a little difficult to judge on the spinnier balls. Chops, pushes are really really good. Serves are excellent.
Those with weak BH should not use this rubber. It has low throw angle, difficulty with passively blocking.
This is an offensive / attack rubber that has more control +spin and less speed.
Works with Plastic ball. :-)

This is one of the newest rubbers from Xiom and is good for the new plastic balls. Very good in speed & spin, good in control compared to Sigma II & Ome. IV Europe series. I liked it better than Bty. Tenergy 05 & 64 FX for sure. However, It is getting costly with the new stocks?? It is worth a try, you'll like it!
