Very good do it all rubber. I like it on FH and on BH, plays really well on Andro Temper Off-, T-8, and Stratus Power Wood. SE2 is very good on slow brush loops and hard topspins away fro the table, good on blocking and different type of serves. It has many gears and when you engage the sponge on harder strokes generates monstrous spin with amazing kick from the table, similar to T05 but much more forgiving, although less durable.

I used a few pieces, it is definitely a very good rubber in performance comparing to Ome. V & Vega series. The only weak point is its durability, not lasting as long as the other 2 series. It is worth a try if it is on special!

I normally use Vega Pro on FH and decided to give this a try. Sponge is softer than Vega Pro, felt similar to 05-fx, perhaps a touch softer. It makes me feel really confident and like I have a "pause button" when I contact the ball. Control is amazing, and looping is fantastic. I found I can also counter-loop close to the table very easily. Hitting and smashing aren't as great. Pushes and serves are very good. Highly recommended.

This is not a rubber for beginners, and that is likely why it is not considered as fast as it is. Like the tenergy series, the speed relies on how much spin you generate and whether or not you use proper form. Like with Tenergy 80, the short game is exceptional because the rubber almost feels dead if you aren't playing with full strokes. It is exceptional for chopping short and at a distance. It is a monster for looping (be careful and make sure to use European strokes when close to the table or the ball will rocket well beyond the playing surface!), and actually blocks quite well from mid-distance. This is the best rubber I have played with by far, but it does take precision to tame. Don't buy this if you're learning or planning on just "testing it"... it is rated "tour" by Xiom for a reason. The only drawback for me was the lack of spin generated on serves, and the decrease in sidespin (even with full strokes) that I was used to from T05, T25, Omega Pro and T80

Spin: Rubber delivers big time in this department. Just as spinney as the other top rubbers on the market. Trajectory is very long with the sudden dip at the end of opponent side of the table. Opening loops are just as good as counter looping. Serves on the other hand are still better with tacky rubbers but for a tensor rubber, spin on serves is just great. The most appealing aspect of this rubber to me is ability to cancel all of the incoming loop spin and add massive own spin. When counter looping ball will constantly go to the edge of the opponent side then just make a sudden dip, even if you counter loop is really push block type of shot. Speed: Rubber in short game is not as bouncy as Vega Euro. As a matter of fact it is not too bouncy at all, so you one can keep game slow and short without much effort. When you go off the table rubber picks up great deal of speed. Personally I would say maybe 5 to 10% faster than T64. When playing it, turns out for me at least, I can apply more spin with it then with T64 that XSE2 goes about 15% faster than T64, but I dont think that sponge is faster just you get more dip so you can hit faster. I use this rubber on BH and I cannot bottom it out, much better then Vega Euro which was too soft. Control: In terms of control I am in big disagreement with Xiom here. They rate this as Tour/Pro, personally I think player with 6 months of training would be totally ok with this rubber. I played with Tenergy rubbers few years back when they were the best on the market and recently Xiom so I cant say I am an expert on tensor rubbers yet I cant say I have problems controlling this rubber. Depth and height are quality with XSE 2. Recommendation: From a beginner to a pro basically ï. I think that many Europeans will find this rubber good on FH or BH either way but people from Asia may prefer it on BH. Great job from Xiom. Have fun playing and enjoy life .
