Yasaka rubber VALMO, made in Japan using the latest Japanese technology, called “JP HYBRID”.
The top sheet has a large proportion of natural gum, which produces strong grip power and heavy spin. VALMO has a maximum
tension sponge which gives fast acceleration of the ball but also offers precision at high speeds with the grippy top sheet. Thanks
to this highly developed technology and stable arc this advanced rubber is very easy to play with.
Thicknesses: 2.0 mm and Max.

I bought recently these rubbers after taking a lot of time to find reviews over the internet plus a video that helped me a lot to see how these rubbers reacts to real conditions. After playing for almost 2 hours I must say these rubbers do the job more than I could imagine. Pros: High speed rubbers (tested first on forehand), giving me good speed and a nice spin as well. Tested on the backhand and results were very good. (Use & control very good) Speed is amazing either on forehand or backhand (personally I put them on my backhand) Good control of the ball from close-mid & far distance from the table. The only con that i found is that in case you use it on the backhand in slower speed balls is taking a little higher angle than usual and this is a minus. In case that you play a little faster (fast & aggressive players) the opponent will be difficult to send you the ball as he/she wants. In general, didn’t took me at all time to get them used and these was a plus. I must mention that the last 2 years all my rubbers was from Yasaka and that why.

The fatest Rubber in yasakas range, recommended for fast agressive offensive style players, and can generate a decent amount of spin as well as a tremendous amount of speed. Highly reccommended, faster than all tenergy rubbers, but slightly less control, as it will be hard to control with the amount of speed this produces. Highly reccommended for high advanced to semi pros.

Valmo is the newest pips-in rubber of Yasaka, it is made in Japan and they used the Japanese approach on building hybrid rubbers (built for the modern day tournament plastic balls) and the finished product is unbelievably great. Perfect for backhand in my opinion. I use this on Yasaka Max Carbon 3D blade and it is a killer. Spins and loops are easy to do and the speed that you can generate (with proper technique) is unmatched. Control is adequate so it is great for blocking and flicks. This rubber is good on close-to-table plays and performs well in mid-range and away-from-table game. The only downside, the logo and rubber code is not in the middle so it is a bit awkward to look at (it is a manufacturing issue according to TT11) but if you can live with that, this rubber can take your skill to a different level. Highly recommended for backhand oriented players.

So when i first got this rubber i was a flat hitter, and this rubber, although very fast when flat hitting,it is better for looping. It produces a bit more spin then the TSP super ventus, as well as the hexer grip. I believe the most prominent feature of this rubber is its feeling; it feel almost a soft as the rakza 7 soft, but unlike the R7S it never bottoms out, even when you blast the ball as hard as you can it will barely get down to the blade, and nobody ever needs to hit it that hard in a game. And unlike a lot of rubbers i have used (hexer grip, super ventus, rakza 7, rakza 9 among others) this rubber doesn't "bite" the ball, instead i'd say the ball sinks into it before being propelled out with lots of feeling and control. i personally use it on my forhand on 3 different blades currently (1. Tibhar stratus power wood OFF- 2. andro kanter explorer OFF 3. premade donic waldner 900 blade ALL/ALL+), i don't like it on my BH because of the propelling feeling as i prefer the "biting" feeling on my BH. - Over all I personally think this is far superior to the rakza series when it comes to a looping play style, generating slightly more spin and and a tiny bit more speed then the rakza 9 with a unique feel, and the durability is great being primarily made out of a very flexible rubbery natural gum. 9.5/10
