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.

I'm currently using this rubber on two blades on my forehand, one is an OFF and the other is an ALL+. on the ALL+ blade, It's amazing, extremely controllable but still very fast, I would say it's so fast it makes it feel like an OFF bat on that side. On the OFF blade, it's mental, tonnes of speed, still a great amount of control, the only downside is that I believe this rubber isn't as spiny as it is rated on here, but the controllability makes up for it in spades. As well as the feel/dwell, when the ball hits this rubber, it feels like it could sit their all day before you decide to play your shot which makes it great for close to mid distance play. I've used this on my backhand as well, it's also great with backhand play, on the backhand the speed can be a bit problematic at times if you're too close to the table during a rally. I'd say this rubber excels at fast pace play mid distance from the table, Starting an attack, and controlled blocking. tl;dr, this is a fast pace attackers dream rubber.

This rubber should not be the fastest out there, combined with dhs hurricane long 5 at maximum thickness it feels noticeably slower than Aurus Prime on my FH. Other rubbers like T05, MXP, bluestorm Z1 are also faster. Control is great for serve receive and topspin blocks. Backspin lift is very nice. Its high arc provide high margin to clear the net. Great choice for BH but a bit too slow for aggressive FB play.
