Powerful New Generation of STS developed to comply with new Speed glue rules.

STS is well known for giving 2/3 of tension energy to spin and 1/3 to speed.

Xtend HS has been re-designed to deliver even greater power.

To comply with the ban on speed gluing, Yasaka has developed a powerful new tension rubber.

The top sheet and sponge have been completely re-designed by ground breaking new technology.

It delivers high-power speed with easy handling.

Please do not apply speed glue, as it will destroy the rubber.

Great rubber for BH. I think best rubber for BH I ever tried. Its fast, but very controllable; spinny but linear. Its soft and light. My BH improved alot with this rubber; attacking, blocking and flipping is simple with Xtend HS. Must try.

Speed is fast, spin is poor. Control is average. Sponge feels soft, and durability is not good. Looping is great on a high-flex blade. Really fast on a stiff off+ rated blade. But spin on both blades is the same.

not my favorite, expecting more speed and less spin.

Just replaced Yasaka Fusion with Xtend HS on my backhand. Xtend is noticeably faster, which is what I was after. Blocks ok, although can react to spin and speed, so is more like an attacking rubber when close. Step back one step, and you have really good control. Has good hitting power, and is pretty good at picking the ball up for a backhand topspin, including soft loops. The advertising talks about a special sound it makes, and they are not exaggerating. It actually does make a very satisfying "wok!" sound when you give it some force. This was first day, so perhaps it will change over time, but so far, it was been a nice step up from the defensive style of Fusion, into a more attacking, fun rubber.

Low throw angle and good rebound makes this a true close to the table rubber. Makes a slap sound to a flat hit but needs real work away from the table. Counter hitting needs control but counter looping and early third ball attack is a dream. Ball loads with top spin but again away from the table needs too much work. If you prefer to stay in this is a treat.
