I use 1.0 for BH on a ALL+ blade. Great for close to table blocking and service return. Outstanding for flicks with very good speed. Speedy even with 1.0 sponge. Can execute a low spin loop with good wrist motion. Chops are good. Price to performance factor is great. This is a good pips rubber for combination players using inverted on FH and pips on the back side. Can generate surprising spin with good technique. Just as good as BTY Challenger but at a better price.

Great defensive rubber in 1.0 - 1.5 mm . Also does everything else other than loop. Chops like a demon though and you can hit through almost any amount of spin.

802 is my favorite SP mostly because it is so easy to use. I play with 802 1.5mm and 802 2mm. 802 can do just about anything but a true loop. What I like is that I can just hit the ball off the bounce and the sink effect will keep the ball on the table. The 1.5mm can chop well if you need to move away from the table. The 1.5mm is not quite as good as the 2mm when it comes to blocking fast loops because the 1.5mm bottoms out and doesn't absorb as much energy as the 2mm does. However, the 2mm doesn't chop as well.
One doesn't think of 802 as being that spinny but I can hit the ball with enough spin to give people trouble. I like hitting with side spin so the ball goes across their switch over point.
What I really like is that 802 is simple to use with no surprises. If you have a good BH that can hit low, fast and accurately over the net then this rubber is for you.

Rewrite#2: I use this on my R2 off- blade with talon ox. It is a do-it-all rubber. Chops like lp but hard to do it against really spinny topspins. Loops like inverted, but with lower spin range. SPs are the most difficult for me to use as they have qualities of both ends of the spectrum. I like it on my fh.
