MO with 0.50 mm manufacturer (Avalox) supplied sponge is a truly great all round long pimples rubber. It pairs very well with defensive / all round all 3 / 5 ply wood blades. Tested with Butterfly Mat Pro, Mat Pro Special, Grubba Pro AN, Elegance, JSH, Innershield ZLF, Defense Alpha, Defense II, among others. Also played for a while using Donic Persson Power All Round ST. It does not seem to match very well with Carbon frames. Surprisingly, MO on 0.5 mm sponge worked wonderfully on Butterfly FireHand (OFF -) and Butterfly PowerDrive (Old) blades even even though they are faster blades meant for offensive play. One can block, hit, chop-block, chop, and try a variety of standard LP strokes with MO. MO has thin and long pimples that are a bit stiff and highly elastic. Mo is slightly faster than TSP Curl series rubbers and Butterfly Feint series rubbers. Avalox MO on 0.50 mm sponge is very good for hitting. The level of surface friction of the pimples (Tops) is lower than Feint or TSP Curl series rubbers. Hence Mo is good in receiving serves. People say that MO closely resembles Feint Long II. It is not very popular because of its limited availability. Red MO rubbers seemed to me to be superior to Black MO rubbers. You will not be disappointed. Good luck!

I used a Avalox Mo wiht 0.5mm sponge. It is very cool. It is well for "chop" and has a good reversal, nothing awesome, but good. It is not slower than the people thought. It is a good long pips rubber.

Pimples are a little stiff and quite insensitive to spin. Reversal is good for grippy pimple, but not compared to a frictionless on. This pip is great for hitting and attacking, giving good reversal when attacking backspin, but can counter hit loops with a little topspin. A little fast for chopping and drop shots, unless used on a slow blade, like a slow balsa blade. In OX it may change quite a bit, and may be much more suitable for blocking and drop shots... I have not yet tried this.
