Tried this rubber found it to have little effect and allowed opponents to attack chopped or blocked balls. Now where near as effective as standard meteorite rubber. Very Dissapointed.

The rubber is much over-rated on this site. No idea why... Some ratings might come from the manufacturers, others from people with little experience with long pips.
Compared to Dragon Talon it offers far less to all around players. If you cannot afford the more expensive Dragon Talon go for it, but don't expect to shine, as your play will be limited by the rubber.
I didn't feel any significant differences between the classic and the soft versions of Meteorite.
Definitely not better than Dawei 388 D1, which you can get for about 4 USD from ttnpp :-)

I use this on my bh and loops are easy to deal with and it has lot of control, I was able to do almost normal bh loops whit it but with less spin. I use with 1,6mm sponge.

Very good rubber!! Chopping is very nice, fantastic control and good spin, also good close to the table with ok spinreversal. I think its even better with a 0.6 mm bluthenkirsce sponge..

This is an outstanding rubber for modern defenders. As the packaging says, it is slower than ordinary Meteorite and hence much better for chopping (whereas ordinary Meteorite is better close to the table). The spin reversal/continuation on chops is excellent, and this can be combined with confusing/wobbling pushing and lifting as well as chop-blocks at the table. Not a rubber for hitting outright winners with, but excellent for drawing weak balls which can be strongly attacked. The OX version is very effective on an Andro FibercompDEF blade, giving great control and consistency (as well as being quite forgiving: the ball goes where you want it to even if the timing or stroke is slightly off). Highly recommended.
