Description of Adidas P7
The adidas P7 possesses an unparalleled ability by any other adidas rubber to generate spin. The combination of a top sheet specifically designed to create optimal spin and a hard sponge for additional force are key elements, resulting in the superior trajectory of every shot. Furthermore, with the rebound of each ball, control, balance, and power are all increased, making this rubber an excellent choice for those looking for an emphasis on touch.
Reviews of the Adidas P7

I had the opportunity to test the adidas p7 and as advertised a very spinny rubber. Used on a TB ALC lifting underspin balls is easy, generating spin on serves is really good. I just dont think the sponge is hard enough to generate speed to my liking though the speed is more than enough to finish a point, it does not have the pace like the adidas p5. Control is very good, blocking is easy and service reception is great as the spin does not bite into it as expected. Overall a very good rubber with insane spin, control and adequate speed, not to mention its light weight. I will further test it on a faster blade. Hope this helps

best rubber i've tried! spin and control is exceptional, speed is great. only drawback is that it is expensive.

Holy Smoke! Spin is ultimate. A very good rubber, among the best, for all types of play. My services is ridiculous good. The best topspin experience since Rakza 7. Pretty much alike the Rakza actually, not so fast, but even spinnier.

The best there is. Good on everything. The spin and feeling is outstanding. And i mean outstanding.Got to be tested to believe.

Unbearable fast, even spin can kill your ops. the rubber still requires a bit control skill player. Now I play with P7s

Quality, playability, control and spin wise, this rubber takes a backseat to no other rubber. The spin is mechanical and formidable. The topsheet is relatively insensitive to oncoming spin, so initially I popped a few pushes too high. Once I adjusted, I found myself flicking the ball over the net rather than pushing. Opening loops and third ball attacks are twice as easy as with Tenergy. Blocks like a wall, produces a wide array of loops and serves with heavy spin and precision. Compared with Tenergy 05 (my most recent rubber), I find the P7; has more spin, a lot more control, easier to loop, block and flick with. For my style of play, P7 suits my forehand much better than Tenergy 05 or 64 for that matter. It has good speed, more than enough for me. This just might be the best forehand rubber I ever played with. Leaves nothing to be desired.

I got this rubber through my friend from US. It it not available in India. I had it pasted on my Joola Rosskopf Emotion carbon, and in my backhand i have Xiom Vega Europe. This is by far the most spinniest and fastest rubber i have used on FH.
The spin on serves are not that high, but side spin loops have excellent spin. Apart from spining, the ball swings also. My opponents have touch time judging the ball. I used to be No 3 in my TT club, but i have become No 2 now coz of this rubber.
My friend who has Sigma 2 (IIRC) glued to Galaxy T11+ which is the fastest i have ever played, but uncontrollable. The P7 is much controllable, but faster too.
The high throw property is very much helpful for flat hitting and top spin smashes.
It is really amazing that the ball don't pop up while chopping the underspin balls. I could get the ball just above the nets, or even scratching the net.
I tried using P7 on my backhand, but i felt Vega europe is much faster.
I shifted from Tibhar Genius sound to P7, and i am much satisfied. It doesn't mean Genius sound is not good, but P7 is really good. But P7 is slightly heavier which i don't like.
Overall a very nice rubber, but Adidas is not capitilizing it's brand name in the TT rubber market. Hope they take this as feedback and so something to have the P7 easily available in India.

I got this attached to my Butterfly Innerforce ZLC both FH (MAX) and BH(2.0). Spin not as good as Tenergy 80 but the throw are on par and I gain more control with my BH (2.0) as compared with other rubber I used thus far.
lisaehk said this on October 13, 2013:
Got this from my coach (former finnish champion) because he said that my style suits this rubber. Been playing with Butterfly Tenergy 05 before. That is a good rubber, but this one is THE rubber. The sound, perfect speed and the hilarious spin is awesome. Never tried a rubber with so much spin before. And its not tacky. Anyway, been playing with it for 4 months now, and i am vever ever going to change this one!

Really great spin - create topspin and sidespin shots which explodes off the boounce. Counter loops are very effective. Control against serves, incoming topspin is excellent. Can pickup heavy chops well or push back with good placement. I've used all the Tenergy(s), Acuda/Bluefire, Hexer(s), Omega/Sigma and Hurricanes but like this the best for the balance of speed, control and spin for the ZLF blade I am currently using

This rubber is awesome topspin and sidespin shots are very effective.Super control.Great speed and power.

Great rubber for topspins. For me same level as Giant Dragon Topenergy. I love it and is a blockmonster too.
bfreund said this on January 20, 2014:
Incredibly spin server, fast but still super control, for example block which is also incredible toxic when they come out very flat and makes it hard for your opponent to to loop back on. Not tacky but as I said, incredible spin anyway.

I like this rubber! Very good control, spin and enough speed for me. The P7 is a little bit slower than the Tenergy 05. All around, a very good and solid Rubber. The price / performance is very good. Test it!

Insane spin, insane control and perfect speed. Put it on a fast blade. Ebenholz or the likes are the best for this.
nebur86 said this on February 18, 2014:
Plays really well if you're an attacker. Easy to open up on underspin even when you're stroke isn't good, more forgiving than tenergy 80. Has monstrous amounts of spin if looped well.
Pushing takes some getting used to, especially on forehand, but I'm coming from Mark V which isn't a tensor so that might be it.
Absolutely love the spin on serves and loops. Keeps power even when attacking from further away.
Blocking is a treat, is somehow less sensitive to incoming spin then Tenergy 80 which makes service returns and blocks good to do. Even blocking further away from the table keeps decent speed which is good for a tall player like me who can't keep close to the table at all times.
Best rubber i've tried so far for attacking, looping and blocking.. pushing will take me some practice tho

OK -you can read as many reviews as you want, but when you're actually there... to see the faces across the table, like "Whoa, what loop was THAT?" "Hey, did you see the spin on that ball?"and so on, you know that you found berth. Adidas, very well done. A rubber for those who love the pain all over the swinging side after a training, from the earlobe to the hip bone, simply because YOU GO FOR EVERY STROKE LIKE CRAZY WITH THIS ONE!
benxx said this on April 8, 2014:
After changing my game from playing with two backside rubbers to one side long pimples I had to adjust my FH as well. When given the opportunity I have to finish the point with a smash or fast spinny drive. I needed a rubber that provided me with enough speed but also enough spin and control. I think I found the exact match for my wishes. I play the P7 in black and 1,8mm and it plays awesome. The sponge maybe medium hard but the topsheet is very soft, easy to loop with, even great for chopping on my FH. When the rubber is worn out perhaps I'll try 2.0mm or max for even more speed but at the moment I'm very happy with this one. Btw, I had some trouble glueing the sheet on my Titan, the sponge is quite glue absorbing.
After a few months I tried the Max version of this rubber. Unfortunately it was a bit heavy but also for me it felt too mushy. I didn't get the right feeling when contacting the ball with the rubber. I'll keep the 1,8mm version, it still works great for me.

Before played with vega pro and now can compare both.
Played only once, but it seems that spin is the same for both.
What i find better with p7 is that counterloops are much easier now, blocks are great and often second loop against my block goes long. This is interesting how it blocks.
Loops are nice and controlled, more control than vega pro.
Weight for p7(2.0) is 46-47 grams cutted on xiom solo(same as vega pro).
Overall controll is nice and this will be my new fh rubber.

This is good for everything! I kid you not. Have been playing and testing 70-80 rubbers for 5 years now, but none so good as this. The spin is out of this world. I want to marry this sexy little babe...
igszoctan said this on May 30, 2014:
No glueing difficulties at all. Water based glue, one layer on the rubber and one on the blade, wait till glue is transparent, for about half an hour, of course, time factor depends on the enviornment. Playing properties are great, as described above. Crazy spin. If you experience stronger spin, feel free to let me know :-)
Update after six months:
Prefer in 2mm.
It is unbeatable on BH side ;)

Because of silly josh20 i must correct the review of Adidas p7
Duplik said this on June 15, 2014:
i used this, and is a very good rubber, can do what u want, and lift balls easily, the only problem is that after1 month, it started to lose it´s spin, and after 2 months it was dead already, i also think it´s a little expensive, i would like to buy one and at least use it for 4 months, if not i prefer to buy tenergy.
ghazkull6 said this on July 5, 2014:
absolutly awsome rubber the spin is massive and the speed isnt too fast. the kind of loops im able to generate now that ive got this on my forehand is amazing.
after 4 months of playing with this rubber 6 hours a week. i have found that the rubber really struggles with cold temperatures. If the weather is cold unless you find a way to warm the rubber up it feels like it dead but if the rubber is warm the rubber almost feels like new.
gogotop said this on July 16, 2014:
The rubber has incredible spin and control. Services and blocks are also amazing with it. The best rubber I have palyed with!
Smacfest said this on August 27, 2014:
Very good rubber. Have it on an off+ blade in 2.0mm on my forehand. Spin is incredible - off the scale. It is easy to put in a fast serve or deceive my opponent with the amount of spin I put on. Short serves are easy too, though you'll need to practice them a bit due to this rubber's bouncy surface. Picking up backspin can sometimes require more effort than other rubbers but this is only when picking up very heavy stuff. Any player who can use his legs well shouldn't have much of a problem. Flicks are easy and driving with this rubber is such a good feeling. It's easy to punish opposing topsins with a flat counter. The only issue I have (Not sure if anyone else has had this issue) is when returning multiple topspins with my own loop, sometimes the opposing topspin wouldn't react with my rubber. This doesn't happen often and I've adjusted my game now so I hit it a little flatter. Very good for a play style where you open up with some good spin and then batting away any loops you get back. It can take a little while to adapt to this rubber (Took me two weeks) but once you have - the potential is endless

I'm using this rubber on waldner senso carbon as FH rubber ,coupled with bluefire m3 on BH.
generally speaking,it is a great rubber, specially when it come to spin.
Then only problem I have with p7 is in short game.due to its bounciness ,it's hard to make very spiny short serves,specially ghost serve.
IMO,it's a good FH rubber and worth is price.
