When I got it (delta sound+ on a T 11+ Blade) after first 1-2 hour play was not very happy, but next day -Maybe just me or the rubber braked in, but one of the best overall BH rubber(can not miss ,:hits, spins, blocks, you name it...) for Me-my stile , and believe me tried 100`s in a last 40 year playing TT, you have to try it.

I give this rubber a 6.5, although I think it plays like an 7.5. The reason is that it wore out much faster than I would expect. I'm not sure what happened, because the grip of the topsheet is still okay, but the sponge seems worn out and slow. I've had the rubber for about 4 months, and I play about 5 times per week for an hour. Not too much play time. Performance wise: it's a viable rubber for its price range. It leans towards control more than speed, but lacks spin in my opinion. Blocks and hits are really solid and snappy. Loops are decent, but are somewhat slow and lack the wicked spin that you generally look for. Overall, I think there's better options out there for people who like to hit. It works well on backhand for me, since I'm lefty, because it blocks nicely. I considered keeping it on BH, but instead chose to try the Focus Snipe III (same price), which I feel is a much better rubber for my play style. BH loops are way more deadly, but blocks are harder to control. It's worth the trade IMO. I had the 1.9mm version and a W-6 blade, as per TT Cole's recommendations.

Linear rubber with decent speed, even on an ALL+ blade. Lightly tacky with good grip allow for spinny loops, but it does everything pretty well in general. You can play it like a euro style looping rubber from close to mid distance, but you can chop with it too, or load extra backspin on pushes. It's excellent for looping backspin as well. No general weaknesses. Very good for beginner to intermediate level who prefer classic rubbers but rather not pay double for MarkV's. Like a lot of classic rubbers, this rubber provides plenty of feel and consistency to develop technique, but provides a bit more spin than that of Sriver/MarkV.

Bat - Galaxy W-6 I use this rubber on my BH and I really like the gears on it. Lots of pop when flicking or looping, and it has a very light touch on the short game. It generates lots of spin, and so it takes a little getting used to coming off a lower spin rubber. I've only played with it an hour or so, but I'm really starting to get used to it, and I really like the way it behaves.
