After playing with Mark V on my FH for many years and recently trying some different rubbers I have settled on Hexer Duro. Despite it being my first real tensor type rubber I found it quite easy to adjust due to Hexer Duro having very good control in all strokes. Duro also has some quite similar all-round properties to Mark V which suits my game style as well as similar (medium) sponge hardness. I think it is a superbly balanced rubber with regard to speed/spin/control and I will stick with it for the foreseeable future.

I´ve been playing these rubbers in 1,9 on vh + bh with the Butterfly Primorac for one season. I find it very versatile, looping is quite easy as well as blocking and the short play over the table.
What I find very helpful is the higher throw angle which I was missing with my previous rubbers (CTT National Hero, Yasaka Mark V) and that supports my technique. Really hard to understand why this rubber has a relatively low rating allthough it is quite similar to the Xion Vega Europe.

The red sheet is way better than the black one.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned how soft the sponge on the Duro is. It's definitely not medium hard but soft instead. On loop drives and hits the ball bottoms out and it sounds like it's hitting wood as well. It does not have a linear response and I don't like it. If you like your sponges soft this might work for you but if you like your rubber linear but durable, you might want to look elsewhere, like the classic Sriver or Mark V.

Very good rubber, not sure why it has so low ratings... Can be used on FH or BH very direct with plenty of spin. I am using it on Xiom Zetra Quad as forehand rubber in 2.1mm thickness. Exellent for top spin drives, looping and blocking. Perfect hardness for me some where between medium and medium-hard. Great durability.
