Amazing for blocking (very fast return), topspin to topspin, flat hitting is good. Short game is also good. Lifting backspin is a piece of cake but accurate. Spinny! Good also in serving. Try it!

I use XIOM RSM patinum specail penhold (10.5 mm), my racket is 98 gram, the uncut powergrip rubber (2.1 mm) is 73.4 gram, and the cutted rubber is 46.2 grams (heavier than Rasant (Max), 44.5 grams; XIOM vega pro (MAx), around 43 gram; and XIOM Sigma europe (Max), around 44 gram near the weight of DHS Hurricane III (Max, 37 degree)). The spin/speed ratio is good, The gears in speed is better then those in spin. The push and control is relatively weak (due to its heavy nature). I had used near 10 Vega pro rubbers before, and the average honey period of Vega Pro rubber is around 1-2 months , and then the sponge is dead. The Sigma Pro had a little longer honey time (around 2 months), The felxibility of the green sponge in the rasant seires seemed to be higher than the sponge in XIOM's rubber, but the actual durability of this powergirp rubber is pending. I may have a review in the later months

using the 2.1 thickness. Good match with my zetro quad (OFF blade). Blocking is a breeze. Spin is good. Speed is fast, matches the t05 in my opinion. Powergrip has a lower throw than the t05 which i like and did i mention that it is less than $40 @tt-japan.net? Looping is excellent. You need a good topspin stroke to unlock the spin of this rubber, if not, the speed will win the point :).
Update: lasted for about 4months (10-12 hours/week) less spin, harder to lift underspin balls.

This is a very bouncy, fast rubber. I bought it in red, max thickness. It is very heavy, especially in red. The rubber mass database lists it as one of the top densest rubbers out there. So, if you want light, don't buy this. It is very spinny, and spin is created easily, just like with Tenergy. It is also very fast and bouncy due to it being a tensor. Blocks are great, and flicks and brushes are surprisingly spinny and generally good for a non-tacky rubber. A lot of power can be easily generated with this. I use it on the backhand because I used to have issues with generating power there. If you can already hit hard and just want more spin, this rubber is not the best choice. It is primarily for those who want fast, spinny loops and extra power. It is very good at counterlooping and it sounds terrific, like an old speed-glued rubber. It is for the purely offensive player, but it is still capable of great chops and pushes if the situation requires it.

Good rubber. This rubber has changed my clubs view on Tenergy's being best rubber. Play style near to medium distance from board.
