And incredibly rewarding piece of equipment when used correctly would you recommend for an intermediate player as very fast and difficult to control

As typical BTY packaging as you are going to get. Protective paper over rubber. Rubber is very soft with dark yellow sponge. Ok size pores on the sponge.
Spin and speed:
This was a pleasant surprise to me. From ratings I did not expect much out of this rubber but I must say this is not much short from T64 fx. Trajectory is crazy long as with a lot of BTY rubbers in modern era. Rubber grips the ball well and it will curve it down to the table near the edge of table. Spin is much better than I expected reading other ratings and so is speed. Blocking and quick BH action goes very nice with very little effort. I am not sure if top sheet of this rubber has any difference regarding tension and chemical composition to T64. G3 fx is very high tension top sheet, and like the rest of the tenergies it will go bit harder over time.
Who should use this:
This product has some price on it so I would not recommend it for beginners. Since rubber is fast and soft I think a lot of Euro players may like it on BH. If you really like control I guess you can go to FH with it but it does not have that typical FH rubber sharpness. If you are average club player chances are you will be happy with this rubber.
Have fun and enjoy TT.

es un jebe muy ligero, de buen control y rapidez considerable para un juego no profesional, mas bien sera un previo a poder usar esponjas mas r¡pidas que requieren mejor t©cnica.

Used it briefly for forehand 2.1mm on timoboll w7. It is very similar to g3 with slightly different touch feel. Has the speed of bryce and control of solution. Great for top spin play but is slightly slow for a modern day fh rubber. It works best for backhand. Performs equally well for far table as sriver g3 but tad slow for close table. Good Control and throw angle so it's best for all round players and Def players. Don't be fooled by the softness because when you add power in your shots, it can be very fast.

I use Sriver G3 FX with sardius blade and TSP Super Spinpips on my backhand. I use it almost 1 year and i have change my rubber with the same type for 2 times (once every six months). Sardius make the ball run very fast, and with G3 FX on it, you don't have to use a lot power to make the ball running. Good for chopping and spinning, but you have to be aware with the angle of your blade if you want to block the ball.
