Posting first impressions here for the 1.8mm/40 deg version affixed to a Gatien Extra3D blade (no speed glue). Didnt expect the speed; sponge is very bouncy and dissipates energy very slowly, even in the 1.8mm version. The initial tackiness made it a bit slower, but the ball bounced as long/high as a glued mendoMP! There is a slight clicking sound, due to the tensioned topsheet. Medium heavy. Plenty of spin, again as much as the mendoMP. Able to chop, loop or drive. Throw angle is a bit higher than the mendo mp. It seems to lack the high end gears of the mendoMP, but I got this for a backhand rubber and it fits nicely. For this price it is a steal. 2 weeks later, tackiness has worn off, but spin has not diminished in any way. Great speed too and seems to have quite a few gears. Seems to be effective as a forehand rubber as well. Later: The contact with the tacky, shining parts of the top sheet produces a crackling sound. The tackiness seems to have worn away in patches, withe non-tacky areas appearing foggy and the tacky part shiny. This is contributing to the observed playing inconsistency. Also, temperature seems to have a profound effect - we played in a cold room and the sponge loses its bouncy characteristic. A few warm breaths and the bounciness reappears.

Tested Red and Black 2.2mm 43? hardness Rubber is medium tacky. Spin is quite good. Sponge is medium-hard so quite consistent but difficult to block as not much natural bounce. Control was OK with decent dwell time but less than softer rubbers. Throw angle I found to be medium-low. A bit lower than average. Pushing and chop serves were OK for control and spin. Good for attacking close and mid-distance to the table. Lacks some gears to attack at pace further back from the table. Needs a slightly faster blade to compensate if you play mainly from that distance. Overall, it is a pretty good all-round attacking rubber with good speed and spin. Further back, it lacks little pace, and difficult to block close to the table as the rubbers are medium-hard. Overall pretty good if you like medium-hard sponge rubbers. The best feature for these rubbers though is the price. They are very good value for money. My ratings: Speed: 7.7; Spin: 8.0; Control: 8.5 Tackiness: Medium tacky; Weight: Average; Sponge Hardness: Medium-hard; Gear: Few gears; Throw Angle: Medium-low ; Consistency: Always identical; Durability: Average; Overall: 7.7

Very cheap and durable rubber. Medium speed, needs to put on a fast 7ply blade to get the most out of it. Good control.

Perfect beginner rubber if not for the weight (>50g cut). Not very tacky but lots of spin. Said to be like sriver but 90% cheaper.
