Reviews of the Dawei 2008 XP (Super Power)

Review ppgear said this on March 1, 2008:

This is a great economical rubber. It's lightly tacky and is fairly comparable to most Chinese rubbers. It blocks kind of low, so you have to open your angle a little more I find, which is awkward since I'm used to closing the angle more when blocking loops. This is always what I recommend to people making their first jump up to custom rackets, but purely based on price. Once you refine your stroke, you can still generate mean loops.

The best price/quality rubber!

Great economical rubber! Average speed-spin ratio with nice control.
Easy to loop with and counterloop due to a bit of elasticity. It brings some pace for a rubber under $10.
HIGH RECOMMENDED!!

WRONG ABOUT DAWEI 1.8 BEING SLOW AT FH CHOPS - IF AWAY AND REACHING UT VS A FAST TOPSPIN ITS BETTER TO NOT CHOP AND JUST LOB/BLOCK IT. CHOP IS FAST UNLESS ITS CLOSER TO BODY AND UR EXPECTING IT. PREFER TO USE IT TO FISH OR BLOCK AS PART OF A GOOD DEFENCE STRATEGY WHICH IT DOES VERY WELL WHEN UNDER ATTACK.

CLOSER TO THE TABLE AND UNDER THE SAME FAST ATTACK ITS VERY GOOD AT QUICK CLOSED BLOCKS AND FH CHOP WILL BE SLOW WITH LESS WRIST MOTION AND BODY MOVEMENT.

If you compare what you give for what you get you get a completely "10". This rubber is ridiculously cheap, around 10 Euro, and have the same playing characteristics that other x3 money rubbers can do. Only bad thing is that you might not like the kinda hard sponge. Similar to Mendo MP, more spiny, faster, more durable and costs ~10 Euro. Try it!

Can hit and spin pretty hard with a little effort, but somewhat inconsistent. Compared to Quattro on the same blade and using a robot for steady placement, hits with the Super Power side occassionally went into the net or would fly off the back end. None of that was noted with Quattro. It's also pretty heavy (69 grams uncut, 1.8mm).

Review ilmi said this on January 9, 2012:

for a cheap rubber.. it almost can do anything. don't use sponge 1.5mm in your FH ... use max sponge.

on of the best chinese rubber. has good speed and spin. feel soft. looping is very easy. put it on the hard fast blade..it will show its power..
Review TTPlayer said this on March 18, 2012:

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.

I really love the price
I could produce enough speed to disturb my oponent.
little spin & quite nice control
I ever try 1.8 mm sponge and 2.2 mm sponge.
Review poknas said this on July 4, 2012:

My first rubber that i bought myself..mainly because of its price..compare to other chinese rubber that i've used its tackiness stay for a long time but still cannot generate dangeruos spin..the main advantage came from its sponge(hard) it can generate decent speed..like all chinese rubber, you've got to play with it for a few hour before you gain the advantage of it.

Voici un revªtement id©al pour un d©butant, r©gulier dans chaque caract©ristique. A conseiller vivement ;-)
Review Tokieboi said this on May 9, 2014:

Best value for money rubber. If you a cheapo like me, and didn't want to spend much money to try many rubbers, get this rubber. For it's price, I will rate :
Speed 8/10
Spin 9/10
Control 9/10

And this rubber is very durable. After 2 months of playing (play 3-4 times per week, each season last 2-4 hours), with proper cleaning and maintenance (I wipe with wet towel after each game), the rubber still looks and perform like new.
Review pippy said this on August 10, 2014:

Another re-write and it won't be my last:) Everyone likes this rubber for the price to performance ratio incl me. I'm not a looper but in practice I can hit all the basic inverted strokes and I have used the 1.5 and 1.8 version on the R2. It's a great rubber and if I can't afford the better stuff, this would be good enough for my pushblocking setups for the fh rubber.
