It crushes the ball! Tremendous speed and power, makes a really crisp sound when you make good contract, loops are pretty good also. I bought 47.5 degree, 2.0 mm, red and it weighed 66 grams uncut. It shrank back off the edge 2 weeks after I cut it. Took it off and transfered to another blade (Galaxy K4) and it still hits hard and crisp. I don't see any degradation in performance. The 42.5 degree, 2.0mm black came at 57 grams. The topsheet has a really nice sheen and stays that way even after repeated cleanings. Not tacky, but produces good serves. Good product!

This is one of the best rubbers I've played with. Currently using it on the BH, but have just ordered one for the FH too. At 28 USD it's really affordable.
The rubber is great for aggressive attackers, but it's also an excellent defensive weapon. Great for looping too.
Thumbs up for MacroEra. It's really worth the money.

I got this right after the Gambler Outlaw max. I got the 47.5 degree sponge in max on the ERA. At first I only noticed that it was easier to loop underspin balls, but after another session, I noticed that the ERA seems to have a whole other gear on smashes and loop drives. My serves are now spinnier and I have more control in my loops. It is easier to vary the amount of spin in my loops and I can get overall more spin on my loops.
I had to adjust my blocking a little bit as the ERA has more bounce to it, but I was also able to take out all of the opponents speed and spin. Even though the ERA is ever so slightly tackier, it is not much affected by incoming spin.
I had a couple small encounters with the table on surprising short or net shots, but all I can see is very little scuffing on the rubber. The Outlaw had a few chunks missing on the outside from similar encounters.
I will have to watch how durable the rubber is.
If you hit the ball right, it clicks quite loud too.
I like the 42.5 degree version better than the 47.5. Loads of spin available a bit more control for a minimum loss on mid gear speed. I noticed that I had to close the blade a bit more on loop drives versus the harder version. The softer version seems to have a bit more catapult in the lower gears that made control shots go just long. By the end of the first night I almost had adjusted to it. One more practice should do it.

Yellow sponge with high quality ESN top sheet. At 42 degree hardness rubber feels along the lines of T64, Sigma 2 Euro... Ok pack but there are much better packs out there.
Spin and speed:
All there as with any modern rubber... I can’t bottom out even the softer version at 42. Great curve on the ball close to the table and off the table rubber provides fair amount of speed.
Price ofc.... For just under 30 bucks you get the performance of much more expensive rubbers. You can save around 20 bucks per sheet going with Palio and not lose any performance since ESN rubbers at medium hardness are nearly identical.
My new BH rubber.
Have fun with TT and enjoy life!

I used it about a month. On Yasaka Ekstra blade, 2 sides, max thikness. I notably improved my BH. I am very satisfied about it. Even enjoy for this fact. But my FH became worse, because much more balls go out of the table. It is still fast for my FH. Not for beginners.
After 4 months I could not play well with this rubbers. Very, very low control. I sold them. That is the main reason. And I bouth second hand JOOLA RHIZM. That is my rubber!
