This rubber hits like Thor's hammer however very good arm speed and hip rotation is a must to get full power out of this bad boy. Not slow as some may suggest. If you have excellent technique this rubber is brilliant. Not a touchy feely rubber but has nice touch for the short game. Heavy rubber so select your blade weight with care. Top end speed is pretty fast and the spin is easily on par with many spinny Chinese type rubbers, Pair this with OFF+ class blades and you will have Thor's hammer.

Palio thors like no other rubbers is a dream come true for the one getting difficulties in lifting backspin and countering topspin. This is a must buy rubber and it is most sutible for forehand.I love this rubber just good enough as a suppriser rubber to your opponents.

Feels exactly the same as Vega China to me....

Ive used this rubber on fh for a long time, alternating with adidas P7, but prefer the tack of the Thors close to the table to be able to flick, loop and attack closer to the net.
As pointed out, it tends to work better on stiff blades.
Its a great rubber for powerdrives with max spin and very high speed aswell. And very hard smashes. It doesnt have all the midgears perhaps, but its certainly effective at decent enough competition levels.
Perhaps it will never be used by Xu Xin and the likes, but for us mere mortals who likes to win a couple of nice points with spin and/or speed monsters its a great and really fun rubber to play with, and its effective aswell if you learn to handle it. My training partner who is better than me uses it aswell in his modern defensive style with counterattacking on the fh, and it works great for that as well.
We are happy with it :-)

Fantastic rubber. Prefer to play it on a Def-wood. Then it's very controlable and powerful enough for offence game. Created big progress for my game.
