Reviews of the Stiga Boost TC

Review ibupro said this on November 21, 2008:

Update: Chucked the T-4 in favor of the Gatien Extra as the mount of choice for Boost TC. On this blade TC shows its promise with amazing speed when looping!

For me these new post SG ban Euro tech sheets perform best on the old style 5 ply wood blades designed for the SG era.

TC is great for top spin play and shows solid performance in counters and blocks. Good control for all top spin play.
If you have trouble with soft sponge for over the table play I imagine TC will provide a bit of a challenge to you, but you should be able to adjust if your blade gives good feedback.

I am currently experiencing tendinitis and can't do much in the way of serving, but TC seems to deliver good spin rather easily.

Did I mention that TC is great for looping?
Got footwork?
Review BACKHAND said this on November 24, 2008:

This is a very spinny rubber.
Good for serving and looping.
I'm using it on a fast carbon blade.]
The control is good.
Like all these new style rubbers, they are a bit slow compared to glued rubbers, so a fast blade is a must.
Don't go to far back when looping.
The only negative I have is in pushing.
It doesn't have the feel of a glued rubber.
Although a bit more effort is needed in all shot making, I have found this to be the closest to a speed glued rubber so far

good rubber but not too durable.
Review gekogark1212 said this on April 12, 2009:

Soft sponged, feels very similar to a glued rubber. It does require a couple of sessions for the spin and speed to show up. Requires a good stretching when attaching to the blade.

Surprisingly good speed off the table, but correct positioning is crucial.

One thing to note is to not powerloop too hard, try to use feel/touch to prevent the ball sinking in too deeply and bottoming out the sponge.

A very well balanced rubber, possibly the closest to glue in terms of speed, spin and control.
Review jeff_attc said this on June 7, 2009:

Very spinney rubber. Feels like a regular unglued rubber except faster and spinier. Is very grippy and get gripper when you clean it. If your rubber hit the table it will tear.

Not the best rubber for away from the table looping but doable. Good for blocking, countering, and looping near the table. Is not bouncy like the tensors so it is easier to dump short balls off pushes. Looping backspin isn't bad do to the very gripy topsheet. Out of all the glue effect rubbers I consider the Boost Series of rubbers to be the grippiest. Boost borders the fine line between tacky and grippy.

Will feel mushy on an ALC blade. I recommend it for hard blades. I use it on a Clipper CR WRB and it feels very good and it listens to what I make it do.
Review Speedy said this on August 4, 2009:

Plays very well on a harder carbon blade. I am currently using BTY Maze (OFF) and it works very well.
This combo is the closest thing to SP Bryce on an soft All+ arylate blade (Timo Boll Spark).
Good durability, have played mine for 2 month (2-3 times a week) and is still feel fully playable.

SOFT I really have to find that fine line of grazing the ball or it will sink and b hard to controll great for lifting back spin so far so good

love this rubber got it on stiga offensive oversized f/h 2.0 great spin and speed really helped my game
Review Anonymous said this on March 8, 2010:

Used this rubber for over 3 months now. Practise on average 2 to 3 times a week.
Have it in the 2.1 version on both backhand and forehand attached to a Primorac OFF- blade.
Lovely feel when shot making.
Very consistent when blocking or looping.

Service spin variable in that if you relax hand too much and throw a higher trajectory toss then the ball doesn't sink in and achieve the necessary grip.
A medium to low toss combined with a faster arm less wrist action helps it to bite better.

Touch not too bad, will depend greatly on your playing level.
Beginners might find it a bit to springy.

Looping arc moderate ... not as steep as say a Sriver, but not as direct as Bryce.

Durability suspect, though better than some High Tension rubbers.

Overall a classy piece of kit which is very versatile with a few stroke alterations here and there.

Review JAV said this on August 28, 2011:

can i put it on viscaria?
Review Anonymous said this on February 4, 2012:

I use it on forehand on a Butterfly Timo Boll ALC blade with Neos Tacky on the backhand. Nice and quick but plenty of control to suit a blocking game as well as an attacking style when required.
Review The_Coach said this on September 11, 2012:

A nice, fast, soft rubber with a lot of potential. The sponge isn't that durable if you reglue it. I find it difficult to generate the spin I want, so I prefer Butterfly Tenergy 64 instead.
Review Frogger said this on December 7, 2012:

This rubber offers high speed/spin for intermediate to advanced players. Great for service, loops and fast counters. Works best on all wood blades in the ALL+, Off-, Off classes. Good durability and high quality. Better ball feel than Tenergy's. One of the very best top rubbers worldwide.
Review prent73 said this on March 25, 2013:

One of the best FH rubber for any level players!
Review jocky said this on December 23, 2013:
