Description of Stiga Calibra LT

Calibra LT from STIGA has a medium hard sponge, suitable for the highly skilled player with excellent technique. Calibra LT is for advanced players who demand tremendous spin and speed, combined with a sensitive touch. If you want to advance your game, this is the rubber for you!

With the Calibra series we have created a totally new dimension to the game. We focused on creating a longer trajectory on the ball, as a long trajectory in today's game is more and more important. The combination of spin, speed and long trajectory is unique to this rubber series; you have never felt this level of play before. With the Calibra LT rubbers you will be able to perform strokes and shots never before possible. You will still have control for all the small shots and service return, but when you are attacking you will be in a totally new world. The Calibra LT series will take your game to another level.

I am an All/OFF- USATT ~2000 player. I have used this rubber both in the FH/BH. In my opinion, it is a great rubber for hard direct hitters but less suitable for players who exclusive rely on topspin, due to its low throw angle. I found it to be an excellent BH rubber. Very crisp feel (medium-hard sponge). Good short game. Fast, but still good control. The rubber is very light (15% lighter than an Andro Rasant Grip).

(used on FH; 2.0) Never thought I'd say this, but Stiga Calibra LT is better for me than T05!! T05 has it all: speed, spin, control. Calibra LT has even more speed and control. You can control every shot from dropping a serve back short (really short!) to spinning cross court full power. A slow loop can produce a lot of spin when the ball is lightly brushed. The ball trajectory seems to be longer but can be easily adjusted for. In fact when you get used to it the ball hits the table near the end and is much harder to block for your opponent. Pure speed kicks in when you loop full power. Flat strokes aren't that impressive. The main difference between T05 and this one is the lower throwing angle. This needs a bit of getting used to. I struggled with this for a couple of sessions. Now things are starting to improve. When you have to react really fast the Stiga Calibra LT is harder to handle than T05. So far I was not able to hit any "lucky" shots. You really have to be prepared for every shot and attack it with vigor! Conclusion: Wonderful product

Rubber for expert, great for allround attack players. You can't make a mistake, if you can do this you can get what you want!

I started playing in 1970. I have used a lot of table tennis equipment since then. I am currently rated about 1600 USATT. This is by far the most technical inverted rubber I ever used. The throw angle is the lowest. The rubber is very fast. When you combine very low throw with great speed and a long trajectory you get a lot of balls going off the end of the table. That is true for players whose technique is not strong. For me personally, I have adjusted my technique and am very happy with this rubber. I am not good enough to get 100% of what the rubber offers. At best I am getting about 30 - 45%, but I am happy with that. Stiga took fast attack rubbers, put them together with very spinny rubbers and control rubbers and created a rubber that in the hands of a skilled technically proficient players can be all of the other rubbers combined in one. This rubber has so many gears and surreal control at any speed. The long trajectory is disturbing to other players. Spin depends entirely on the player. Stroke the ball correctly and there is very heavy spin, or change your stroke and watch the ball catapult with little to no spin. I love this rubber. It is light (45 grams at maximum thickness) I use it on my forehand with Barwell Fleet blade and T64 2.1 on the backhand. Well done Stiga!

This is a good rubber, but it lasted for two weeks, with play 5 days a week 2 hours a day. Also not so spinny, but easy to play.
