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).

I like the Calibra series and this one is a little harder then Calibra sound. I say medium hard. It has a nice feel and I like it very much against under spin when the tacky surface makes it easy to get the ball over the net. Good in serve and returns.
It's a rubber for offensive players who likes rubber with control.

I use this rubbers on my Intensity Carbon on both my forehand and backhand and it’s a combination that works super for me. What I like the most about Calibra LT is the unique touch and the feel and control. It is not the best rubber when it comes to spin but for my game style it works perfect.
Works good both close to the table and from mid distance, I feel very same when blocking with these rubbers and they are easy to control in short balls. The rubbers is durable and they don’t cost a fortune like some of the other pro rubbers on the market. The best rubbers from Stiga!

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!
