Got it in 1.9 on infinity vps 5. its a speed rubber with great control, and spin is surprising ok even though no tack. the faster you play, the better the rubber is. The accuracy is a amazing on smashes. == Serves - great / returns - great / loops - ok / blocks - very good / flick - very good / smash - great. It took me awhile to get a feel for it, but once i did my game started to dramatically improve. The great control of the super fast rubber is the best I've played with so far. Can`t go back now super durable, spin does not fade at all. great rubber to play serious pong.

The topsheet looks like an antispin tosheet by it does provide monstruous spin........I have never seen such an incredible topsheet. Its far less sensitive to incomming spin than any other off+ backside but still the topsheet provides tons of spin on serves, top spins, pushes.......
I commend Calibra Tour M on your strong side (forehand usually) in combination with a flexible blade (i use Bty Innerforce AL), you need a blade with good flex, high throw and high dwell time to fully enjoy Calibra tour M amazing feeling and potential. I tried Tour M and Tour H with harder and stiffer blades like Joola Rossi Emotion, Walder Legend Carbon, Mizutani Jun ZLC, none is a good combination, dwell time is ultra low, throw angle ultra low, no feeling at all.
Tour M 1.7mm is faster and more powerfull than my previous FH rubber T80 1.9mm on my IF AL, throw is lower, trajectory longer.
BTW i would gladly appreciate if someone tested Calibra Tour topsheet with the Polyalls ? Does this special topsheet still "work" with Polyballs ? I wonder......
edit : after playing with intensively for about 2 weeks, I can say that the rubber is just playing better and better. still like new, and when I say this I mean REALLY like a brand new. First rubber with "speed glue effect" to be still ok after 2 weeks of my tranning.

I've been using this rubber on my Forehand for almost a year. It's absolutely sublime. You can do any shot from straight smashes to short pushes to spinny loops from mid distance to the table. I play roughly 5 hours a week and the rubber is still in pretty good shape; it could last another couple of months I think. This rubber really shines on aggressive attacks and short play. It handles spin really well and can produce a lot of spin itself. I can win a lot of points from consistency and placement. Highly recommended for intermediate players as it requires your own strength in striking the ball.

Very good rubber for the upcoming intermediate who likes to play strong, spinny topspins close and away from the table. Spin is very good, touch play is easy to master and the rubber is versatile. I got it in 1.9mm and it is quite fast, faster than joola energy xtra. Didn't take long to get used to, and I was soon placing topspins at all angles with ease. Service is easy and you can counter topspins if you have a loose grip on your blade. Not tacky at all so your opponent's spin doesn't bite into it like you would expect. Overall a great all round rubber that's great for offensive looping.

I have it in 1.9mm on a stiga offensive classic carbon.
A very balanced rubber. Very fast, good spin, very good control. After a month or so the spin drops slightly, but it's still very spinny.
I play about 7 hours a week.
