One of the best rubber ever made, will compare it with T80 which I've been played for more than a year now. Plays like a boosted T80. Unlike T80, this rubber shows all its power even on flexible blades. T80 plays very well on stiff blades like Viscaria but feels dead on flexible blades like innerforce AL.
In fact, MX-P so much faster that IF AL + MX-P is still faster than Viscaria + T80.
The only MAJOR issue for me with MX-P is its weight. That rubber is heavy, I mean realy heavy, even Tenergies are far lighter.
But still if you are playing with ALC blade like Viscaria/TBS and seeks more power than non boosted Tenergies, you can boost your Tenergies of course.....but you can also go for MX-P. A boosted T80 with 2 layers is about the same weight as MX-P.
I'm training 18 hours per weeks, and a competition every 2 weeks. So concerning the durability compared to T80.
With T80, after 4 weeks I can already feel the lose of performances, but its quite brutal, the performance lose is huge and after 6 weeks the rubber is like not having "spring sponge" anymore, despite keeping a very good grip....the spped is no more. I change the rubber after 6 weeks maximum because its unlayable unless I boost the rubber. T05 and T64 are keeping there speed far better over time.
With MX-P, there is also a drop of performances after 4 weeks but it impacts only spin and not much speed. The drop of performances is more linear than T80. Change the rubber also after 6 weeks maxium but a 6 weeks MX-P is still playable while a T80 is realy inert.
If you love to engage your body on power top spins, this rubber (outside of boosted rubbers) is the more powerfull you can get.

I read somebody else describe it as a hybrid of a Chinese and a jap/Euro rubber, and I agree. It's the best really fast rubber I've used for service. It's easy to keep the ball low, short, and spinny. Short game is really good.
Once you start picking up the racket speed though, the sponge starts to compress and the speed is explosive. Here, the control isnt as good so you'll need to be really precise with your strokes.
Loops are really fast, low and have heavy spin. Even against moderate backspin, I had to close my racket angle almost as if I was looping a dead ball. My 3rd ball attacks were insanely fast, but again, I felt like i needed to be very precise or I'd miss long. Counterlooping was tricky for me as well, unless I backed off from the table considerably.
Smashing, hitting and blocking were also quite good.
I recommend this to highly skilled and very agressive players, however if you like high, slow opening topspins, or prefer to loop/counterloop from close range you may not like it.

The best T05 alternative for me.
A little faster, maybe a little controled and cheaper. Nice FH Rubber.
Everything works well.

This is a hard and fast rubber with a grippy topsheet. I am coming from xiom vega europe. This rubber is faster but much less predictable. This is my first day with it and i didn't do well. I will have to try to understand its weird reaction. This rubber is very heavy, more heavy than I expected. I will post more later. Update this is my second day of playing with this rubber. I am playing against a robot and i am learning different angles and stroke force. I still find the rubber is hard to control and is unpredictable. Third day of playing with this rubber, and the rubber is just difficult to understand as the plastic ball bounces of the rubber at weird angles. The old celluloid ball plays better with this rubber. Also, I notice that the rubber has lost a significant amount of spin. I lost my money on this one. I will remove this rubber and go back to xiom vega europe which is very predictable and controllable. At this point I do not even want to take a chance on another tibhar model rubber.

The MX-P feels softer to the touch than Xiom’s Omega V Tour and more similar to the Euro version or Nittaku’s Fastarc G-1. It weighs 49 grams when cut to my 157 x 150 mm test blade, which is within one gram of the reference rubbers mentioned above. FH drives feel nothing short of marvelous with this rubber. The contact is crisp and produces a clicking sound that instills much confidence. The catapult is quite pronounced, which makes it tempting to take 1-2 steps away from the table and start hammering FH drives and flat hits with high speed.
