Reviews of the Tibhar Legend Destroyer

Review bartek4443 said this on May 14, 2009:

I just got this rubber today, it is a Chinese topsheet with a Japanese sponge. i took off my Nimbuses and pasted these on to my super fast Galaxy T-2 carbon. I did not expect it to be this good; it is much spinnier than the Nimbus and it has a lot more control. I usually look at the control and am like ya bullsh** whatever, but this one is amazing. I lost a considerable amount of speed compared to my nimbus but i gained a lot more consistency. My backhand loop goes in all the time and my forehand loop has uncontrollable topspin. My playing partner made like two balls in then it either hit the net or flew past the table because he could not control it like my Nimbus. A hard but very loud sponge is what I like but some people don't like hard sponges so ya, heads up. My serves are much spinnier now like everything else. If you play with tensor rubber and switch to this you will be amazed at how consistent you will become. Very light, very tacky, very spinny, not fast, lot of control, many gears, high throw angle.

This is a good rubber. The top sheet is very nice quality and tacky, and the sponge is firm. Out of the packet this rubber looks good like any top quality rubber.

It was a bit firm for me so i put about 3 layers of speed glue onto the sponge and let it soften up a bit using the glass plate method. I didn't leave it overnight though, just for a few hours and then applied another layer of glue and let it stand overnight. The next day i re-attached the rubber to my blade it played perfectly ever since. The sponge was just the way i like it. Note that i only applied speed glue to soften the sponge, so i can't comment on how the rubber plays glued up as such.

Overall it's a good rubber, good speed and spin, both before and after i glued it, the only difference was that the sponge was a bit softer after i glued it.

medium hard sponge with ultra sticky surface which grabs the ball like you wouldnt believe, making returning serves , heavy chopping and blocking a breeze, but also has enough pace to create good attacking strategies! A real demon grippy rubber !

So far I've tended to use soft tensors like Andro Plasma 38, Donic Vario Big Slam, and Xiom Yanus DF. My coach was skeptical when I turned up one day with the Legend Destroyer, after the reviews here had convinced me to give it a try.
We were both very pleasantly surprised: great control, strong spin, and good speed, a keeper for my forehand. Although objectively it's a pretty hard rubber/sponge combination, it feels as if it's catching hold of the ball like a soft tensor.
Two caveats: 1. It's really heavy. Just changing my forehand to this seemed to make my racket twice as heavy. 2. It's not available in Japan, so I had to import it. Not sure whether that's just because it's not popular in Japan, or if Tibhar don't make it any more?

I have this on a Y-2 Carbon Yinhe blade.2.2mm red FH & 1.8mm black BH.
The blade is hard with no flex and thus the rubbers are not suited to this blade.
The rubbers lost there tacky after around 6 hours of play/training wut the speed and spin are still there.
Good from any distance, but I will be switching blades for this rubber to see what the difference would be.
Great for loop drives and fast topspin driving, thumbs up from me nice rubber. The only Tibhar rubber I have used so far.

Review hiap_shun19 said this on August 12, 2011:

it's good for backhand. Great control. So spinny
Review Alex said this on December 23, 2011:

This rubber was awesome for the price, a really great deal. I make my own bats and i chose to dress my first oak model in these rubbers. The hard surface of the blade combined with the sponge on this rubber made for a VERY fast paddle! The spin and control are good, and the weight is just right. Well build rubbers that make a nice loud *snap* to scare your opponents.
