Extremely lightweight rubber ... one of the lightest !
I am using for FH Black max on Balsa blade for 6 months.
Excellent speed , spin and control from close to the table or mid or farther away.
Great for top-spin loop, flat smash and block push players.
Due to the lower throw-angle more effort for flipping required.
Always combining medium-soft , medium-hard blade with soft rubbers is recommended. This rubber is probably not going to work on extremely fast / hard stiff blades.
Take good care to not bang on edge or side of table, rubber is very soft and prone to breaking. You can getaway with grazing which is a testament to this rubber's durability.
Accurate a fault, lower bounce at opponent side. Perfect weapon!

A very controlled rubber, quite insensitive to incoming spin. Helped me improve my blocks and return of spin-loaded serves. Has good spin of its own which helps with the serves and topspins/loops. However. a little on the slower side compared to the tenergys and x1 turbo platin. Overall, a good rubber for backhand.

This rubber is of average speed and spin, but the paddle speed is increased if the rubber is placed on a fast blade. The topsheet is soft and I like how the ball easily sinks into the topsheet. If you want to play players above 1600 you must put it on a fast carbon blade. By fast I mean 96 to 99 out of a 100. Topspin is good but blocks are very good and the ball keeps low. Underspin pushes are very good and controllable. Once you get used to this rubber, it's good. I like this rubber and will recommend it to any allround player, however players above 2000 may need a faster rubber. This rubber has a very linear response and that's great, it's far more linear than tensors, so control is very good. Looping is good. Back hand flicks is good and easy. Serves are spiny. Update 3 weeks later, the topsheet has become less flexible
and therefore has become faster and blocking is less easy, but I still like this rubber, it is so linear. Some dwell time is lost. I always use a rubber cleaner after playing to bring back the spin lost beacause of dust and sweat. Update, after 3 months, the rubber has lost some of it's grip in the middle of the sheet. The rubber is now firmer than before. I put away this rubber for 3 weeks, then i played with it, and it's topsheet returned to being soft.. I love this rubber. Great on forehand and backhand. This rubber is light weight.

Exelent rubber for topspin attack (topspin against topspin, topspin against backspin). I Play on FH max on Stiga OCC one year. Block, chop near the table also are very good, rubber not much sencetive to incoming spin. Update after 4 months: very durable, after one year rubber in very good condition, spin and speed ok. I replaced rubber on 5 ply all wood limba blade off. It is better than on Stiga OC carbon. Excellent feel, spin, more dwell time. I think for no professional players all wood OFF blade is a better choise for this rubber, than carbon blades.
