Designed for the post tuner and speed glue era, this rubber has maximum friction and power right out of the package. Hybrid conic pip structure gives the top sheet more synergy with the sponge for a quicker response. Shadow is designed for spin and control. Ideal for players who want to win points with a balance of spin, speed and placement.
This s a soft rubber with fairly aggressive tack. Increased dwell time great to increase consistency of the loop without sacrificing heavy spin.

Submit a short review about Gambler Shadow.
Nice tackiness, good spin and control. But slow speed.
Its a nice rubber. But it didnt work too well on my Stiga Tube offensive. The rubber was much too slow.
Very good spin on serves.
Its a defensive rubber. Would work best with chopping and looping I think. Good for tactical play with spin variation.
Seems to have good endurance.
Plays very similar to a tacky 729/chinese rubber. The product description says it's made for the post speed glue era, which is misleading! It does not have any click at all. I believe outlaw and six shooter are the only tuned rubbers from gambler. Also the sponge is Not Soft, it's about a medium, about 38-40. Anyway back to the rubber, it's a mildly tacky rubber, that requires chinese strokes. Counter looping/driving is okay. Blocking and flat hit are not good. Pushing so so. Really bad for euro strokes/short strokes, or passive play. The only way to win with this rubber is to swing fast and hard at everything..
Some good aspects, it's really cheap! It's slow, so you have to use technique to generate power which could be good for a serious new player.
I bought 2 sheets of this for both my 8 and 11 year olds. I have been training them for almost 1 year now...so wanted something with decent spin/quality w/o too much money. Have to say this rubber was a pleasant surprise. Top sheet is good quality, and sponge is fairly soft.
The spin is very good, and the speed is not too much for beginners. Also this rubber is not too heavy. I would highly recommend this for beginner to mid-level players.
