Spin is the most important element of modern table tennis. Not only the strength of spin but also the stability and secure feel have been desired by many players. VEGA series is the realization of the dream. VEGA is the mixture of two new technologies - HYPER ELASTO and CARBO SPONGE. Both of them are based on TENSOR technology which gives rubber the effect of built-in tension. HYPER ELASTO provides extreme spin and stability, and black colored CARBO SPONGE provides innovative efficiency of energy. Further, the feel of VEGA is exciting but comfortable. Its ease of use will help players play “winning” table tennis. Now four variations are available. All of them provide exceptional spin capability. VEGA PRO is for extreme spin, softer VEGA ASIA is for more speed, VEGA EUROPE is softer with more control, and finally, the softest VEGA ELITE is for extreme control.

Submit a short review about Xiom Vega Pro.
Vega Pro is a high quality tensor with higher throw angle and excellent spin. It is not too bouncy close to the table. It has a great looping potential with strong ball dip.
I am a player who hits ball extremely hard with massive top spin and for me it was not easy to bottom out Vega Pro. I don't think many will menage to bottom it out so don't worry about high end gear unless you hard loop-drive from more then 6 meters from the table (kinda silly but hey... ).
One problem i had with it is when i try to push (long) with some side spin. It can pop up the ball. With good technique i don't think one should be to concerned about this issue. It is mainly my lack of skill near the table.
Blocking is great too. Most of the time you get even rewarded with some additional spin out of passive block (out of position).
Looping-driving (hard exchange) is the best!! Very easy to override side-spin and to counter with your own side-top spin. On pure top spin game you don't have to worry about ball slipping of your rubber at all (high grip). It sure does click a lot at high speed, so some may like that some may not.
Rubber has great durability. Mine died in about a month (please don't read this wrong i kill most of the rubber in less then that).
Overall very good product in my opinion. Great price 35$ to 45$. Last a long time. Personally i would recommend it as a FH rubber. Maybe not for an absolute beginner but anything higher should find this product from Xiom great.
Hope this helps, and enjoy playing felaz :)))
Exellent for my backhand. It just feels effortless to play with it.
I love this rubber. Good speed/spin and good control for blocking and for enough controlled attack away and near on the table. I have it in FH and Europe Version in BH.
no disrespect to the above reviewer, but i have been useing this rubber for 18moths and change every 4 month never had a issue with shrinkage. most spring sponge are hard to stick on, i found from my expreience never stretch or bend much when placing top sheet on blade. stretching causes sponge to shrink back later when glues dry up, this can be noticed in 48hrs, hope it helps. any this rubber is the complete rubber for me. does everything especially loops. excellent throw. very durable and does not loose much performance even after 4 months, i cant tell the difffernce. not for beginners. 10/10
Out of the packet impressions:
-Well made and trustworthy quality
-Plenty of grip from the topsheet!
- Med-hard sponge
-Densely arranged, thinner pips
Before diving into this reveiw, I should tell you I was just moving off Chinese rubbers after needing more speed for over the table drives and counterloops, that the tacky type of rubbers just couldn't give. But I still wanted something that would play a versatile game with some feel.
Driving seemed no problem for this rubber and I was able to either keep them nice and short or bury it into the back of the court at will. a good start. The control seemed great, but not the kind a lower level player would require. you have to be there and commit. I also appreciated the low throw over the net, even when going for less topspin, something that all more advanced players require. The short game took some small adjustments but was no problem, the hard sponge was a real complement to this as it allowed me to just touch the ball and give a push with good spin and keep it short, however if a flick was called for it could do that also. However you have to make sure your footwork is there and concentrate on what your doing or it will pop up or the grippy topsheet will throw the ball with the spin. There Is a reason this rubber is called Vega PRO.
Aggresive loops where no problem! Vega pro provided great speed with a lovely low throw, a challenge for most opponents to return. When ripping the ball you get some fantastic amounts of spin, still with good control, like it has a longer dwell time, but it doesn't. Odd but a good characteristic. Also, loops off backspin took some adjusting, but again no big problem. Just had to make sure I was using the right technique and my footwork and body were there.
Smashing was fun with this, like alot of tensors. The ball went fast and I felt like I was loading a ton of power behind it.
Serves where also easy and controllable with the Vega. Proficient spin and angles to work with this, thanks to the sponge.
But always when using this rubber you HAVE to use good technique. if you don't try and expect the rubber to do it all for you then the ball won't go anywhere, and if you try to slap the ball at every opportunity then it will embrace the opposing wall and leave a crater. Like I said, they didn't call it Vega PRO just because it sounds cool.
On the side this rubber seems durable enough to last about half a season or just over. Great for someone not looking to be changing rubber all the time, like myself.
Overall, I can safely say I like this rubber and I shall stay with it for a while I think. I would recommend this to people with an aggressive minded game but aren't quite all out loopers or drivers and want to mix it up . But you MUST be confident in your strokes and commit with good technique.
A great rubber for a fair price.
