|The 6030l used to be a great blade, but they've switched the center to balsa or something that makes it too stiff and fast for my tastes. I prefer the bomb as similar to the older formula.|
The zebra is a nice blade but I have trouble controling it from any more than a step back. If you play close to the table it's nice. I noticed a lot of pips users seem to like it.
Transcend is actually closest to the mrs of any of the pre-existing sponges actually made by 729. The green one under higher and faster is similar to the newest soft batches of cream. The 729-3 is on a slightly firmer more like the older batches of mrs but faster and better control both.
Cream is on a pretty hard transcend, and SP (wangnan) is on a very hard 46deg traditional chinese feeling but very fast sponge. That's like a serve and attack rubber.
