Maybe this was good before i was born, but not a chance today. Worst rubber i have tried yet. Tried Mark V from Yasaka, because someone said it was they two that competed some with eachother. Mark V had much more spin feeling and it had actually hold the line to a certain level even today. When you see the manufactors numbers, you dont buy it:
Speed 10 / 15
Spin 8.0 / 15!)
I use the 1.9 on both sides of my Butterfly Petr Korbel FL.
Nice rubber for beginners. Not too fast, is really focused on control and suited me very well for my training.
If you are an intermediate/experienced player this might not fit well for you, since is too slow for a game.
Great control rubber. Paired with OFF control wood blade you cannot miss a shot. However, it can be slow for intermediate and advanced players. You can probably stick it on a carbon blade to offset. I think this a great rubber for beginner players.
Ratings for 1.9mm. Good pace and gears, but spin leaves a lot to be desired. Great for beginners since control is very high for learning. Rubber is light which can work well for kids.
Way,Way far from the capabilities of that times Tenergy, Im talking Yasaka Mark V here, with a Hans Ahlser blade, that is out now in 3 different version, and can ONLY
Its still a good rubber but in this price range i would say many other rubber plays better than sriver. Sriver is more to control suit for allround style player.

My first rubber, this rubber is good but not to return passive especially when counter backspin, the only best choice is use backhand or forehand topspin. If you use chop or push is so difficult to aim low and most of it will end with lob game. This is good choice for day 1 table tennis lesson, and still good choice when you need faster rubber just boost it . Along with mark v for me if you prefer european style / or hitter, sriver is best for it, but if you like chinese style / brush, i suggest you switch to mark v.
If you loose a lot of points in the competition with fast bouncy Tenergy rubbers, try Sriver and see what it can do for you. It's all about control. Speed and spin can be generate with what you put into it.
My first decent rubber. Used on BH 1.9mm.
I never really liked this rubber since I first glued it on my all wood Primorac.
Feels dead, no consistency on shots, not so much speed or spin and lacks control.
For classic rubbers I very much preffer Yasaka's Mark V - it really is much better in every aspect when compared with Sriver.
Also for such an old and outdated rubber the price is ridiculous. Stay away from this rubber even if you are a new player.

BH: Sriver 1.9 Red
As I use this rubber for my BH, coming from softer rubber perspective such as Solcion or Sriver FX, I say this rubber is a control monster! I can do opening loop pretty much any spin from opponent. While the speed is not fast enough to finish a good opponent outright, it gives so much control that you can place the ball almost anywhere on the table with reasonable pace. Unlike the soft rubbers which have high catapult feeling, this one is the most linear rubber I have ever used. After I have changed to this rubber for 2 months with almost everyday practicing, I feel that my BH controlled loop is improving to another level that I could beat high level opponent around USATT 1700ish level.
I am a developing player. I usually play intermediate players with an occasional advanced player. There is a good variety of players at my club. Used 2.1 mm sriver on FH and BH. This was my first custom rubber and I wanted something that had a lot of control. I can get good spin on serves with good control. Returning serves are overall pretty good. Going against more advanced players I found it more difficult to return serves but that is probably just my technique. Close to table hitting, this is a very good rubber especially with FH or BH drives. It has many gears to it but at a slow pace you have to put a lot of effort into it to get it over the net. When I drop a ball onto it, the rubber seems dead as the ball doesn't bounce much. This was an adjustment to my previous premade racket. I love using BH flicks against backspin and this rubber is decent at that. Sometimes it is hard to control it but it takes a lot of focus to get it right. FH flicks close to table are same way. I found the throw angle to be medium-low so this is probably the reason for this. Blocking is difficult but this is probably just my technique. Looping away from table is very tricky to stay consistent. This rubber is a beast close to table but away from table it is very hard to control. Overall I am satisfied with this rubber. I am looking to upgrade to something faster but I recommend this rubber to players who are looking for their first custom rubber.

Sponge is harder than Tenergy. Speed is linear so it feels slow, not bouncy like tensors, but if the ball is high enough it's easy to kill. Not enough spin.
Very good beginners rubber (someone who has just got started, is confident at rallying and wants to start looking at flicks and loops ect.) great control, but strong players will find it too slow
Great rubber for ALL with great control. Used it for BH but need to speed up. Good classic!
Equipped this for my back hand. Has good control, not as springy (not so much speed) but I was still able to generate fast attacks with some top-spin. Good for medium to short range. I used this mainly for short range.
I put this rubber, in max, on FH of Joola Viva blade and didn't really like it, as it seemed to lack the touch and control that I expected. So I replaced it and put it on blade from my buddy's Stiga Ignite premade bat, and it really came to life...to the point I regretted getting rid of it. Good rubber if properly matched, but not quite on part with its number 1 rival, Mark V.
Speed glue rubber... A legend rubber...
