Used it for circa 4 years (with some pauses) without changing it and it still felt like it was just slightly used. I bought the rubber again but after my play improved the rubber started to feel a little bit slow. Control is perfect, it goes where you want it to go. Spin is a bit lackluster but fairly managable. There are a lot of better rubbers for less money than this but I would definitely recommend it to an amateur-intermediate player in all aspects.
Good control rubber, but still too slow. I think it is ideal for backhand if boosted.
I played this rubber on my backhand when I was just starting out. I am pretty sure this rubber is meant to be boosted, but those days are gone now. It has good control, but is just much too slow without any additional tuning. If you aren't planning to tune this rubber yourself, just get a modern tensor rubber (tenergy, omega, acuda, mx, etc.) It is still a good rubber for beginners, but if you are going to invest in a new setup for yourself, you might as well get something better.
