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.
One of the best my backhand rubber in speed glue era... U can improve your strokes with this rubber... LEGEND rubber...
Great all around rubber. Perfect for an all around control game or beginner. To me it seems slightly slower than regular Sriver but with a bit more spin and bite to it.
Overall very happy with this rubber. I chose the 1.9mm, which I've been using for 2 mos. as my only rubber on my 1st jpen paddle. It's a definite improvement over the rubber on my old premade Stiga paddle--great spin and lots of control for a beginner. My only complaint is the rubber seems fragile/easier to damage than I had expected. Otherwise very happy with it.
After many good review for the legendary sriver, have to get my self one just to test how good it is. This rubber have above average spin. It is not a tensor rubber thus you need to generate all the speed and spin your self. As it is not too fast, you can generate shot with lot of spin. The ball will kick when it land to the other side of the table. Great for serve and serve receiving.
this was my first rubber i ever tried and its great for starting players who like to have a lot of control but still be able to spin
Not one person has said what makes this rubber different from all the others, its the unique ball curve when looping. You only have to look at the amount of reviews to see how popular this rubber is. Anyone who is starting out in table tennis and wanting to be an attacking player should start with this rubber in 1.9. When I used to glue up it was absolutely the best rubber ever made. 2.1 EL blocks, loops against a push, and counter very very well. My second choice would be Tenergy 05 in 1.9, more spin and speed but less control when counter looping.
Very good rubber the first 3 months.
good spin, speed and control.
Great for push and placements.
Great backhand shots.
Not too fast.
After 3 months it turns really badly.
The grip is totally gone. Makes the rubber too bouncy due to the great elasticity.
The ball flies over the table and into the net.
That was 6 years ago. I did only practice 2 hours a week.
Not very durable.
Most chinese rubbers lasts longer.
Used in 2.1 on Donic Persson Powerplay.
a very nice butterfly rubber that is good on backhand. I recommend this for defensive player if you ever use it on fore hand, but if you use it on backhand it can play as all around rubber... very nice!
I have used this only for BH, and it has served me well. Good for jabbing top spins and also very good for back hand loops. It is a bit slower when smashing, but that can be compensated with a fast blade. Overall I love this rubber on my BH!!
