SRIVER With Outstanding Stability
Sriver FX combines the traditional Sriver rubber surface with a softer, more elastic sponge layer.
This combination allows the ball to sit on the rubber surface a little longer to generate more spin.

My impression for using this rubber for 9 months before changing to normal Sriver is moderate speed and very soft rubber. In my opinion, I feel FX version is too soft to have a good control on the ball, at least for my BH game. When opening the loop, you have to get much accurate adjustment than normal Sriver or the ball will go long off the table. I also feel that it is too springy for me to keep up the fast rallies to keep the ball low and aggressive. Maybe it is good for beginner who does not have a lot of power or for speed glue plays but otherwise stick with normal version of Sriver.
Just slapped it on a T-6 & so far not thrilled. Needs a faster blade. Toss it on my T-11+ & get back...subject to change.
This rubber was manufactured and designed for speed glue. Without it, it's just a slow control rubber. With speed glue it's a totally different rubber with super control and power.
Legend rubber in speed glue era.. Good on the hard blade, like Sardius or Gergely...
got this as my first custom rubber for a cheap, 5 ply JOOLA blade
Perfect for beginners:
not too fast
above average spin, similair to joola brave
speed similair to 5q sound but a bit slower
soft and consistent- perfect for beginners
fantastic blocking: control and accuracy and if taken early, often a counterspin like shot
pushing and chopping is great
lifting backspin isnt too difficult because rubber isnt too tack so backspin on ball doesnt sit on the rubber. however, the rubbers speed makes for a short trajectory on the shot
suprisingly good drives
ok spin on serve
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 5 years ago. I did only practice 2 hours a week.
Not very durable.
Most chinese rubbers lasts longer.
Used in max on Donic Persson Powerplay.
For many years my backhand black 1.7 mm perfect for learning topspin technique.Not very fast,but control at the highest level
I'm beginner, and i'm using this rubber on my backhand( primorac carbon blade). For me its a very good rubber with speed and control.
This was a rubber made for speed glue, which of course is now banned. It's spin and speed is just ok; this rubber is now for control. It is average at best for spinny serves. It's great for a beginner looking to develop their shots; I am using it to work on my backhand, which is much weaker than my forehand. It allows you to develop the correct technique without worrying about missing. It is light and soft and completely non-tacky. It plays well close to the table, further back it requires some effort.
That being said, in max thickness it can produce some pretty fast backhand flicks. Not as fast my Vega Europe, but still enough to win the point. It feels a little dead sometimes, but it gets the job done. Soon I'll be able to 'graduate' from my sriver fx once my technique is sorted. :)
honestly this rubber is really slow. It has amazing control. you can do all strokes with it easily.
I use it as my backhand (sponge 2.1 mm)
this blade is quite good for those who just starts to play table tennis. it has balanced speed, spin, and control. but i can say that the spin and control is better than the speed. compared to the price, i really recommend this for beginner and experienced player
This rubber is only for those that lack confidence to put the ball away. A good player (i.e. good footwork and power) would smach the crap out of the ball if one looped with this. I would recommend a thinner sriver or sriver el for more control over this rubber.
