I bought this rubber and put it on a 5 ply wooden paddle just for test and I havent stopped using it. I read all the reviews from others and just wondered if it was just that good as many have said ok let me say I bought red 2.0 for my forehand and anti power black yasaki 1.5 for my back hand and this is unbeatable tandem for who I play with at my ping pong club. Im not trying to sell this to you but the control and spin and when I need the speed is everything I need. I just want too try this now I cant stop using it. If you need contro speed and great popping spin try it yourself. I love it!
Its a very good rubber, not very tacky but can generate a lot of spin and speed. Control is just good and I think it fits better in forehand of hard blades, had some problems using in my backhand. Blocking is also easy with this rubber. I recomend it for players tha like to generate spin with an active blocking game, not so good for smashes.
I am using this in 2.0 red on my backhand. NEGATIVES//This rubber was and still is grossly overrated on spin. It is a spinny rubber compared to a large portion of rubbers that is out there, but the topsheet is not superbly grippy. Hence this is NOT a rubber for brush loops. The ball will simply slip and fall down. You need to engage the sponge to generate decent spin. It is very challenging to lift moderate to heavy backspin. even off the table that's very straining. You really have to rip through with your whole arm while then you have to make sure the ball doesn't fly off the end of the table. The lowish medium throw does its part in that equation. If I do the same strokes with my Hurricane 3 NEO, the ball just shoots off vertically into the roof. This rubber has crippled my game in the sense of opening backspin and my opponents frequently lock me down in my backhand.
POSITIVES//This rubber has outstanding control. It's difficult to stress enough the feeling of safety this rubber grants you. It is also fairly unreceptive to incoming spin. The medium (maybe even medium to low) throw angle just brings the ball back onto the other side of the table with ease.
Blocking: Passive blocking is great even against heavy rotation topspins that come in crushing on your side of the table, you just have to close the bat angle a little bit and this rubber provides very flat and annoying blocks. Active blocking is equally great.
Driving/Smashing: Extremely reliable, feels very linear. Nothing funny ever happens. Just hold the bat at the right angle and swing away. Of course it lacks speed, but you know, you can always just swing a little harder. When drive-looping you also develop some decent spin, because you're engaging the sponge more.
The catapult is not strong, but it is easy to activate even with your backhand. Due to the softness of the composition of the P2, you don't have to hit hard to get some potential out of this rubber.
Upgraded P3. A little firmer. Easier to create some spin variation while still having good consistency.
Very good rubber with high spin and speed. Great choice for offensive players.
This rubber is absolute magic. Great active and passive blocks, close and middle distance topspin and looping is absolutely fantastic. Godly spin on FH loops. Using the red at 2.0 with yasaka sweden extra (al wood 5 ply all+) and absolutely reccommend this rubber over other tensors or built in speed glue effect rubbers. Chops are achievable with good technique but to me it is more suited to a spin based offensive allround technique. Glue it to a fast stiff blade like BTY TB ALC and it will absolutely smash, maxing out and giving you great feel and beautiful sound. Great quality, beautiful blue porous sponge, after 70+ hours of play it is still grippy as new. P2 Will certainly let you play the top of your game if you play allround to allround offensive at any thickness depending on your average distance to the table and your ability to produce counter-topspins (thickness below 2mm will not let you counter from a distance as it does not allow enough dwell).
I tested the rubber hearing the good reviews about it but this is definitely not the rubber for you if you like to play away from the table. Although there is a lot of spin I had trouble hitting consistent loop drives far away and so did my partner when I let him try my paddle. The tensors of the rubber make the feeling nonlinear so at times if you were not paying attention on your counter loop the ball would unexpectedly fly farther than usual. If you wanted to look for a more linear version of this rubber I suggest going with Andro Rasant Grip rubber instead. Even though it also has tensors, It is a lot more control friendly and you will get the same amount of spin andspeed as Donic Acuda Blue P2.
