Reviews of RITC Friendship Sky Wing (8)
Even if the existing approval no. is missing and the rubber is only offered in 2 mm, one is surprised to find such a flawless (slightly sticky) surface on a rubber in this price range. The light yellow sponge, which is specified by the manufacturer as 40 degrees, is also of good quality. The rubber can therefore be cut very easily without fraying
My selected, extra light rubber has a size of 166 x 165 mm and weighs 56 g. incl. protective film. It was 85 g in the original packaging and in the end, when cut to size on my offensive blade (with 156 x 150 mm), it weighs 41 g.
After playing this rubber many years ago, I remembered its very low weight, which is why I have now ordered it again. Unfortunately the rubber now weighs significantly more (between 3 and 5 g. Cut, ... then 41 g.) and I also remember, the spin level was significantly higher!
Conclusion: not very light anymore! Control and speed good, catapult acceptable and spin not even mediocre!
Playability -- surprisingly good for pushes and forehand chops.
I played with it for 2 months and it held up fine. The shiny surface dulled and the speed slowed, but spin seems to be fine. Must be the soft sponge, giving rubber somewhat of a hybrid mechanical grip. Control though, became a problem after 2 months. Long distance loops became inconsistent, often netting more due to uneven speed. But heck, still a deal.
