Reviews of GEWO Hype XT Pro 40.0 (4)
Through a test in a table tennis block, I became aware of this rubber !
After playing this rubber with 1.9 mm sponge thickness at a retailer, I bought it with 1.7 mm !!! ( - ... because 1,9 mm was too fast on my DHS Ma Long 5 replica.)
In addition, I had considered this rubber, because it should have a very low weight, which unfortunately should not be confirmed !!!
It ultimately weighed 59 g uncut and 44 g cutted on my blade with 160 x 152 mm. (- Okay :-/ ... thats light, but not very light.)
Unfortunately, my blade does not harmonize with the rubber in 1.7 mm thickness. The feeling was ultimately too direct and not dynamic enough.
I also tested this rubber on various other blades and as softer the blade, the feeling where better !!!
- For a rubber with 40 sponge, this rubber is quite exceptional.
But in the end, I can say that this rubber is really a very good rubber, which makes combined with the right blade, a lot of fun !!!
Here for you the link for the blog in which this rubber has been tested and in my opinion was rated absolutely truthful.
A controllable rubber, Played on a Butterfly Kreanga Carbon ULC, The trajectory was pretty flat. The serves are good as well as Topspin and block. I did not manage to give it a good backspin chop in that combination, but nevertheless the rubber
can unfold its full potential on a softer blade. All in all, a good racket for spin but a bit too offensive for my style of play.
Have given up on Evolution FX-P/FX-S on my forehand (!) for this rubber. I have the 1.9mm sponge. It is very much comparable to Evolution FX-P, the only difference is that it is much easier to play with and even more shots go where they are supposed to go: On the table. Surprisingly, for a soft rubber, serves are very spinny, blocking is good and opening loops are as good as or only slightly worse than with the FX-P and almost as good as Vega Japan. I am so fascinated by this rubber that I am currently working out if it can replace my Tenergy 25fx on the backhand as well, simply because Hype XT Pro is cheaper. Mine cost 39. The only downside of this rubber might be that you lose power the further you go away from the table. It is still a soft rubber after all. Still very highly recommended. P.S.: Don't put away the rubber after the first training session. It mutates into something a little more powerful after one week.
