Reviews of JOOLA Energy X-Tra (28)
It is a good rubber for a beginner stage, Its soft sponge combined with an all wood allround blade allows the beginners to have a good dwell time, good feeling and good control on their shoots. The spin this rubber generates is also really good so allows the beginners to learn every kind of shoots where spin is needed as top-spins, serves, chops, etc. quickly, for intermediate players definitebly there're so many better options than this.
Is on my Cornilleau Gatien crown All+.Amazing rubber,great spin+good speed.Throw is high.
Update-amazing rubber...I dont know why the ratings here so average.I am now using it on hinoki blade....amazing feel+spin+quite fast.
As an all-round rubber, probably the best I have come across. I've played with Energy X-Tra for three seasons now on various blades and found it to be reliable on all. Produces heavy spin, is not overly quick and has decent control too. I've been using it on both my FH and BH and has brought my backhand on massively, it's very 'whippy' and rewards you for putting the effort in with spin.
From personal experience, I've found it performs best on an all-wood blade. Playing with it on Joola Eagle Fast, which is balsa, it doesn't quite have the same soft feel and control as it does on an all-wood.
But for any all-rounder or controlled attacker, I'd thoroughly recommend. It has that little extra zip that can just take shots to the next level and doesn't force you to sacrifice it for control.
Strong rubber, good, but depending on what kind of blade you put them on. for me good on fast blades playing mid distance or away from the table. Price with quantity discount is ok.
I love this rubber. When a child asks me "I want something faster than vari spin", I advise him to buy this. It's very forgiving, and no other tensor has such a huge control. Perfect rubber to start with tensor and learn table tennis. Good for loop AND flat hit, so suitable for many game. Of course it's not as effective as "premium" rubbers (speed and spin).
I love it for his great durability too
Nice and forgiving, and good control when receiving oncoming spin, particularly for services. However, lacks spin and bite for services and pushes compared to other new generation rubbers. Sounds like a rubber from the speed glue era, but without the spin. Still love it though, and good if you aren't playing well
Rubber is very good on the forehand of an intermediate player, and maybe good on the backhand if you have nice technique. Rubber has quite a high throw (quite bouncy) and is easily fast enough to finish a point. It's spin is one of the best rubbers I've ever had for the category. It's up there with andro rasant grip. Looping and driving is easy. Flicks are great and drop shots are good too. Backspin can easily be imparted on pushes and the rubber is controlled enough to block. A great rubber for people looking to buy their first custom bat as it is forgiving and easy to use.
i wonder why does it say that it is not a tensor but in the package in the pic does
its perfect for the BH for me
Love energy xtra, you can play almost any style with it, you can play upto the table or at distance and the feeling is superb! switched to this from sriver a few years back and the only difference is it s faster and spinnier
I love it...i try tenergy 64 on my fh insted of Xtra and i didnt notice that the tenergy has more speed...
however I put back Xtra becouse ,Xtra is better choice for me.
This rubber is a very good BH rubber!!!
I found it horrible on my FH because it kept on going too far or in the net.
I would recommend this rubber for your BH but not for your FH!!!
Just started playing with this rubber. Overall impressions are good. Its like less a bit of everything of Sriver G3. Seams to wear out really quick. Same age other rubber and this one, and x-tra shows some traces where the boll hits the most. Its a great rubber for a price, but if it is durable as it seams, its value is considerable. Better add 10euros and buy yourself G3 or something like it.
If you want to empty your wallet, you must play this rubber, because you have to replace it a couple of times a year!
The speed, the feeling and the sound are great, but it lacks spin in the short play above the table. All my serves where dead, no effect at all.
Absolutely no value for money.
Have only played with this a couple of weeks but like it very much. I usually play with soft rubbers like Desto F3, but I wanted something with just a little more power. I think the Joola rubbers I've played with overall are high quality, but the Express X-tra soft doesn't last as long as I'd like, only a couple months. Hopefully this will last a little longer, but overall am very satisfied with this. Good throw angle, not too hard, and good spin.
I start with cons:
The only noticeable drawback is the lifetime. No more than 2 months for me :(. I use to spin a lot on fh and bh.
After 2 months the rubber is passably used, the adherence lot reduced. The sponge has no more accelerated effect. So, no more the ".glue sound"..
- A lot of gears. high confidence in blocking.
- Good adherence
- Good speed, even on an allround blade
- Cheap price (in France). The cheapest price (from far) of all energy rubber (25â.¬.).
- EXCELLENT ratio: Power, adherence, control
- Allow to do bounce looping style easely. It's a plus against defense play.
I continue with these rubbers for another couple of month, however next week I'll switch for an offensive blade.
I've tried it a little and this rubber performs better on offensive blades.
As I miss the Mark V rubber, I'll give a try this summer to Mark V HPS. but the price is close to double (46â.¬.)!
Note: It reminds me Donic Vario GPS...in a better way (more control, more elastic, more punch, more adherence (when new))!

Great rubber for controlled looping and for playing away from the table. It is great on a hard blade, serves are relitively easy to keep short, and long and fast serves are also great with this rubber. Easy to use and fantastic if you are looking for more control. Don't underrate the 1.8mm thickness as it has got great control as well as lots of speed and spin.
Great rubber,softness:soft to medium,medium to fast speed,good spin,very good in short game and has a lot of control,great for the backhand looping.
Great rubber for controlled looping. Easy to serve short spinny serves and long fast serves. Has lots of control as well. Very good in the short game. It is great on a harder blade. It is very soft as well so it is easy to use.
