Reviews of RITC 804 Anti-Spin Rubber (16)
Quite grippy for an anti and strangely enough creates more difficulties for the opponents than many others famous anti.It plays like an old inverted. Put it on the fast carbon blade and you will have many gears. Cheap and strange rubber, so it deserves a try.
An interesting anti - this is my first anti. Some more experienced pimple/anti players quite like it, and it certainly creates some problems for many players, however a few players cope with it fine. One player in particular handles it without thinking, and he can't handle pips at all. IMO, definitely fine for a first anti, and for $10, it's worth a try.
Another positive review of a questionable product. I gave it a thumbs up as HnR above but that was just opening up the package. What grabbed my attention was the residue or film of powder which gives it a slippery feel...however when used a few times it lost the slippery feel and tacked up a little to the point where it appeared like ordinary inverted used or dead rubber.Now I can fully support the reviews that describe it as such. May I add I am refering to black 1.5 with white sponge.
Incontrast I am also testing out a red sheet. Initially, my feelings were the complete opposite...the red felt like a new sheet of tack chop or flextra, not identical but similar in texture...touch it and it feels soft and grippy, almost sticky. However after breaking in the red 1.5, the surface changed to a harder texture...almost like the base sheet of dr.evil???I'm still working it in but it's kind of cool to look at, shade of pink almost and kind of like a plasic...but the grippines is reduced but the softness has now turned into hardness...I'm going to add more to this later as this red sheet is really interesting...
Back to the black sheet, it feels soft, after a couple of months of use, and the slippery feeling has returned although it does not feel as slippery as my old sheet of dh rubber on my premade from 10 years ago...left it in my car on a sunny day and it melted...i have never used super anti or any real anti before so I am comparing the 804 with this nuked inverted and it is definitely not as slick...still has tack but it is on the low side...red is much more slippery.
...overall a good low spin fh rubber to match my lp on the bh side...it did not bottom out as i blocked everything that my opponent blasted at me, even jumping up into his shots...
Not only can I use it to quick loop or serve with spin or backspin chop, its block sucks out the speed and sends back a no spin wobbler! It's like the logo on the cover! Magic:)
I agree with Glenn's review and can see why this called half anti.
I personally was very disappointed with this rubber. When you purchase an anti spin, you'd expect something very slick and has little to no reaction to spin. This is not the case with this rubber at all.
I have a 10 year old Mark V rubber on one of my old bats. Honestly the grip on this 804 anti spin is not that far less than my old, old Mark V. Take a not very grippy old inverted rubber, never clean it and boom you'll have this rubber. :)
Simply not what you'd expect from an anti spin.
can hit and block. Chop is terrible. Good for receiving spinny serve and to setup an attack for your inverted rubber
I initially tried this rubber as the BH of my Dawei Genote Quattro S (ES). Did it help me return those spiny serves I have dificulty returning? Not if I was to rely on just the rubber alone. It did make it easier after I learned the proper techniques. But as someone else's review said, there's not much more you can expect from this.
Eventually I learned how to loop and when playing with my brother he ended up having difficulty returning my "fancy spins" and serves. I also ended up putting two of these rubbers both 1.5 on a Stiga premade paddle that I stripped the old worn out rubber out of, and this helped my brother somehow. It took him a while to figure out how to hit back so if you expect this rubber to do the work for you in returning those "spins" perhaps you might be better off saving the $$ for a better rubber later on after you've improved your game. This will not be the "silver bullet" for those spins.
One thing I did notice with the Stiga blade combo with this is that everytime my brother blocks and I expect the ball to go longer past the edge of the table no matter how much topspin I give, it doesn't. Often I have to hit the ball back from top of the table. Again I'm not sure if the rubber has had a strong part to play for that.
Love it or hate it?
LOVE IT for cheapness!
Ball slides over sheet, no grip, for sure no tack! (never used other brands so if this is .5 anti than is full anti like frictionless??????)
Med soft hrs white sponge standard 1.5.
I am ready for the day ittf bands pips!
Great Buy for me!
I have been looking for a replacement for frictionless long pip and have tried most of them I like to block and counter hit 804 is first class at this you have toal control with placement and a lp block style will work with little or no adjustment you will not win free points due to the affect but I havent found a lp that dose since the ban .804 keeps you in the point and allows you to set up an attack the advantage is you can counter hit with this realy easly juust move the bat forward against top spin and you will make a good return you can play spin strokes with it but generate little spin which confuses some opponents I find I am in controle of the point and not just looking for an error off the lp I have it on a off blade and am well pleased with it
This rubber is not actually anti-spin, its far from being anti-spin! Its more like a normal rubber but less tacky. If you use it as anti spin (like its suppose to be) then you'll achieve nothing but ball getting killed all the time. But others might like it but for me who has been using anti for long time...dont like it at all.
I just want to let potential buyers know that this rubber is widely known as "half anti" in China.
Because its "half anti", it actually does not excel at being anti or normal inverted rubbers. I personally won't recommend this - you either go anti or inverted.. why half?
Well, someone might like it though..
This is the first anti-spin rubber I have ever used, so I may have to revise this review if I try others.
This is a really neat (and really cheap) rubber. I normally use more standard rubbers (Sriver and Mark V), but this rubber was an easy switch. It chops and blocks really well, and over-the-table quick attack is pretty awesome, too. If you try really hard, you can get some spin on this, but normally it will be a no-spin shot or simply reverse your opponent's spin. I used this rubber with a 0.6mm Japanese sponge, which worked pretty well except for the expected deficiency in power that I never quite fully adjusted to. Objectively speaking, this rubber I think would be a good one for people to transition to anti rubbers.
You really have to know what you want in an anti-spin rubber. This anti has more grip than others, which to most anti players is a bad thing. It's more controlled if you want to attack with it, but won't be as spin-reversing when blocking loops. You can actually generate decent spin with this on serves and such.
