I've been really happy with this as someone who is just getting going with table tennis who needed something inexpensive to learn with. The rubber has really nice grip and gives you some good spin and responsive action using basic, solid technique. Would definitely recommend it for new players.
Got mine on Max Black on orange sponge and tested it on a ALL 5ply wooden blade. It's a faster rubber than i expected, both the sponge and top sheet are very hard. it's quite difficult to brush the ball to do a controlled topspin or BH flick if you're a beginner or recreational player. I was expecting it to be tacky so I could use it for BH chopping but it isn't at all. The rubber is heavy and the built quality is excellent, the sponge doesn't crumble and the topsheet doesn't crack around the edges or unglues from the sponge so it should last for a long time. I'm ok with the sponge hardness, but the hard unsticky topsheet is not suitable for my style. I recommend this rubber for beginners and intermediate players with an agressive style who play close to the table with hard flat hits on FH
Not a bad rubber, but I don't personally like it. As I am an upper beginner I have rather a small field of comparison. I can compare it only to my old premade bat and some other cheap rubbers. It has far more kick and better spin than my old premade bat, but it pales in comparison with other available rubbers. For my taste, they are just too soft and not spinny enough. It's good place to start, but I would recommend them only to players who are just starting their table tennis adventure. Compared to their European soft counterparts they seem to forgive fewer errors. During the first hour of training, I got more balls in the table with old and used Donic Quatro A'conda than with Super FX.

Put in on a flexible blade like Stiga allround classic and it is a really good rubber with very low Price. Godly rubber. Play it in forehand. Because you have so much control with THE Blade and rubber you can hit harder and harder and which gives high Speed and spin, just focus on technique.
Yes its cheap but unless you're a beginner I found this rubber of little quality. It's hard and bouncy which makes control difficult and hashardly any spin. Looping is very difficult especially when faced with even moderate backspin. Certainly not one for intermediate or better players.
Fast for the room I was playing in. Very heavy too, put it on both sides of an old blade I had which was way more balanced with the previous rubber so that could be on me.
Decent enough spin, good for the price anyway. Probably good for an intermediate player playing in rec leagues looking for a cheap way to improve power. Just make sure you have enough room, looping close to the table is nearly impossible. I am more of a defensive player so this was almost opposite my style but for an inexpensive rubber it's not a bad buy.
made for boosting.when unboosted :very hard sponge with low throw angle,medium distance play is very difficult.I applied 5 layers of Falco and rubber is really very good now.Having played with hurricane 3 neo and skyline tg2 before,i say after boosting it is identical to these.However plays like a rock when unboosted,be warned.
I have been using a lot of more expensive rubbers but Always end up prefering this One. Probably i think i am better then i am. Filled with enough Speed and spin for me. Easy to play against backspin and playing loopes far from table is a breeze. I am using fh red 2,2 and bh black 2,0. Think this rubber is suited for beginners to very demanded platsers!
The rubber produces much spin, but it pruduces little speed (for me). So, when I do a loop, it's very spinny, but it's slow. However, it maybe good for BH, but it's bad for FH. It's good for flick and have enough spin for serves. The tackiness reduces very fast but it still easily dirty.
How U can give this rubber speed over 7 in overall ? With what did U compare >? It's very slow rubber. I have Donic Coppa Platin Soft X2, Donic BlueFire M3 and they are much faster. Even pips i was trying Thibar Grass DTecs are faster!
this rubber is unbelievable, the spin is really "SUPER", the ratings you see posted are very accurate, I am a Tenergy 05 user and I love it, but after months of contemplation I used this rubber and I can confirm that the spin is the same, of course it's significantly slower plus there is no spring, but there is absolutely no shot that is too slow and you can easily return heavy underpin with loads of topspin and with the control you just cannot get from any spring sponge, so it comes down to style, but this rubber really has no fault, it's MUCH better than their Battle rubber - it has a lot more spin and still some more control.... I can't understand why it isn't more popular, I've used lots of expensive rubbers and this is definitely my 2nd favorite, T05 is addictive, I will buy a lot more and stick to it, eventually my T05 will die out and it's just not 10 times better than this. If this rubber cost more, i would give it 4 stars, but at this price it is definitely a 5 star, so much more than I expected from a Chinese rubber

This rubber is, of course, a great deal. It is also durable and reliable for all your strokes. This is a quintessential Chinese rubber: flat pip structure and a hard sponge that take a lot of energy to activate, relying on tackiness to grip the ball. This means controlled topspin rallies and also reliable, no-spin ball placement in the touch game. Where the hard sponge prevents the ball from digging in, such as in over-the-table play and lifting backspin, the tackiness makes these shots effective. 729 FX will accommodate whatever stroke you need, however flat-hitting is its weakest point: the tackiness slows the ball down.
I actually put this on a mini blade, both sides, and plays surprisingly well given that fact. I have had a chance to use it on a full-sized blade though and it feels very slow. Playing away from the table is difficult. It's plenty tacky though, so serves are spinny, as are loops. You just have to put a lot of effort into your shots. It ain't bad. You could put this on a cheap blade and have a decent racquet that matches up to quite a few pre-made ones.
