Cheap average Chinese rubber. I missed spin.

Used on BH with Stiga All Classic for 1 month:
Medium sponge hardness with rather compact, yet responsive tacky topsheet results in a (for me) great BH rubber. Easy on short game, good Control when blocking, can create massive spin when Looping. I recommend it a lot if you want to improve your BH strokes.

Friendship/729 Higher is very nice BH rubber. Sponge hardness is H42 degrees chinese scale. This rubber is extremely spiny and has excellent control in all types of shots. Keep this in mind, it is very good ALL round rubber that can be used by both offensive and defensive players. It lasts a very long time comparing to Butterfly Tenergy rubber. Usually, Tenergy 05 dies after 40-50 hours of intensive use on my BH, but 729 Higher lasts around 250 hours. If you consider performance, spin, control, durability and price Friendship/729 Higher is obsolete a winner for me. I highly recommend this rubber to competitive player!

I think this is a good training rubber, but I like the general sponge much better for training or beginner. The one arguement in favor of higher I can see is; if you plan to end up using springy sponge later on, this sponge has a little more spring in it (If that helps anything). But, it "binds up" your stroke more if you are trying to learn a stroke in my opinion.
For a tournament winning sponge as a beginner, maybe this would be good also, but I wonder if it is too low performance with too little control for that. To me, it is not enough more than general sponge in performance to merit using it. If you want more performance a bigger step than this rubber might be better.
