Stiga Airoc M
STIGA Airoc utilizes STIGA's new OCS sponge technology (Oxygen Capsule System) to increase catapult effect without changing the spin ratio. This allows aggressive players to maintain the same spin/speed proportions they have always enjoyed. The key to this evolutionary advancement is the delicate balance between the size of the air pockets within the sponge and the elasticity of the top sheet. STIGA's engineers tested many different pips designs and tensions to achieve the perfect rubber for the attacking player. Poly Ball Optimized!
Airoc M is the Medium sponge version. Airoc M increases the catapult effect without changing the spin ratio.

Reviews of Stiga Airoc M (9)
I would rather choose the airoc astro series.
This rubber generates very good topspin from small-moves FH topspin/sidespin blocks; is also very good in counterhits and direct hits (quite fast, and it feels like hitting with a brick). My technique for loops and pushes is rather weak and the results are mixed. Lower throw than Xiom Vega Europe.
Heavy, I estimate it at 48g glued, and the most sensitive to incoming spin among my rubbers. Given these and the price, I don't intend to buy it again.
Maybe for my son once he starts beating me consistently; but then will likely pay extra and get him Tenergy. Also, at 1.7mm after three months of use, I started to hit with the wood on the more direct hits, and don't like the feeling.
This rubber is definitely great for those who are struggling to generate spin with the new ball and those who preferred softer rubbers with the celluloid ball but are now looking for something a bit firmer but with similar properties.
Airoc is clearly slower that Tour M, Airoc M don't have the insane speed of Calibras LT&Tour. Spin is good, first top spin is really easy. But this rubbers doesn't provide as much power as calibras. Its still a predictable rubber, very linear but clearly lacking the top speed of Calibras.
I commend this rubber on stiff blades like Stiga Emerald VPS.
Also, the durability isn't as great as the Tour M, the topsheet shows signs of degradation quite fast, after 20 hours of training is already looks "used", but it is still "above average".
Just like Tenergies, the rubber remains grippy a long time but the speed is dropping dramatically after 4 weeks maximum.
Tested booster on it to gave it a second life but booster looks like doesn't working on it......I wonder why.
