Reviews of Stiga Calibra Tour S (3)
Used 1.9mm on FH and BH, Allround blade.
I can't generate good topspin with shorter FH moves. Also, I hit with the wood on the more direct hits, and don't like the feeling.
Circa 39g glued. Good middle-of-the-road rubber, nothing exceptional IMO. I am sure one can use it just fine with very good technique. I don't have such technique and even then I would prefer more short-move spin (for topspin/sidespin blocks).
I got it cheaper than Xiom Vega Europe but overall prefer the Vega
(more spin from short moves and higher throw and no worse in other respects).
Reading the reviews on this website and others, I was intrigued. So I tried it and I can confirm that it is a weird rubber. The top sheet is completely non-tacky and feels very close to an anti-top. The sponge is harder than many other rubbers with the "soft" designation.
Then I tried hitting balls with it. This was a bizarre experience that is difficult to explain. The rubber is able to generate a great deal of spin and has a nice curve as you would expect with other tensor-like rubbers. But there was no ball feel at all. The weird thing was that it was really just a feeling problem, in reality the ball seemed to go where I wanted at a good speed. But no dwell time whatsoever. I felt that my serves suffered because of this. The main advantage it has is weight. It was almost 4g lighter than the M3 after cutting.
This is not like any other rubber. It's completely non-tacky but can still produce a monstrous amount of spin to the ball. The short game is really easy, and when you're attacking it's always controlled with very much power. I love this rubber.
