Boost TX is one of the fastest rubber sheets Stiga has ever produced. It is very bouncy and gives a tremendous catapult effect with Stiga's sponge formula TTS Trans Tension Sponge.
Boost TX (Tension eXcelleration) is the answer for the player who wants to achieve optimum acceleration without speed glue, because of its outstanding combination of speed and spin. Trans Tension Sponge TTS generates maximum tension, and it provides high acceleration returns for a fast spin and speed game. The sponge has medium hardness, in between the hardness of Boost TC and Boost TP. Boost TX is recommended for highly trained attackers with good technical know-how.
The Boost series includes 4 rubbers: Boost TS, Boost TC, Boost TP and Boost TX. Each Boost rubber has special characteristics to suit your game and your expectations for a rubber. All Boost rubbers have built-in speed glue effect and generate tremendous power and spin. The trajectory is phenomenal and the feeling is like playing with speed glue.

Reviews of Stiga Boost TX (27)
I bought this because I thought the sponge was medium, but it's medium-hard or maybe a little firmer. The throw is very low, so it's a struggle to loop with it. It is fast. Spin is not good for low power shots, because the ball can't sink into the rubber. This rubber has too little spin associated with my effort. It's hard to get the ball to travel in an arc, like you can get with, say tenergy 05. You have to re-adjust all your paddle angles. Also, this rubber has speed and spin qualities just like DHS NEO SKYLINE TG 2. However, it is fair to say that I played with this rubber for only one day. I may post an update as I play more with this rubber.
Good rubber but low throw, makes difficult to loop effectively. Good for smashers , blockers and power players. Not good for me. Rubber however is top quality, it just doesn't suit my game.
I've played with the same sheet of Boost TX rubbers for about a year now. It's still as sticky as it was the day I bought it even with deterioration at the edges due to wear and tear. The attributes that make this rubber so well received is no joke, this rubber is very fast even high level players are surprised by it.
It's a soft rubber that has a very springy snap to it. Very long dwell time makes serves very spinny and pushes very versatile.
this is a very good backhand rubber, if low-throw rubber is your thing. It produces a fast ball, even though I'm using Donic Epox Control, with enough spin to kill a rally. Chops very well, too, and the control is really good, but I would give most of the credit to my blade. A bit brittle. After around 6 weeks of playing, approximately 10 hours a week, the sides start to crack, but is still playable. All in all, it is for keeps. Very good rubber for a low price.
Excellent rubber in many areas.Well priced still a powerful and top rubber for the offensive game.Perfect for Stiga Clipper Classic.
Great rubber with a lot of spin and great feel,but you must choose right blade to it.
Very good BH rubber. Very good for blocking in combination with Tibhar Powerwood . Opening loops is allso OK.
Best rubber for BH. Can easily return BH ball to your opponent side with lots of speed and spin.
It's an awesome rubber!!!
best stiga rubber of all times even better than calibras and magnas I just love it
This my backhand rubber atm. I am satisfied with it. I needed to replace Rakza on my bh because of it's higher throw. I wanted to find a fast rubber with lower throw. This rubber should be faster than Almana (from Stiga website product details), but it isn't. It is fast, but it's speed is almost identical to Rakza (additionally I don't feel any extra high catapult effect, it performs linear. You can feel much stronger catapult effect with Rakza). Throw angle is medium-low, exactly what I was looking for. So it is 50/50, I was expecting more speed. I'm keeping it anyway. It has a very good spin, nice controll (it isn't too sensitive to incoming spin comparing to Rakza). The sponge hardness is medium, something around Tenergy. On the other hand not a high speed bomb as Stiga claims. I recommend it to eveyrone for close to the table allround attack-block game. If it was faster... 8/10.
Sorry for double post, I didn't notice I wasn't logged in.
EDIT (December 2011) I'm replaced Boost by Rakza again. Boost is an awesome rubber but it it plays best close to the table. I play more from the mid distance and Rakza is better in that.
I recently bought a custom paddle with this rubber on my FH and Hammond ProB on my BH. By far and away this is the fastest and most spinny rubber I have played with (on my FH). My only complaint is that the throw angle is quite low and I find myself having to use more shoulder to loop heavy underspin. This is not a big problem and only requires a minor adjustment to correct. I LOVE THIS RUBBER!
fantastic rubber, must try to see how good this one really is. good for almost everything a offensive player wants.
fantastic rubber, amazing offensive rubber. has lots of gears for mild to intense attacking game. never loose control at any pace, spin is exccellent for the speed that is put on.
the best stiga rubber i have tryed so far, has all the right ingredient to do just about everything. very durable rubber, excellent speed,spin,control. just a little less spin than tenergy 05, but overall i prefer boost tx. the sponge feels about 38 degrees.
It's the popular Rubber after Stiga boost TS and All-around use.
In generally .. It's perfact for all:
return the ball from serve
every thing in this rubber is pefect ( control, sound, speed and spin )
You can use it in both ( forehand and backhand )
easy to use ... you can't find any thing in this rubber is wrong.
I love this rubber more than any rubber.
