This spin-oriented dynamic version possesses a much longer bat/ball contact time thanks to the especially developed pimple geometry of the rubber surface. For each player who thanks to a more physical action (acceleration arm/wrist) can activate the enormous potential of the MX-S: at the table or at half distance, this rubber will realize an even performance.

Another on the top 10 list, this spin-elastic monster doesnt need any presentation. Everything have already been said.
Update with another blade (ALC) and the result is different: no more issue with FH, ball is keeping same curve whatever the arm speed thus more consistent on this harder wood. Thus depending on which blade you use it may be better for FH or BH. Definitely a good rubber in any case
I am using the MX-P on BH on Stiga Celero, replacing my long time favorite on both sides Vega pro (also reviewed). I will therefore try to make a comparison between both:
MXS feels a little bit harder and is heavier. Spin is very similar. Throw angle of VP is higher. Sensitivity to incoming spin is higher on VP thus more control on MXS for me on the BH.
Power/speed: With smaller arm movements (e.g. BH) the MX-S is faster but with full power the VP is much more powerful !!! And also more consistent, indeed I have the feeling that the more power I give (full arm), the lowest the throw angle is (with MXS) and my FH topspins were always very close to the net (or in the net....). With the VP the faster I move, the faster the ball is going and always with identical angle, it is very linear and proportional to arm speed. In the end, I tried the MXS as a potential replacement of my VP on the FH but I will only use it on the BH. MXS gives me some benefits: less sensitive to spin and lower throw thus easier for blocks, and I don\'t have the fast arm / low throw angle issue with my BH.

Slower than MX-P, but a bit more spin.
When I first played with the MX-S I absolutely hated it. It was so heavy and the harder I hit with it the lower an arc it seemed to produce. I'm glad I didn't take it off of my blade however, as the second and third time around I discovered how I could make this rubber shine. serving, heavy and well placed topspin drives from close to the table and precisely placed active blocks and pushes. One warning though, this rubber will do nothing for you if you have bad technique and improper movement. Be there and commit to the shot or your opponent will expose this rubber's weaknesses.
One of the best rubbers manufactured ever for forehand topspin. The spin generated is immense but one needs to know the right technique. Once you adapt to it you would not even go for tenergy. Works very well with Timo Boll alc blade. However you need to re glue it after a while. One must definitely give it a try.
Very much heavy, sheet is 73 gram. Better or same as rubber (for example xiom vega japan) weigh much much less.
Also edges of rubber break after a little use.
It is very fast and there is spin but little control. Good for forehand. Also good price but too much weight and throw inconsistent
Having returned to the game after a 35 year layoff, these rubbers have really helped me reproduce and improve on what I remember how my style of game used to be.
When starting again, I purchased a pre made tibhar power carbon jobby just to start me off. I found this ok for control, but I found it hard work to generate the speed and spin that I wanted. So the old volcano++ rubbers were ripped off and replacd with mx-s 2.2 on both sides.
This new setup has given me exactly what I want for my attacking style. I am now able to replicate and actually improve on my backhand and forehand hitting, topspin and looping. My short ball backhand flick generates an enormous amount of spin to force a long and high return for me to have a go at.
Control on both sides is excellent, allowing me to place loops and topspin shots pretty much where I want them. Most errors are self inflicted and I cannot blame the bat for that!
My only slightly negative observation is that short pushes are a little more difficult, but if you push long with good technique, plenty of backspin is generated or you can play a no-spin ball to make it more awkward for the other player to settle into a pushing game and allowing a more aggressive opening shot from me.
Very happy, and looking forward to growing with this setup.
Have been playing with T05 on FH for a while now (Dornenglanz II 0,5 (homemade) on BH, twiddling). Decided to give this one a try, but did not have high expectations. How wrong I was. This rubber is truly great and there is no reason paying almost double for T05. Transition from T05 was done after a couple of strokes. I might agree that T05 is a tad better for service, but thats it. All other aspects is equal if not in favour of MX-S. By the way, my blade is Stiga Defensive Wood NCT.
This is the best rubber I've ever used for combination being able to create of spin on all of my own shots, while still being able to easily handle spin on opponents shots. has plenty of speed if you crack it good too. I use it on my Xiom Vega tour blade and since I've been using this rubber I'm being players I could not beat previously. best forehand rubber ever for me.
This is as good as it currently gets. Soft reaction to touch shots, and generates consistent speed & spin when power applied. Great rubber. Difficult to see beyond it at present for any attacking player.
I was having problem with my MX-P and my hits are so powerful but mostly they are very long and hard to control, have to be mid-distance at the table to contain it. Push was also uncontrollable for me because of the catapult effect. Not like MX-S, there were no catapult effect that is why push is controllable and my hits are not long even if it is close to the table. Need to swing to unleash its power. Currently using this and my percentage got better.
Very good forehand rubber. Excellent speed, spin, and control. Not so much catapult effect but you can feel decent support from the medium hard sponge.
Have tried my MX-S on 2 different blades - gave me 2 different results. When it was on Butterfly Mizutani Jun, the speed and control are like a dream. When it was on my JOOLA Bomb Extrem, it somehow felt a little slow, not sure if it is because of the sponge hardness. At the end of the day, great rubber with great spin, speed and control. Great for modern games with new balls.
It's the heaviest rubber I ever had. It was so heavy it was actually easier to get spin with a worse rubber that's lighter in games because acceleration is quicker with smaller movement.
In training this feels like the best rubber in the world, but in actual games it's not.
I think people rate it so highly because they feel like gods in training shots with it, which is true, but not the same in competition.
Also I think there is bias in the reviews because factual data says it's one of the heaviest rubbers there are (like 75g uncut).
In short, there are many other rubbers that achieve the same while being lighter and more manageable.
Bardzo dobra guma, sprbowaem wersji MX-S 1.9-2.0 na FH, wczeniej by Rasant Grip, jest szybciej a tyle samo kontroli i rotacji. Pki co rewelacja!
Very good BH rubber. Very forgiving and so much spin if you have a good technique you will love it. The throw angle is a bit higher compared with MX-P but the catapult effect is not existent. The rubber does what you want :)
Great quality, beautiful red sponge. Spinny, slower than acuda blue p2 or joola maxxx-p on the short game because of soft topsheet, but as spinny as P2 (as spinny as it gets) and as fast or even faster on flat hits or power loops because of the Red Power (medium hard) Sponge. Great for BH blocking, pushing, looping and topspins at close to middle distance from the table. Using max thickness and an off to off+ blade you could get it to produce awesome, tenergy-competing speed and spin with great consistency far from the table too. Serves can be deadly. Good price also. Vladi Samsonov plays Tibhar MX series on both wings. However for lower level club or competition play I reccommend 2.0 thickness on BH using an all+ 5ply wood blade. I used it with Yasaka Sweden Extra and really love the variations and Allroundness of MX-S. Real must try. Also, this is one of the few non ESN rubbers that really compete with Tenergy at the top levels, and the construction is also more similar to Tenergies than to ESN tensors due to it having more natural rubber on the topsheet, and a really premium quality red sponge (like Tenergy's).
