Tibhar Evolution MX-S, I am using max thickness, black sheet on my forehand side, mounted on a Tibhar, Drinkhall defense classic blade.
So far I have found that I can create high topspin levels when lifting backspin balls to my forehand, good technique is still required. high spin, brushed' topspin shots can have significant amounts of spin imparted on them, very difficult for an opponent to control.Regarding speed, the rubber is fast, not the fastest, but more than enough speed, even when mounted on a defensive blade. When you open up with forehand loops and forehand side spin loops during more open play the results are excellent, good speed and kick, high spin. If you are able to use your legs, hips, chest rotation and accelerate into the ball with arm and wrist at impact then really good fast and spinning loops can be performed. Flatter topspin shots, are fast, crisp and accurate, not so much spin, but this is due to the fact that the ball is not brushed as much during flat hit shots, acceleration / pace and accuracy is really good.
Counter topspin shots (short swing firm topspin strokes) can be performed with good consistency as well. (if you're quick enough to get in position!!!).
So that's the offensive part!!Defensive and passive play,
Control is good, the rubber and sponge combination has medium / medium high throw, so you can still play direct fast blocks, lighten your grip, get over the incoming ball and you can play controlled slower blocks that can take the pace off of the incoming ball. Pushing is fine, good control.
All push variants can be played with confidence, soft / short, long, early pushes just after the incoming ball hits your side of the table, no spin / floating pushes, aggressive back spin pushes and side spin pushes. I feel that I get good feed back / feeling from the rubber and blade during short game/ passive play.
Serving, All good, depending on your service technique, great spin!!!
All in all a great rubber.
Bought this already the same day. Waiting seemed very long:-)
Having played Evolution-rubbers before, ALL of them, except FX-P, with Rasant itself and Rasant grip as my favorites, this was way beyond what i was expecting. Its exactly (and iREALLY mean this, a mix of Tenergy 05 and Fastarc G1!
And since they are my favorite rubbers, this was a blast. Speed is just exactly like i want it, and as i am a offensive spinattackingplayer that likes to take a step back from the table,i adore this. i think it leans towards spin rather than speed, but i dont mean slow. Far from slow.Just behind MX-P. The rubber showes and shines like a tailored costum. Having played like 20 times with it now, i dont can see a better rubber anywhere, and i have tested 130 rubbers. The hard low sidespin a step back from the table that almost no one has taken is a dream. A dream that comes often.
If your looking for the ultimate all around rubber for the modern game with the plastic ball this is the one .You get all the benefits of the modern tensor and the short game of an old school rubber .It's an harder and better mx-p .T05 still a better rubber for looping but the mx-s is more all around and easier to play .Glued on a stiga oc it's a spin monster ,block are crispy ,chop are easy to do and the speed is a bit faster than a T05 .No rubber is perfect but this one come close to perfection .
The S series of thibar evolution is the most similar to tenergy so far, fast, good spin, consistent, sound and pleasant sensation, medium angle, good topspin, all the strokes are consistent and easy to execute, sensation of medium hardness, feels a little softer than evo el-s, possibly by upper layer, very good, very similar to tenergy 80
My fh-rubber on my Stiga Clipper CR WRB. Top ten rubbers all time. Fits my style perfect. Spinnier than MX-P, but a tad slower. Spin out of this world!
Feel soft,low throw, good service and short game, but not inave power in long distance.Good close to the table,less catapult than mx-p.Weight is less than mx-p.This is my first impression, after 4 hours training,now reglued and tomorrow again, I'm hope tomorrow is going better with falko glue-3 lears. After one week, I'm feel this is hard rubber,low,low trow, good very close to the table, brush topspin,China stile rubber,you need a very good footwork,not forgiving rubber,not for my playing style (I'm not from China)))), I'm back to my lazy European rubber,sorry China, sorry Ma Long )))!!!
I tried MX-S on BH, great for blocking and hitting. Then I tested with my FH, and you know it's really good! It's very linear, very little catapult effect, so with a good arm, you can really shoot huge topspin. The amount of spin is even better than T05 (which is my actual FH) The only issue is the weight. I might keep up with this one when I'll change my T05.
This rubber fits right in the middle between tensor and tacky rubbers, its a nice transition rubber tons of spin in serves, flicks, topspin/topspin rallies, etc. Should try If you like hard and spinny rubbers but you lack of strength for a tacky rubber.

Yo uso MxS color rojo grosor max en cuchilla yeo7 off+ , cuesta mucho acostumbrase al control y efecto. Goma dura y pesada. Pero una vez acostumbrado tiene un efecto increble
Im so in love with this rubber!!
Ive used this rubber on Xiom Zetro Quad(not so fast Carbon blade)on my forehand for the last 4 months.
SPONGE-TOPSHEET combination is fantastic. The sponge is really hard(more density than mx-p) but has a softer topsheet so in general the rubber dont feel hard but medium hard in my opinion and in play this has many positives.
TOPSPIN: here is where this rubber is amazing because I feel that I can really decide how much spin or speed I want to generate, if you need speed the hard sponge is really good and at the sams time if you need more grip too the topsheet really helps!
The arc is medium/medium-high and thats good for a so hard sponge!
SPIN: in general this rubber is very very spinny, when you topspin and when serve too
CONTROL: like I said the softer Topsheet helps to make the rubber more easier to play with
So the blocks and service responce is easy
NEGATIVE: a bit heavy, on smashes is a bit slower than mx-p, need a good technique!
My playing style is really top spin/spin oriented and I need a good control for fast blocks
So for me(tryed rasanter r47, T05, omega V, bluefire jp01) this is the best forehand rubber ive tryed.
Really high reccomended rubber for rotation topsins.
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.
