The Victas German-Japanese team of designers (GJ Tec) have developed an outstanding series of professional table tennis rubber called V for maximum power and balance. The rubber sheets in this family are V > 01 (Medium Sponge), V >01 Limber (Medium Soft Sponge) and now the latest edition the V >01 Stiff (Medium Sponge with Tackier Top Sheet), and V > 15 Extra (Medium Hard Sponge Sheet) and V > 15 Limber (Medium Soft) Sponge Top Sheet.
The Victas V > 15 topsheet has a moderately tacky surface and a more direct pimple alignment. The result is a highly responsive rubber sheet that produces great spin, and speed on contact. The rubber is also very responsive for over the table touch shots. This rubber is ideal positioned to help produce the maximum spin with power.
Hardness: Medium Hard 47.5

Reviews of Victas V>15 Extra (13)
Please notice I am reviewing this rubber as a Backhand rubber (on ALC blade). That said, I will come up with the best BH rubbers I have tried: Tenergy 05 and Rakza 7. V>15 Extra fits right between those two. I found this rubber excellent for BH, specially in the power-control ratio. T05 is still a bit more offensive but harder to control. Rakza gives the same control but lacks the power Victas can produce. I recommend V>15 Extra for those who like to open attack with BH topspin and also those who like to active block. Unfortunately I could not adapt it to my Forehand, my FH style requires something with harder sponge and more speed and spin (think of T05 Hard?). But for BH I believe I will keep playing with it for a long time.
V -15 Extra is MH rubber 47.5* offensive rubber.Like most rubbers nowaday is made in Germany but is not a ESN ..rubber.Hight end rubber by TSP/Victas is not cheap for sure cost US$54 got it from TT11 for a lot less.No question a good offensive rubber the quality is there .But IMO MXP is a bit better in feel and spin.
It's great while it lasts. I switched from Andro Rasant Grip because of availability, and I wanted to be like Koki. V15-Extra has 3 gears. If you hit flat you can bottom out the sponge easily. It feels a bit slow but control is good due to the low tackiness. At medium angles the rubber plays its worst - counter hitting has high throw angle with average spin. Control chopping is ok, but nothing amazing. Looping is just insane! At fine angles it feels like I'm aiming at the back wall, but the ball dives very quickly due to the incredible spin. If you can hit it fine enough, backspin is also pretty mad. The soft sponge is forgiving throughout the loop, giving me a lot of confidence.
There are two problems I had with this rubber. Because it worked best at shallow angles I found that I edged the ball a lot more. Secondly, this rubber did not last very long at all. I went through 4 sheets of V15 in under 6 months - about 40 hours of play per sheet. At 40 hours there was obvious signs of wear on my contact points which caused the ball to slide out at shallow angles. The cost of the rubber and the short lifespan makes V15-Extra a pretty bad deal - a shame because I really wanted to love it.
Setup was V15-Extra 2.2 red (fh), Donic Bluefire M3 2.2 black (bh), TSP Swat Power, shakehand grip.
Very good backhand rubber. Control is high and forgiving. Inside out shots or snake shots are amazing,
Very happy with this rubber. I was trying to find a decent replacement for Tenergy 05 and it plays a little harder and faster. Spin is great, you get what you put in. "On average" my game has more spin across all strokes compared to the Tenergy 05. More linear than Tenergy, not too bouncy in the short game but very fast on power loops. Overall this rubber plays somewhat similar to the new Tenergy 05 Hard.
Using as FH rubber on Marcos Freitas ALC, amazing speed ,spin and good control with very nice feeling.
best alternatives for Tenergy
Using as FH rubber on a Tibhar Stratus Defense Wood IN 1.9mm, switched to this a year ago from Tenergy 05. I'm a modern defender and this rubber does it all. I'm able to loop just as well as I did with T05, it does have less spin but the speed and throw arc is very similar to T05. Short game has improved due to this rubber being far less sensitive to incoming spin. This rubber chops like a dream as well. The top sheet does seem to wear out quicker than T05, however at 40-45 USD replacing this every 3-6 months is way better than the 75usd I was paying for T05.
I played with this rubber on Stiga Allround Evolution,on it is this rubber very good in speed ,spin and control.
for fasted blade is this rubber very fast and very hardnest.
Speed like T80
Spin like T05
Throw Angle beetwen T05 & T80
For me its easier to use than T05 (more insensitive to incoming spin than T05, im curving top spin more better)
Im using for FH, move from T05 to this rubber at BTY ALC blade
Although it emphasizes on spin, the rubber is not particular spiny. What special is it offers balance performance with non-tacky top sheet, therefore it is less sensitive to spin. This benefits players who often take chance to attack against back spin. In short, it is just another can-do-all medium price rubber.
Great rubber for a offensive game. Not recommend to use it on both sides, cause it's a heavier than average
