Reviews of Victas VS>401 (11)

Possibly the easiest offensive rubber to play with. It is significantly slower than other tension rubbers, but offers immense control due to being very soft and slightly tacky. Looping with this rubber tends to result in a somewhat slow yet extremely spinney ball, however smashing is very controlled and spin insensitive when speed is important. It is very easy to produce very heavy pushes and block short. From long distance this rubber isn't good for much besides chopping due to how slow it is. I would highly recommend this rubber for both defenders and close to the table attacking players.

Probably the spinniest rubber I've played with - great for chopping and serving, but it is not super easy to control because it is fairly reactive to opponents spin. It is a good rubber for attacking - albeit not at extreme speeds. If you are going to use this rubber, it may be worth while using the other side for return of serve.

Im currently a DEF+ BH and ALL FH player between advanced beginner and low intermediate. I have 1.5mm black on the BH and 1.8 on the FH on a 7 ply, balsa blade. Ive tried: Mark V variants, Xiom Vega variants, Tenergy 05, Hurricane 2&3, LKT Pro & Friendship 729, and a few others.

I love/hate this rubber. I love the rubber, hate that I can't get the best from it (technique?). Its an enigma to me still. While it has many gears, they seem to be at either end of the speed or spin spectrum with a gear-less middle.

I find medium paced drives, blocks and punches inconsistent. Feeling is less 'available' and spin/speed seem less controllable so placement suffers. Perhaps it needs more time but it is definitely the least 'user friendly' aspect of the rubber.

For a hard rubber it provides quite a bit of control (if not feel) in soft contact. You can take a heap of speed off with passive play, and the difference is significant with the ball dropping remarkably short. On the other hand, no other rubber I've tried comes close to generating as much speed (and variation), except maybe Tenergy (but I couldn't control it). High speed, high spin loops are easy, comfortable and require less effort.

Spin is excellent, though I'm finding service spin more difficult to generate. Perhaps it is the hardness factor influencing this. Serves are solid, though not deadly.

Control is wonderful (dare I say sublime?) in the short game and also looping.

So far the rubber still looks in pristine condition, faring better than any of the other rubbers mentioned above over similar usage. It has been re-glued twice now and suffered no damage at all. I haven't rated durability yet though as it needs more time and more abuse to see how it really lasts.

While touted as a strong defensive rubber (thanks to its spin and chop control), all-in-all this is also an excellent rubber for an ALL+ to OFF all-round and modern defender players, enabling great variation, touch and speed.
