XIOM Omega IV Asia
• For dynamic power-spin attackers
• Designed for advanced players with higher swing speed
• Powered by extra-hard new carbo sponge
Extra spin capability by new constructions and additional built-in tension. Extreme power with extra spins in deadly aggression. Grippy top sheet accompanied by very hard Carbo Sponge and fully built-in speed-glue effect creates amazing power-spin performance. Maybe too hard for non-professionals to exploit the full capacity OMEGA IV ASIA provides the advantage to well trained players with higher swing speed. OMEGA IV ASIA stretches the ball from opponent's court very aggressively and low with extra spin. Extra precision and superb consistency from solid construction also benefit high-speed players.
Hardness (Sponge): 48.0 degree (Hard)

Reviews of XIOM Omega IV Asia (20)
Good for FH. It is very spinny. Control is good too. And looping is very good.
Same spin as P7, FastArc G-1, T05. Faster than those. Lower throw than those. Much less bouncy and more controllable in either blocks or rallies.
I tried this rubber as FH and BH in Tenor, Violin, Acoustic,Acoustic Carbon, 7P2A, Extra Offensive, Ludeack, TB ALC.
As FH only in Excellent A, Extra Special, P500, Ludeack Fleet, Offensive S, Joo Se Hyuk.
In all those blades it performs really good. The stiffer the blade the better it gets.
Lately i acquired a Viscaria black tag and promptly glued this rubber in the forehand. Outstanding!
I already bought another pair to replace the Asia on FH and the Rakza 7 on BH.
Comparing to Rakza 7, it is deader, has more grip and lower throw.
Be aware this rubber does need to break in. About a week. After that the topsheet becomes really soft. Works very well with plastic balls, no technique changes required.
This rubber is one I often return to. Blocks amazingly with speed. The speed is incredible when powerlooping or drive looping, the hard sponge engages with speed. In this way it feels like Tenergy 64. However, the grip is amazing on the top sheet and the spin is immense. For slow spinny loops and brush looping, this rubber feels like Tenergy 05.
I play Modern Defense, and where this rubber excels is in distance pushing (Not quite a chop) and I often get netted balls due to the underspin. Full swing chops take more care due to the grip and the speed. But once you get used to it, the underspin is nuts.
My favorite stroke with this rubber is the distance guiding topspin (not quite a loop, but more of a guiding distance block). Watch Filus or Gionis play and you'll see they do this stroke often. The control on this stroke is why I choose this rubber over Tenergy 05 or 64.
To summarize, if Tenergy 05 and 64 had a baby, it would be this rubber, but with more control and far less weight.
I play with Omega IV Asia second year and I also played with IV Euro and V Tour versions.
This Omega has definitely the hardest sponge. When hit at full power, it seems also the fastest. I am not able to bottom it out, except when smashing with full body power.
For slow pushes and blocks, it plays also slow, almost no catapult, very controlable.
Regarding spin, it is about the same, as other Omega versions. Very good for spinny serves.
It is less forgiving than softer Omega rubbers, due to hard sponge. Rubber does exactly what I put in it, and I can fully rely on its performance.
Dont get hype about this. Dont get me wrong. This is a good rubber, but if you are a spinfan this is not the way to go. Also, dont like the throw.
One of the best rubbers out there. But I think its is very under-rated. It is great for RPB. keeps the ball low and has great spin while keeping the speed there also. Much better than the O4Euro. Also it is a tensor, don't know why it is marked as not one.
Didnt liked this one. To slow and not enough spin
I tried this for my backhand on the Xiom Haybusa Zxi blade.
The rubber is slightly tacky. It doesn't have the catapult effect like my previous andro plasma 470.
When you do top spin attack, the ball tend to skit on the table after the bounce. This means it doens't bounce up as much which makes it harder for the opponent.
At first I had a hard time to control the ball, it was flying everywhere. However, once I get use to it, I swear I will never want to try another rubber! This is it, I have finally found the "dream" rubber. It has speed, spin, & control. By the way, I use it for my forehand, my back hand I use Xiom Omega IV pro.
This is a Tensor rubber don't know why it's listed as not ? Of all the rubbers I've tried this is as close to Ten 05 as I have found. Use it on a Timo Spirit in max. It is a heavy rubber in the same weight as Ten 05, 73 grams on the max I got uncut. Of all the Xiom rubber I like this the best, don't know why that it's not a popular rubber!
I have used a Omega IV Asia on my BH for 3 months. Since I use a Hinoki Shake Swift which is a medium blade I found it's sponge to be to sof. I could block and do soft loops very well. It isn't a good choice for more agressive backhands.
A very good BH rubber. Spinny and low-throw.
Good rubber. Fast, good spin, throw anglr mid to low. Much control for a fast rubber.
I bought Xiom omega iv asian for the replacement of my Yasaka rakza 7. It's a pretty good rubber with regards to speed, spin and control. My set up is nittaku G-Carbon blade, Tenergy 05 red on my forehand and Xiom omega IV Asia Black on my back hand. Although xiom claims that asia version has very hard sponge, i found it not very hard compares to Tenergy 05 perhaps a little bit softer. But when u play the tenergy 05 and Xiom Omega VI asia, it is almost identical. But Tenergy 05 can produce more spin than Xiom. The best point about this rubber is easiness to do backhand drive with a pleasure click sound. It could be a good replacement for Tenergy 05 since it's 23$ cheaper than Tenergy 05 and the performance is the same. I would say it's identical. It has the carbo sponge similar to the sponge used for Tenergy. In summary, if you were gonna buy a new set up, I would recommend to use Xiom if u like the feel of Tenergy 05.
xiom , is the best rubber in the world , i prove all the rubbers and is amazing, the speed and qualities!! the best choice for profesional table tennis!!!!
it is a quite fast rubber....when u loop, u must cover the ball at the right angle to catapult the ball with the desired speed u wan.
I use it on my backhand and it provides me better blocking and rallies.
i love this rubber,it's good for speed,can loop very good,the control is also good because i always hit back to the table
After playng with OMEGA IV Pro ans Asia I became a fan of Xiom rubber. Amazing quality of topsheet. Very high spin sufficient speed for an all-in attacker, suitable for near to table play but can serve well at mid distance as well. Somewhat slower and less bouncy that Pro but allows a bit more controll.
