XIOM Vega Def
Xiom Vega Def is the slowest rubber in the Vega series. This defensive rubber is on the extreme end when it comes to spin production. With a dampening sponge; serves, chops, and pushes can be imparted with heavy spin. While its apparent strengths are in defensive strokes, Vega Def can still provide topspin based attacks when the need to attack presents itself.
Vega DEF like all Vega rubbers, has a Hypo Elasto-Top-Layer that is great for generating drag, friction and extra catapult. All Vega rubbers, draw a larger safe-zone above the net, which is ideal for chopping defensive players.
Hardness: Hard / Dampening Sponge

Reviews of XIOM Vega Def (4)
* A ton of spin at low speeds, including serves. More than most tacky rubbers.
* Creating more spin at high speeds requires digging into ball.
* Do not try to brush loop with this, always dig a little big into ball.
* Near table chops are not good, angle returned is too low to go over net.
* Touch shots are not great, they frequently go too far or too high.
* Decent at blocking higher speed balls or counter looping.
I would definetly play this if it were not for the high price and the fact that the topsheet still isn't grippy enough.
If they change topsheet or lower price it will be my new FH weapon.
The funny thing about this is that the harder you hit, the more spin it will make. Technique is only secondary. Even smashes arc down significantly. Due to the elastic hardness, this is actually the fastest and most powerful rubber I have ever played. Ma long loops are now easy again, even with 40+ trash balls in humid conditions. But serving and brushing is not so very good, so I am skeptical for now.
Oh yeah, just don't try to play oldschool chopping defense with it, only maybe far away from table. Just play a drive against enemy hard loop, it will be returned with more spin that the incoming ball haha.
More of a powerful allround rubber, or straight up attacking rubber.
Update: I can get this rubber now cheaper, so I will try to play with it permanently. I call this rubber now Mega Death, because of the massive damage it causes to my opponents. This rubber is no joke. With proper form and good physique, it's gonna completely obliterate your opponents block by the third loop drive. But did you know it can play defense, too? Well, I already forgot about that while loop driving my opponents insane. Anyways, it can do everything, and most of that really well. If I can get 4 months of good performance out of it I will remain loyal to this beast.
