XIOM Vega Elite
Vega Elite is the softest version in Vega family. It is even softer and even more controllable than Vega Europe. Soft TENSOR sponge of cream color is combined with Hyper Elasto top layer of natural rubber.
This special combination provides very soft feel and superb balance. Its ease of use is exceptional. Vega Elite doesn't demand everyday training. Safe zone (window) above net for successful topspin attack is the biggest in Vega family.
So players can hardly mistake their attack with topspin. Also, its sound is very clear and loud. Players will be able to experience the pure pleasure of table tennis, thanks to its dynamic sound and great control. Vega Elite is especially recommended for European players who demand a rubber with softer feel than Vega Europe.

Muy buena goma para divertirse, muy similar a la Andro R37 pero con mejor arco.
Aunque le falta velocidad es una gran goma, mi compaero de equipo la monta en una madera de dureza media, su juego es muchsimo mejor ahora.
Good on forehand (serves, loops) on a stiff blade, didnt like it on the backhand side.
Vega Elite max, on Stiga ALL Classic and XIOM Diva. Butter-soft, hyper bouncy topsheet on very soft, springy cream sponge. This rubber is made for close to the table play, with a super high dwell time. Spin seems irregular; sometimes topspins are super spinny but at other times the ball seems to float long. It has a high throw on drives meaning the ball always clears the net and so blocking is very easy, however its bouncy nature often throws it too high to spin down in time unless a slower stroke is used. This bounciness makes service receive difficult. Service itself is one of its best points, due to the very grippy topsheet and high dwell time. A very impressive click is produced stepping back and one can achieve a large, bowing arc. However it is simply too slow to rally effectively against aggressive players and bottoms out immediately when smashing. Regarding durability this rubber should last if it is taken care of; otherwise it loses its grip quickly. The edges hold together well. Vega Elite would suit a close to the table topspin player who wants a soft, glue-effect rubber to do the work for them. Enjoy your TT!
Not a professional player here. But my review might be useful for the average hobbyist. The sponge on this rubber is soft and it's good for players looking for that "hard blade-soft rubber" combination. My issue with this is that the top sheet has very little grip/tackiness to it. And I think the speed the ball bounces on the sponge and the almost zero tackiness to this rubber is giving me issues in putting spin on the ball specially when serving. It's great for "catching" the ball in top spin to top spin rallies due to the dwell time, but putting spin is something else.
I have tried this as i wanted a low throw rubber for my backhand. I got a low throw but not much else. This feels like a fist generation tensor, it's springy all the time, serves and pushes pop-up and does not allow you to get proper spin on them. Speed is pretty linear and very few gears...ok if you want only control, not ok if you want the occasional strong hit to catch your opponent off guard. Good at blocks and not much else. Go for Vega Europe if you want a backhand soft rubber because is a much better rubber from all points of view.
