Introduced Jan 2009
Spin is the most important element of modern table tennis. Not only the strength of spin but also the stability and secure feel have been desired by many players. VEGA series is the realization of the dream. VEGA is the mixture of two new technologies - HYPER ELASTO and CARBO SPONGE. Both of them are based on TENSOR technology which gives rubber the effect of built-in tension. HYPER ELASTO provides extreme spin and stability, and black colored CARBO SPONGE provides innovative efficiency of energy. Further, the feel of VEGA is exciting but comfortable. Its ease of use will help players play “winning” table tennis. Now four variations are available. All of them provide exceptional spin capability. VEGA PRO is for extreme spin, softer VEGA ASIA is for more speed, VEGA EUROPE is softer with more control, and finally, the softest VEGA ELITE is for extreme control.

Reviews of XIOM Vega Europe (90)
Pros: easy to play basic shots, blocking is excellent, choice of 1.8/2.0/max, 43g in max.
Cons: bouncy in short game, hardness 31 is too soft for power looping, for spinning there are much better choices like vega pro, not very durable.
Used it on my backhand, feels amazing. This with Xiom Vega Pro on the forehand is the best combination imo.
quality was not good, after 2 weeks I used the rubber start getting bubbles
Bought on recommendation of user :"superspin''. Amazing rubber.Best rubber for me to loop and lift backspin.I have never looped so beautifully....high to medium high arc+loops land very deep with great speed.I have on it DHS 301 blade.Super light rubber,cut rubber was 40 grams only-lightest I ever used.High grade topsheet-very grippy,bit tacky,Very good for pushes,accurate placement.net play awesome, I can play until mid distance also without problem. My FH flick for receive has skyrocketed.Update:20 March 2018-had to remove as a friend hit it on table creating a hole.But while removing the sponge showed how strong it was.
I used this rubber on BH, very explosive, nice to block and make topspin shoots, the down side are the gears, not many, hiting harder or not you will not get much difference on the shoot speed, apart from that its a very good bh rubber, also easy to service with and make service returns
I find it a very good rubber for my Forehand (i play with Hurricane Long 5).. Ive tried many soft Rubbers (Acuda S3-Tenergy 05 fx-Rasant Powersponge-Rasanter R42 and R37, Bluefire M3) and i can say you that its not worse than the others and that its cheaper.. Its nice because it has a very good Quality for a small Price!! I paid 25 Euros against the 50 for the Tenergy!
great responsive rubber. Forehand loops work great. Still working on my BH.
love it.. great value for the price, super spin, control, and speed. Used on the backhand.
Outstanding performance. FH + BH on Viscaria . super loop, counter attack, chop, everything you can do with it.
Just got them today and beat straight 3 set games the guy, who I never win ( only in my dream )
Hands down best rubber for intermediate-level play. Probably good for certain advanced-level styles too.
Used max thickness on the backhand. Its best attribute is control. It also lasts a long time, and can't beat the price. The max thickness was not good for me. Pushing was difficult. Didn't like the medium to low throw angle. used it on a 7 ply wood blade. maybe it's better on a carbon blade. Spin and speed is ok.
I bought this rubber as an intermediate player keen to move on from Sriver to develop a more attacking style. Initially I found it difficult to control after the relatively deadening sriver but I soon got used to it and now find it helps my looping and especially counter looping and loop blocking. I don't find it so easy to push but this is probably just my bad technique. It gives a great range between snappy hitting and more delicate controlled play - I'd recommend to non beginners looking to speed up your game- written by my friend
Very fast but reactive and requires almost 80-85 degree loop angle, very closed and caused mistakes due to that angle. I mischief prefer more open face looping rubbers. I moved it to backhand and was the same angle face but a very fast but lost spin over 2-1/2 months. I am trying a different rubber, it's good but to fast for me and not my style of play. 3.5 of 5 would recommend for fast European away from table players

Soft sponge. Not aggressive enough for me. Good to learn.
Very nice pliable and grippy rubber sheet. I use max and the spin while looping is good. Very strong driving loops, good control on short ball loops, and controlled blocks. Good offensive rubber sheet, off the table chops/slices are very doable if you have the technique. This is a good offensive rubber that makes looping and playing spinny shots fun. It's got good dwell time and after a couple weeks it feels like the ball sinks into the sponge and topsheet with nice feel during shots with a lot of wrist across the ball.
Each sheet of this rubber looks fresh. It's superbly elastic, has durable topsheet and nice black soft sponge.
This rubber is on softish side, use blades with harder outer/bit stiffer to get maximum potential out of this.
Phenomenal control - quite easy to play where you want even if your technique is struggling yet. Great rubber for backhand play close to the table. In some way negate incoming spin during receives but you can block stable incoming attacks. For begginer-intermediate it's must a try rubber. Performance, quality and durability is superb with this price.
This rubber is the top winner when you compare performance to price. Tenergy prices are up again so decided to give this one a try on BTY Viscaria. I am an intermediate tournament player and find this rubber superb for my level. Strong spin,speed and excellent control so what more could you ask from a rubber at this price point. High grade topsheet with med/soft sponge makes for a very playable rubber. You know your not going to the Olympics peeps so do yourself a huge favor and try this rubber. Even Tenergy users will be surprised at the performance at half the price. Loops are dynamic and loaded with topspin, short game is direct with much control. Blocks well, counters fast. As a reference I was using T80FX and love this rubber even more. I love this rubber on FH. No this rubber is not only for beginners! Great rubber for everyone except hardbat and drunk players. Update: How some reviewers here call this rubber slow/ lacks spin is astounding, it simply is not true if you have good strokes and technique. This rubber has an intuitive nature as it seems to follow your arm speed/angle to guide your shot. Works great on FH or BH on a fast OFF or OFF+ blade. Upgraded to an overall score of 10. This rubber is the same price as several classic rubbers however the performance leaves them behind. I believe this rubber is the only rubber I have ever awarded a score of 10. Update: Tried this rubber on a ALL+ class blade. I was surprised that the speed element was still there on a slower class blade. This combo is very good for close to table loopers. Short game was excellent, blocking excellent, just a tic slower for counters and smashes but still remained fast. The absolute best choice for intermediate level control loopers who think can't afford the high price Tenergy's.
