XIOM Vega Europe
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.

Good rubber in general, not so fast, but with excellent control, all the hits become a simple task with this.
This is a good all-around rubber with good control. I did not get tons of spin or speed but was able to get the ball where I wanted.
very nice rubber!!! I love it!
I am a penholder and i always use spin.fyi i never smash. So, when i found out about this rubber i tried it out and it was amazing. The spin was very spinny although the speed wasn't very fast . I use yinhe y15 blade, rozena for rpb backhand and xiom vega for fh.
Sadly, this doesnt seem to play as it used to. I reccomend Butterfly Rozena, great and better alternative if you are looking at this rubber.
It's working very well when to pair with hard blades.
Ratings for 2.0mm. Good pace, easy to smash with. Nice for beginners or kids.
XVE I used 1.8mm- very high level of control and helps to bring down the pace of rallies while being able to generate power on its own if needed. This rubber being so light and soft is good in accelerating to loop the ball and generating spin. A great rubber for beginners learning to spin the ball and for intermediate control players. For more advanced perhaps the MAX or 2mm will be more appropriate.
Probably one of the best BH rubbers. Great control and spin, not too fast but also not too slow. I can feel more confident when making BH shots with this rubber.
UPDATE 04/12/2020: Did not changed the sheet , still going good! I do see the edges chipping off a lot though, and it became much softer with the prolonged use, but the topsheet grip is still intact. UPDATE 04/24/2019 : Best rubber for blocking, fishing, and confidence booster in the loops. I indeed recommend this rubber to the players who is beginning to adapt to an allround looping game. I've had this rubber on my BH for about a week , later switched my FH side with DHS H301 for about a month (as I lack confidence on my FH at this point and needed a forgiving rubber). I don't have any complaints what so ever, as I'm learning to control the ball placement much efficiently on the other rubbers used so far on my FH. Spin is really good, And speed is enough. Lifting back spins is easy from FH, but was much better on BH snaps/flicks. Anyway, Super satisfied overall.
I have been using this rubber on my backhand for about a year now. I usually play 3 times per week at a club. This rubber is still in great condition. The control in this rubber is its best characteristic. It is able to create spin as well as block consistently. It has a great feel every hit. The only problem is getting speed on far away loops/hits. It can generate good spin when looping but tough to get high speed. I have been using an allround-wood blade so this may be apart of it. Overall I prefer this rubber to butterfly sriver. It feels alive when hitting and I can trust it to make a shot. I recommend this rubber to players that are looking to learn how to implement high spin and control on the backhand. It will probably be too slow on the forehand.
Really great rubber! I use it with Donic Appelgreen Allplay from both sides. Speed is good enough. Spin is excellent. Very good choice for allround players.
Great bh rubber. Too soft for fh. It is not very soft, but on fh prefer smth harder. Excelent control, flicks, backspin loops.
Soft, lightweight, fast, springy, medium throw, controlled rubber with good spin. I came from hard high throw rubbers like baracuda and MX-P so it took me some adjusting. Very good for driving, not so much for counter looping. I like this rubber but, I miss being a hardcore looper so decided to move on.

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
4/20/2018: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.
Update-31 August,2019-Still feel it's a great rubber,but topsheet is fragile........ruptures easily.But spin is still intact after more than 1 year.Blocks are too good.
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
