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.

This was my first backhand rubber and probably one of my favorite rubbers of all time. This rubber is easy to control yet you can still do killing smashes and blocks. I used backhand serves back then and it would pretty much kill my opponent immediately. This is a very beginner friendly rubber and still usable. I recommend this rubber to every beginner to intermediate level player.
Slow, can't produce any spin, too soft sponge, very light, medium throw angle... Speed 6, spin 5, control 7, overall 6/10. Awful rubber in today's era. Only pros is this rubber is spin insensitive (like many Xiom rubbers) so when they serve you heavy spin you can do backhand flick, but not every time because sponge is soft so rubber is inconsistent. They (some people and forums) recommended to me this rubber for BH side because I am beginner but this is useless rubber. I am using now Omega V euro and that rubber is excellent! Omega series rules! Vega sucks!
I think this rubber is good for beginner player. I prefer to play with much harder rubbers. For me its very slow and no catapult effect, so you must to do full topspin move to make ball reach another side of table. But anyway its the easier rubber to make counter topsins

Good rubber in general, not so fast, but with excellent control, all the hits become a simple task with this.
