I'm a Cpen player using a YEO7 blade and I'm currently using this rubber on the BH side and this rubber suits me pretty good, since I'm self-teaching my technique is not very developed, still I'm able to make good quality shots, topspin and looping is easy, due to is a medium soft rubber you can perfectly feel the ball and place it wherever you want, blocking is automatic, making flicks it's a little bit difficult because you need to have a good acceleration and feeling, otherwise the rubber may feel lack of power, but in a close-medium distance to the table its a wonder, you can generate tons of spin with fair speed, although is not a fast rubber you still have plenty power to make a killer shot, the transition to defensive to offensive game is not complicated thanks to the control and confidence this rubbers provides.
If you are looking for a rubber with plenty of control and enough power to win the point or a rubber to develop your technique confidently you can't go wrong with this one.
I do not recomend this rubber to play far the table unless you have a pretty good technique or a high-speed blade otherwise it won't generate enough power to complicate your rival and they can easily block or counter you shot

Andro HP SFX is good in blocking, loop and receiving but a bit slower than R47. I glued it on a Hinoki / ZLC fast blade FH, Very user friendly.

A lil faster than Hexer grip sfx but the spin almost the same. Good weight and the control is really good.

I use blade Yinhe Galaxy T8-s.
Right handed & offensive style.

Rubber AHPGsfx for my FH & R47 for BH.
Very good set-up for me.

AHPGsfx has amazing max spin & control.
Speed is not my main concern, due to my blade is having it a lot.
Always return a short & long ball with perfect direction as my target.
Chop block is great as well.

Price is good enough, compare to other brands for sure.

Overall, this rubber is amazing.
Worth to have.

Keep moving !

UPDATE from 09/2020: Still "THE spin-monster" with outstanding control !!! - the current overall assessment of this rubber is completely underrated. The Hexer Powergrip SFX can be found at the same spin level, as the Grip SFX. ... and beyond that, both rubbers are also significantly faster than specified. I am constantly testing new (different) rubbers, but in the end I have to keep stating, that this rubber is simply excellent, definitely one of the best medium rubbers at all !!! After a long test phase with various rubbers (see addendum at the end!), on various woods (Carbon, ALC, SZLC), I can finally finish my odyssey. In recent years, I have played no rubber, that has produced so much rotation. (- maximum a Tenergy 05!) My black one, with 1,7 mm sponge, weighs ("extra light" selected) 94 g packed and 61 g uncut ! (- normally it is about 5 g heavier !) Since 18 month now, I play (in the end again and again) the Powergrip SFX !!!! ... with a weight of 43 g (156 x 150 mm), on a stiff and hard ZLC blade with koto outerplies. In my opinion, the speed of the Powergrip SFX is only less higher, as by the Grip SFX. But the spin of both is equally outstanding, as well as the control. I had also tested the following comparable rubbers: ( - sorted by speed, in parenthesis the weight on my blade.) 1. Andro Rasanter R 42, 2 mm (45 g), 2. Gewo Nexxus EL Pro 43, 1,9 (41 g) 3. Joola Rhyzm-Tech in 2 mm (45 g) and Andro Bluefire M2 in 2 mm (45 g), 4. the DHS Gold ARC 5 with 42,5 in 2 mm (43 g) or in max. (45 g) The 3 Andro rubbers delivers the most spin.The Gewo Nexxus, Joola Rhyzm-Tech and the Gold ARC 5 produces round about the same spin. ... but together with the Butterfly Rozena and the Bluefire M2 they produce all less. Conclusion: Ultimately, none of these rubbers generates so much rotation and has such an outstanding control. ( - like both Hexer SFX rubber !!!) I can only recommend to anyone to try them.

This rubber is inbetween the Hexer Grip SFX and the regular Hexer Grip. It offers slightly more speed than the Grip SFX while maintaining a similar amount, yet slightly less, grip and control. I feel it lacks a bit of power to really kill balls (compared to most of the modern, harder tensor rubbers at least) due to the softer sponge and topsheet. Think this is a great rubber for players who focus on a controlled, spin based game.

It is very good for spinning and blocking. I can block any smashing and topspin balls from my partners more than 80% .When I make backspin , They cannot lift from the net as usual.

My first impression after I put APGsfx on my Carbonado 245 blade, it was a little bit heavy I was pair with Yasaka Valmo on the backhand wing approx 189 gr. Well if it's really heavy what do I want to say. This morning I played close to the table, WOW amazing, blocking is very nice, counter attack is powerfull, smash is hardy fast, spin is very easy and really magic, I got extra spin feeling. I judge it is more powerfull than T05 hard and I give 95 for speed and 97 for spin, control 10. Please do not miss to try.
