Physical:

Very soft rubber, red sheet comes with orange sponge. It looks quality like most esn products. Sponge has some pores on it but they are not large. It I light rubber also with high grip and no tack. Pack is ok, class below Xiom maybe even two classes.

Spin:

Solid spin on openers. It is very easy to do slow spinney opening loop versus serve or longer push. As you go back off the table more effort is needed but nothing to worry about unless you play at very high level.

Speed:

On a slower side here. It is not bouncy even on over the table shoots. Off the table you need some body to finish off the point. All in all sort of an all-round attacking speed, best used to set up big shot with FH then to try to dominate with the sheer speed.

Control, throw angle and other:

Control is very high. It is not bouncy rubber and since it is very slow and soft placement with spin is superb. Throw angle for me was on a low side but I am used to much harder sharper rubbers so maybe others would find it different.

Recommendation:

To all developing players who work on placement and lifting under spin to set up their attack. I would also recommend it to players who like to control points instead of overpowering their opponents.

Best of all to you all and have fun playing.

This is a rubber for a beginner. I don't find it spiny or fast. To sum up, it is an okay rubber.

Plasma 380 is an excellent all around rubber with excellent control.
One of the better looping rubbers out there. No problem creating spin with Plasma.

Andro 380 reminds me of an attempt to improve Donic Desto F3. It's targeted at the same segment of control/developing players, yet at the time, used a newer generation of ESN sponge technology. If I recall correctly, F3 was updated to this generation. This rubber makes looping from close to mid effortless, although it does not seem well suited to over the table looping (too bouncy). Similarly, push and chop are very bouncy and take some adjustment from classic rubbers. While the speed glue effect and sound were pretty good, I was actually disappointed that this rubber was a bit too fast for what I was looking to do with it (Allaround beginner-intermediate play on a Stiga Allaround Classic). I was unhappy also with how fast the rubbers deteriorated, in terms of topsheet, wear, spin production and resistance to impact. If you can get the rubber on clearance or special below $30 it's a good buy. If you're paying more than $30, you may find that F3 (for control) or Joola Green Energy (for power) suits you better.

The andro plasma 380 is a very good rubber, it has outstanding controll and the feel is very good.
The sponge is pretty soft and grippy which makes it easy to create spin and take on loop balls.
Its no speed monster bit its fast enough, its a rubber for beginners , allrounders our offensive allrounders who like a control based game, attackers could better use a faster rubber to finish off rallys with more ease since it might lack some power but the plasma 380 is a good rubber from andro

offensive: very consistent and controllable because the throw angle is quite high. As it is a fast rubber, you have to put a lot effort in your top spins in order to make them fast. yet you top spins will be very spinny.

defensive/short game: not good. it is very difficult to play the ball lowly, because ht soft sponge makes the ball fly high automatically. -> backspin balls won't be too spinny.

serves: similar to short game

recommended to: offensive players who like controlled offensive, not an all out offensive

Oh yes! This is a great rubber. Most people will probably think it's a tad slow. But it depends what blade it's paired with. I have these on an Andro Super Core Kinetic OFF+, which is quite stiff, so it really eats into the ball. The tensor effect of the plasma series is great. When I unload with this rubber, I bet the neighbors think someone just got shot! "Crack!". The throw angle and spin make it very easy to touch table on aggressive forehands. The rubber plays a little dead on blocks though. This would be a great rubber paired with a hard blade and someone who plays a controlled looping sorta game.

Good rubber for slower controlled looping.
