very similar to the Roxon 500, but with the softer sponge, less speed, less spin, and a bit better control. Had it with MAX sponge on Kinetic Suprime OFF and Galaxy K-4 used as FH and BH. As fore hand rubber lacks on penetration/finishing power and spin, doog for BH blocking.

I have it my FH, this is my second sheet, first was2.0mm now its max. Very happy with it. Tryed a lot others (Bryce Speed FX, Hexer and Hexer+, Platin and Platin soft). My forehand prefferance is Roxo450 and Donic Platin, but Roxon has a better control and durability (Platin marginally (if) better spin)

I got this rubber as my first tensor rubber and I must say I was dissapointed. It is simply not up to the same level as tenergy in my book, and it was not durable. It was heavy and did not impart the amount of spin I was hoping, also I never really clicked with this rubber and found myself sending the ball long time and time again as if I never quite got the measure of it. Perhaps I should have given it a second chance but it wore out before I could. Feel free to try this rubber but IMO there are better options and I wouldn't recommend it given that it's not even particularly cheap!

A offensive rubber with good spin and speed

Hitting game is perfect. Spin game a bit lack. The sound is nice.

I have the same paddles with Butterfly T energy 5 and Roxon 450. Definitively after playing for 6 months with both of them Roxon 450 produces more spin while speed is similar. However Roxon's surface tends to wear down after only 1-2 weeks of intensive playing, while T energy 5 is much more durable. When it comes to gears they are similar. So slow, low and spiny loops as well power loops are possible with both of them. Control of the ball when it comes to pushes is better with T energy5, chops behind the table are about the same, however loops 6+ feet behind the table are easier to do with Roxon 450 due to thicker sponge (2.3mm vs. 2.1 with T energy). Overall I would give this rubber 9 or 9.5 as average rating if it had a better durability.

Very good for driving and blocking, but loses its high speed/spin after about a month. It is very difficult to do slow and spiny loops with this rubber.

A new generation of tensor rubbers aimed to solve the problems of the old generation of tensor rubbers : poor short game and poor durability.

This rubber is among the most spinny compared to other tensors since its very lightly tacky. I reckon its a hair spinnier than Platin and about the same as Zeta.

A NEW roxon 450 has incredible speed (as tensors do) and a very good rebound effect (less than previous tensors for better short game though). Slower than the Plasma, but still very fast. The short game is improved, but still nowhere as good as classic rubbers imo.

Blocking with this rubber when paired with the right blade (i believe any hard outer plied blade will do) is incredible and imo the best aspect from this rubber. Fast drives are also good. Other things are all pretty good but nothing special.

However, even though durability has been improved such that the sheet of rubber isn't torn easily, the bounciness of the rubber is obviously less den before after a while (dependent on skill level of user). It is still playable by players whose skill level is not that high yet, but then again, if one's skill level isn't high, i would suggest a slower rubber for a better short game.

If i was made of money this would be a good rubber. In short, its almost a typical tensor and for you to decide if you want it.

This rubber is well suited for agressive blocking and smashing.
it has only little grip, so you do not have to expect it to be spinny. pu shing is bad, as it is not grippy and the ball pops out easily.
you should try other tensors instead

Newer generation of tensors with the emphasis placed on the short game. The 450 really is an improvement to previous Andro tensors in terms of the SHORT GAME.

Everything else, especially counterlooping and the like, Plasma 470 is much better in terms of "glue feel", spin and speed. The 450 is also horrible for thin contact brush loops, thus requiring a 'Euro' loop so to speak.

The 450 works better on harder blades than soft.

The roxon is a pretty fast rubber and is espacialy good for looping,hitting in my opinion.
the sponge is soft to medium soft, and hitting with it is great, the bal goed really fast but is still quite controllable.
when you loop the ball you can create heavy spin.
An overall good rubber i think.

The ROXON 450 is a slight improvement on the plasma 430. The speed, spin and durability of the ROXON are all slightly better than the plasma 430. However, the cost of the ROXON is typically $10US more than the plasma. Also the ROXON does not come with the plastic cover sheets that come with the plasma.

The performance of this rubber would lie pretty close to a sriver with 2 layers of glue. The sheet/sponge combo is very soft but nothing mushy like catapult or mambo. Speed lies between a glued up sriver and a glued up bryce. Throw for such a soft rubber is remarkable coming in at medium to low throw. Not as low as Hammond/bryce series. Unlike some of the older genration SG effect rubbers (desto and catapult) the SG effect feels genuine and with no weird pop ups when doing low speed pushes or drop shots. For serves the rubber is a little too speedy but im sure this is a minor adjustment on my behalf. My first Andro rubber experience..impressive and also affordable (cf. Tynergy 05 the wallet buster!. Oh by the way did i mention this rubber is light as a feather
