Tried my friends AR+ Donic racket with this rubber. This is a very light and soft rubber therefore u get the highest control. U can put fair amount of spin as well witch was a bit surprising for me at first. Blocks and service returns are very easy. It totally lacks offensive potential. Probably not usable on higher levels.

Decided to switch the Palio CJ8000 rubbers on my Palio Expert 2 bat for something softer to help my looping and topspin shots generally (I'm an improving intermediate player).

My instinct was definitely right!! I'm now landing far more of my shots on the table, blocking is far more accurate and controlled, and because the rubber is non-tacky, my short game is much better and less sensitive to incoming spin, although I can still generate a good amount of spin on serves.

I only wish I'd been less conservative with the sponge thickness I chose (1.8mm), as it feels a little underpowered - but that's probably the Palio blade which is slow. Once I've chosen a faster blade I think this will be a good rubber to develop my game before I move on to something faster.

Very nice playing characteristics. Speed there when you need it (tad slower than F3 Big Slam). Offers nice spin capabilities (tad more than F3 Big Slam). Very nice control rubber. Blocks very well and ball placement comes easy. Very nice rubber to play with. Not a whole lot of difference when compared to Formula Donic F3 Big Slam.

I love this rubber. I am an allround player, with very good ball control. I use a quite fast blade, and this rubber gives very good speed, while still giving very good control.

It gives a very good feeling of the blade. it is also very reliable, lending to very consistent loops, pushes, chops, lobs, blocks, and everything else. The only downside is the sponge is too soft for the forehand, and it bottoms out, especially when smashing.

I have played with like 2 rubbers on my forehand before getting vario big slam (black 1.8) and i love this far best -
1) Distinctive crack sound on counters
2) Feed back on the blade as soon as you hit , flat smashes comes great
3)With a decent looping technique this rubber is great both for close as well away from the table loops
4) Great for short server flicks
5) Great speed on counters , which i didn't expect reading the reviews

A good rubber for an offensive forehand. Good arc providing more opposition table for loopers. It therefore nicely consistent when used with strong top spin. Flat smash consistently with satisfying "Crack" when hit with enough force. Have found consistency suffers a little on chop (but I can probably put that down to poor technique coupled with this being a slightly more lively rubber than I'm used to). Currently enjoying this product very much.

Works great when combined with a fast, stiff blade. Great control from loops all the way to pushes, just not as much spin and speed as I had hoped for, it's still there though.
