I've been using ZGRs for over a year on my forehand but finally decided to switch to a softer rubber early next year. This rubber is really heavy. My most recent sheet is a ridiculous 56g when cut (157/150mm). It's wicked fast but it takes a lot of effort to activate its very hard (57?) sponge. Opening up against backspin is a breeze, counter topspin is also easy because of the hardness. Its hardness also means it has a lot of gears, which means great touch play and over the table shots. Overall, though, it's an extremely demanding rubber and I'm tired of its heavy weight, hence my upcoming change.

Bad rubber. I dont recommend it. It is the worst rubber of dynaryz series. I only recommend trying ACC and AGR. low quality shots

Hard, heavy sponge. Grippy but not sticky sheet. Impressive number of gears.
Similar to V22DE or R53, but more linear and forgiving. I own all 3 and make less mistakes with ZGR. Can be played by a beginner but advanced skills (long, powerful strokes) are required to take the benefits of the sponge. If you want something similar but easier to play with, I suggest Hammond Z2. Softer but linear and grippy too.
ZGR is very fast when the sponge is activated. You need to be active to spin. Surprizingly good control in short game. Service is low, long and fast but not very spinny.
Pairs very well with Joola Trinity, Tibhar JC, and probably any inner ZLC. I also had good results with a BTY ZJK T5000, although control is a little less consistant than inner fibers. You can try a softer blade but considering the expensive price, I think it would be a pity to use it on an all-wood blade.
I use ZGR on FH; with Dynaryz CMD on BH, both max, and that's a perfect match.

Pretty good as a forehand for modern defender playstyle with very soft defensive blades such as joola toni hold white spot. It doesn't chop that well but for all kinds of attacking it's awesome. Pretty low throw and over the table pushes stay low but risk going in to net or over the table if not playing correctly. Mine wasn't tacky, as in sense that it couldn't lift the ball off the table when new, but very grippy. It loses some of it's pop after 2 months, but plays decent after that. It seems to be heavily factory boosted as it played new similar to a well boosted H3N. Propably is a lot harder to control when used with fast carbon blades.

The rubber has some tack but with a very hard sponge. Not sure if it's "tensor" because Joola doesn't specifically list it as such. Playing it has good speed but not for soft shots. You need to compress the sponge to get maximum grip. If you hit a soft or half shot you don't compress the sponge and therefore you need more upward stroke to spin. Since it's so hard on serves I don't have as much feel so I can't control it as much. It has a very low throw angle so it needs good technique to loop. This is definitely an advanced rubber suited more for people who play farther away from the table. However if you are advanced and can take advantage of it's qualities then it would be a great choice since it definitely has great spin and speed.

I have used this rubber on my Classic Kenny Style wooden blade and far prefer it to the Butterfly Dignics05 FH & BH on my Mitzutani Super Jun Carbon blade. I use the ZGR on my FH and found it excellent on defensive short back-spin chops close to the net taking the ball early off the bounce before it reaches max height with a short doward only movement seems to work best and gives great grip and control when opening up a topspin loop attack against a defensive backspin chop that's gone to long or to high. I have real issues with the Dignics 05 rubber in the short defensive game, although it's great with topspin loops but not as good as ZGR in my opinion and will purchase another ZGR to replace my forehand on the Mizutani Super Blade SJ blade before deciding to try it on my BH..

No, i want more spin and control, and the rubber lasted for 2 months playing 2-3 times a week

Melhor borracha que ja usei para o ForeHand
Dynaryz ZGR "preta" "Max" no fore, Viscaria ALC, Tibhar MXD "Vermelha" no back.

Gira muito facil, rapida para o ataque, loop potente, daque extremamente spinny, grip muito bom, smash e chapada bem estranho com ela, pode ser dificil para jogadores de bola reta, para drives, couter, over drive, o melhor que pode encontrar, a esponja rapida e a top sheet tacky fazem combinao perfeita!

Em comparao com as que usei anteriormente
Mxd, mxp, tenergy 05, 80, Hurricane 3 neo, hurricane pro turbo blue, omega 7 pro, a Dynaryz ZGR tem um potencial de giro incrivelmente superior a todas as anteriores, com uma velocidade comparvel a Tenergy 05, porem com muito mais Grip, assim gerando muito mais giro, o toque dela muito mais agradavel que o da Dignics 09c, som do material bem similar ao da madeira q usa, por ser muito duro, tem um som solido, sem muito da disperso do efeito spring das tensionadas mais macias.

It is very fast and highly recommended for an aggressive game. You have to take care of it because it scratches easily. but it is a premium rubber without a doubt

I have used this on a Harimoto IF SZLC. ZGR is hard (57 degree) with extreme catapult effect. Definitely one of the fastest rubbers I have tried. It has a grippy top sheet with minimal tackiness like many of the newer hybrid tensors. It is difficult to control close to the table due to the speed and long arc. But it starts to shine as I go farther away from the table. I can get the balls to the baseline with ease and there is a high margin for error. I favor close to the table attack more, so I will say it is not a rubber for me.

It is decent for serving and short games as well, and great for active blocking (unless you put effort in your blocks, the sponge will be activated). All in all it is monster that requires advanced techniques and a lot of effort to control. Options like Rakza Z or Dignics 09C, or options with higher tackiness: Xiom Vega China or Tau II would probably be better suited.

ZGR is hard (57 degree) with extreme catapult effect. It has a grippy top sheet with only a slight tackiness like many of the newer hybrid tensor. It is similar to O7C Guang. Compared with D09c, ZGR is less tacky and has significantly shorter dwell time due to its catapult effect, so it requires more acceleration to get the same level of spin. But ZGR has more potential.

I felt it was fantastic for serving and short games. It is great for blocking as well, but it takes effort to slow the ball down. For attacking, I felt it was excellent for looping and counter-looping from mid-table and beyond - I feel there is a great margin for error and I can get the balls to the baseline with ease. However, I did not find the same level of safety closer to the table.

All in all it is a great rubber that requires advanced techniques and a lot of effort. I think there are better options for most players, like Rakza Z or Dignics 09C, or options with more tackiness: Xiom Vega China or Tau II.
