I have this mounted on a Xiom AJH TMXI with Tibhar Evo MXS on the BH side. The Joola Golden Tango PS was the biggest surprise of the setup for me. Its a very nice rubber. Its not as tacky as its been advertised here. Its lightly tacky and so far has maintained that tack. The rubber even without the tack I suspect would still be reasonably grippy. The throw is high. I wouldnt say its T05 high but pretty darn high and a pretty safe rubber as far as easily clearing the net with good dive once it clears the net. Spin on serves is good. I wouldnt say its T05 good but quite good. Im not a really strong flat hitter so I cant really speak to how well it does this. It is an excellent looping rubber. I swing more of a Chinese style forehand. This rubber does everything well whether you are brush looping or loop driving. Pushes are good. Its not a terribly bouncy rubber so the short game is pretty easy to have good touch. Theres really nothing bad to say about this rubber. Its easier speed than Chinese rubber, but the swing mechanics are relatively the same. Swing more from shoulder with both rubbers but with Chinese rubbers it requires full effort to get anything out of them. This was my first time with a Joola rubber and I was quite pleased with it. It feels nice. Its great performing and its a pretty good value. I totally will keep it on my bat for quite some time.

Very spinny rubber. Slow for a modern tensor which makes it very consistent easy to play. A bit harder than fastarc g1, which was my rubber before this. More spin but bit slower and a bit less control than fastarc g1.

Compared to Dignics 09C, a little bit softer, lighter, same spin, more control and half the price, it doesn't have the arc of Tenergy 19 but this may be the perfect fh rubber for a hinoki blade.

I never cared for Chinese rubbers because they were always too slow. Joola came out with this Chinese / European hybrid and I decided to give it a try. The topsheet is very tacky, and the throw angle is very high. It's slower than I was used to, but still much faster than the typical Chinese rubbers I've tried. I played with it on my BH and my loops were loaded with Topspin! After playing with it a while I decided to boost it to speed it up, so I used the boost sold by Zeropong and put 2 layers of boost on it. The first layer I let dry for about 14 hours. After that I put another layer on and let it dry for another 12-14 hours. The rubber curled up a little, but I had no problem putting it back on the blade. The boost definitely gave it the extra speed I wanted and I continued playing with it for several months. This rubber is very good, especially for the BH. Your serves, loops, and pushes will be loaded!

(Using this on Butterfly Garaydia ALC with T05 on the other side.) First I bought this to replace my T05 on my FH, I wanted something slower with more control, dwell time, higher arc and a lot of spin, but not lose to much speed. Like a mix between H3Neo and T05. In some very even games I could easily get a little nervous and would miss with T05 as I wasn't always using the right technique. Then I found some reviews online saying this rubber is the best forehand rubber and seemed like excactly what I was looking for.

When I first tried it I found it very easy to find concistency in all my strokes, very easy to grip the ball on loops and create a lot of spin. Also good for serving. For me though it still felt too slow for my forehand and the topspins where quite easy to read for my opponent and easier to block than before with my T05, which isn't strange. So I tried it on my BH instead with T05 on my FH and oh my. It feels perfect! Really good for blocking, pushing, looping and smashing on the BH side. The tackiness combined with the hard european sponge made a perfect balance between speed and control, amazing for snakes and lobbing as well.

So here's my conclusion: Actually like it more on BH than forehand, where I personally want a faster rubber. It's not a slow rubber though. Very easy to grip the ball and create a lot of spin with a medium-high arc. Good for blocking and the close game as well. Like it a lot!

Joola Tango vs Joola Tango PS

I had the chance to test both rubbers on different blades. I always expect testing and using ESN rubbers that are tacky since I am a tacky rubber user. Both rubbers are tacky fresh from the box and they have a sticky surface that you can feel from Chinese rubbers. Both of them seem to have an identical topsheet but they differ in the sponge make up and also the hardness of their sponges. The Tango is 54 degrees while the Tango PS has a 50 degree sponge. The sponge of the Golden Tango is a creamy white colored sponge while the PS version has this pink or purple sponge that is similar to the sponges of the Rhyzer series. In fact, it is similar to the Rhyzer 50’s sponge hardness which is 50 degrees also.

I used the 3 PBO blades for the 2 rubbers – Nobilis, Zelebro and Energon. I used both rubbers on each side just to have a direct comparison and also to check the differences. The Tango PS is outright more reactive than the regular Tango because the sponge is significantly softer and will give you more speed if both rubbers are hit the same way and depth of compression with the sponge is also the same but the regular Tango can be faster if it reaches a certain threshold. It will give you more speed and power once you compressed the sponge enough. Both rubbers are very bouncy on fh-fh drives or bh-bh drives with the Tango PS initially being more bouncy up to some point of sponge compression. I would say the speed of the Tango regular is the same with the Rhyzer 50. If not for the tackiness of the regular Tango, I think the Tango can be faster but it is limited to a point because the rubber is tacky. The PS version is slower than the Rhyzer 50 despite having the same sponge hardness or identical sponge makeup. Again, tackiness of the topsheet is the one that causes the reduction in speed. On harder shots like smashes or loop drives, the regular Tango definitely gives you more speed and power. What I like with both rubbers is that both are easier to smash with compare to a commercial untuned Hurricane 3. The 2 Tango rubbers seem to have factory boosting. With their speed it is not hard to assume that both have tuning on the sponge. For smashing, the PS version is easier to smash with.

If we will be talking about spin, generating spin with both rubbers are easier compared to Hurricane because of the bounciness of the sponge. The Hurricane 3 commercial version has this deadness in the bounce and also has a tackier surface resulting to decreased energy transfer from the sponge to the ball there reducing also the rebound speed. With both the Tango versions, there is significantly more power transferred which helps in generating spin easier for topspins. The PS version is the easier rubber to produce spin if you are the type to compress the sponge more and with less brushing. The regular Tango version can give you more amount of spin if you have developed a brushing technique that is above intermediate level. The regular Tango will reward you with more spin even with just brushing the ball thinly while the PS version will give you an easier time to produce spin but it involves the sponge also. The regular Tango has a lower arc than the PS version when looping the ball. In short, the PS version is more forgiving when it comes to looping underspin because it is easier to handle and can clear the net easily because of its medium arc. The regular Tango version when used right can has a good low-flying loops which are harder to block than the PS version.

For serves, the regular Tango is indeed has more spin as you can feel the ball easily gripped by the topsheet. For underspin pushes, again the regular Tango is also spinnier. Both rubbers are excellent with dropshots as both can give you short, low returns that are easy to control. For blocking, due to the softer sponge, the PS version will give you better control and handling when returning strong topspin attacks. The regular Tango give a faster and more powerful rebound on blocks once the topspin get stronger and when you are blocking with it, the balls bounces quickly and for some lower level players, it is better if they use the PS version.

All in all, the regular Tango is awesome if you have the right amount of skill to use it. I would suggest that it will be used by advanced level of players while the PS version can be used as early as an intermediate level of player because it is easier to use.
