I use this rubber for FH chopping and attacking, but mostly chopping. (1.8mm)
I find it very easy to control my chops and make my attacks go over the net. Recommended for begginers/intermediate players.

Was playing with Spinlord marder and wanted to try something even cheaper as I play a lot. I perfer soft rubber so I ordered this. I was disappointed at first because this rubber is very hard and calling it soft is a joke. However as a close to table blocker I love this rubber. I have in a 1.2 and it is very controlable with lots of gears. Awesome for control and placement. I found it to be average in serving, it is spinny but nothing special. The low throw makes this awesome for close table play. If it is as durable as others say it will be my go to rubber.

I wanted a more controlling rubber, this is very good for the money. I put it on Dr Neubauer Barricade blade making it one of the slowest setup but if I execute shot correctly, ball goes very fast.
Short pushes got better, backhand and forehand flicks got better, loops are very forgiving. Put more effort in your swing to get the best, fast and low loops. Very good setup for a learning player. USATT- 1450

Very durable rubber, good spin! great for BH!
Review helpful?    Yes | No

This is what I would expect an average rubber to be. Not too tacky, spinny, or fast. But definitely tacky, spinny, and fast enough.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

As a beginner i used this on my forehand. I found many of my topspins going into the net. serving was amazing.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

NOT SOFT, more Medium. VERY VERY SLOW and we talkin bout a max rubber.

Ball doesnt go over the net even with a regular stroke using an OFF+ blade (epox donic topspeed)
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Good for beginers, speed and spin are ok. Control is good. Not a bouncy rubber.

Ok, I've played with this rubber long enough to give decent review about this rubber (both black and red).

First, apart from the stamp, the black and red didn't feel like the same rubbers at all. Black is tacky, and red is not tacky. Not less tacky, but not tacky at all.

Red has low gears, black doesn't. With drop shot, you can pinpoint where exactly you want the ball to be with red, but for some strange reason, I can't do the same with black. With the exact same reason, red is much much better at flicking over the table. Even backspin ball is so much easy to flick with red, just like flicking poly ball (and I'm playing with celluloid ball during the time of this review).

Both can do decent push and keep it low.

Looping away from the table with red also have lots of "feel" than with black, although both can do the job right. Again, looping backspin with red is so much easier than with black.

Driving with red feels so nice and sharp. Didn't bother to drive with black, mainly because black is tacky.
I think what makes red and black so different is the "feel" you got in red. This "feel" makes you have total control in your strokes, which is a very good thing for me. I'd rather have rubber with full control than with full spin or speed. I'm playing penhold, and currently using 729 FX super soft RED in FH.

Basing on my positive view about this super soft, I tried 729 FX lightening. Bad idea. 729 FXLightening, even the red one, didn't have the "feel" that makes 729 FX super soft red difference.

Because this is a cheap rubber, there is a huge possibility that their quality control is very poor, so one 729 FX super soft can vary greatly with another 729 FX super soft. It is also possible that I got bad black rubber, or got a special one of a kind red one.

Really like this on my BH, the light tack is helpful for generating spin with a smaller stroke. Also pretty forgiving and consistent, really good for blocking but also decent looping and enough speed to finish the point for sure if well executed.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

This is a very friendly rubber. It gives you a lot of spin because of its tackiness. Very good control, loops with specific placing. The speed is not good... but overall nice and cheap for beginners.

I am currently using the black version of this rubber on the FH and am about to replace it as I have simply worn it out. I play at a club 3 hrs a day and it lasted for about 6 months, although there is still a little zip left on my shots.

I suggest this rubber be used for all-around game as it is very good for CONTROLLED LOOPS, although it loses some of its performance after a month of constant playing. It's also great for an amateur as it doesn't require much drilling to get used to.

Although, I didn't particularly like it as I play an offensive game and it didn't help with making my quick close-to-the-table-attacks faster.

All-in-all, you should expect a stable, grippy and soft rubber if you happen to buy one.

In combination wth a fast carbon blade this rubber demonstrates its real potential! Very annoying topspin trajectory for the opponent! The ball literally dives after the bounce!
I really like it!

slow rubber
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Why all people say that this rubber is light and soft? I take it at 2.0 and max, all are heavy and hardness is medium. Rubber have 35 degrees mark, but it's not soft! May be in 1.5 mm it has different characteristics.
Update: 2mm red = 41gr cut weight, 2mm black = 47 gr!! It's not wrong, it's true! Very big difference, because rubbers were purchased from one magazine at one time.
Good with Stiga Off Classic.

I've tried this rubber on Donic Waldner Black Devil. Black Devil definitely very hard controlled blade with almost zero dwell time. So if you make combination with this rubber (2.0 or 1.8) with very hard blade, it will become perfect combination (we have more controll on stroke). No matter with arc, if you can feel the ball then it will become easy to touch the table.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

tried this on a fast OFF + carbon blade. control is good and speed is fast when you hit fast. how ever it lacks spin -unlike BTY or DHS. price is Good for developing players. good for developing strokes before upgrading to spinier rubbers.

Very good backhand rubber for an ALL player.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

This is very good and cheap.
The topspins don't have a great arc, but you can hit bery low balls with this rubber and they will still hit the table.
Very good feel also for blocking game and returning serves.
When you hit a good one it will make a plich!!! sound.
It is also very light.
Very good rubber over all and the price is also amazing.
I use it with water glue so no speed glue but still I'm happy with it.
Doesn't seem to be very good for an away from the table topspin game because it has a lack of speed.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Good backhand rubber. One with the most control I have tried. I've tried about close to 20 rubbers by now, mostly chinese and a few european and jap rubbers. It is slower than most rubbers but still has enough speed to finish the point. I'm using it on an off- blade. Spin is also very good. One of my favorites among the rubbers I've used.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

nice rubber for beginner.. good control, slow speed, good spin..
2.0 mm sponge is the good choice for this rubber..
Review helpful?    Yes | No

I have always used a friendship 1.5 for my backhand.
I used to have the "original". Now I use this "SuperSoft" and I would not change this rubber for anything else.
Once you are used to it, with this rubber you can do anything with excellent control, smash, loop, chop, block, good serves .
I am an attacking player!!!
Review helpful?    Yes | No

i got it in 2.2mm it is good for chopping. but for all out attackers like myself it was crap. its not good for smashing at all. ok loops but they have no kick when they hit the table. i wouldnt reccomend this rubber for anyone

It good for blocking away from the table eithout sacrificing any power
Review helpful?    Yes | No

One of Freindship's most underrated offerings. Often overlooked in favor of faster, less controlled rubbers. Very light. Superb touch. Very forgiving and good for close to the table play. In the speed glue days, this was a drop-in replacement for Mark V GPS and Sriver FX. Even without glue this is surprisingly good for over the table shots, especially fundamentals like block, drive and counter. Loops reasonably well. Allows you to put more into your stroke without worrying about missing the table. Serves better than many Japanese or European rubbers, due to the combination of soft sponge and tacky topsheet.

This rubber is alright for beginners who need lots of control with minimum speed but for anyone who can actually hit the ball this is way too slow
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Cheap but it performs!

Have played the supersoft 729fx on and off for 3 months and I must say that had this been rubber sold under a japanese or euro brand, this would have cost $45, easily!

The rubber has very good control and has a mid-high throw. Not overly tacky but spins on serves are spinny enough. It's an all around rubber - softer, quite cheaper version of Sriver IMO.

Have not played with a glued FX yet, but overall - this is definitely an RITC classic.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Good rubber for beginners. Super soft, and slightly tacky - not a very good rubber for an offensive player. At best it's an All- to All rubber.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Without glue or boosters, this rubber feels like that dodgy stuff that comes with the dumlop premades (bottom of the range too).

It may work for choppers, but for a serious attacker who aren't just playing for others' mistakes, you'd need something faster and spinnier.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Very spinny & controlled, but really slow. Good for a up close control game for beginners.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

I've only tried this without speed glue, but it's definitely slow with a very soft sponge.
