I've been really happy with this as someone who is just getting going with table tennis who needed something inexpensive to learn with. The rubber has really nice grip and gives you some good spin and responsive action using basic, solid technique. Would definitely recommend it for new players.

Got mine on Max Black on orange sponge and tested it on a ALL 5ply wooden blade. It's a faster rubber than i expected, both the sponge and top sheet are very hard. it's quite difficult to brush the ball to do a controlled topspin or BH flick if you're a beginner or recreational player. I was expecting it to be tacky so I could use it for BH chopping but it isn't at all. The rubber is heavy and the built quality is excellent, the sponge doesn't crumble and the topsheet doesn't crack around the edges or unglues from the sponge so it should last for a long time. I'm ok with the sponge hardness, but the hard unsticky topsheet is not suitable for my style. I recommend this rubber for beginners and intermediate players with an agressive style who play close to the table with hard flat hits on FH

Not a bad rubber, but I don't personally like it. As I am an upper beginner I have rather a small field of comparison. I can compare it only to my old premade bat and some other cheap rubbers. It has far more kick and better spin than my old premade bat, but it pales in comparison with other available rubbers. For my taste, they are just too soft and not spinny enough. It's good place to start, but I would recommend them only to players who are just starting their table tennis adventure. Compared to their European soft counterparts they seem to forgive fewer errors. During the first hour of training, I got more balls in the table with old and used Donic Quatro A'conda than with Super FX.

average cheap rubber - good for training only
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Put in on a flexible blade like Stiga allround classic and it is a really good rubber with very low Price. Godly rubber. Play it in forehand. Because you have so much control with THE Blade and rubber you can hit harder and harder and which gives high Speed and spin, just focus on technique.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Yes its cheap but unless you're a beginner I found this rubber of little quality. It's hard and bouncy which makes control difficult and hashardly any spin. Looping is very difficult especially when faced with even moderate backspin. Certainly not one for intermediate or better players.

good all-around chinese rubber
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Fast for the room I was playing in. Very heavy too, put it on both sides of an old blade I had which was way more balanced with the previous rubber so that could be on me.

Decent enough spin, good for the price anyway. Probably good for an intermediate player playing in rec leagues looking for a cheap way to improve power. Just make sure you have enough room, looping close to the table is nearly impossible. I am more of a defensive player so this was almost opposite my style but for an inexpensive rubber it's not a bad buy.

made for boosting.when unboosted :very hard sponge with low throw angle,medium distance play is very difficult.I applied 5 layers of Falco and rubber is really very good now.Having played with hurricane 3 neo and skyline tg2 before,i say after boosting it is identical to these.However plays like a rock when unboosted,be warned.

I have been using a lot of more expensive rubbers but Always end up prefering this One. Probably i think i am better then i am. Filled with enough Speed and spin for me. Easy to play against backspin and playing loopes far from table is a breeze. I am using fh red 2,2 and bh black 2,0. Think this rubber is suited for beginners to very demanded platsers!

Good
Review helpful?    Yes | No

The rubber produces much spin, but it pruduces little speed (for me). So, when I do a loop, it's very spinny, but it's slow. However, it maybe good for BH, but it's bad for FH. It's good for flick and have enough spin for serves. The tackiness reduces very fast but it still easily dirty.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

How U can give this rubber speed over 7 in overall ? With what did U compare >? It's very slow rubber. I have Donic Coppa Platin Soft X2, Donic BlueFire M3 and they are much faster. Even pips i was trying Thibar Grass DTecs are faster!
Review helpful?    Yes | No

this rubber is unbelievable, the spin is really "SUPER", the ratings you see posted are very accurate, I am a Tenergy 05 user and I love it, but after months of contemplation I used this rubber and I can confirm that the spin is the same, of course it's significantly slower plus there is no spring, but there is absolutely no shot that is too slow and you can easily return heavy underpin with loads of topspin and with the control you just cannot get from any spring sponge, so it comes down to style, but this rubber really has no fault, it's MUCH better than their Battle rubber - it has a lot more spin and still some more control.... I can't understand why it isn't more popular, I've used lots of expensive rubbers and this is definitely my 2nd favorite, T05 is addictive, I will buy a lot more and stick to it, eventually my T05 will die out and it's just not 10 times better than this. If this rubber cost more, i would give it 4 stars, but at this price it is definitely a 5 star, so much more than I expected from a Chinese rubber

(Black 2.2 on a 5-ply wood blade, forehand)
This rubber is, of course, a great deal. It is also durable and reliable for all your strokes. This is a quintessential Chinese rubber: flat pip structure and a hard sponge that take a lot of energy to activate, relying on tackiness to grip the ball. This means controlled topspin rallies and also reliable, no-spin ball placement in the touch game. Where the hard sponge prevents the ball from digging in, such as in over-the-table play and lifting backspin, the tackiness makes these shots effective. 729 FX will accommodate whatever stroke you need, however flat-hitting is its weakest point: the tackiness slows the ball down.

I actually put this on a mini blade, both sides, and plays surprisingly well given that fact. I have had a chance to use it on a full-sized blade though and it feels very slow. Playing away from the table is difficult. It's plenty tacky though, so serves are spinny, as are loops. You just have to put a lot of effort into your shots. It ain't bad. You could put this on a cheap blade and have a decent racquet that matches up to quite a few pre-made ones.

I am an avid recreational player who also competes at local or provincial tournaments. I have been playing with these rubbers for 3-4 months. I bought them because they where cheap and had high ratings. These are good rubbers in regard to power and spin generation while looping. Excellent choice for counter punchers on budget. They are a tad heavy which I personally have no problem with as it gives more control. The only downside in my opinion is that they are very sensitive to incoming spin. This makes game frustrating for me while playing against loopers and spin-servers.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

I stopped using it after a week. Its hard topsheet and hard sponge on a hard blade made the dwell time practically zero. No spin, no grip. The ball was falling off the blade. Very low throw angle. Only good for blocking. It might work better with a flexible blade. I might got a fake one. Bad rubber even for beginners. If you are on a budget, try Yinhe or Palio rubbers instead
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Good for blocking, countering and pushing... it is possible to generate a lot of backspin while at the same time the rubber is not too sensitive to incoming spin due to the hard sponge... Topspin attackers should look somewhere else.

A good rubber to start for entering table tennis world. Cheap and playable.

Color: Black
Sponge: Blue
Thickness: 2.0 mm (2.8 mm after boost)

As I play TT for fun only, I boost this rubber and use speed glue. This rubber is really beast on looping stroke and counter looping. It also provide decent control on block stroke and provide good control in touch play. The tacky surface can generate so much spin but this is also the double edge when receive incoming spin. IMO I think there are more new generation Chinese rubber which has more spin and speed than this but the blue sponge of this rubber is attractive enough for me to keep playing with it!

very good chinese rubber. good combination with hinoki outer plies blades like Nittaku Clout or other offensive blade..
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Very good beginners rubber, very tacky, not too fast or too powerful. I had it as my first rubber, it lasted for about six months, but it's a good rubber for helping you get into the game.

I was really blown away when i played with this rubber in backhand. Absolute control rubber and its very cheap. only costs Rs.850 in India. I love to play backhand top spin and take initiation in the game. And this rubber has provided me with it. Push will be difficult at times as the throw angle is high but at the same time it you get used to chop it then no one can counter hit. A must for beginners/intermediate players. Perfect control and brilliant amount of spin. Overall 9/10
Review helpful?    Yes | No

First of all this is very cheap rubber and it is worth much more than you'll pay for it. It is not so slow as you might think, spin is ok and control is the best. I'm currently using 1.5 mm sponge and it is just fine. Black rubber with blue sponge is better for forehand. It is quite subtle distinction but it is there. I am two wing looper and loops are easy to perform with my Donic Appelgren Allplay Senso V2 - racket gives medium-high throw. Pushes are great also, blocking is fine but not too dangerous for your opponent. Rubber is medium tacky and a bit heavy but it doesn't bother me much. I' m using mostly Friendship rubbers. Considering the price and quality, buying 10-15 times more expensive rubbers is a waste of money for a recreational player.

Edit: after some time playing with this rubber (now I use 1.8 mm), I still think it is bang for the buck. Maybe just a little slow for match game and not the best for countering topspin. But hey, it costs about 4-5 $

Very Good Rubber! best for moderate level players, very compatible to any kinds of blades in the table tennis market.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

When i glued this rubber to my blade and started to play i just said: WOW! Maybe not very fast but comparing to the price it's an amazing rubber. What i really love with this rubber is pushing. I can get so much backspin! (i use it on bh) When blocking it works but it's hard to do a "perfect" block because the sponge doesn't have really much power, u just have to punch your racket forward to block harder. When i'm blockig i like to take a step away from the table and just put the ball back. So maybe that was a reason for why i didn't really couldn't get in on it first. But when i blocked directly after bounce it was a bit easier.

Very thick and hard top sheet. Very slow rubber. Extremely hard to loop with. Suits chopping and pushing with thin sponge.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

The best allround!
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Great rubber.
But not for me.

It's very slow.
But a hard fullhit make it seem offensive.
Blocks are often low and fast.

Great for push and serves if tecnique is right.

Red sheet have always orange sponge and less tack. Seems very elastic and bouncy. The black comes with orange and blue sponge. The one with blue sponge have more tack and the sponge is harder.
It's especially made for forehand.

Maybe great and very offensive on something like Avalox Blue thunder 555 or 777.

This is a classic Chinese style tacky top-sheet with very firm sponge. The sticky surface makes it easy to impart lots of spin in serves. It is also very sensitive to incoming spin. This may or may not be a good thing. It forces one to be very alert to what the opponent is doing and to respond appropriately. It is easy to loop, chop and push with this rubber. Control is good. Excellent for 3rd ball attack and close to table play. It may be somewhat lacking in loop to loop rallies. When I use it on the FH, I prefer to hit drive the ball into the sponge in order to get speed and control. Hits/drives and loops give a crisp ball impact sensation. There is no catapult effect, so for speed and penetration, there must be good body/stroke mechanics. Hence, it is a good training rubber. The spin can be very high Compared to the latest tensors, it is slow and not lively. Often, players who use this rubber put it on a blade with some flex. Playing away from the table requires much effort. The rubber is cheap and durable.

Great for beginners, very forgiving while looping and yet still moderately fast and spinny. Great control, okay speed and good spin. VERY cheap
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Quite nice for backhand looping. Very easy to loop against backspin. A bit on the heavy side. If you are looking for reasonable spin and exceptional control, this is the perfect rubber.

Easily the best value rubber in the entire market.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

To keep it short, I think it's a great rubber for its equally great price!

I think it's also a very good rubber for the beginners who are learning how to counter serves and spins and control their game, while the rubber is also being applicable in many higher levels. There is smaller amount of speed, however, but control and tackiness may well cover the cost of that fault. All-round players will probably benefit from it more than others, but others can use it until they discover their true rubber.(Or develop a technique complimentary to it)

I am (and will always be) using this cheap but high quality rubber of Friendship 729. The Super FX is quite similar to the GeoSpin Tacky and to the RITC 729. It is a very durable rubber, it could last more than the usual playing hours, unlike other rubbers that could easily wear off. This rubber is not good for beginners though, since it needs an attention of tons of training and getting used to. It matches perfectly with Friendship 729 blades and I use this on both my FH and BH. The feeling of it in the Forehand is quite powerful, especially when its newly cleaned and its tackiness is maintained. It can create tremendous spin, especially when you use some services that consume a lot of spin for the opponent to rebut. Unlike other rubbers, it has a hard sponge which is not the same when it generates its control against rubbers with soft spong!
e. It is a very underrated rubber, but gladly it makes up for its overall gladness. Looping is still a problem when you don't frequently clean it. But it doesn't wear off which is why it could last for months. 5 stars to a cheap good ol' rubber!

consistent play def-attack play. used as my bakchand on hinoki-carbon blade.. whoaa excellent combi, came from tenergy 05 but the control of this cheap rubber is greater.. for my style of play
Review helpful?    Yes | No

A rubber I have experimented with, it is one of those that literally grips the ball and imparts maximum spin. Unfortunately it requires a straight arm chinese style loop technique for maximum ultilization and in the end my technique prefers european or japanese topsheets and sponges. The spin on serves is amazing but of course, you have to be great at reading spin to return opponent's serves with this rubber. A double edged sword, but a good rubber for spin lovers.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Good rubber for beginers, cheap and longlasting. Tackines on black rubber last much longer than on red side, as well as all chinese rubbers. 2.2 shown to be good for spin returning but my opinion is that it could be tackier to be at in class of Butterfly Tackines D or C rubbers. My expirience with it isn't very pleasant so I recommend for first rubber LKT proXP.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Very good rubber! considering how much i had to pay for it.

Speeds up quite a bit when tackiness starts to wear off.

You can do just about anything with the right stroke using this rubber, and it lasts a very long time if you clean it immediately after every use. I recommend very firm wipes with damp (water only) silk.

If you are an olympic player you'll benefit from a faster rubber, but for those who are good, but not great, it is great all round rubber, allowing control enabling counter attack. It is reasonably fast, tacky, spinny but control is its strength for me. I keep coming back to it despite having plyed competitively with a wide range of rubbers of faster and tackier properties. I would recommend it for players of all ages and abilities until you realise your potential. Then you may or may not stick with it. It is also easy to relace as price is low. Have used on fast and slow bats with good effect- recommended- but allthough there are numerous types of 729 the superfx or supersoft are the ones I prefer.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

I don't have a lot to compare this rubber to but out of the rubbers I've tried other rubbers (several $30+ rubbers) but this one I felt a great deal of spin and control and was not slow at all. I didn't rate these above because I don't feel I've used enough rubbers but I do think this is a solid rubber.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Very spinny. Really easy to control.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Really like this rubber.Great for begginers! now ,since I am improving,I dont use it as much because it is quite slow.I use a fasterfaster rubber now.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

for me this seemed like it would suit a heavily offensive player, not myself. put it on a 729 bomb, which made it so i could barely hit the ball and it would easily fly across the table. not so good for defending, too hard of a sponge. great rubber for someone who is offensive and knows how to maintain great control, but just not for me as im more an allround player

great beginner rubber, also sometimes used at higher levels, but sponge is hard not medium.

Very nice rubber for defenders and offensive players.
I guess everyone should try it one time, 'cause you can produce much spin and speed with a low throw-angle.
It's a bit cheaper than other rubbers like that.

This rubber is good for spin I reccomended for every player of any level and for the price you will never get something like this.Very good rubber.
