One of the fastest rubbers as you can buy. The control is fairly good but the spin I think is just average

I've been using this rubber on my Forehand for almost a year. It's absolutely sublime. You can do any shot from straight smashes to short pushes to spinny loops from mid distance to the table. I play roughly 5 hours a week and the rubber is still in pretty good shape; it could last another couple of months I think. This rubber really shines on aggressive attacks and short play. It handles spin really well and can produce a lot of spin itself. I can win a lot of points from consistency and placement. Highly recommended for intermediate players as it requires your own strength in striking the ball.

Got it in 1.9 on infinity vps 5. its a speed rubber with great control, and spin is surprising ok even though no tack. the faster you play, the better the rubber is. The accuracy is a amazing on smashes. == Serves - great / returns - great / loops - ok / blocks - very good / flick - very good / smash - great. It took me awhile to get a feel for it, but once i did my game started to dramatically improve. The great control of the super fast rubber is the best I've played with so far. Can`t go back now super durable, spin does not fade at all. great rubber to play serious pong.

The topsheet looks like an antispin tosheet by it does provide monstruous spin........I have never seen such an incredible topsheet. Its far less sensitive to incomming spin than any other off+ backside but still the topsheet provides tons of spin on serves, top spins, pushes.......
I commend Calibra Tour M on your strong side (forehand usually) in combination with a flexible blade (i use Bty Innerforce AL), you need a blade with good flex, high throw and high dwell time to fully enjoy Calibra tour M amazing feeling and potential. I tried Tour M and Tour H with harder and stiffer blades like Joola Rossi Emotion, Walder Legend Carbon, Mizutani Jun ZLC, none is a good combination, dwell time is ultra low, throw angle ultra low, no feeling at all.
Tour M 1.7mm is faster and more powerfull than my previous FH rubber T80 1.9mm on my IF AL, throw is lower, trajectory longer.

BTW i would gladly appreciate if someone tested Calibra Tour topsheet with the Polyalls ? Does this special topsheet still "work" with Polyballs ? I wonder......

edit : after playing with intensively for about 2 weeks, I can say that the rubber is just playing better and better. still like new, and when I say this I mean REALLY like a brand new. First rubber with "speed glue effect" to be still ok after 2 weeks of my tranning.

Very good rubber for the upcoming intermediate who likes to play strong, spinny topspins close and away from the table. Spin is very good, touch play is easy to master and the rubber is versatile. I got it in 1.9mm and it is quite fast, faster than joola energy xtra. Didn't take long to get used to, and I was soon placing topspins at all angles with ease. Service is easy and you can counter topspins if you have a loose grip on your blade. Not tacky at all so your opponent's spin doesn't bite into it like you would expect. Overall a great all round rubber that's great for offensive looping.

No tacky at all. Almost feels like a dead rubber. But can generate slow controllable backhand loops. Pushes are very good control; underspin is average. Blocks are excellent. Counter-hits are average depending on which blade is used. Forget about power-loops with this rubber. This is strictly a bh rubber

I have it in 1.9mm on a stiga offensive classic carbon.
A very balanced rubber. Very fast, good spin, very good control. After a month or so the spin drops slightly, but it's still very spinny.
I play about 7 hours a week.

This rubber has a very very different topsheet. It feels like someone had pulver on it. Because the spin will be very bad, close to an anti rubber if you don't do anything about it. After cleaning it by breath consistently when i'm playing in about 2 weeks it got an average spin for a table tennis rubber. So the spin is very bad. I hope this will not happend to you, because i didn't opened it up directly when i bought it, i waited about a month. A good thing with this rubber is the speed. It's one of the faster rubbers i've tried. Even if the spin is not a strong part rubber, it is possible to make slow spinny topspins if u have the technique. The consistensy is one of the worst things with this rubber. If you don't clean it regularly, it will lose it's spin really fast.

Tour M 1,7mm is a very good rubber for the backhand, perfect control, perfect smash, perfect flip, good spin.

Remember that It is a special offensive rubber that you must get used to play with this.

With this rubber you can have a perfect block and you can guide the ball at the edges of the table, even that it is only 1,7mm the speed of my attacks is satisfactory (maybe because these rubbers are factory speed glued)

My setup is Butterfly Inerforce zlc, fh: tenergy 2.1 bh: stiga tour m 1.7

For the backhand rubber, which I put the STIGA Calibra Tour M, I can say that this rubber will be much better if you think that DONIC Bluefire M2 is good. STIGA Calibra Tour M is somewhat an upgrade of the DONIC Bluefire M2 I can say. This rubber not only have the control but also the trajectory. Why do I say this rubber suit my backhand? Cause I use the traditional Backhand to push when near table, but as I step back, Ill start to use the reverse backhand. This rubber ensure that the ball will land onto the opponent table with great speed and spin. But I say first, this rubber cannot give u very short balls that is near the net. But if you are a looper or like me a Near table fast-attack player, this rubber will be the best for you. No matter if it is you put it on the forehand or the backhand, this rubber is a great combination of all 3 qualities of speed, spin and most importantly control. I would not say it has the fastest speed nor the spinniest spin, but I would say that the amount of control is definitely excellent, plus the addition of good speed and spin, it is more than sufficient to kill of your opponent with either fast shot or topspin. Plus the weight is somewhere in the middle, comfortable for both Forehand and Backhand. The throw angle wise is also somewhere in the middle, you will find that you will play comfortably with this rubber. I recommend this rubber to all players who want to have excellent control with also excellent spin and speed. This rubber will give a whole new world feeling.

This can be a good backhand rubber but I don't like it as forehand because the surface is completely non-tacky so grip is not a strong point here, it is also very fast

A sp©cial rubber which is efficient for the spin and the control. it has a very good speed and can help you put the ball on the table even if it is fast. Serve and return are very easy. you needn't accustomed with it to play. I have it in 1.9 mm red on a 18.5/20 speed blade, it's a good investment.
