It is good rubber for backhand, speed not ridiculously high, but gives good spin and good control, currently using it for reverse penhold backhand, close to table attacks are sharp, when at mid to far distance from table similae shots can also be made and doesn't feel powerless, lifting against backspin can also be easily done with the correct stroke, very nice japanese rubber with great catapult effect overall, too bad I heard that they are discontinuing the mantra line
Using 2.1mm on my backhand on a Stiga Carbonado 290. This rubber works well, easy to use. I previously used Tenergy 80 2.1mm on a Primorac EX, and this feels pretty similar, if not more spinny. Looping is a breeze, serves are very spinny, blocking is easy. I highly recommend.
Good BH rubber. Average offensive rubber with no X Factor but it does the job well 98% of the time. Between the MXS and MXP style of play. If you like those rubber shut want more control and less speed than the MXP but more than the MX-s get this.
Used on a Stiga Carbonado 290 on the backhand. My previous blade and rubber was the Primorac EX and Tenergy 80, so this will be compared to that. Ideally I'd have used the Tenergy but that is about 2.5 years old so in the future I will update this review if/when I replace this rubber. The main reason why I did not purchase another Tenergy rubber was because of price and because I recently started playing table tennis again. I figured this to be the best alternative for me so I gave it a try. Service is very good and I can generate a varied amount of spin. This rubber also does well in the short game, as it has a lot of feeling and control. Backhand loops were also high quality, even though my technique is unpolished. I did not work on many flicks during my practice with it. Compared to the Tenergy 80, I do not think it is as fast, even if the Tenergy were on the same blade. I'd purchase this rubber again, however, as I am enjoying the results it gives. oh em gee dis rubb so gud i lik it and use it all tim
Niesamowita guma na backhand jeeli masz dobr technik i umiesz szczotkowa to ta guma jest dla ciebie polecam to
Very good rubber, Best in the market, very high error margins, easy to play. Control is very good so fast blocks/punches are easy. It is not much tacky but works good. Mantra is better than tenergy.
This was my first rubber I ever cut and applied to a blade (Stiga Pro Carbon). I instantly noticed that it was more grippy and powerful than any pre-made racket I have ever bought at the sports store. I was suddenly able to loop effectively and my serves were way more powerful. It also felt like the ball would fly off this rubber, like I didn't need to do as much work as before. Stiga has always been my brand since I began playing, and this rubber gives me confidence that Stiga not only makes good beginner stuff, but also rubber to bring me to the next level. Thank you, Stiga
Perfect backhand rubber, compatible with many blades. Well suited for modern table tennis. Control in backhand to backhand rallies is perfect. Flicking serves is easy. Topspinning is great, also in second position. It will lack some punch further away though.
I played with Tenergy 05 before getting Mantra M. Apart from the slightly cheaper price Mantra M is worse in every way. It doesnt spin as well and the speed is there, but it just doesnt feel right. Also Ive only been playing a couple weeks and the quality of the ruber has faded. So even though its cheaper does it even matter if I have to replace it more often.
This is one of the best Stiga's rubbers. Just buy one and play with it and it talks about itself. Enjoy!
Surprising for me, its very -very good rubber. Very good speed and control, grippy topsheet. Its good rubber for aggressive -offensive players. Middle, middle -high throw angle. I play with Tibhar MX-P, and this rubber is very good alternative to him.
