Rubber does not match the price. Fast, spin is much lower than Xiom VE, Tibhar FX-P. Good only for block and flat attack.

soft and slow. only good at blocking.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Rubber with unique characteristics and I would say that it is uncommon, soft foam but fast and firm but with a medium low shot, good to crush and hit hard, use to the maximum in Yasaka on the start impulse + I think it is too fast, the next Once in 2.0, even if it does not produce a lot of spin and is very delicate, it will compensate the control and the excellent feeling, it will be my permanent rubber for fh, after 5 months of use I have improved the rating of this rubber, update now I think that is very good for fh does not generate much spin in services but great control in fast serves, blocking, the topspin is relentless if you hit hard generates a lot of spin, compensates the weaknesses with these special characteristics

Subjective-Worst rubber I have ever used. Objectively speaking-1.8mm on front and back. This rubber lasted maybe 2 months. Topsheet and sponge were both gone at that point. The push game was pitiful. Spin/control were fine, nothing to write home about. In 1.8mm speed was lacking. Very very reactive to spin. Blocking was very difficult with this rubber. Softest sponge I have ever seen. Overall I would not recommend ever.

Has the speed you can accelerate and the softer sponge makes the ball easier to block and control. I would compare this rubber to DONIC Baracuda Big Slam with the same amount of speed and spin. Proper technique is very important when using catapult rubber of this caliber.

My favorite soft rubber! What I like the most is that they almost sound exactly like rubbers during the speed glue era. They are very soft which gives the ball a nice catapult effect with good control and feel. They are pretty fast which makes it easy to change between backhand and forehand quickly. A spiny and good rubber on most areas.

The rubber is too bouncy

Well done by Stiga. Great BH rubber, with much of a Haifu feel to it. If u used Donic traction soft this will feel more or less the same thus comparison with Haifu.

All else is said here about it.

Recommendation on BH side to most players but absolute beginners.

Enjoy and have fun :).

The long trajectory is amazing. Speed, spin and control are balanced. The hitting sound it creates makes you feel more aggressive in a way. Used this on my bh, max.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

I've been using this in max thickness on an all+ blade for maybe six months. Throw is low, top sheet is grippy but not extremely so, sponge is pretty soft. Out of the package it's very crisp and loud and fairly fast considering the soft sponge. That lasts about two weeks and for the next four weeks it's all that but less so and that's about all I get out of a sheet, maybe 5-6 weeks. This is a good rubber that I would rate more highly if it was better at looping underspin. Against underspin it's not very predictable, some balls land on the table and others feel like they "catch" on the top sheet and go way long. So for backhand it's ok but not suitable for forehand, at least for me.

Good for mid-distance attack, loop, topspin, block and serve. Could be to soft for smashing however if timed early stroke is effective. I would recommend this rubber for a club/ advanced player for it's full potential and choose no less than 2mm sponge thickness. However overall I think the Calibra LT is better but Overall good rubber.

This is not a rubber for hard-hitters, but if you use spin and feeling to get the ball on the table, this rubber is the best.
It's the loudest rubber i've ever played with.
The control is the best i know, spin is awesome, and speed is just enough for an allround-offensive game. Good for the developing player or players that likes control, spin and soft sponge.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Very soft, yet fast rubber. Wish the durability was better, but that's always an issue with rubbers this soft. LOTS of spin, ball sinks into sponge and has good dwell time.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

very good rubber. speed is great, but has a big delay do to the soft sponge. spin is good. control is great once u get used to the delay & bounce. weight is super lite. overall great buy
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Great FH rubber for those who prefer a lower throw angle. Good spin/speed ratio with average control and soft touch. Light. Fast. Great for fast loops, counterloops and smashes. Blocks fantastic. Plays well at mid & far distance too.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

I used this on my friends paddle so I can't give that accurate information but I think this rubber is incredible!
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Just discovered this one! And believe me or not but this is THE one! Very versatile rubber! Excellent FH rubber!
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Great feeling rubber. Can block anything. I use it on backhand of a Stiga Clipper, and I tell you it can block any spin, any speed, from almost any impact; it takes all the pop out of any opponent's attack. Great gripping feeling when attacking (both drive and loop). Could be more spinny, but not a big drawback. Makes less sound than my Calibra LT does actually, but on the toughest attacks does return a very woody-sound (probably b/c of my wood blade, but still). Also it is quite deceptive on attacks; the ball jumps off this rubber and surprises opponents. The throw angle is pretty high, which takes some getting used to, but isn't a drawback. Highly recommend it.

This rubber is wonderful. Very fast and amazing control. Helps keep the bat weight down, love this quality very much. Makes a loud sound when you hit well. I use this on my FH max black on Bty Zhang Jike. Truly wonderful rubber, love the speed with which you can loop, excellent control. Best value for money. Will try Calibra LT next when my Tenergy 05 dies. Highly recommended.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Fast rubber with great control, sound when hitting a topspin is simply (fun) ... at first I thought it was even faster, so used it on my forehand but levels of rotation and speed of the ball was not enough to throw off my opponents, now use my backhand and experience significantly improved, control is very good and in a bachhand smash speed is adequate, although the sound is not the same.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

The sponge is sooooooooooo brittle you'll only be able to glue it ONCE, after that if you want to remove it you're almost certain to ruin the sponge and makes it useless

The only quality of this rubber : it is light, it's NOT fast and it's NOT powerful, ok it's noisy, but that's it.

Its one of the best rubbers i have ever used...I used Calibra sound on my BH and i am awesome on blocks with it...I highly recomend it....
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Fast ,high spin rubber, good control. Seems to suffer from edge crumble(black sheet). Using it on offensive + blade with better results for myself on forehand side of play. Had Calibra on both sides of the bat but found it too fast. So taken off sheet of Calibra LT. Overall I think the Calibra rubbers are very impressive, you just need the handskills or slower blade! to use them to maximum effect.Rubber is very capable in short play as well.

Best rubber on the market followed by T05 and Palio Thors or Tibhar Sinus-is a brillant rubber and this is evident from the second you open the wrapper.

very good
Review helpful?    Yes | No

I love the dull, deafening sound it produces. Calibra LT sound never fails you and boosts your confidence and versatility to a higher level. Just put your passion for the game and it does the rest. An overall rubber made for high-aiming performers.

cheaper and lighter version of tenergy = bargain

Absolutely awesome rubber! Awesome spin, speed and great control! Much easier than Stiga Boost IMO.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

I've played Calibra LT sound on almost any kind of blade: fast-stiff, fast-flex, slow-stiff, slow-flex. It's a very good BH rubber if you drive and block mainly, the throw is very low and the spin is null. I really do not understand how people can state LT sound is a spinny rubber!
On the other hand is surely the fastest rubber on the market

this rubber is out of this world i use to play with mendo energy on stiga nano all+ blade but now i play with my gambler arlyte-carbon blade and stiga calibra lt sound 2.0 and it works wonders the spin the sound and the speed is really nice good job stiga
Review helpful?    Yes | No

It seems amazing out of the wrapper and then the speed and spin drop slightly and plateau after about ten hours of use.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

In my opinion

this is not best rubber but is very good to play with.

I prefer stiga Boost Tx and Boost Tc than stiga calibra LT sound Thanks the rubber control and spins of these rubbers .. However, The calibra LT sound is perfect who play offensive style only.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

It is really a rubber with a lot of in built glue effect ! Not good at all for pushing the ball, only for topspin or flat hitting.
Really very nice sound (plop!) like speed glueing !
Only for attacking style of play !! I play a red 2,0 mm on a Donic Waldner Carbon wood.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Same as Claibra LT but softer sponge giving better control and making it more suitable for a BH. i found it easy to block with LT Sound on my BH. Also BH loops were more spiny because of the more dwell time this rubber offer
Review helpful?    Yes | No

very like this rubber
loop
smash
hit easy for beginner to pro...
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Fast, and extremely soft-sponged. Makes the most ridiculous glue-effect noise I have ever heard. Even louder than F3 Big Slam.

Speed is good, blocking good. Looping is really nice from distance, and it's not so bouncy, so the short game isn't too tricky. The latest generation of tensors all seem to be less bouncy.

The only problem I had was the throw angle seems to be very low on smashes. So, all of my hits away from the table went straight into the net at first. Just need to stick with it for a few hours, and you will adjust.
