You can do anything with this rubber, but at a subdued level since it only comes in 1.0mm. Touch and control is fantastic. Great for defensive player.

This is a good control rubber. With the right type of blade, can block the hardest ripped shots with good touch and placement. Drives and loops are consistent, although notably slower than a rubber like Mark V or Sriver. This rubber is a good choice if you play close to the table or for backhand only. The shots lose some power when you step back from the table (although most of this is probably due to the Gambler Kevlar Oversize blade), but the consistency and ease of placement from mid-distance is good. I have not been as consistent at mid-distance using the 729 rubbers on the same blade.

I bought this to replace the dead inverted rubber that came with a pre-assembled racket from Dick's Sporting Goods. Big difference! I love this rubber, the feel is good and can mount a pretty decent attack with good control. It's best for flat hits and blocks, good for return of serve. I can spin with it, but not as well as a friend who uses Sriver. I think it's great for beginners that need to develop their strokes before moving on to the faster and spinnier rubbers.
