Good product

Speed is fast, spin is poor. Control is average. Sponge feels soft, and durability is not good. Looping is great on a high-flex blade. Really fast on a stiff off+ rated blade. But spin on both blades is the same.

not my favorite, expecting more speed and less spin.

Just replaced Yasaka Fusion with Xtend HS on my backhand. Xtend is noticeably faster, which is what I was after. Blocks ok, although can react to spin and speed, so is more like an attacking rubber when close. Step back one step, and you have really good control. Has good hitting power, and is pretty good at picking the ball up for a backhand topspin, including soft loops. The advertising talks about a special sound it makes, and they are not exaggerating. It actually does make a very satisfying "wok!" sound when you give it some force. This was first day, so perhaps it will change over time, but so far, it was been a nice step up from the defensive style of Fusion, into a more attacking, fun rubber.

Low throw angle and good rebound makes this a true close to the table rubber. Makes a slap sound to a flat hit but needs real work away from the table.
Counter hitting needs control but counter looping and early third ball attack is a dream.
Ball loads with top spin but again away from the table needs too much work.
If you prefer to stay in this is a treat.

Great looping and countering rubber with great feel for the ball due to softer sponge. Makes a loud "click" with hard hit balls. Easy control for such a high power rubber. Speed and spin are excellent. Makes an exellent fh or bh rubber. Even with max thickness played with alot of forgiveness on off center shots. Best step up for Mark V users.

Fast and spiny but hard to control. 2.0 is best for close to table attack and blocking; 2.2 is best for mid-distance controlling. The rubber is also hard to loop, but since you relax the wrist you can make a quick loop. A close-to-table loop with X tend HS (2.0) should be a kill-shot all the time.

Great rubber for BH. I think best rubber for BH I ever tried. Its fast, but very controllable; spinny but linear. Its soft and light. My BH improved alot with this rubber; attacking, blocking and flipping is simple with Xtend HS. Must try.

I dont know how they did it but the rubber feels muddy if you counter or block the ball. Best rubber i have ever played for my backhand.
If you use backhand for first loops and fast blocks this is the right rubber. The Control is amazing also spin and speed is good but not the strongest part of the rubber. A lot of very good players try to brake through my backhand but fail. The blocks are fast and with realy nice control. Think about this realy nice backhand rubber. I dont use this rubber on my forehand because therefore the sponge is too soft i think

this rubber isn't for beginner. it is hard and bouncy. not good for looping. speed and durability are both ok...above average. blocking is good though. it is good to be used on wooden blade.

One of the better ESNs but there are some kown problems with it. The spin is not that good and the speed is quite ok but also not very fast. A great advantage is the control in every kind of situation. A big problem was to serve with a lot of spin. Summerized i would say it is a good rubber for controlled offensive play and because of the lot of catapult it is very good for controlled block and loops with average spin and speed.

this rubber is a bit faster than mark 5 with almost the same spin. it has very nice feel. It is softer than mark 5. This rubber is not very fast but it is good. It is a great rubber. Good for hitters and loopers.
