QUANTITY







Almana and Almana Sound both have the new revolutionary NC "Nano Composite" technology. NC sponge uses a new mixing technique to create extremely small grains (as small as 50-100 nanometers) during the vulcanization process. Until recently table tennis manufacturers were limited to using large granularity chemicals when creating porous sponge cells. Using techniques from the emerging field of nano technology, STIGA has found a way to control the formation of rubber chemicals at much smaller scales. The result is stronger and tighter bonds that produce maximum dynamic effect. Great for all gluing methods, even the water-based glues.
Speed and Spin are way over rated.

I switch to this rubber because it had simular ratings compaired to Boost TS and I wanted something a little slower than Boost TS. After switching to this rubber from Boost TS none of my smashes would hit the table. This rubber is not a high tension rubber, it is slow and lacks spin. If I had to rate it, speed would be about 8.5 and spin would be about 8.7.

Depends on your game..

this rubber is good for slower, looping style players. smashes are just about impossible, and the speed on the rubber is overrated. there are better rubbers on the market.

Great for my game

Ive used Almana Sound for a couple of years, lately on the stiga Offensive Classic blade. It is especially good for my looping game, but I also hit with a flat-ish smash and I get good power with this rubber. If you want the fastest rubber, go with something else, but if you want something with touch for all your offense I recommend this.
