Most players like "power" in their play. A very few like "style" more than anything. I'm one of those rare types that like to make the ball alive & make it go to anywhere I want, in a sharp angled curve. I had these on my Juic Elf (thank god I got one before it got discontinued) for years, annoyed the heck of everyone I played with. A very dangerous weapon in the hands of a skilled chopper. This is a very good chop & loop rubber, if not the best.
