I originally used this with Tibhar EX-P, which is a medium fast rubber. I loved the responsiveness but not a whole lot of feeling, not the best control for modest player like me (a Porsche setup). I put that rubber on a Donic Epox, which turned out to be a really sweet combo, although not super responsive (think Mercedes). Put Quantum S on Fortino Force and Oh Ya, this is a great combination for me. I haven't had that many bats and my ranking is only about 1000 but I'm very happy with this setup. Great feel, control, solid, responsive. Keeping in mind that it's the player not the bat, a $30 bat is probably good enough for the way I play! But I can tell the differences between them, and this last set up feels great.
