this rubber is the best weapon for modern push blocking. its success is signified by the attempts from other companies to make a clone of the rubber, much like tenergy 05. service return, block and lift, push and counter is all very deceptive. spin on service is nil. a high amount of spin reversal is attained an all shots. the rubber is a bit fast though, and if your not overly careful the ball will go long, but thats the only problem my problem with this rubber. black produces more dead balls but is slighly more tricky and wobbly, red has less friction and has more spin reversal but has less wobble. red is slightly faster than black. comes with a glue sheet on the back, which signifies that there is a TENSOR-like tension integrated in the rubber. this rubber is what the worlds top push blockers refer to when reviewing something else. anti, medium pimples and even other long pimples cant compare. some very similar rubbers are the DONIC piranja formula tec, JOOLA badman reloaded and the Giant Dragon Talon. all have pretty much the same effect and spin reversal, along with the integrated tension. this rubber is also very very durable. it lasted me for a while. the price is worth it, if you consider the 45 USD to be too high. its not super block, but a very innovative rubber. against dead balls and lobs, if you find the right stroke these shots will be a breeze to control. for more control, go to CTT national pogo, HALLMARK phoenix or Palio CK531A. if you want an antispin rubber that is also very good for push blocking, go to JOOLA AMY control the classic version gives a dead ball, DR.Neubauer Anti Special or DR.Neubauer A-B-S.
