Just received a Nittaku blade with a red Tihbar Nianmor for the FH and a black Xiom Omega IV Europe for the BH and went to the table tennis club I play . Friends on mine , including a top player in the island was curious about the rubbers since he has only used Butterly over the years. Now he has a Bryce Speed for the FH and a Tenergy 64 for the BH. He played with the Smart Pong robot for about 45 minutes, he could not stop , until I said enough! He tells me that the Nianmor had about the same velocity speed as the Bryce speed and the same spin the tenergy 64 has. He told me it is an incredible rubber, probably the best FH rubber he has ever had. He also told that me that he was going to buy it. About the Xiom Omega IV Europe, he said it had a little more spin that Tenergy 64 , but it was also a little bit slower. Also told me it had much more control. He said the combination of the Nianmor and the Xiom were outstanding , one of the best. He finally let me try the paddle, and I can say my friends that the Nianmor is the best rubber I have ever tried , period. The Xiom is the best BH rubber I have ever used. Amazing!!!
