Gambler Big Gun Oh-Toro is a moderately aggressive modern hybrid style rubber, perfect for players who enjoy some ability to attack close to the table, yet also move away occasionally. Made with our exclusive Gambler Japanese “Oh-Toro” sponge and combining this with our proprietary formulated top sheet. Big Gun is comparable to premium medium tacky Chinese style rubber, featuring quality only previously found in European and Japanese brands.
• Speed: 98
• Spin: 85
• Control: 85
• Sponge Type: Gambler “Oh-Toro” HARD 48+-2
• Spin Type: Mid Tacky (40% sticky 60% mechanical)
Note: Better performance than so called “National Team” versions of popular Chinese brands, with European/Japanese level of quality.
• Use of Tuners: Just like the top Japanese rubbers Big Gun actually will get slower after tuning. Gambler generally does not recommend the use of tuners with this high performance rubber, however after a week of play post tuner the rubber picks back the original speed and a touch more spin. If you must use tuner only use paraffin based formulas NEVER (regular baby oil) mineral oil based tuners.

Pretty good rubber. For me, the ratings seems to be more like 90 speed, 95 spin, 85 control. Capable of nice speed but requires some effort. Using on my backhand on a gambler fire touch. It has solid feel. On heavy brush shots I can really feel the grip, easy to get the ball to sink in. Many gears, but I'm struggling with the softer touch shots where the speed is nice and slow. Will take some adjustment for backhand. Tried switching it around and I think it would be a pretty good forehand rubber, but I prefer super tacky instead. Throw angle on soft shots is medium but it can pick up higher when I start hitting through. I have a couple sheets of the last generation with thors hammer sponge that I haven't tried. Looks like there is a difference in the rubber in this generation. Softer maybe. Overall I like it, much better than I expected. Much better than the mech tek that I tried a year ago.
