This is my favorite Gambler rubber. I was worried the change to the new sponge would change its feel but it still feels great. It's fairly light for a tacky rubber. Comes with a slight diesel smell. The rubber is soft and supple. Sponge is great. It has a certain pop, like a freshly boosted sheet of h3. This pop is what I find missing from the other rubbers in the line-up. I'm an aggressive looper. I use it on my forehand. Works well on all shots. Many gears with good top speed. It plays as described, tack helps on slow shots and gives extra spin on hard shots. A little bouncy when hitting. Good throw angle for safety and blocking. Control is amazing. I think it plays great on backhand also. Just a great rubber.

I got this rubber on my FH and it performed great. My blade was a gambler fire dragon fast. I am a looper with with a big FH and a decent BH (mostly for flicking and blocking). The rubber had lots of tack so I could spin the ball well and with power. It also had quite good blocking without much touch needed. It served well considering I am not the best server although I am improving. This works great if you wish to produce heavy spin close or mid distance.
