GAMBLER REFLECTOID (SG) Reflectoid Spin Generating (Mirror Effect)
Reflectoid (SG) was designed for high control blocking, placement and chopping. Reflectoid (SG) has the ability to generate spin and counter attack previously only found in rubbers designed for attack with low control attributes. This product is excellent for players who do not want to sacrifice the ability to attack with spin, yet desire defensive properties. Staff note: Very soft and light, effortless blocking of even the hardest ripped loops. This rubber will cause your opponents to occasionally misread the spin as flat kills go dead like anti, and misread the pace, the ball comes back slower than expected. This is not slippery rubber, it has a tacky top sheet.
This is a good defensive rubber that I used on my backhand. The topsheet is tacky, so soft shots generate spin. The sponge absorbs energy and bottoms-out easily. When that happens, the ball reflects, and the spin is scrubbed off for a more controlled return. You won't win points with a smoking backhand, but it helps keep the ball in play and will make the opponent be aware of which side of the bat you're using.
I tried all 3 sponge thicknesses and for me the 1.0 is the best. I use it on my forehand and the description is good, except the speed absorbing, change of pace applies more to the 2.0. For me the 1.0 allows me to play close to or away from the table equally well, hitting or defense.
