GAMBLER ZERO THOR'S HAMMER SPONGE
Gambler Zero is a mechanical spin type rubber, generating spin exclusively via grip. Zero's non-tacky surface is ideal for away table play or flat hitting (just like Japan or Euro rubber). Thor’s Hammer is special hard professional grade large cell sponge, much faster than traditional sponge, that works fantastic tuned. We generally recommend this type of sponge for advanced or professional players. This type of large cell hard sponge is what professional players in China use. Thor’s Hammer is the same formula large cell type that is used under famous “National Team” rubbers.
NOTE: These ratings may vary from the original ratings, as the Thor's Hammer sponge is more powerful than the original one.
Excellent quality and performance. Looking for close to table, forehand attack rubber to complement bh lp. Priority is control (for placement and put away) plus some degree of spin for 40+ poly ball. Cheaper than Sriver, Calibra and with Thor sponge equal to other Chinese alternatives. No issues and suggest viewing USATT review (on you tube) for altrnative comments. Will be buying more.
Fantastic quality rubber. It's a soft rubber yet crisp action and sound. I have tried all three Zero rubbers and Thor's Hammer is a big jump in speed. What is strange is the rubber has far more grip than the other Zeros. I liked the other Zeros because spinny serve returns didn't fly off my paddle when I touched them, like tacky rubbers do, so I had better control on returns. This Zero vision really grips great, and I like that too if I am not playing heavy spin opponents. Great for powerful topspin attackers.
