        4.00 A solid allround rubber with high spin
        • Good control
        • High spin

        • Durability
        • Not enough speed
        So I've used Xiom Omega 5 Europe in max thickness on a Nittaku Redshank blade.

        Throw angle:
        The rubber has a high throw on slow and medium paced shots but on fast strong shots the throw angle lowers. This fact led me to a conclusion that the rubber is good for backhand and not so good for forehand if you hit hard.

        Spin:
        Spin on serves is good.
        Spin on slow shots is very good. The rubber is great for a nice spinny opening topspin.
        Spin on fast loops is OK. Can't say that it's very spinny or not spinny - just OK.

        Speed:
        The rubber is medium fast. It's slow on slow shots and not very fast on fast shots (for example Tibhar MX-P is about 30% faster in my opinion)

        Control:
        Just great!

        What I didn't like:
        I didn't like the change of the throw angle on fast killing shots (it just drops and that's why it's pretty hard to loop kill a nicely pushed ball). Again with MX-P a have no such problem for comparison.
        After 2 months of regular play (4h a week training + about 2-3hours of free play) it lost a lot of grip (a significant drop in performance).

        What I did like:
        It's a great rubber for backhand (high throw and medium catapult help a lot here).
        It's great for serve in receive - very controlled and very good for opening shots.
        The rubber has great control and using passive shots with it is very easy.

        All in all it's a great allround rubber with emphasis on spin. It has great control, good spin and medium speed so it's a great weapon for a player that likes to play a controlled tactical game.
