Hi
I didn't own the rubber myself as this is really quick and I don't play at that level of standard to tame the beast down :).
I got a chance to try it on one of friend's set up .
Blade : Butterfly Jun Mizutani
FH : T05 Hard
BH : T05 Hard

My the set up which i use is considerably slower Nittaku Ascoustic (FH : R47 BH : 42). So below is review from that point of comparision

Forehand counter : The set up was really fast so ball just sprung away too quickly. I didn't get time to feel the ball so ended up hitting longer.
After few adjustment i was able to get it right and felt my counters were very powerful but then i was hitting from one spot so most of the time i was in correct position. I doubt in match situation i can manage that with consistently.

Forehand loops : Again the loops were very spiny with low throw angle so many times i end up kissing the net (not bad in matches :p). I realize the importance of proper weight transfer when playing with this rubber as when i went slight off position my shots where all over the places.

Push/Chop : I am not much of chopper so can't comment on this aspect much. Pushes with rubber was bit tricky as i ended up over compensating it. The best part was the push went deep on the table making it difficult to loop.

Block/Punches : This is the area which it suited me the best as that is my forte. The blocks were very effective as ball traveled fast giving little time for opponent to react but again it required higher skills to block really spiny balls. Punch blocks were really fun not sure if the hard sponge helped it but i was able to punch with lot of power even above average spiny balls.

Control : It is very subjective as it varies from player to player but for my level i was always going to struggle.

So my take is this rubber is really good only if you have sufficient technique and really quick moment to get in correct positions.

I will stick to my set up and keep improving my technique before going all out :p
