Victas V>15 Extra rubber




Weight: 66-68 grams uncut

Speed: OFF+

Spin: Very High

Sponge Hardness: Medium Hard (47.5 degrees)




Victas has been producing rubbers with the likes of Extra 01 and Limber in the past and has produced good success in offering alternatives to mainstream and established brands of table tennis products. The V>15 Extra is a German made rubber for this Japanese company.

Victas V15> Extra offers itself as an alternative to a very saturated market of either Japanese rubbers like Tenergy or various brands like Tibhar and Donic which coincidentally are also made by ESN, the company that produces "tensor" rubbers. I tested this using a Nexy Kim Jung Hoon blade which is a 7 ply, white ash top plies off+ blade. The V>15 Extra is an amazingly fast rubber. Even at 47.5 degrees, the V>15 Extra feels not too hard when you press the sponge and topsheet together. The topsheet feels soft against its medium hard sponge when you compress it. The topsheet is reminiscent of the Joola Rhyzm-P topsheet in which they have the same color which is light red but have different design, structure and probably composition. The V>15 Extra offers very high amount of spin. The spin is more than a lot compared to several German-made rubbers in the market. It can be a substitute to Tibhar MX-P rubber wherein it shares the same speed but offers more speed and more control. Basically the amount of spin is equal to the MX-P but Victas V>15 Extra packs a lot more power with the combination of speed and spin. Although both rubbers are very good, the V>15 Extra offers more control and is also more forgiving on shots and these characteristics makes the V>15 Extra attractive to a lot of players. The topsheet is also very durable as what people around the net have made feedbacks on this rubber. The arc or throw is medium to medium high when looping and when you loop with the V>15 Extra, heavy underspin is easier to lift. Blocking is also very good where in the inherent amount of control this rubber has. Smashing is also

a very good area where this rubber excels because the ball can sink partially into the sponge producing a good amount of speed and power when smashing high balls.

I would recommend this to advanced level players who require power, speed and spin but do not want to lose control. If they are looking for a durable rubber because they are on a budget, then this rubber will last longer than they expect it to be. Even with just the Joola Flame series all wood blades, this rubber can already produce power and speed equivalent to using a carbon blade. Overall, this is an amazing rubber and worth its price.

  • Cheap
  • Long durability
I have tested Victas 15 Extra this season and I am very satisfied! Having played with Donic Bluefire M2 two seasons in a row, im happy about my change. I have nothing negative to say about the rubber. Recommend it to everyone who wants to try a different alternative to Bluefire and Tenergy.
