First of all, sponge hardness is identical for 2.0, max, even every other thickness.

For Stiga, it will be difficult as I have never seen any number given. If you do find something, it will probably be a Japanese rating so you should add 10 degrees to compare it with XIOM, which are produced in Germany.

For XIOM, you should sort your list further, as to my knowledge there is no Omega China (but Vega China) and it is also important to know which Omega you refer to (as there is for example Omega IV Elite, but yet no V Elite).

I can tell you this about Omega V.

Asia approx 50 degrees, Tour and Pro 47.5 (Pro feels softer than Tour) and Europe 45 degrees.

My apologies i didn't check the website for correct rubber names ;)

Noticed Europe is a little slow on my backhand - i used to play with LT Spin - I think Omega V Pro on forehand to replace Calibra LT and Tour on backhand to replace LT Spin

You might even want to try the VEGA series, I think Calibra LT and Vega Pro arenĀ“t worlds apart, Vega Japan/Asia also might fit
