Hello guys,

I got this rubber couple of days ago and wondering if this is an Xiom Omega Asia IV or Xiom Omega Pro IV ??? (even the packet was for Asia)
3481

The seller explained that Xiom changed the rubber's name without word "Asia" under XIOM mark on the rubber last Autumn and will change it back next Autumn (?) I found this quite fishy. I googled it with the topsheet number and found out it is Xiom Omega Pro rubber with 79-003. Xiom Omega Asia has 79-018 topsheet.

To EdittingSport, be careful with Nyssönen's shop :D

Nyyssönen may have some older rubbers. Ittf page says Omega Pro has 79-017 and Omega Asia 79-018. It has no info on 003. I'm not saying it's the right rubber but if it was in Asia package It may be the manufacturers fault.

At first he said he is using the same Asia rubbers with 003 with no "Asia" mark. then he said "Europe" :D He also said the topsheet 003 is because the rubber is about 7 months old :D
He refused for the return and re-shipment. Sadly, his shop is one of the biggest tt shops in Finland :D
