Looking forward to the Airoc review, i am really interested if the spin is more than their previous Tour rubbers.

It would be great if you tried with both balls Dan, even if it's only a little bit of insight, since most of us will be using the old balls for a while before the new ones.

I have tested the new Airoc rubber (medium) and I didn't like it at all. Way to mushy sponge. And I find it very inconsistent and also hard to play slow spinny fh loop with it.

What blade is it on for the mushy feel? I have it as RPB on Intensity Carbon. It does not excelled in any department but nothing bad either. It is grippy and high throw which suits the new ball very well. I have JP01 Turbo for FH and both rubbers has about the exact same feel and bounce. Only JP has more natural throw and power.

I tried it on a Viscaria, something is very strange with the new Airoc rubber. I felt it had to soft(or more mushy) sponge even for a medium and very inconsistent play like in sometimes it just died even if you get a good hit. And also kinda hard to glue because it had a inward(?) curl! Will be interesting to see Dan's review coming up if it was just my Airoc rubber that was this bad.

Maybe it's not glued to the blade entirely?
I had this with my Baracuda that also had an inwards curl so I had to reglue it so no part came loose from the blade.

Nah I'm pretty sure it was glued on ok, I even tried the rubber on my other blade, rosewood 7, to make sure it was not a bad combo with my viscaria blade. But it didn't help much.

Hmm then let's wait for the review. Maybe you rubber is really just a bad one.

Tried many rubbers in the past, happy with Calibra Sound and Calibra LT Plus on Joola Wing Passion Extreme. Really disappointed with Calibra Tour S, lacked grip and speed.Where does Airoc M sit amongst these rubbers? Is it worth a try?

Hi
has anybody testet the new stiga rubbers?

please report about the rubbers.

Hello everyone:

I am testing the Stiga AIROC M from 1 month ago. I am a left-handed player, and i have as blade a Stiga Ebenholz "PENHOLDER", and using 2 Stiga AIROC M. My first impression was a terrible deception. The rubbers are very heavy, great control, and for me very poor in power and spin.

I have tried all the rubbers of Stiga during some years, But this rubber, with both balls, not working for me and my game.
If you are looking for power, please, don´t throw your money with this rubber.

For spin and power, with my blade or my old blade Stiga Carbo Oversize, have a great ally with Calibra LT, and Calibra Tour.
Best Regards from Chile.

I have been playing with Airoc M for a while now and the spin feels great.

Great rubber, perfect if you are an offensive player who likes to play hard but keep the control. I am now also using Stiga Infinity VPS V which is think is a fine combination with the Airoc.

I agree TT-! Very nice in combination with the Infinity!

I´ve tried it on a Boll Spirit and a Boll ZLF and it works great on both. Just cannot see why it gets more bad reviews than good, but then I´m probably the only person who liked Calibra Tour M?

The best thing to say about it is this: "When I use (no brand name quoted here) I play the balls to a variation of 10 cm left or right of the desired spot. With AIROC M I hit the desired spot - this rubber does exactly what I want it to". Not my quote, but from a friend who is in our national Top 150 and compared the AIROC to the selected stuff he gets from his sponsor...
