    Victas V>01 Stiff and Regular are both pretty good rubbers. Good spin. Good speed. It is pretty much as good as anything else.

    They just got Koki Niwa to sign a 5 year contract with them and he will be using their premier rubber, Victas V>15 Extra.

    Is that a question or a statement?

    I know someone whose pretty good who likes it more than Tenergy but nothing is really better than Tenergy. But I wouldn't say it is worse than Tenergy either. It is one of a few rubbers that is about they good.

    What's the difference between the "Victas V01" and the "Victas V01 stiff"?
    A short, spinny, low serve with pace... Works as well as a Ace

    Backup blade set up:
    BLADE: DHS Hurricane HAO 3
    BH: Tenergy 05
    FH: MXP

    Stiff is harder, regular is not as hard, Limber is softer. They have ones that are harder than Stiff. And being honest, Stiff is on the softer side of medium. I was fine with Stiff on either FH or BH. Limber, I found it was too soft. But they also have versions softer than Limber.

    You should try the newer Victas 1.5.

    Don't do that. The EJ in me is already rising. Lol

    I looked on the db site and saw that one is faster (V>01) and the other is spinier (V>01 stiff). The 15 is right in the middle, blending good speed and spin. I think I'm going for the speed (V>01) because it's said to be the least sensitive to spin. Might help my return game.

    Kev, you have enough good equipment. Use what you have for now, when something wears out, then you get the next thing.

    I like the spin on MX-P better than Victas but Victas seemed to last longer, it is much lighter and it has a better feel to it as a result of the sponge even if MX-P performs a hair better than it for me.

    Not 100% sure but, I did not love the V>01 Limber. I felt the sponge was too soft. But, both Regular and Stiff were faster than T05 so, my guess is, 15 Limber would probably be faster than Baracuda, softer than Baracuda, but not as spinny.

    It's a guess since I did not try 15. So, hopefully there is someone who has tried it who can give a real answer.
