      Xiom rubbers harder then Vega Pro?

      Hello, I recently got the Vega Pro and I think its a bit too soft. I need something harder and was wondering if there was any rubber in the xiom rubber family such as Omega and Vega that are harder then this. Also what does the "pro" "tour" "asia" and "europe" represent ?

      Asia and Tour are harder. Get Omega V Asia and call it a day.

      Asia and Tour are both softer than the Pro. Does it have to be Xiom? MX-S would be a logical step.

      Wait so is Asia and tour harder or softer then Pro? also which one is the hardest. I have the MXP and I think it is a little too heavy.

      Vega Pro is the hardest of the Vega series. Europe has a soft topsheet + soft sponge, Asia has the same topsheet as Europe but with the sponge of Pro, I haven't tried the Tour, but it is supposed to have a 45 degree sponge whereas the pro is 47.5.

      In any case, harder rubber = heavier.

      Vega is the hardest vega rubber. Vega tour overall is also harder than pro due to the topsheet

      The original Vega Asia is harder than Vega Pro.
      Vega Asia DF is slightly softer than Vega Pro.
      Vega Tour is harder too.

      Vega Asia 1st gen has the same sponge hardness as Vega Pro (both at 47.5)
      Vega Tour is at 45.0
      I agree both top sheets makes it feel harder than Vega Pro

      below is some options to consider:

      omega V asia - 50.0
      omega V tour - 47.5
      omega V pro - 47.5
      omega VII Asia - 52.5
      omega VII Pro - 47.5
      omega VII Tour - 55.0

      Nope, there is vega def with 57,5.
      Can't get harder than that.

      Get SST Pro Team God Favored. There is a TT rubber data base somewhere. I think SST Pro Team God Favored was the hardest.
      https://revspin.net/rubber/729-sst-pro-team.html

      It might not be harder than 57.5.
      Why would anyone want something that hard?
      I think slow close to the net play would suffer.

      It is different top sheets.
      you can take it that omega 7 is faster/spinner than omega 5 and omega 5 the same with Vega

      your OP was quite vague, but if you want something a bit more powerful, the Omega 7 pro can be an option, but a firmer rubber = heavier weight too.
      to me Vega Pro is also on a soft side,
