    I would say the Hyper is really fast but as what Airoc said, grest effort results to grest results or shots.

    After 4-5 months using Vega X on both sides, I've switched back to Vega Pro.

    My overall impression of Vega X:
    - Just a slight faster and spinnier than Vega Pro.
    - Higher arc
    - Significantly more spin sensitive
    - Way heavier than Vega Pro (which is strange given that they have the same sponge only different topsheet)
    - Wear out faster than Vega Pro
    - Not so good for passive and active blocks as Vega Pro.

    Totally agree!

    I'll also add that Vega X feels harder than Pro although the sponge hardness is the same, its topsheet's pimple structure must be denser, which would also explain the added weight.

    Both good rubbers, but overall I also prefer Pro.

    Indeed a more dense pimple structure would explain the added weight.

    The sponge of the Vega X feels more dense.

    According to Xiom's catalogue at least,both VP and VX have a sponge hardness of 47.5o while they differ in the topsheet technology where the VP uses Hyper Elasto technology and VX Elasto Futura, which is actually the technology of Omega VII topsheets

    This is comparing to the Vega Pro rubber not the Hyper, if i may add.

    I played with this rubber on FH for some time, but it spent most of the time in the bag. For the love of god, this rubber does not fare well with time. After a year of being glued (stored with a protective adhesive sheet) this feels like a re-heated old cutlet. Feels terrible. I tried reboosting it to get some more use from it, we will see how it goes.

    If someone wants to buy that rubber used or buy a bat with that rubber on it, I suggest caution.
