    Omega V Asia vs. Vega Asia

    Hi,

    is there someone out there that can (and wants to) tell me the differences between these two rubbers?
    Sponge hardness, topsheet hardness, spin speed, control?

    Cheers
    Andi

    Vega Asia is softer and slower.

    Is there a big difference in topsheet hardness? Or is it just the harder sponge of OVA?

    I think the topsheet of omega v asia is also much firm.

    I got both of these and I am a decent beginner player who can comfortably play against PO and Anti players and maybe even win!

    Too hard both XOVA and XVA... What I ended up doing was 2 layers of baby oil ( or short effect duration booster) and leaving them alone for 2 weeks. Then both rubbers are much more livelier and controllable and giving more dwell.

    Before softening the sponge it was difficult to flick and push and block. Almost unforgiving for anything.

    Throw was low before boost and similar afterward as well... But much more controlled.... Easier to lift heavy underspin... Push and serves magic... Flick for days... I don't need speed just the softness..... Hence used baby oil
