    I started using Xiom O7E VII since January this year. I use it on my backhand. Earlier, I was using Butterfly Tenergy 05FX on my backhand for 3 years. I reach around 1800+ on my leagues rating till last year before COVID hit and then I stopped playing in tournaments and leagues.
    As per the playing style, I am left handed and I loop, drive, block, punch and push on my backhand. Basically, I like to have more control on my backhand as I want to control the incoming spin and also add spin during receives and in the rally. I prefer playing close to the table. So that should help you how I use the rubber.
    For close to the table play, I felt that I get more control on the backhand when compared to Butterfly Tenergy 05FX. For all round play, I feel that it is easier to redirect the ball on the table and even if I take a step back, I can play actively in the rally. All strokes including serves play good and I am satisfied with what I get from the rubber. From the life of the rubber perspective, I feel that it looks as good as new till now. But I am only playing approx. 6-8 hours per week.
    Hope this helps. By the way, I am not picky on rubbers and kind of like to adjust to whatever I get. I stopped using Tenergy because I felt that I am not playing at the higher level and I don't feel like investing that much money just for my passion anymore.

    Quite a good rubber if you hit through the sponge more.

    In Europe, Omega VII Pro and Euro are only 2€ less than Tenergy.
    I know the difference in price is larger in the US between these rubbers.

    Cheers

    I simply meant that here in Europe, Omega VII series can be found way cheaper than tenergy. I don't know the list price though

    Yes, I'm talking about the list price indeed.

    Tenergy's are 60€ on Butterfly Europe. I get them at 10% off, so 54€. Then a lot of individual sellers sell them new sealed for 45€.

    Omega VII's are 58€. Of course it's easy to get them at 20% off, so 46€.

    Not that big a difference in price unlike 30-35€ rubbers like MX-P, Fastarc's, Rakza's, Vega's...

    Point me to a seller that sells Tenergy for 45 Euros. The dealer in my area charges around 75 Euros. The Xiom cost around 45 Euros at the same place.

    I'm speaking of individual sellers like on TT blogs and groups.

    I am also curious about those Tenergy prices. The best I could buy is directly in the Dandoy shop, here in Brussels. 59.95€

    If your club as a discount contract with Dandoy, you can likely get -10% on Butterfly and -20% on other brands.

    Then individual sellers often sell new sealed Tenergy's for 45-50€ on TT blogs and groups.

    So what you stated about prices in the earlier post was incorrect.

    It's not, there's list prices and market prices.

    It's a 2€ difference if you're not resourceful (60€ vs 58€), 1€ difference is you are (45€ vs. 46€).

    You're telling me you buy your Evolution and Rakza rubbers for 46-47€?

    That’s buddy prices, they don’t count ...
    (If I steal mine there for free...)

    I paid around 30 Euros for my Rakzas and a little more for Evolution...

    In Poland you can get Tenergy for 54 Euro from official distribution, and for 45 Euro from facebook groups new sealed with proof of original purchase all day long. They pop up after comptetitions like crocuses in the spring.

    Here Xiom Omega 7 Euro is 36.81 euro and that's the max price.Usually there is 10-20% discount on selected Xiom rubbers

    .http://tennisdiscount.eu/index.php?m...oducts_id=1090

    32.98 euro for Xiom V Asia

    http://tennisdiscount.eu/index.php?m...roducts_id=691

    29.91 euro for Omega IV Europe

    http://tennisdiscount.eu/index.php?m...roducts_id=650

    The Easter Bunny will eat the price carrot with other 10%. down.
    Santa doe's the same.
