    Best Xiom Rubber?

    Hi everyone. Please kindly spare some time to list out the famous and well loved xiom rubbers and explain its characteristics as i am considering a new rubber. It doesn’t have to be soft or hard only.. just list out for example a vega europe and tell me about its characteristics. Thank you!

    Xiom Vega Japan. Matte top sheet. Easy to play. Not sensitive to incoming spin. Reasonably spinny. Reasonably fast. Great.

    Vega Pro. Firm feeling, with a good bite. Fast, but not too hot to handle for many mere mortals. Spins well, both in backspin openups and counterspins, but offers a good direct play and a reasonably solid short game as well. Well-balanced and versatile, and my fave in the Vega series; and all that one notch below the “let’s see what we can soak these suckers for” price point.

    Vega Euro DF: Excellent BH rubber for players between entry and intermediate level. Super control, easy to generate spin.
    Vega X: Arguably the second-best value for money Euro-Jap style rubber available at the moment (I would say Fastarc G1 still takes the top spot). Probably gives 90% of the performance of the top/flagship rubbers at about half the price.
    Omega V series: Tried Asia, Tour and Euro and wasn't impressed with any of them.

    isn’t the vega x a little on the “very” hard side?

    No, not really. I suppose it depends what you're used to, but Vega X is only 47.5 degrees which most folks would probably say is the "average" sponge hardness. Personally I think it feels very easy to play with.

    In terms of sponge hardness:

    Vega Japan is 45 degrees
    Vega X and Rakza 7 are both 47.5 degrees

    so vega x would have an easier time adjusting to then?

    Agree. Best Xiom rubber ever.
