    Xiom Vega Japan

    Hey guys! Can you give your insights on this rubber, Xiom Vega Japan. I would like to use it on my TB ALC as a BH rubber.
    Right now I would like to know what you guys can say to its performance and durability especially because I have an upcoming tournament this September (around 2nd week) and I'm hoping it would last until that time?

    I play close to mid table. Loops and ends a rally with FH and usually blocks and sometimes can loop with BH. For BH, I need it to be controllable in receiving and also be able to use it in "punch blocks". I wonder if this Xiom Vega Japan rubber fits the description?

    Thanks!

    I know a few people who like Vega Pro for their backhand. I use Omega IV Europe for mine. I like it a lot. Good spin, good control. I was trying to figure out what the difference between Vega Europe, Vega Japan and Vega Pro was.

    What does Vega Japan play like.

    I just tried the Vega Japan today on a test bat on BH.
    I actually liked it in BH. IMO it is in between Vega Euro and Vega Pro. The spin is massive with a good brush, guys at the club had a lot of difficulties putting the ball on the table after a opening BH loop. Punching the ball without losing control of it is quite good and it has a good touch.
    Spare setup: Blade: Custom DHS W968 93.5g, FH: Hurricane 3 National BS (Black), BH: Tenergy 64 (Red)

    I thought the Vega line would be the most controllable in Xiom? So, Vega < Omega < Sigma as the fastest line?

    Then what can you suggest sir from the Vega line to be a good backhand rubber? I only look for Xiom right now because I can get good discounts here.
    Thank you!

    I personally like softer rubber on my backhand. Asia is the hardest of the line. Pro is a little softer than Asia and a little harder than Europe. But I do know a lot of people who use Vega Pro on their backhands and really like it.

    And Xiom rubbers are great. I use Omega IV Europe on my backhand and I really like that.
