I do, I have 2 sheets of NBA ( Nittaku Best Anti ) mounted on two different paddles and a MegaBlock 1.5mm waiting to be mounted.

The problem I have with anti is that for some reason my anti rubbers are wearing quicker now. The anti rubber does not have consistent friction across the top sheet. I think some of this is due to the rougher surface of the plastic ball.

Another issue that I NEVER see mentioned on OOAK is the difference between static and dynamic friction. Some antis will grip more when the difference in tangential speed between the ball and top sheet is low. I routinely rubber balls across the top sheet of my anti to check if the friction changes under different conditions.
