GAMBLER GXM

Using 1mm sponge. This rubber does not make much spin. It plays like a true medium pip with spin reversal on flat shots and no spin when stroked. I found it subpar for chopping. Shots normally made with long pips do not work that well either as this rubber does not have sufficient spin reversal and is too fast. So why the 5 Stars? This rubber is by far the best hitting/blocking rubber I have ever used. It is a hammer that you literally whack every shot down with. If you have an unconventional forehand like myself that hits/blocks vs loops or would like an aggressive backhand for close to the table play, I highly recommend this rubber. I feel this rubber won't work for the majority of players due to the limited shots it can make. But for the ones it does work for, it is amazing.
