I had not heard anything about this new rubber till now:

To be a successful defender nowadays it is extremely important to constantly refine all playing components. Cutting defence from half distance is not the only priority any more. Moreover, a defensive player has to be flexible. This requires pimple rubbers that enable such playing characteristics.
Therefore our goal was to develop a long pimple rubber, together with our longterm partner defending ace Chen Weixing, that meets all the requirements of modern defensive play. The result of these efforts is the JOOLA CWX.
The pink coloured (50°) sponge with integrated Tensor technology offers enormous opportunities for undercut strokes away from the table, whilst retaining control for disturbing shots close to the table due to the sponge hardness and flat trajectory. The grippy micro structure of the pimple heads and the flexibility of the narrow pimples also allows extreme chop defence with maximum control.

Its a tensor, so its not a p1r clone.

Maybe a dtechs variant?

I don't understand what the putative benefits of a tensor LP rubber are.

I've always found the fact that you can get it WITHOUT the (in)famous green sponge highly amusing.

Can you give a very brief summary of what it's like?

I play with CWX 0.5 red. What can i say? Low throw angle (i compare to p1r 1.0 and Dtecs 1.2), nice reversal, a bit less then p1r, similar to Dtecs, but nearer to the table. Nice deception, better than p1r, similar to DTecs. I'd say it's LP very similar to DTecs, due to tensor sponge, very long pimples (probably 1.8/1.9mm) and widely placed. Speed isn't so high, i can easily control this LP next to table because isn't sensitive to spin, chop-blocks are dangerous and like to slow down just before opponent's blade ;) As I wrote in other topic, I want to check this LP with stiff, faster blade (something like off-) but i'm a bit afraid it will be too fast because i've never played LP with faster blade than ALL ;)

Anymore news on this rubber?

Sounds like it's closer to low friction LP than something grippy like FL3 or curl p4?

When and bought this myself...

I don't think it's much like d.tecs. I found d.tecs was much closer to joola badman reloaded (low friction pips, good for blocking close).

The CWX lp (in OX) is slightly less grippy than curl p4 in OX, and a bit more grippy than feint long 2. When blocking heavy top spins it requires a very closed angle, and the resulting ball has minimal backspin on it. Not good for relying on spin reversal!

Chopping -- yes, yes! That is where it shines! It has enough grip to bring about a small amount of spin variations. You can chop dead or really rake under the ball, bend those pips with a fine slicing of the ball and return a ball which will roll back into the net. Against no spin, it has enough friction to control the ball, but far from the amount required to really alter the spin beyond a weak chop if off the table. Over the table... I don't think much spin can be imparted. You really need that raking action to bend the pips, similar to other high friction long pips (octopus, p4, fl3, etc.).

Not very forgiving like d.tecs is when it comes to chopping. You still need those full, active strokes to really bring about the rubber's potential. Half-assed chops, as you can do with badman or d.tecs, will get you nowhere here other than a floating return! The grip is too high, and so the spin will be stopped as it were, not reversed much at all.

I'd put it in the same category as curl p4, octopus and feint FL3/2.
