We used to carry it in OOAK shop, but not anymore. Be careful with this rubber, it's very fragile and the topsheet easily dislodges from the sponge.

Pooh, bad batch maybe?

My sheet still intact after what 5 or 6 years!

Have you used it before tod?

What I will say is that because it has a strange kind of velvety finish, it looks used very quickly, but it didn't affect how it played!, best anti I ever played with, so much control and could attack beautifully too!

Next best was Nittaku Best Anti, if anyone is looking for some, I have a few new sheets left!!

It's possible, but at the time we ordered from Armstrong (couple of years back) they told us they had changed to new water-based gluing techniques... so I suspect this is the cause. Your sheet was probably assembled with the old VOC glue, which did not have those problems.

Seems a reasonable explanation.

Anyway, just to add, the soft red sponge allowed you to take off spin and speed accurately, yet also to grip the ball enough with this velvety type surface to hit and even slow loop the ball!
