Any idea what this could retail for if imported to Aus? At the moment the aliexpress price is about aud$40. At that price I'd rather pay $10 more and get some target pro gt.

Current price is USD21.75 (which is what - AUD29?). XVT, as one would expect.

This should be moved to the Inverted Rubber section I think...

It's $36 now per piece. Thinking of giving it a try, but will wait to see if any videos appear on the intarwebs of people using it.

Ordered one presto max speed + one presto max spin. Will let you know how they play.

Thanks for the link. The cheapest ones I could find were $36ish. From XVT it ended up being around $31 each. Two for the same price as one high-end rubber. If these are decent, I can replace rubbers twice as often. I just ordered a space blade from the ooak shop to test them on.

Got them today. This can be moved to the inverted rubber section if needed. I will post first impressions within a few days. I will probably give an update a few months after that.

Presto Spin is better than Presto Speed. Higher arc and spin, denser pip spacing, can be much faster when looping. Both rubbers have incredible grip. They're not tacky, but they somehow stick to regular a4 paper and stick to plastic protection sheets.

They're a few notches slower than mx-p, more comparable to Mantra M in performance. I feel that i want a harder sponge with these rubbers. I got 46, but I think they come in 49 too. The sponge isn't springy like a high-end tensor, it's not really porous. More linear and controllable. I can definitely get some good power and spin with the spin version, but it's not as powerful or as easy to generate speed as mx-p. Defending with these rubbers is MUCH better than with mx-p, obviously. You can take a lot of speed off the ball and chop really easily.

So these rubbers are for controlled attacking or allround play. Get the Presto Spin, not the Presto Speed. They are about $30 on xvt store on aliexpress. If you want more power, I think you can get Mantra H from tt-japan for around $35. The sponge is harder and springier.

This is after just a few hours of play. They may end up changing characteristics with more play time, like Big Dipper. I'll give them a few more plays and see.

Those must be Euro/ESN degrees, they can't be Chinese or the sponge would be hard as a rock. It's funny how RITC uses Euro degrees with rubbers like Battle II and Presto but Chinese degrees for cheaper stuff.

I can see myself paying $21 for a sheet of this (but too many things in the pipeline at the moment, including a couple of sheets of Bloom) but not $30, which is approaching Tensor prices. Not unless it's a REALLY good rubber. Your comment about "incredible grip" intrigues me, however. And Three Sword Red Dragon disappointed. Goldarnit.. :lol:

It is strange that Eacheng doesn't carry it, but it seems to be happening more and more. Eacheng doesn't carry Three Sword Red Dragon either, for instance.
