What blade did you mount Aggressor on?

I currently have it on a BBC Excalibur blade that I ordered in a stiff 8.0mm thickness.

I moved it to a stiffer and slightly faster blade. Like night and day - so much better. But still I have only played very briefly with it... But if you want to try this rubber, make sure to have a few different blades to try it on.

Put a sheet of 1.3 Black Aggressor on a Nittaku Ludeack penhold. In short: Found it entirely too fast for my penhold backhand chop blocking style. As others have said attacking is dangerous for the opponent, the ball will have little spin and slides, but attacking is very hard to keep on the table consistently.

Unhappy with the speed I took the sponge off and used the Aggressor in OX last night for a short while on the same Ludeack racket. The top sheet is still far too fast for controlled placements, only good for attacking balls above the level of the net really, but the attack must have perfect trajectory as little to no spin is generated to give control. Perhaps 1.5 sponge would actually be better control allowing some sinking into the sponge and grip on the ball.

My own personal first test of any medium pip or long pip is to hand throw a marked ball into the blade with known spin applied by the fingers. If you do this with a variety of pips and try hard and soft throws you can rapidly determine what action and reversal or lack of it the pips have. Throw a backspin ball into Tibhar Grass Dtechs for instance and you see the spin come off the rubber slightly diminished and turning in the same direction as it was thrown. Throw it into a short pip and you see the ball grab and kick back opposite to what was thrown.

Throwing the spinning ball into Aggressor 1.3 or Ox produces a dead ball back or a dead ball with a slight spin that has flipped to the side. This behavior is most typical of a medium pip rubber, the stopping spin and occasionally leaving some spin and making it flip. So I'd say by length measurement Aggressor may be "long" but by performance it is medium and also a very difficult medium to use far more difficult than Friendship 563 for example.

Final conclusion, not enough control for me and would require a whole new game and most likely many months to learn to handle it with any confidence.

I have never obtained good results with flexible blades and pips out rubbers, OX or otherwise. But I prefer stiff blades for inverted rubbers, to put things in perspective.
