For some reason the latest Xiom Vega Asia df has had very little exposure on this forum and other review sites

Although marketed like most tensor rubbers as an aggressive looping rubber, what I can say so far is that in 1.8mm it is a very interesting rubber for the modern defender style on def+ to all round speed blades.

I have been using Vega Asia df 1.8mm on both a Tsp balsa 4.5 and an old Standard wood blade and it definitely seems to suit slow flexible wood blades.

Excellent dwell and grip allowing easy variation of spin and speed and not too much bounce, great for both slow and fast fh blocks and plenty of top end for closing out points.

It really should have been marketed as Vega Europe df as in 1.8mm at least it has a very similar feel to the original Vega Europe but with better grip, and a bit crisper (less mushy). Definitely not classic Asia series hard. The new Europe df is however very different being much softer than the original.

Good review of Vega Asia df here (use Google translate)

http://www.tt-spin.de/xiom-vega-asia-df/

Reviewer used 2.0mm probably on a off type blade hence he found rubber quite fast. Confirm his findings re ease of blocking at the table and good grip with poly ball.

As Vega Asia df is quite light it is a good match to oversized Def blades
