Other than being "un-spinny", what makes Leyland special?

It is 20+ years old, has not been made in 20+ years, it is past the end of its "shelf life." It does not perform like it did 20+ years ago... Oh, I am being negative. A "new" sheet of Leyland on a nice blade is a nice control rubber, partly due to the fact that it is not as spinny as it used to be and it is also very slow. There were several versions of the rubber made, small, medium, and large pips for different types of games. Many different colors to choose from.

My limited experience with the rubber that I had on one blade was that it has a damping quality to it that I haven't found in other rubbers. It feels soft (despite being the covering for a "hard"bat), but is not as bouncy as modern rubbers with a similar degree of softness. It gives a nice, pleasant "thud" feel when you strike a ball with it.

Perhaps something‚Äčto do with the cloth backing?
