I am unsure how the neo would work on a carbon blade by Adidas. Generally the only rubbers that work well on carbon blades are Tensors, FD3 formula, Tenergy series, Adidas rubber series. I would not recommend a classic Japanese rubber. The new adidas rubbers are supposedly very good from what people say online and many other brands like Andro's Rasant, Donic's Bluefire or Xioms Omega are very good for the Carbon blades as well as wood. On the safe side you could just pop on the 05. Chinese sponges are generally to hard for Carbon blades and can make problems for many players who don't have the experience in using this combination and have a very uncontrollable game of table tennis.
This supposed to be and off+ blade and so the neo rubbers should work just fine on it IMO. This is an interesting blade and it would be great to hear more reviews on it other than the one by yogi. I am looking for a blade that can hold a candle to my Gergely as a backup.
I have it. ASC feels a lot like Amultart (used to have one but sold it) with the same top speed but a tad harder when hit hard ( zylon vs carbon). For passive stroke ie. pushes and blocks ASC behaves better than Amultart - more linear ( Amultart seems to suffer from nice 1st gear and jump to 3rd gear - this according to me ).
They're equally soft on slow passive strokes.
Initially I paired mine with OIV pro 2.0mm + Hexer 1.9mm, counter topspins, smashes, and drives is topnotch with this combo.
feel free to ask me for any other question(s).
