Hi guys!! Has anyone tried this rubber?
Last month I bought this new rubber in 1,5 mm, I was going to try it before but unfortunately a dog bit my leg and I was injured.

The rubber looks good the pips are elastic, quite separated from each other and can be bent easily.
The pips top ara unmarked and appears sticky.The sponge is a bit springy and quite elastic.
IMO pips are long for a medium pips , longer than yinhe pluto , Killer and keiler compared with the naked eye.
The rubber is very light.

Because I'm still a little injured, I couldn't taste it well at all , only 15 min,but my first impressions are:
-IMO it is as fast as killer 2mm , and slower than keiler 1.8 mm
-The throw is quite low similar to Neubauer Killer , but because FlashBack has more grip it is easier to play with.
-Despite the low throw and long pips its very easy to attack and generate a bit of spin.
-I thought that the blocking would not be good due to the grip, but it is not like that, the ball penetrates the pips and generates a good disruption effect.
-It has a lot of control.

I will leave more sensations when I can try it more.


Thanks guys

Thanks for the initial report. hope the leg get better soon.

Sounds an interesting fast MP alternative to Killer, Keiler etc. faster than say Hellcat but less long pip like than Power Pipes and aggressor. might be similar to the new Barna half long.

I find it really important with an MP to get not just a good disruptive effect when blocking and counter hitting topspin with a stiff wrist action but also still to be able to create a bit of topspin when needed. Do you think the spin disruption balance is similar to Keiler? What is it like against back spin?

Yesterday I did my second test of the rubber.
You got it right, I think it's a very good alternative to the keiler and killer.
Hellcat is slower and I think is more oriented to defend.
Aggressor and power pimples are another world. This rubber is easy to use.

With this you can generate a very good spin much more than with the keiler but with a lower angle. It is very easy to perform pseudo top spins, the rubber is very dynamic and has a "click" sound similar to the keiler. You will not cause problems reading the spin your opponent but you will get the ball high to finish the point with a smash.
You can easily lift the back spin balls no problem with that.

When you make direct hits or active blocks it behaves more like the killer and you will get your opponent to send the ball to the net. But not as easily as other more disruptive rubbers.

I think this rubber is very close to keyler and both are sensitive to the opposite effect.

In blocking with the keyler it is easier to block because the FlashBack you have to adjust the angle better but if you succeed you will return much more dangerous balls.
The spin disruption of this rubber balance is similar to Keiler, but only slightly better.

In my opinion it is a very interesting rubber, especially if you are interested in attacking generating your own spin, with a lot of control.
If what you want is to be annoying your opponent at all times, it is not your rubber.
