A few comments on Boost rubbers.
I've used now 3 Boost rubbers, TS, TC and TP on an Acoustic and a Donic WSC.

There are 4 in this series, TS, TC, TP and TX in order of hardness, soft to hard. I have not had a chance to use the TX version.

The topsheet is typically Stiga, smooth and glossy (and wears like a stiga!), good grip and perhaps slightly on the hard side. The sponge, despite looking like every other Stiga sponge out there, feels quite springy. Good spin and speed for looping but it has a nice touch in the short game, albeit possibly not that spinny here. The rubber performs excellently when it's dry however humidity tends to make balls drop off it fairly easily and more frequently than other rubbers. Better for hitting into the ball than trying to brushloop.

TS is very user friendly, being so soft, approx 37.5 to 40 on the Tensor scale (Think Tango). Has a nice corking sound on all hits. Topsheet feels softer than the TC and TP.

TC felt more like a backhand rubber for some reason. It's slightly harder, perhaps 42.5 degrees on the tensor scale but the topsheet feels noticeably different in hardness to the sponge. Great control and good spin.

TP was slightly harder again than the previous two. Better power/spin ratio and the topsheet/sponge hardness felt more synergistic than the TC. Good for people who hit more into the ball and are looking for an easy to control topspin rubber.
