YMMV, as they say. For my tacky sheets I always wash off the dirt with water after playing, and then use a rubber protector sheet, which stays on the bat until I need it next. I've taken to using a Ziploc bag, this way I get two protector sheets by simply putting the bat in the bag and smoothing the two sides of the bag onto the rubbers. And I leave the mouth of the bag open. Without exception the tackiness becomes noticeably less in a week, in a month or two it's just barely tacky. Good thing, too - some rubbers like Reactor Corbor are actually too tacky when they come out of the pack. When your pushes go into the net because the rubber's holding on to the ball a little too much then there's too much tack. After 2-3 sessions it becomes OK.

So far Bloom's been the only rubber that's as tacky as it was out of the pack after 2-3 months of playing.

Here's a video I made today. The rubbers have different tackiness relative to one another but they haven't lost their own tackiness over time. The H3 is more tacky now than when I got it out of the pack.

Hi guys, I just want to add that the Friendship BLUE ALC is another viscaria clone. 25 euros on aliexpress, so it's cheap.

the Yinhe V14 is also a viscaria clone, but 4-5 grams heavier :( . Edit: the sanwei f3 pro is not. Look here: https://i.imgur.com/Sz0JXBQ.png It has spruce, and the alc is not the second layer.

Another one is the XVT ALC. This one is also as light as Viscaria: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Df3s1bTpcc

Yinhe Y12 also seems to be a viscaria clone, judging from the pictures. y12: https://i.imgur.com/rU25LXV.png Edit: but maybe that is not ALC, just carbon.

yinhe v16 seems exactly like v14 but thicker, so it can be considered a clone: https://i.imgur.com/aAWBepV.png

I'm sure I've seen others around. In general, if it has koto outer, alc second layer, and 5.8 thickness, it is probably a viscaria clone.
