Sounds like it's a Chinese-made rubber, so it may well be tacky. Surely someone has tried it?

Thunderball²

GEWO THUNDERBALL² is the result of a development of Chinese material experts and the GEWO team. The outcome is a high quality rubber adjusted to the European playing style an which most important characteristics - high control and extremely spin - are equally pronounced.

The newly developed surface gives the ball highest rotation for top-spin and driving. The special sponge mediates a first class feeling. GEWO THUNDERBALL² guarantees best control and enables precise ball placement.

You easily return opposing strokes, without problems you are taking the offensive yourself or are just safely holding the ball in the match. GEWO THUNDERBALL² - the rubber with the super ball feeling. Controlled speed, maximum spin and high control for precise playing are the characteristics which offer unsuspected perspectives to every player.


So it is tacky? No idea.. but it does "mediate a first class feeling". :lol: Almost sounds like Yinhe 9000:

Yinhe 9000D Pips-In Table Tennis Rubber with Sponge

A control rubber with a new concept. The fast attack is not the only way to play positive table tennis, good control and apeed var iations are also attributes. The fast attack can bereturned fast so that the aggressive player may next play a safe conetrolled well placed stroke. These control shots are not too easy to play with a hard and spinny rubber.
9000 combines both attack and control shots


Incidentally, does GEWO Target have anything to do with the Sanwei item?

According to the tabletennisdb, its tacky rating is 2 out of 10 so not really tacky.
