O=Omega
E=Euro version
A=Asian version


I got O3 E & A and Zeta A version as well O2 and O1 and Max Laverige to :D but O1 and Laverige are from begining of this year.
O1 has real low throw somehow very weird rubber and fast not as O3
Max Laverige is nice allaround rubber with great spin and medium speed great for allaround offensive play with lots of spin variation.

O3 A is real monster about 15%-20% more speed then O3 E which is allready incredibly fast. Spin is huge on both rubbers.
O3 A is realy good for hiting and countering loops as well all topspin play
both O3 are great at blocking wery fast rebound and i feel like i have grat control with both of them and blocks are fast .
Only thing with asian is closer to table is bit fast so will have to put few more hours of practise under belt.

Zeta A compared to O3 A&E is slower for 10% then O3 E version.
Felt realy nice on F/H and perfect for B/h felt like i can tospin all day without foults.
Loop and drive from distance was very good to and spin is huge same as O3.
Zeta A is faster then O2 E as well sponge is harder on zeta,

Short game with all rubbers above is easy to control didn't have any trouble.
They are all good for serving and produce great spin.

Thanks Purger...

Looks like I'm sticking with Zeta... Like you said, I also find it pretty good for FH, excellent for BH. I'm not forking out the difference in price for the 10% increase in speed.

Sunflex both Xiom are spinier O3 asian is around 30% faster and Zeta asian about 5% faster but control of Xiom rubbers is 30-40% greater than Mambo GP.

Wow, someone has decided to splash the cash :wink:

Seeing how you have tried so many of them, which one do you feel has the feeling most comparable to the speed glue feeling? (Not necessarily amongst the rubbers mentioned above, if you have tried others, please include them as well)

I'm not talking about speed here, I can get that without the glue, but I do miss the nice feeling a fresh glued rubber provided me with.
From all Xiom rubbers,Roxon,Platin,Pride the Omega 3 Asian version has the closest speed glue feeling after is Omega 3 euro that is wat I feel others may have diferent opinion. :D

Thanks for the info Purger, I might want to look into the O3A then. Correct me if I'm wrong, but this comes with a harder sponge then the Euro version, right?

My main worry now is that all these rubbers might be to fast for my likings since I've grown used to slower rubbers since I adapted to playing with tacky rubbers.

Wish you had tried the Boost TC as well so you could compare with that as that is the one I've tried and know something about. A very good rubber, but not much feeling of glue to it.


I would recomend Zeta asian version to you. sponge hardness 47.5 degree

Bost TC is faster then Zeta heard from few players I played against.
