Volt-M HARD is our most aggressive mechanical rubber perfect for players who prefer a bouncy rubber with a high grip feeling. Volt-M HARD uses a taller pip geometry arranged in a diagonal array giving enhanced ability to hold the ball longer and catapult effect. Volt-M HARD is a small batch premium rubber, created by selecting only the best cuts of our exclusive Gambler Japanese “Oh-Toro” sponge and combining with our proprietary formulated top sheet. Volt-M HARD characteristics are closely associated with the “European style” of play, or alternatively “Chinese style” backhand.
- Speed: MAX
- Spin: 97
- Control: 80
- Sponge Type: Gambler “Oh-Toro” Japanese middle cut, HARD 48+-2
- Spin Type: Mechanical (bouncy not sticky)
Note: Directly comparable in speed and spin with the top brands of Japan, faster than Tenergy® type speed.
Use of Tuners: Just like the top Japanese rubbers Volt-M HARD actually will get slower after tuning. Gambler generally does not recommend the use of tuners with this high performance rubber, however after a week of play post tuner the rubber picks back the original speed and a touch more spin. If you must use tuner only use paraffin based formulas NEVER (regular baby oil) mineral oil based tuners.
Jason Poulos –
Love this rubber. I like it better than ButterflyTynergies 05,80, Tibhar Evolution MXP, DHS Gold Arc 8, Xiom Europe, Andro Rasant, Andro Rasanter 37 and 47, all rubbers that cost a whole lot more- and I’d bet this one lasts longer than the others also.
I liked the medium sponge too, but found I liked the harder sponge even better. It’s fast but not too fast. I like the 1.7 sponge best. Very consistent, good spin, good speed, but easy to keep on the table. Don’t let the low price on this rubber fool you. It is a bargain.
