Joola Air! Rosnet
and still fast?
Impossible... No, it isn't!
ROSnet – that's how we call the technology that sets new standards and
extends the possibilities regarding dynamic and safety. This is made
possible through a - compared to other rubbers - totally new molecular
structure that has the ball bury itself in the rubber in order to
practically catapult out it with extreme force!
All our top players were enthusiastic about it after the first tests!
Well, those people know their business and are able to speedglue a
rubber in such a way that even at first glueing the rubber provides best
possible speed and spin - but also the "normal" player will realize
after the first strokes that with AIR! ROSnet he/she is in control of a
thicker sponge and plays a stronger topsping without losing control. And
since the AIR! is 10% lighter than usual rubbers the change to a thicker
sponge does not affect the technique.
The AIR! is the first rubber in ROSnet technology – and we still see
many alternatives for the future in this new technology!

Joola Air! Rosnet review:
Review by: Tuan Pham - Georgia State University Table

Ok guys, here's my review of Joola AIR! (5 layers CTE)
What can I say about the minty green sponge....ITS SOFT! The topsheet
feels extremely flexible and looks like it would be best for my looping
game. The bounce test with this one was much more agreeable to me
compared to Mambo H. It had a nice soft feeling with just as much
height. On top of that, the click sound reminded me of a nicely glued
sheet of rubber. Similar to Mambo H, the topsheet is grippy. Not too
sure which is grippier but I feel that they are about the same, Mambo H
might be a bit more grippy. The weight of the rubber is also much
lighter than Mambo H. I could tell a big difference between my Mizutani
Jun + Mambo H and Mizutani Jun + Air!.
When playing with this rubber, I feel like it is a tad slower than Mambo
H but I was able to loop with a much higher arc. The control of this
rubber was also much better too. With serves, I feel like they aren't as
spinny but i can get better deception out of them. In rallies, I feel
like I'm able to place the ball better. In loop to loop rallies, the
increased dwell time really enables me to hook the ball more. Against
underspin, I'm able to loop the ball with a much better margin of error
due to the higher looping arc. The backhand seems to be working fairly
well with it, but I'm still working on that. Will keep you updated on
that info. As for pushes, the ablility to control the spin and distance
better than Mambo H.
The speed of the rubber seems to be the only part that is lacking. I can
do loop kills but that's only if I know that I will get a definite
point. It seems hard to pressure the opponent with this rubber.
This is a great control rubber. You can move the opponent around with
spin variation and positioning. If you're looking for a loop-control
rubber, then AIR! is the best choice. But if you're looking for more of
a loop-kill/drive rubber, then you should try Mambo C and H.
Hope all this info helps guys. When you compare it to the Mambo H
review, I hope that it answers a lot of questions about these 2 rubbers.
topsheet is still in good condition, it's starting to get a bit tattooed
and seems to be losing grippiness. looping from far back is still great
but close to the table drives are getting harder if not impossible. i am
not sure if this is b/c of my swing style or if it's the rubber itself,
but loop driving from close to the table is VERY hard.
This rubber is still great for blocking and punching at balls. Serves
are great for fast ones but lack spin with the slower and shorter ones.
