XP & XT
If you're a gluer they rock.
I've got a thread back there somewhere about them.
They have as good a glue cork as anything I have including my high dollar
yellow gp3 sponges.
They're so light it's almost too light.
I have a cut sheet of red xt that's 32g, and a whole sheet is 49.
I'd like them to be a little tackier, at least the red, but the sponge is
so soft they still spin, and on topspin the spin is right up there with rubbers
like supersonic s40.
I just want to say that after 6-10 months playing 2-4 times
a week with Black Globe 999T on a 2.0mm 38 Japanese sponge I have found a
The LKT Pro XT sheet
-much much lighter
-noticeably less tacky
-produces far more mechanical spin.
It also produces a resoundingly suspicious
"F3-like" *POP!* during smashes and drives. And like the F3 it has a
soft yellow sponge and a very soft topsheet. However, unlike F3 it is somewhat
tacky and provides greater versatility on serves.
I second that - the black LKT Pro XT will be my forhand
rubber of choice today until I reached 2000, not glued. :-D Don't know about the
It is soft and light, but not that kind of soft based on a
less quailty sponge ( substantically more holes), unlike lighter Chinese rubber
I had tried. As far as I can tell, the topsheet is less attractive comparing to
other German/Japaness rubber right out of enevlop, but it plays everything I
ever wanted better than any rubber I owned so far, whether it is just right on
my current blade or not, I am not sure.
The black topsheet looks somewhat similar to other Chinese
rubber I owned (729, DHS, 999) yet is soft and tacky, but not so sticky. It kind
of increase my confident in looping underspin.
been using 2 or 3 layers of speedglue on it. Sound was not as loud as i
expected, but maybe just because it needs to be broken in more to get the sound,
but still nice corky sound when hit. very spinny for even small strokes, on hard
strokes, it feels like a donic desto rubber. its pretty fast, maybe slightly
slower then innova premium. control is better then the innova premium, and spin
is higher too. it is lighter then the innova premium too, and makes it one of
the lightest rubbers i have yet to try. hard to do touch shots and drop shots on
the xt though.
-- very smooth sponge, smoother than DONIC F3, the rubber sheet is slightly
tacky -- if we compare the degree of hardness with japanese or european sponges,
i would say that this ais about 33° (similar to GP3 for the specialistes), the
sponge is quite reactive like à tensor sponge , may be a little bit slower than
tried the XT Friday. It's the best Chinese rubber, speedglued, that I have ever
used. It has great click and speed. I think speedgluing loopers might really
have very soft sponge and they glue just as loud as some of the more expensive
sponges I pay high dollar for.
Better than, say, dawei cannon.
I'm just wishing theyd get them up on the site so some people would try
them and I can get a second opinion.
LKT rubbers aren't very tacky either, although the XT version is a little
tackier than the goldway.
The xt version probably compares with red regular geospin or higher in
The XP feels more like highpoint or some donic rubber.
By the way, the topsheets are much prettier than what we've had to this
point, and even the lettering is very sharp.
