Stiga has achieved the ultimate answer for the non-glue
era! Boost rubbers with the new TTS Technology with "TransTension
Sponge" and new materials generate maximum tension and sponge power.
Boost rubbers are fast, bouncy, and with a tremendous catapult effect.
Boost TP (Tension Power) has a medium sponge and is
great for the leading players who demand ultimate spin and speed
combined with a sensitive touch.
- Speed: 96
- Sponge Hardness: Medium

Stiga Boost TP Review:
Used it on Acoustic tonight. Max
Sponge hardness similiar to Magna.
Grippy topsheet, better than tensors, Slight tack, that maybe because of
the protector sheet, may wear off later. Grip is less than Tenergy but
seems as good as most conventional inv. rubbers, say, Sriver etc.
Glue feel; not as pronounced as softish tensors. But plays like it's
glued with 1-2 layers.
Speed; seems a bit slower than Tenergy, similiar to med Tensors.
Throw; easily lower than Tenergy and maybe some tensors.
Spin; more potential than tensors. Grippy topsheet helps a lot. Arcs are
low, quite effective.
My opinion is based on 2-3 hours playing (mainly friendly matches). So I
may revise my comments later. I didn't feel awkward at all from the
beginning and got used to it very quick. For me it looks like a better
product than Tensors. BTW one of the coaches at the club also had Boost
TCs on a fast composite Stiga blade. That also seemed like a promising
rubber for players who like glueing soft rubbers like Sriver FX, Samba,
Innova UL etc. A bit more tack than TP, bouncy, loud etc. Actualy it
reminded me glued up Banda Sigma.
