XIOM Omega II
AWESOME POWER AND EXTRA PRECISION WITHOUT SPEED GLUE.
PERFORMANCE PROVED BY TOP PLAYERS.
Top players are already using OMEGA II for their games
- without any speed glues. The breakthrough technology TENSOR BIOS
integrated the speed glue effect at maximum inside of OMEGA II. OMEGA II
without any speed gluing demonstrates more powerful performance than any
rubbers heavily glued. Extra control precision adds the big advantage to
the success of your technical strokes in high speed game. OMEGA II
developed for the top players in very offensive style needs a few days
of practice for full adoption, because the power of built-in effect is
far beyond your experience !

Review by haggisv:
"Exceptionally soft 40 degrees European sponge.

This is currently XIOM's biggest selling rubber. "
Review: XIOM Omega II (MAX black) on a
TSP Balsaplus 4.5 blade / Galaxy carbon blade
1. The reviewer:
Intermediate to high level club level player, modern defender (Chinese
style looper on FH). Blade TSP Balsaplus 4.5 and Galaxy carbon blade.
2. Physical Properties:
Packaging is awesome, the best I've seen!. Sheet looks of top quality
and is made in Germany (ESN). It also came with a tensor adhesive
protection sheet. Topsheet feels soft and non-tacky but grippy and very
smooth. Measured sponge hardness is 35deg (with respect to other rubbers
Sponge Hardness table).
Topsheet did not feel as brittle like some of the other German Tensors,
so perhaps this one will last a little longer.
It's a fast rubber, but not uncontrollably fast, probably due to the
good spin. The medium soft sponge does not feel too springy and it quite
controllable in the short game, and not too sensitive to spin
On loops it takes little effort to generate good speed on loops. You can
feel it dig into the sponge and catapult the ball back out.
Spin on these loops was not bad but not high either. Looping harder adds
to speed, but also adds quite a lot of spin. The harder carbon blade
worked a lot better than the soft Balsa blade, and this is what I think
it's meant for.
Smashes/hits are fast with decent sound, but not ultra fast.
Spin on serves and chops was decent but not outstading... you do need to
dig the ball into the rubber to get the spin. On slow to medium loops
the spin was good but not as high as I expected. However the harder I
started looper, the more spin I seemed to get, which is a very nice
property. This is a very good power-looper rubber with more spin the
harder you loop.
Control in the short game was pretty good, but you do need to play a
positive stroke as the rubber is fast. It feels quite insensitive to
spin on low impact which is great. For looping the control was very
good...the ball digs into the sponge giving you good dwell time and more
time to place the ball where you want. The higher spin on power loops
also made it easier to land the balls. Blocking was average as it felt a
little sensitive to spin... similarly counter-looping close-in was
harder due to it's sensitivity to spin, so taking a step back and
counter-looping was a lot better, and allowed you to load up the spin
6. Other Playing properties:
Throw of the rubber is medium, although it feels medium-high on faster
loops/counterloops. It has quite good glue feel and sound.
It does feel like several other medium hardness German tensors, but
feels less spinny on slow loops but more spinny on fast loops.
8. Other comments Other unique properties...
The topsheet did not feel as fragile compared to many other German
Tensors, so it might last a little longer. This is a real nice power-looper's
rubber with enough speed to hit it past virtually everyone. It performs
better on the harder composite blades than it does on softer blade.
