Table Tennis Rubber: Der Materialsta Rubber Spectre
rubber compound with very interesting playing characteristics and colors. The SPECTRE is especially suited for near-table disruptive play with occasional excursions into the half-distance and is visibly resistant to rotation, but at the same time offers the full spectrum of offensive possibilities.
The great strength of the SPECTRE is the safe blocking of hard topspins, whereby even hard endstrokes of the opponent can be returned without any problems due to the resulting ball delay in passive play. The ball dips uncomfortably flat and creates a considerable flutter effect.
The sponge version of the SPECTRE allows a more pressured game and produces higher spin values and a bumpy ball trajectory compared to the OX version.
