I bought this rubber at first to use on my BH, with a Focus II on my FH.
I could not block heavy loops properly with this sponge on my BH, because it would 'catapult' the ball over the table. (My blocking technic on my BH isn't the best either...)
However, I started playing this rubber on my FH and everything changed. I have the 2.0 mm sponge and am very happy with it. It has good control (I can block heavy loops with it on my FH), but also a lot of speed. I have found that I can play the ball flat and it responds very well, even with a lot of incoming top spin. It is also good at looping. Overall this is a good quality rubber that delivers a good all round experience.

Having picked up table tennis again after a 20 year break, I've been trying to settle on a good combination for myself. Forehand rubber should be spinny but with good control. After trying out a number of inverted rubbers, all promising 'outstanding' spin and control, I've decided FX Lightening is the one that lives up to its billing.

This rubber has fantastic control. It is hardly tacky at all, but it generates more spin than all my other tacky rubbers with mechanical spin. To take full advantage of this you need fast racquet speed and I would suggest using a light blade (it works a dream with Donic Cayman). Practicing 'brushing loops' against my coach, this was the only rubber that could trouble him. The lack of tackiness is really only an issue when it comes to generating spin on serve, but it can still do well with proper technique.

With the soft sponge, the racquet has excellent dwell time and gives you a real feel for every shot.
