When I unpacked the OVII CG, I could discover a very interestingly composed rubber. The rubber is not supplied as usual with a papered cover as protection for the rubber surface, but with a matte plastic rubber foil. After removing it, I was a bit surprised, as the topsheet is only slightly sticky and seems more like “only” extremely grippy. Overall, the rubber seems more “European” than expected, despite the hard sponge.
The pimple structure is kept very short. The sponge has very fine pores, which means there is hardly any elasticity. Nevertheless, I could press the rubber a bit during the thumb pressure test, but this was only due to the topsheet.
In terms of weight, the Omega VII China Guang is among the heavier rubbers, although in this hardness must be spoken of a lightweight. With packaging, my rubber (black, 2.1mm) weighed 112.43g. The uncut rubber carries 72.94g, while on the racket itself (fiberglass OFF test wood 150x157mm) 50.05g are left.
