About the rubbers: Gambler Zero Classic is a mechanical spin type rubber, generating spin exclusively via grip. Zero’s non-tacky surface is ideal for away table play or flat hitting (just like Japan or Euro rubber). While Zero is geared for the intermediate to beginning player it is still very capable of generating high speed and spin. Speed: 97 Spin: 94 Control: 88
