I just stumbled across the most expensive rubber i have seen to date...
Joola Timeless Rubber for $129.95, seems to be made in Austria, why is the pricetag so high?
Does any of you know anything about it? or I may be wrong, is there another rubber more expensive?
Here is what Joola says about it:


  JOOLA Timeless Rubber

A new disturbance rubber based on anti loop technology.


Strategy
DEF-/ALL
Speed
low
Spin
medium
Control
extra high
Hardness
40°
Pimples / Pips
In

"JOOLA Timeless Rubber
The completely new structure of the rubber surface of Timeless was achieved by using a revolutionary production technique, which is completed by a ‘chemical burn’ of the rubber. In combination with a foamed rubber sponge the upper rubber provides a new, unique playing feel! Spin reversal and speed variations are now controllable for everybody!"

here is a link for it:

I think when it first came out , many players hadn't realised it was so brittle when transferring it from one blade to another so extra care and knowledge/research will save lots of money

It is an anti.  Sales volume will be low (unlike Tenergy) so I guess $130 is their way to recuperate their R&D.

Must be a good rubber to play with even the price is so stiff. You can search videos at youtube of some players playing with Joola Timeless. Sad thing is it might not last long.

Guys, try to look at it from the other side  - I may be mistaken here but price was the last thing to talk over about the rubbers from prott.cc  - all those national, personal and whatsoever more they sell there. May it be just the rubber for antispin players that will do the job for them like the H3N Nat boosted with dian chi do(?) for all amateur players here and there? Wink 
And then everything will settle on its place.
