So an update regarding the release of Xiom Omega VII.
OMEGA VII Pro is expected to be in the market officially on November 1st.
Omega VII Europe is tentatively coming in March 2018.
Omega VII Asia is still undergoing testing and does not currently have a release date.

The skipping of Omega 6 was done for marketing purposes.
"OMEGA 7 is by far our greatest accomplishment in rubber, so we felt Omega 6 was not right name for it. We wanted to emphasize that this is whole new rubber. It is a serious jump of technology and table tennis rubber in general."

Omega V Asia is by far the best forehand rubber I have ever used. It's unfortunate that I need to wait so long for Omega VII Asia, probably at least a year from now. I may want to sample one of the earlier iterations, maybe Pro but we'll see.

Is it going to be Xiom's version of the Ultra Max Sponge+Thin Topsheet?  I hope they're more original than that.

I've been wanting to try OVA for a long time and one is finally on the way.

I feel like that's unlikely. I realize "a serious jump in technology" is mostly marketing speak but it does imply that it's going to be different than its competitors.

Yes that makes sense, although if it's going to be an ESN rubber, they can really only choose from their existing technologies, and tweak it to get their own new unique rubber.

Good grief, Xiom really are a little bit crazy.  Skipping a number?  But they really know how to stoke up interest, so fair enough.

If nothing else this move will put a little bit of space between OVII and the glut of ESN releases we've had recently.  There was a risk of being lost in the crowd.

Have to wait and see if it really will be something totally new or just a remix of recent releases.  Delay aside, Xiom have posted a few little teasers on their facebook page over the last few months about the new Omega.  Here's one:


This was a great signature until the abs ball ruined it.

Why do they want to release the VII Pro in November when everyone will already have some new rubbers for the new season?

When you say they need to choose from existing technology do you mean because they need to have characteristics associated with the Omega series to make it fit in and be familiar? If not, why are they required to choose from existing technologies? What prevents them from creating and using something new?

Like Andy said, there are a ton of new releases right now. It's a good idea to be releasing something fresh months later when the hype of all of these current rubbers die down.
