V15, not V01

It's a 45 degree non ultramax sponge so I wouldn't expect too much from it.

It is very bouncy and spinny. A level less in speed compared to rhyzer 48 but just as spinny. Also faster than z1 bluestorm.

Yogi, with bouncy, do you mean hard to control? How does it compare to a T05?

Not hard to control but it is faster than t05 with less spin sensitivity.

Is there any reviews? how does it perform at lower gears (serve, receive, brush...) and at power play?

Just curious. What do those >15,>1 stand for in the names of the victas rubbers? Looks "special" to me and very hard to remember without knowing the thing behind these.

According to their web site V>15 Stiff does not exists.

It's a new rubber, they just haven't updated their site

Some stores sell it, e.g.:

or

Very excited to try this. V > 01 Stiff is fantastic, by far the best backhand rubber I've ever used (amongst Fastarc G-1, Hammand Pro Beta, Rakza X, Rakza 7). V > 15 Extra is okay, the catapult effect is great, but the spin is somewhat disappointing, however this is offset by the insensitivity to spin, which is probably the rubber's greatest strength. If this can generate more spin, while maintaining the ability to be unaffected by your opponents spin, it could be a truly great rubber.

I've played for ~2 hours with this last night. I'm not entirely sure why someone would prefer the V>15 Stiff over the V>15 Extra - its perhaps even less spin sensitive and perhaps a bit easier to handle on slower brush strokes. Besides that, I can't see any clear advantages over the Extra.

Extra seems faster even in 2.0mm vs a max Stiff.

I have now played over 6 hours with a max sheet and I think it is very good. Speed is important but control is a lot more so. I am not saying it is slow. Yogi's opinion is brief but I find it is correct.

Anyone who feels Z1 lacks something, they should look to get a sheet of the V15 Stiff. It is between MXP and ELP in hardness and only a little slower than MXP but the throw is higher. It needs skill though as it is not a slow rubber.

No smell of tuning whatsoever as opposed to MXP and the likes.

Number 15 is for year 2015 when Victas v15extra was introducted.

I played for 1 hour with V15 stiff on Yasaka Ma Lin soft carbon. It's little softer then v15extra with less spin and speed but more control.

A word of caution: I tested my V15 Stiff on a Boll ZLC yesterday. I played against a chopper and the bouncy nature of the rubber came out. It is was very hard for my not to overshoot the first topspin off a push and when it came to just putting back heavy chops on the table, the lack of control was worrying. I do not know what the V15 Stiff does on ALC blades but I have a feeling it is for all-wood only. The positive side was that three people mentioned that it was a little spinnier and faster than the MXP on the other side, but the difference was marginal. However, in terms of control, the MXP is 1000 times better.
