Bought some vega pro since i can't shell out 80/sheet anymore it's financially impossible for me. 

Tried it for 30 min and here's my thought. 

1. Vega pro is slower and less spinny. For t05, the harder you hit the harder it will go, the spring sponge speak for itself. The power from t05 is more like exponential than linear.  

Tenergy power = tx

vega pro power = vx + b

where b > 0, t > v, and x = how much power you put. That's how i felt when i play with vega power. For lower brush gear or push it's def spinner compare to t05. 

2. The grip is pretty much the same. For now i'll stick with vega pro for practicing and training, and whenever i go to tourny or will know there's an important up coming match i'll switch back to t05 for bigger guns.

Then why did you not use an exponential equation?

Can't come up with any, a ^2 seems too big of a difference.

speed and power comes from the correct form. As long as it's not some kind of super low throw trashy rubber that will lose grip if i go too hard. Vega pro feels like a beginner rubber to me, which is fine; I want my opponents to block my shots so I can practice a little. Unless the player is 2150+ my loop quality is just too high. I got into a bad habit of expecting the shot to be over once I made it.

I use vega pro for year. Before this I used t05 on fh. I play controlled allround offensive style, compete in lower level official leagues. Here is my experience with these two rubbers:
T05 is better, more catapult, more spin, Twice more expensive, 1.5 tmes shorter lifetime. T05 is mostly hevier, but occasionaly sheet of vegga pro can be equaly heavy.
Vega pro is similar throw angle, more linear, tames your blade and allows you to play similar game like with t05, but slightly slower and less sharp, less errors and less winners. Which is good on lower levels because forces you to learn better consistant loop :) My game and results improved slightly with vega pro.
Both rubers after one month loses sharpness, softens and start feeling like chewing gums, so I have to reglue (i use only water based glue) and it adds some more lifetime.T05 for me lasts 2.5-3 months, vega pro averages 4.
At the end I use vega pro both sides because tired to change rubbers frequently and to spend lot of money on butterfly products.

When you say "sharp" do u mean the rubber become mushy? Right now i am pretty happy with the vega pro as it feels harder than my t05. Granted the t05 is already 4 month old, i already forgot what a new sheets of 05 feels like.

Yes, new rubbers grab ball better, with expected throw angle. I call it sharpness :)
Both become mushy after some period and you have to compensate somehow.

Generaly, most people use rubbers for much longer periods than me, so this mushiness is pretty subjective thing.

One more thing, when I replace t05 after 2.5 - 3 months it looks like used rubber, surface is far from new, edges are damaged (even if you dont hit the table, it chips easily). Vega pro surface after 3 months is almost like new.
