Much better than the old one.

I use it without booster and is faster than h3 neo with booster.

Easier to use,you can play it like a Evolution MXS, is a tacky rubber but not as h3 neo.

High spin but on strong topspin h3 neo generate higher spin.

I like it a lot on the FH. I try to use it on BH but was to hard for my BH.

yes it's possible to play with it on BH. The throw is very high, and it's just a bit softer than the 54 deg. GT. It's taking some time for me to get used to and it's definitely harder than just about anything I've ever tried on my BH, except for the original GT, but it has spin that I don't think I've ever experienced with the other (non-Chinese) rubbers I've used. The people I practice with at my club all say the spin I generate is very difficult for them to deal with, so I'm going to be sticking with this for now. After playing with a firm, tacky rubber like this that has the German sponge it's hard to go back to some of the other rubbers I've used such as Rhyzm Tech, Rhyzer 43, etc.

I tried this rubber last night on a Joola Zelebro it had Rhyzer 48 on the other side. Golden Tango PS has a higher throw than Rhyzer 48 and is a lot slower. The top sheet has a mild tack to it and really spins the new ball very well. The sponge feels medium hard to me something like 39 degree dhs blue sponge when it's boosted. This rubber can be played fh or bh but might be soft for some people's fh. Overall this is a spinny rubber that is easy to play/control.

Recently i also tried the 2.0 but with booster, amazing

I already decide to you this rubber on fha

I don't understand why Tibhar don't want to sell the hybrid serie in Europe like Joola do with the Goldens

Yes it is in a way, except that it's made in Germany, whereas some other hybrids  are made in China.

I switched to this rubber fh/bh on my Viscaria. Feels like a softer faster H3 Neo. Don't get me wrong it's still hard just not unboosted Chinese rubber hard. If you are playing with a Chinese rubber and are getting tired of boosting this is a nice option. Don't plan on playing this like a regular ESN rubber you need to use a brushing technique and it doesn't flat hit well bit to be expected from a Chinese type top sheet

I've been wanting to try this, but it sounds like it might be too soft coming from TG2 Neo and H2 Neo (I don't boost them, just play them straight from the package).  Maybe the original Golden Tango would be a better option?

I'm not sure about the hardness of TG2 but Golden Tango PS is 50 degree ESN which is 38-39 degree on a Chinese rubber.

My TG2 Neo and H2 Neo are both 39 degrees.

After reading other international reviews about its speed and tack levels, GT PS sounds like it might be like a Skyline 3-60 with a harder sponge and factory tuning.  I always liked S3-60.

Can anyone else share the throw angle compared to TG2 Neo or MX-S (or even Sanwei Target National, DHS Skyline 3-60 Mid)?  One person says the throw is lower than H3, another says it is very high, and I've never really figured out H3 Neo (I didn't find the throw all that high).  I have the most experience with TG2 Neo and MX-S, and for the way I play their throws are nice.

A lot faster, and very spinny also

Feels like a slightly harder MX-P with semi tacky topsheet, slightly slower. A whole different beast from fully Chinese rubbers, in a good or bad way depending on the way you look at it.

Very controlled on Stiga Rosewood VII for my level, feels kind of muted on TB ALC

Was planning to try this on my FH. Would like to know how it compares to mx-p and h3 in brushy strokes like serves, pushes, loops etc. Also, how is the durability? Does it feel almost immortal like the h3? Or does it feel dead after a few months (cuz of the euro sponge maybe).

I was typing on my phone...

It's just better in most ways if you pair it with a fast-ish blade, the semi-tacky surface doesn't affect the speed much which makes it unique to hybrid rubbers, it is nearly the same speed as my Aurus Prime

Once the tack fades away, it still has those chinese rubber characteristics which I like

Slightly heavier than Aurus Prime, haven't boosted it yet.

Guys again I will say. This rubber is one of a few/its kind - the speed is amazing, plays nearly as fast as my Aurus Prime, and the security when countering/touching is better than stock ESN rubbers. This is a rubber worth trying and you will not be wanting to boost this once you try it on an ALC/ZLC blade.

Remember, SmackDAT said it first ;)

I have been playing with this rubber on my BH since it first came out a few months ago.  I like it much better than the original 54 degree Golden Tango. It's just a little bit softer, and can be used either on the BH or the FH.  Another 2150 player at my club just bought it to replace his Tenergy and he didn't notice any drop off in performance.  
The tacky top sheet really generates a lot of spin, and the German sponge has the speed most of the Chinese tacky rubbers lack.  It is slightly heavier than many other rubbers, and it does have a very high throw angle, but it's a very good rubber and it's only $45!

Since the last great Joola rubber (Samba NTEC, which soaked booster and played almost exactly like classic speedglue) I've been burned by Joola repeatedly, by rubbers that failed to live up to their hype.

Joola Energy
Joola Samba+
Joola Samba Tech

If they can't make a rubber that feels like Samba with speed glue, you'll pardon me if I am skeptical of their ability to make a rubber that feels like Tuned H3 Provincial.
