Gsom,tried 5 counter loops against slow heavy top spins.
the 3rd one when I started to move 4 feet away went long the others all landed. I would say it DOESN'T have that problem.

Thank you very much! As we say in Russia: the man said, the man did.

So, to counterloop successfully, one should take the ball on the rise, not move back. Right?

Do these Stiga rubbers have something in common with Tibhar Nianmor, which was Japan made too?

I think no. Nianmor has an old gen sponge, it lacks spin and power without glue or booster. Airoc has obviously more topsheet spin and is more arcy when you do not engage the blade in your loop. Also, bh banana flick goes better with Airoc. When loopdriving 'through the ball', engaging both sponge and blade, Nianmor is on par.

That is the theory.  To clarify,given the slow loop was still rising at around 3 to 4 feet from the table I executed my counter closer than that on the first 2 then move a bit further to test the rubber there.  From further out the first one went long but the next 2 landed.

I would like to test an Airoc M or Astro M. But long ago i tested a Calibra LT sound and i did not like it at all. The rubor was like dead, no spin, los angle... Hope Airon are different (they are Japan made) to previous Stiga rubbers and ESN rubbers. I like Tenergy 05 for FH and 05 or 80FX for BH.

If you want them to be closer to Btfy I suggest you try Airo S in max. It has decent spin and speed.

I know thread have 6 years but Airoc M is very OK on very fast super zlc blade. IF you buy this rubber for 15-17 euro you will be happy because it gives you more time on backhand side. So after long time for table tennis this is very OK rubber
