I'm using Andro hexer grip ( 45degree) on both Xiom feel ax and Yasaka Extra. 

Its very similar to Victas v15 stiff. 

Topsheet is firm, very very grippy, very very durable and not that bouncy.

Sometimes it feels like non tacky a Dhs h3 topsheet with a euro sponge.

Its fast but not tenergy, mxp, bluestrom kind of fast. Very spinny ( tenergy kind of spinny).

To me the only down side is throw angle is a bit too low and its not that bouncy so its not that easy to play away from the table. I had to adjust my bat angle a lot!
My previous rubber was t80 fx and its throw angle is higher than hexer grip.

Maybe thick but soft allwood blades or balsa+carbon blades would solve that throw angle issue. 
Still great rubber. I have to say again that rubber is durable! Better than tenergy for sure...

Cant agree more. Just cut and glued it yesterday, topsheet very grippy and soft.

Very good for looping, kinda slow (i used on off- blade, victas fire fall fc), same speed as my old vega pro (max). very high throw.

I'm interested as well.

I played with G-1 once over a year ago, so by no means in depth, but if I recall G-1 has a higher throw, harder top and overall feel than Powergrip. I struggled brushing with G-1, but never fail with Powergrip.

If G-1 plays a bit hard, then FastArc C-1 would be an alternative.

G-1 definitely has a harder feel overall than the hexer grip and pg. G-1 is definitely a bit harder to use than both, but also more rewarding.

I've been using Hexer Powergrip and Hexer Grip on a few different blades of varying hardnesses and flex. I quickly gave up on Grip because I struggle with anything softer than 47 degrees, though its spin capabilities are on par with Rasant Grip, an old favorite of mine. Hexer Grip throws a touch higher and felt less controlled than Rasant Grip for reference.

For me, MX-S has long been the top dog of ESN spin capabilities, but I think Powergrip might be the new king. Powergrip is one of the best non-tacky brushing rubbers I've ever used right up there with MX-S. The difference between the two is Powergrip is more Euro/Jap where MX-S is more like a non-tacky Chinese rubber. Its easier to get height with Powergrip and doesn't require as much pure brushing or quality positioning, though it still requires it. Powergrip is slower than MX-S, but has a similar crispy feel. 

As others have mentioned, Powergrip shines in service. Holy mother is that thing spin heavy. One of the higher level players at the club couldn't believe he couldn't get his receives over the net. While it is spinny on every blade I tried, it is incredible on hinoki.

I think my only gripe with Powergrip and Grip is this weird, random non-linearity -- in passive play sometimes the ball will just die and in active strokes sometimes the ball will launch further than expected, but only sometimes. Its not a linear slowing like I've experienced with Rakza X, MX-S, TG2 Neo, S3-60, etc. and it has occurred on all the blades I tested them on. Edit: Of course, this could just be a technique issue of mine.
