Hi,

Has anyone tried this rubber? If so would you be able to tell me a bit more about it?

Also does anyone know what hardness it is?

I tried it for literally 2 mins on a mates bat and I really liked it and was surprisingly impressed, so much so I might have to buy myself a couple of sheets!

I had it a long time ago. It was okay, but I felt it lacked in the spin department. For that reason, I didnt really like it much. 
Current Setup:
Sittiho Hinoki ALC, T80(max), Baracuda(max)
Official USATT Rating 1815
Current estimated level: Bad Day ~ 1900 Good Day ~ 2100 (In Asia since 2015, no USATT events here)

Had a long break due to injury so going for a slower setup and I know a player who uses it on a Korbel and his shots are insane!

Can you remember what hardness it was?

When I had a knock with it the other night only for a couple of minutes it seemed very easy to lift backspin with it.

I guess its all subjective and possibly partially dependent on the blade.

Do you by any chance know the hardness of it?

Original Magna was very spinny. Magna TCII, not so much.

I believe Magna TC II is 38 degrees hardness. Like Boost TC.

That's on the usual Euro scale, normally used for "advertised" rubber hardness (e.g. where Rhyzm 425 is 42.5 degrees), not the one where Tenergy is 36 degrees.

38 is very soft.
