Xiom Vega Europe DF - A spinny OFF rubber

When reading the name Xiom Vega Euro DF, one probably associates this rubber with the Vega Euro which is available for quite some time. Contrary to what one might expect, both rubbers are indeed quite independent of each other. The Euro DF is not a successor model of the Euro, it is simply an independent, new version. The DF is not only faster, it is also more sensitive (more feeling), and softer than the classical Vega Euro. By means of this combination, especially passive strokes exhibit lots of feeling, and "walk with ease".

The Xiom Vega Euro DF table tennis rubber has an integrated technology called "Dynamic Friction" (DF). According to the manufacturer, this enables an overwhelming spin, and a pleasant ball contact. This technology also makes the topsheet slightly sticky, hence, it exhibits more grip than the Euro version (which does not include the DF technology). According to the manager (Isaac Lee) the aim was to introduce a TT rubber which is able to easily develop spin, and which simultaneously provides good control.

Compared to the Vega Euro, which only seems close, the Euro DF clearly demonstrates increased spin and catapult-like effects. Therefore, this rubber develops a kind of momentum which is particularly positive when playing blocks. The catchy topsheet of the Xiom Vega Europe DF is somewhat more elastic compared to the Europe. The inner rubber layer is relatively soft, and has fine pores. This suggests the assumption that this rubber has a lot of momentum. In practical field tests, this assumption turned out to be true. Another positive feature of the Europe DF table tennis rubber is its relatively low weight which is comparable to other similar products.

Practically speaking: When making your first strokes with the Xiom Vega Europe DF, you can indeed feel the momentum and characteristic of this rubber in a positive way. Especially opening topspins, but also spinny interludes, are quite easy to handle (and exhibit much rotation!). The trajectory of the ball is long and flat. This becomes particularly evident compared to the Vega Euro. Its deficits are predominantly hard finishers which, however, was to be expected. Passive strokes, such as chopped balls, blocks, and counters, are quite easy to handle. Another positive aspect of the Xiom Vega Euro DF is receiving and returning serves. Because of the long ball-bat-contact time the ball literally penetrates/drills into the rubber, and leaves the racket with a clearly perceivable feedback. Hence, one can effectively adjust the appropriate rebounce-angle of the ball by adjusting your wrist (the increased ball-bat contact time allows for an increased proprioceptive input, resulting in a better motor performance).

Alternatives to the Xiom Vega Europe DF

The Xiom Vega Euro DF is a recommendation for those of you who judge the Vega Euro as being slightly too slow, and who judge the rubbers Pro and Tour as being too fast, or hard. Compared to the Vega Euro, spin, catapult, and basic dynamics are enhanced. Hence, the Euro DF is a successful further development!

Xiom Vega rubbers for uncompromising attackers

  • Xiom Vega Asia: A table tennis rubber for uncompromising attackers who rely on very hard, direct, and penetrating rubbers. Hint: A high training workload is necessary in order to be able to control this rubber.
  • Xiom Vega Asia DF: This TT rubber exhibits a similar sponge hardness, but a softer topsheet compared to the Vega Asia. The area of application of the Asia DF is very variable. Note that this rubber still exhibits much penetrating power!
Xiom Vega rubbers for topspin players

  • Xiom Vega Pro: This rubber is made for topspin players who intensively use their arms preferring hard, direct rubbers with maximum spin development. BESTSELLER & an explicit recommendation from TT-SHOP.COM.
  • Xiom Vega Japan: A table tennis rubber for variable topspin players who often use soft preparing strokes, but also hard finishers.
Xiom Vega rubbers for the controlled offensive

  • Xiom Vega Euro: This rubber is intended for controlled attackers who rely on a good feedback of the ball, and sufficient dynamics in order to always be able to take the initiative following safe topspins / blocks.
  • Xiom Vega Euro DF: In contrast to the Vega Asia DF, the DF version of the Vega Europe exhibits a slightly increased speed! In case you like the Vega Europe, but prefer a bit more power (whilst the other properties are the same), you should try this rubber.
  • Xiom Vega Elite: This rubber "forgives" errors and mistakes; behaves in a very pleasant, safe way. Furthermore, the Vega Elite provides sufficient dynamics when playing controlled attacking strokes.
