Symmetry is a made in Japan short pips rubber developed and adapted for the plastic ball. The elastic sponge and built-in speed glue effect gives this rubber high speed and excellent spin possibilities. While it's spin generation is noteworthy for a short pips rubber, its ability to flat hit well is also surprisingly good. This allows for a very stable rubber that is proficient in most strokes relative to short pips. Opening loops against pushes will come back with heavy topspin, blocks and counters come back with very high but still manageable speed, and drives are sure to put pressure and finish points.
