    I was looking around, what more Victas could offer for me, and I just found out, that this is essentially the same very popular Super Ventus rubber, which was initially introduced by TSP. I tried this rubber with max thickness on both sides of two very different blades: Yinhe 970XX ALC and Yinhe Purple Dragon 537 S. Which was common during experimenting with these two blades, that Ventus Extra has surprisingly balanced playing characteristics with medium/medium high throw (well behaving, no steep changes in throw while applying more force), high (but not exceedingly high) dynamics, and a precise linear response to the power input. The rubber topsheet is noticeably dense and firm (comparable to Nittaku Fastarc G-1), has a generally high quality feeling – and the red sheet is slightly translucent. There is absolutely no tack to the topsheet, but the ball is gripped well, and grippiness is sustained over a longer usage time. The pink sponge has relatively small pores, which translates to medium bounciness in general (again, very similar to Fastarc G-1). The rubber itself is rather heavy, it weighs around 51.5g when cut and glued – but this is not a problem for me. Somehow I feel more security than expected with this rubber while performing my shots, so it is surely going to be a favourite one. Anyway, a lesson is learned, as the topsheet is firm, this rubber is better matched with stiffer all-wood blades than reinforced ones, as if it is too bouncy, the dwell time is noticeably reduced, which in turn asks for very precise shot execution both in timing and movement. Paired with the PD 537 S, this setup is bordering at Off/Off+ speed, as deadly fast and precise finishers can be hit with it, but the racket came together with a total weight of 198.5g, which definitely needs some more muscles to be maintained.
