I ordered black/red powercell MP 45 in 2.1 thickness.
They came in nice package. The rubber itself has no heavy smell of tuner. Nice glossy surface with red-orange porous sponge.

Attach both of them on ITC premiere XR and later switch side as Red is quite harder than black, it really does. At first the glossiness seem promising at first but get dirty very fast. Rubber itself need a really good care. Brittle fast at very first day. 

Feel and power.
First impression on warming up and hitting , DULL, dhurrrr!! immense of dwell time and control.
Top spin and loop seem promising, quite easy brushing loop, opening slow loop is great. Lot of player who tried my blade said it's a bit dull compare to modern rubber but what good is that they can always land ball on the table. Especially blocking and placement serve return.

A bit of impression that the rubber itself is strange, seem like the surface is not very tacky or grippy but dullness give dwell time.

Overall i'm still happy that rubber force me to loop more than hitting which is good for spin game.
The power loop doesn't lack of power as I use fast blade and power from myself.

Speed MPX is 10 I rate this one 8.
Ease of Spin generation Chinese rubber is 11/10 I rate this one 7-8.
Trajectory is medium with good off bounce spin.
Immense control - blocking is very solid.

Overall impression, love it.


Edit for correction.

It is like karis hard. Great if you hit through the sponge. Spin is above average.

I feel that Karis is more lively by notch, when playing with powercell, sometime i think I play with non tacky Chinese rubber. But on high gear power is good.
