The JOOLA Dynaryz AGR is the aggressive type of rubber in the Dynaryz series. This was built purely for offensive purposes and is a monster in both in and out of the table. Both the AGR and ACC versions of the Dynaryz have this specification on each of their topsheets which has a 0.5mm spacing in between pimples, 1.7mm width of each pimple and 0.9mm height of each pip. Both have the same pip and topsheet structure but differs in sponge hardness and some other things that I will mention below. The topsheet is matted red and black with purple sponge. I think this is still a thin topsheet thick sponge type of ESN rubber.
The AGR version is the faster one between the 2 rubbers. The speed difference is just big. When using the AGR in a 5 ply limba-limba blade, you could already feel the force of your drives on impact and it is even more evident when using a composite blade. I only used a koto-carbon-aramid blade and I already felt the increase in speed multiple times. This rubber is not a joke. The speed is faster than the JOOLA Rhyzer Pro 50. The difference is that the JOOLA Rhyzer Pro 50 has more “gears” while the Dynaryz AGR is bouncy in all aspects even with shorts shots so you have to adjust a bit. In terms of bounciness, the AGR is faster than both Tenergy 64 or Tenergy 05. The difference between the Rhyzer 50 and the Dynaryz AGR is that the Rhyzer needs more sponge compression to produce fast and powerfull shots while the Dynaryz AGR is outright bouncy. It felt like I was using a pure carbon blade in the level of Primorac Carbon instead of just a Viscaria type blade when I was using the Dynaryz AGR so I should caution everyone that this is very fast.
Many will ask how is the spin of the Dynaryz AGR. I think this is their first rubber that I can confidently say that this has the spin in the level of Tenergy 05 but has much more power. It does have a slightly lower arc than T05. The arc is between that of Tenergy 05 and Tenergy 64 so I would put it at medium to medium-high if the Tenergy 05’s arc is medium-high to high arc.
The Dynaryz AGR has a very grippy topsheet that you can lift backspin balls with less effort. I have greatly observed this when receving underspin/backspin balls in the backhand. It has this good amount of bite with the ball either with a flick or opening loops in both the backhand and forehand. So far, this is the spinniest non-tacky JOOLA rubber in their arsenal. The Golden Tango PS and vanilla versions are both spinny but pales in comparison with the power. On stronger shots, the Dynaryz AGR has more juice and more power to offer.
I really admire this rubber because this still has a good amount of control despite its speed compared to other hard and fast rubbers in its class. I reckon this would be a hit among new rubbers that will come out this 2020. This is simply a superb rubber!
