In 2.0mm you have the feeling that you could do ANYTHING to the ball therefore enchance your control over the game. LITERALLY.
However it is recommended to use medium feel blade for looping and smashing optimally, hence you could easily set how spinny or speedy your loop will be. For hitting and quick stroke with topsheet spin, you could use rigid blade such as Schlager Carbon. With softer blade, this rubber will turn your weapon into a super spinny loop machine.
As a defender, I would say that this rubber gives epic backspin in expense of a bit more sensitivity to spin (medium hardness with a tad soft feel sponge and topsheet), worth a try :D
Smashes are easy since this rubber could bottom out easily with power. Blocking is a joy.
Serves are good if you know how to use it.

Tried on blade LKT Instinct+

My dad is 1200 USRated player. He don't practice at all. Once a week, on Fridays night he plays table tennis. He goes on tournaments twice a year. Year ago he switched to this rubber in 2.0mm on both sides. Guess what: USRating went to 1500+ just with rught rubbers. He love them, I tried them and like them a lot. To me they are same as Sriver or Mark V, maybe a just a notch slower, but everything else is same. You don't believe it, then try it. It is cheap up to $20 per sheet. You will not be dissapointed. PEACE

the volcano is a very average rubber. not fast not real slow, for alrounders our beginners who want to learn our have control, not a real great rubber In my opinion, it lacks gears and although the rubber is very cheap it is not good enough for playing professinal our semi pro table tennis.
Better go for a good rubber right away and dont spend it on this on
