Notes: Focus 3 snipe is an improved and lighter version of the original Focus 3. This rubber uses mechanical grip (like European style rubbers), to provide spin and speed. If you liked original Focus 3, this is a better product in every way. The speed rating given is maximum, this is a manufacturer rating and while the rubber does have some kick is not 120, but closer to 100.

Submit a short review about RITC 729 Focus 3 Snipe.
Like many chinese rubbers, this one comes in different hardness : I'm playing with a 42° one (though I'd say it feels more like 40°), 2.1mm thickness, on my BH. It's a european-style rubber, nothing close from a chinese hard-and-tacky rubber.
Seems to be a pretty versatile rubber : it reminds me a lot of Sriver FX I used to play with, but a bit faster. Not too fast, not tacky and not that spinny either (say, nothing better than a european rubber such as Desto F3, but still decent), and a pretty good control. The topsheet seems of a medium hardness, which makes this rubber suited for almost any kind of player. It performs well on every stroke : topspin, blocks and counter-attack, backspin strokes...
I just wouldn't advise it to attackers who are used to playing further from the table, as it wouldn't be powerful enough to deliver attacking strokes.
I'm not yet sure if I'll keep it for the whole season (waiting for a LKT Rapid Sound as well), but I definitely won't have any issue using this rubber for tournaments and official competitions.
I posted a review on this rubber here:
The topsheet of Focus 3 Snipe is of the best quality I've seen out of 729 but the sponge crumbles and tears so easily and I only was able to transfer it to another paddle once before the sponge was unusable. If durability is a concern, look elsewhere.
Otherwise it was a easily easy to control rubber. It generates very little spin but is easy to control and fast. Blocks were very easy.
A terrific rubber for beginners. A cheap way to learn every stroke. Nicely behaved and honest.
use on forehand of my gergely.average in everything.great control and block.linear, accurate pinpoint shots.good for opening loop followed by accurate drives.fast when you need it.
