Reviews of Andro Rasanter R42 (24)
Someone asked me about the differences about R37 and R42 and if i Had any experience with Butterfly 05fx or Donic blue fire M3 or JP-03 to compare with. Here is my answer:
"My setup is:
FH: R42 max (2.3mm)
BH: R37 max (2.3mm)
Blade: Yasaka Sweeden Extra (5 ply All+)
Control: R37 is more controllable than R42, but both have superb control
Spin: R37 = R42 on spin, not much a difference here.
Speed: R37 isn't the fastest rubber but it has an ok speed, but it's awesome to improve your techniques. I love this rubber. R42 is a bit faster but isn't so fast too.
Both have a greet dwell time, so It's enjoyable to play with. The throw angle of the R42 is higher than the R37, so the ball tends to get over the table more on R42, but hey, as I said, they are both super controllable.
A friend of mine when played with my R37 he got in love and bought one for him. He likes it a lot.
I have no experience on the rubber you said. I had a tenergy 05 before. It's a beast! You can do wonders with it, but its hard to tame. T05 is for advanced players. A lot of spin, really fast, not controllable.
I went from a fast setup in the past for a all+ setup. Why? To get more and more consistent in my game and to get better on my techiniques. It was a wise decision. I don't regret it."
Excelente sensacin en todas las fases del juego, gran goma que permite arriesgar y aprender antes de dar el salto a un nivel superior.. Impresionante pero no brutal..
He cambiado de madera y ahora utilizo la R42 en mi revs pero con espesor de 2.0mm (mejor sensacin que la ultramax) puedes realizar potentes mates, devoluciones de mates, cortar lejos de la mesa, lo que quieras.... Una autentica goma para cualquier tipo de juego, con velocidad, efecto y control muy superior a la competencia. La recomiendo en maderas de dureza media.
Im using with korbel blade on FH side with 2.0mm. Good control, awesome spin speed for forehand is good too. Awesome looping,blocks. Actually very good in short game too. Sponge is not so hard, i like softer rubbers, awesome rubber. Maybe i will try in few monts this rubber to backand. we will see
I put this rubber in 2.0mm on a treiber CI. It has a good speed for a soft rubber, I think it is faster than a rakza 7 soft. This rubber is spinny, not as a tenergy 05fx but more than the rakza7s.
I love to loop against baspin with this rubber,as the soft sponge gets an great dwell time and allows you to go through the sponge . Everything is easy with this blade due to it's control, so everybody can play with this rubber
Good for controlled attackers. Very easy open ups, good spin, feel, dwell time, very short serves (if you want), and lightweight. You can play short balls, but when you take more power and speed, you get it too. Not as agressive as Tibhar tensors (for example MXP), it's moderated. If you want and search this style, you get it. You can hold ball on table everytime. Tried on Killerspin CQ, in 2,0mm.
Rubbers that I have used: Razka X, Razka 7S, Battle II, Mendo, Super 999, Desto F1, Andro 37 and Andro 42.
This is the best BH rubber for me. Spin and speed is crazy + very good control and feeling.
A bit spinner and faster than my Razkas, a bit less than Battle II but I love Andro more because of natural rubber scent.

I use it for FH. Nice speed and spin. Easy to control. May be I will try R47 for more speed.
This rubber is very Versatile. It can do huge spin on the FH side and BH it’s even more amazing. Control is awesome when I tried it on my Sardius Blade. Speed is optimal not too fast and not slow either.
Big fan of original Rasant. Now that it is discontinued, was looking for replacement. This is not a good replacement as feel with thinner topsheet and softer sponge is unlike feeling of original Rasant. Even more importantly, it lacks the all-round versatility of Rasant. If Rasant plays like an improved Sriver, this rubber has more in common with earlier ESN products.
Suits me better than R47. Easier to play. Closer version of Rasant grip.
UPDATE: Attached my R42 on fast carbon blade and it's definitively a great rubber. Reminds me of T05.
A must try!
Spin and Speed is just perfect (not too fast and sensitive to income spin). Allround+/off players will benefit from this rubber. much like T80.
I have had R42 on my forehand for a couple of months and it has been great. Pushing gets decent spin, topspins are fast and spinny both close to the table and far away and the control is fantastic. Service is pretty good. It's great for flat hitting, redirecting and smashing, the power is as good as any rubber out there. I have one complaint, the throw angle is too high for my liking though and shots often sit up in the air. But all in all, it's a solid rubber for medium to high-level players.
Amazing control,speed manageable,not too fast,and spin in decent like Rakza 7(maybe a tiny bit less).Spin reduces A LITTLE BIT in 4 weeks(playing 4 hr/d).But still a good rubber.
Soft and Powerful stroking while palying mid distance from the table. I believe this is an upgrade from the Green Rasant. But more Control.
The V42 and R42 are almost similar rubbers and with just a few differences. Both have the same softness even if topsheet is considered together with the sponge. Basically, both rubbers are medium soft. Both are very bouncy and fast and I would put the speed as faster than a Xiom Vega Europe. In a way, the R42 is a notch spinnier than the XVE. This is best suited for the backhand (both V42 and R42). Intermediate players can use for some time to further develop their strokes and skills. Both rubbers are at low to medium height in arc when looping. Best strokes for this rubbers are either smashing or blocking. V42 = 64 grams uncut; R42 = 66grams uncut
I have used Ternergy 05-FX for 6 months on Butterfly Zhang Jike S-ZLC. Compared with 05-FX as follow:
1/ speed: 05-FX is a bit faster
2/ spin: same good spin
3/ blocking: R42 is much better
4/ loop against heavy spin: 05-FX much better
5/ control in general: R42 slightly better
In fact I am really happy with the Andro Rasanter R42 for my backhand and plan to use it for a while . I prefer Tenerhy 05-FX for my forehand
Rasanter R42 ultramax is light with soft sponge, great for liftibg backspin balls. Only has this rubber wirh minimum use so can't comment on durability for now
