The Nittaku Fastarc C-1 rubber is "Fast" with an "Arc"! It is the ingenious creation from Nittaku combining a “tension spin” top sheet with a “soft strong sponge”. It takes the best attributes from earlier Fastarc rubbers: G-1 and S-1 and utilizes them to make the new Fastarc C-1. This combination creates an incredible grip and speed to allow players to create artistic shots.

Reviews of Nittaku Fastarc C-1 (10)
Wow, never have i played with such accuracy! The spin here is totally wrong. This is made after G1 but is a softer rubber with enourmus spin. Long contact, almost sticky. I saw it was the third most sold rubber in Asia. And that means pretty much the world. Fastarc G1 still in top with Roozena and 05, then CI. Here is the list over most sold rubber in Asia Top Ten: https://world-tt.com/ps_goods/goods_ranking.php 3 Yasaka and 3 Nittaku among top ten! Butterfly, are we a little bit too expensive maybe??? (:-
This sponge is firm. The topsheet is medium only for a couple of days then it becomes firmer. The topsheet has medium spin. Speed is slow like a sriver. I do not recommend.
Lassabb mint a fastarc g 1 hasonl tulajdonsgokkal kicsit katapultossabb
Slower than fastarc g 1 with a bit more catapult with similar properties
This superb rubber is totally underrated here! If you speak German go to Marcel's German tt-spin blog and read his review. He compares it to EL-S and Vega Japan in terms of spin arc. While EL-S seems to be more aggressive, C-1 seems to give quite a bit of stability. From my point of view, you can achieve better angles with C-1 than with, say EL-P. Usually, I play Evolution EL-P, Vega Japan or FX-S on my forehand. While EL-P is too hard for me in certain situations and FX-S is too soft or not powerful enough, Fastarc C-1 is like a good blend between these two and plays like a Japanese rubber. I also think it behaves in a very linear way and placement is better than with other high tech rubbers. You always feel like you are in control of your shots and your shots can also be as vicious as with other powerful rubbers. Am using Tenergy 25FX on my backhand and have tried C-1 in backhand opening loops, too, which also works greatly. However, 25FX will stay on my backhand, because C-1 is a little too aggressive for the job. Highly recommended!
It is very versatile rubber with soft feeling. Great speed and great spin. Moreover it has good range of gear, it mean you are able make a drop shot with ease and when you hit hard it can generate enormous speed and spin. For me it a lil bit too soft may be a harder one will be better cuz sometime it bottom out too fast.
If compare to T64, this one is a lil bit harder (but still a lot softer than 05) better gear, and thanks to sligtly tacky surface it grip the ball very well either mechanic or tackiness. Despite it has slightly tackiness topsheet, this one do not that sentitive to spin, let say around Mark V level.
When I first used this it was quite fast. I bought it with the S-1. The S-1 is still very fast where as this has just completely lost its speed. It is now pretty much a stock Sriver/Sriver FX. I think this is the same as Tenergy 80. the mediocre failure between the two greats (T05 & T64 : G-1 & S-1). Don't bother with this -> Just stick to G-1 for forehand & S-1 for backhand if you need something faster.
Best forehand rubber... Good consistency in Smash, Loop, Drive, Block, n' Push... Use on Medium Hard Blade...
Great allround rubber. Slightly faster than non-tensor rubber like sriver, not too fast. Great for close to the table and mid distant. Can loop, drive, hit, push, block and flick. Not too sensitive to incoming spin. Serve is average but good enough. This will be a good choice for those wanting to try tensor rubber but afraid it is too fast for them to handle. If you can play with sriver, you can play with this rubber and you will have more speed.
Review is based on 2.0mm red. Quite nice rubber, made in German, Japanese brand. Can be used for forehand and backhand.
Good for brushing and straight hitting. Can generate decent top spin, flat shots, good push to name a few. It is decently fast which means you need good hitting techniques and good blade combination to produce faster shots.
Great rubber for players who want to develop their techniques.
Combines well with the G-1 as forehand.
Downside is the edge is quite brittle, so parts will come off easily. But this is quite normal with tensor rubber.
