Reviews of Nittaku Fastarc G-1 (44)
My black G-1 weighed, in the original packaging, with 1.8 mm 114 g, uncut 64 g and on my blade, with 150 x 156 mm, 45 g.
After I had the same experience with it, on my favorite blade (SZLC), as I had with other rubbers of this hardness level in the past, I tried other blades. (Solid wood, carbon and ALC as well as white carbon, which is probably in truth just fever glass in aluminum style!)
In the end, I found (only) one playing partner for this rubber that really convinced me. - a LEMURIA CNF "White Carbon" blade (Butterfly Revoldia clone !!!) from the Hi Sport Store on ALI Express !!!!
This extraordinary blade, stiff and medium-hard (- strangely enough, however, makes all rubbers appear hard !!!), made the G-1 manageable.
- Before I was able to use or understand the known strengths and advantages of rubber on any other blade.
Conclusion: Even if I will eventually put this rubber away because I'm not good enough for it, the tests were still a good thing.
Once again I was able to experience how a wood can harmonize with a rubber. (- ... or not !!!: - /) The greatest strength of the rubber is, as with the T 05, the "angular play".
So if you don't want to spend 60 on a Tenergy 05 (and a comparable rubber) or are looking for an upgrade for your Xiom Vega Pro or Vega X, you should buy this G-1 (- almost at the same price as the XIOMs) definitely try it.
Finally: ... here is another, more professional opinion on the Nittaku G-1 !!! https://www.tt-spin.de/nittaku-fastarc-g-1/
Brush looping and flicking ends up feeling very strange and ineffective on this rubber. Maybe if I had 2000+ rating strokes, it would behavior like other rubbers, but I couldn't do it with much success. In contrast, because the topsheet is thick and stiff, flat hitting and blocking were great because of the spin insensitivity. When I do execute a full power loop, Fastarc G-1 does produce a faster and higher quality shot than other tensor rubbers such as Rakza 7. However, the lack of versatility makes this rubber not as good in my eyes.
My advice, don't buy this if you're under 2000 like I am, it requires a fast stroke to really breakthru the topsheet and engage the sponge.
Weight: 1.8 sponge Uncut: 65 grams, Cut (157/150 blade): 46 grams.
Felt like Dignics05 has a slightly better spin, however, they are completely different rubber. G1 still have a better control imo due to the lower catapult, not very spin sensitive and is easier to execute short push. Not to mention much better price point which make this my go to rubber
