Reviews of Nittaku Fastarc G-1 (11)
I started using G1 with nittaku acoustic blade. My play has improved a lot. My backspins were very effective. The main feature was the topspin. I was counting the numbers when my opponents thought the ball was coming out .
Then I made a sharp decision to switch to zj.alc and t05. The remote game was great, but I started making too many mistakes in the short game and service. I couldn't turn the backspin into a stable like g1. Now I've turned fastarc g1 again on zj.alc and everything is fine again. More dynamic than acoustic g1 setup. The best forehand rubber for me is the Nittacu Fastarc G1.
Use for both FH and BH. Great spin, speed and control when needed. Has about 80-85% speed of Tenergy series, but loads more control and more all round capabilities such as easier smashing, countering hard topspins and opening up is a little easier with serving options. Blocking is easier and more controlled and relatively low throw when blocking but medium when looping or driving. Great all round offensive rubber that has not huge flaws and I always come back to this rubber after trying others because it lasts longer, has great deals o. TT11 and keeps on spinning even after 5-6 months. Love this rubber and would recommend to anyone that is a intermediate to professional off the bat.
Fore me one of the best universal rubbers . Not for beginner's, only players with well fitting stroke and position game can use whole potential and control it. Rubber is more forgiving than my other favourits. Is working well on many blades. Guess cause of low throw G-1 works better on hard blades and blades with bigger catapult (Hinoki)- I can use it on both sides. I mostly prefer on FH cause of powerful topspin's. Use it on Donic Persson Powerplay an Joola Aruna OFF
Very good FH rubber , best as I ever tried. Thickness - super thick (2,0). Played on Donic Ovtcharov True Carbon blade 86 gramm. Smaller catapult , good speed and very good spin. Direct feel , plenty of control by every stroke.
Comming from Baracuda , G1 has better speed , control and block-counter-smash game .Spin is similar. I was surprissed - with this rubber is possible to do different "touch" strokes and direct attack through opponents topspin. With this rubber open me new possibilities in many areas of my game. My new lethal weapon. Highly recommended.
This rubber suitable on 7 plies all wood blade, such as stiga legend 7 or Darker alba.
If put on carbon blade, will be hard to control.
I bought this because of the good reviews and tried it on Nittaku Ludeak for 3 months. I got really disappointed because of low spin. It is very durable and consistent with good control but spin is way lower than Razka 7 and, Baracuda and Acuda P2. The first day I tried it all of my practice partnrs noticed my serves and pushed do not have usual spin. the spin is overrated.
Ratings for 2.0mm. Not as fast as tenergy. Has good grip and spin. Easy to play with and the price is decent.
Very good rubber I used on both sides of the black for much better backhand, red for proper forehead but for me much better Gewo nexxus el pro 50
I've been playing with the Fastarc G-1 for about a month now. I've always used tacky chinese rubbers on my forehand so this was a big change. Please keep in mind that a lot of my opinions on this rubber are made in comparison to the Hurricane 3 Neo (H3N)
I don't think that this rubber generates as much spin. I notice the spin difference especially in my serves. I am not able to get my opponents to make as many errors on serve returns as they used to with tacky rubbers. The difference in spin on loops, however, is small. The rubber also feels slightly slower than the H3N.
That said, I feel the difference is more than made up by the amount of control the rubber offers. The majority of my strokes now land on the table and even when I am out of position and have to lunge/stretch to get to the ball, they still end up on the table. I think this rubber is teaching me to play better and hit the ball harder. I do feel the ball a LOT more and can tell exactly which part of the bat I hit the ball with and thus allows me to make minor modifications to find that sweet spot and play better strokes.
With the H3N, when I tried to gently guide the ball, the margin for error was so small that I'd often get those strokes wrong/or be of poor quality. The G-1 just seems to bite into the ball every time and it's so easy to control and direct the ball despite the incoming spin. The rubber isn't very heavy either so it'll help you to get around and play your strokes in quick succession.
In short, the rubber isn't the fastest but it's fast enough. It isn't the spinniest but it's really good. The control is out of this world and if you are a half decent player, this will give you the margin you need to really build your confidence and play the strokes properly. I wasn't sure about non-tacky rubbers but this one has really impressed me and I'd definitely recommend it.
