Reviews of Nittaku Fastarc G-1 (44)

Normally I buy no longer rubbers, that have a sponge hardness of 47.5 degrees, because after trying a few in the past, all of them were too hard and "challenging to play" for me, however a report, about the Nittaku G-1, made me curious again.
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 !!!

The topsheet on the Fastarc G-1 is pretty darn stiff which means it does somethings well and some things poorly.

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.

I use G1 on FH on a Nittaku Latika. There is good synergy between top sheet and sponge , giving excellent balance between spin, speed and control. The rubber can really bite into the ball to produce wicked topspin, causing opponent to completely miss the ball. Near or away from the table, the rubber performance is steady, reliable and consistent. The feel and feedback on impact is natural and comfortable. Serves, pushes, flicks, blocks, smashes, lifting backspin, topspin rallies, this rubber handles everything competently! It delivers what I put in and expect. And if the shot fails, it is not the the fault of G1! Relative to other tensors, it is fairly priced in my country. It is also durable. A real gem!

This success of a rubber is well worth getting familiar with. Because of having a good grip of the ball I prefer it on backhand but its a fast rubber so you have to take care to follow-through your stroke and when u do the ball kind of dives at the end of the arc and close to the boarders of the table it can often surprise your opponent that the ball came in but most importantly it makes you having to really hit good clean relaxed strokes and when u do your ball will be fast, very spinny and hard to handle. I think this rubber helps u get a better technique because of the above so eventhough its almost too fast for me on the bh I have held on to this and my backhand has kept improving. Also a rubber great for spinny serves.

Best rubber i've tried so far, low catapult which makes this rubber very linear, predictable and easy to control, yet still have a very decent speed. Which for me, is a big improvement over MX-S. MX-S and G1 are very similar to almost identical, But G1 is more lively with better speed, not as tiring to use as MX-S. Spin is almost the same, can't notice much difference.

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
