Out of curiosity, I wanted to pair my perfect Nittaku Violin blade with something of the same branch and decided to change from T05fx to Nittaku S-1 1.8mm both sides. So this is a direct comparison to 05fx. Some people were mentioning here that it is not fast enough - not true. Definitely faster than 05fx. Mates who were used to blocking my slower but spinny topspins found themselves struggling with faster pace. Rubber is feather light, definitely plus. The biggest downside for me is noticable reduction of spin. Aggresive topspins just a slight difference but opening loops absolutely lacked spin. The ball does not soak into the sponge, shoots away relatively quickly and if you are player relying on variation and putting all sorts of sidespin and topspin on your over-the-table balls, the rubber is not for you. Long pushes are fast and nasty, very difficult for opponents without perfect movement but it is almost impossible to push short and along with bad over the table game, I will be removing it from my backhand after a few weeks of playing. Blocks are easy, service receive not affected by opponents spin at all, rather forgiving rubber but in the end, not for me.
9.5/10 for OFF style. FH: Donic Bluefire M1 Turbo, 2.2mm, 52g (0.256g/cm^2), 50 degrees (ESN), 38.5 degrees (Shore A). BH: Donic Acuda S1, 2mm, 48g (0.235g/cm^2), 47.5 degrees (ESN), 37.5 degrees (Shore A). Blade: TSP Balsa 8.5, 80g, 157mm x 150mm x 10.5mm (Width x Height x Thickness). Plies: 5 (3 Wood + 2 Composite): Ayous - GlassFibre - Balsa - GlassFibre - Ayous.
I love it ! Fast (not the fastest), easy to control and decently spinny. Used in FH Yasaka Goiabao 5, can return any serve consistently, not affected by spin at all. Hitting away from the table is consistent and powerful. Solid for Flat hit, can smack any ball right back
12/29/2017:Amazing rubber,I have it on Timo Boll ALC.Super speed and control.Spin is good too.Very good for serve recieves.I hav the black on BH side,on the FH I have tenergy 05.....I think I dont know how to use Tenergy 05...cos I feel fastarc S1=way better in all aspects.
I had trouble getting a rubber with hardness and medium speed, high twow that will replace my andro rasant in FH (this out of production) try with thibhar elp too fast, very direct, thibar els very fast and heavy, t05 fx very fast, without control, difficult blocking, probe fast arc s1 and I am impressed, everything is good, blocking, topspin, insensitive to spin, WOW, it will be my rubber for many years, I hope it does not stop producing.Update, seems delicate but it is quite the opposite, very resistant and durable, polyvalent rubber works well in FH and BH, quite fast, impresses the durability, insensitive to spin, medium angle.
