Nittaku Fastarc S1 is by far the best FH rubber that I have tried for Yinhe T11+ blade. Topspins and mid distance looping are great. Flat hits are powerful, services are good, short & spinny (except for Hurricane Neo3 which was great for service). The best part is I can open any ball with forehand including heavily underspin balls...
Time for me to come home, to my s1. Tried just about every rubber and blade you can imagine as a coach. So many combinations of different players bats. Finally my time searching again and again for that ( it rubber), you know the one you have read about and it will kill your opponent, don't believe all that rubbish anymore.All this equipment rubbish is not going to make you the super player you want to be. This is a beautiful well rounded and controlled rubber that i keep going back to. The lightness is the part that all you players out their will love,it allows you to hit through the ball with much better speed thus creating all the spin you will ever need, please listen here to coach and don't be fooled again by high end pricey rubbers, get over them rubbers guys and get yourselfs some S1
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
