729-08 rubber has three different sponge hardness-45, 47, and 49. I use 47 degrees hardness on a Carbonado 90 as FH rubber. The rubber surface is very tacky with amazing spin potential and great control. I can easily impart strong spins on serves and during short game with small wrist motions. The tacky topsheet also makes it very easily to keep returns close to the net on short game. The topsheet is not as hard as those of typical tacky Chinese rubbers. for example, it feels softer than the topsheet of Hurricane 3. On loops and drives, this rubber has great speed and topspin potential. During matches, my opponents have a lot of trouble blocking my FH loops and counter-loops. If you are an offensive player who likes to loop and drive a lot, this rubber is for you. IMO, 729-08 is as good as H3, and it's cheaper than H3.

729-08 is really nice chinese rubber with hard sponge. I tested it on Stiga Allround Classic WRB on FH side. This is definitely looping rubber. Spin is huge if you use your body while looping (chinese technique). I prefer 729-08 and 999T over DHS Hurricane 3. Overall, I definitely recommend this rubber for aggressive looper. NOTE: 729-08 like any others hard sponge chinese rubbers works well with flexible blades (like Stiga All Round Classic WRB, Donic Waldner Senso Carbon, Nuttaku Violin or any other blade which thickness doesn\'t exceed 5.6mm. The general rule is that the stiffer the blade the less spin it make when pared with hard sponge rubber. If you pared 792-08 with 5.0mm blade the spin is going to be enormous. The example of such blade is Nexy Calix which is exactly 5.0mm ) As I mention above, flexible blade is the missing ingredient to love 729-08 or any tacky chinese rubber with hard sponge. Do not pare it with stiff blade, you will hate it because there won\'t be much of spin and it will feel dead and uncontrollable. For stiff blade lusers, use medium to soft sponge rubber to be happy.

This is my third 729 rubber ,i wonder why DHS is so famous than 729 because i personally feel 729 makes better rubbers than DHS.This rubber is great with hard sponge 9/10 extreme tacky around 9 and needs good shoulders and u need to pair it with a flexible blade.I tested this on yasaka ma lin soft carbon with battle 1 on the back hand.Great rubber for forehand loop and counterspin and rallies.During the rallies i was able to keep 9/10 balls on the table all the time.It has tremendous spin for flicking and looping side spins.If u get ur act together and play it properly with great body movement ur opponent will be in great trouble all the time due to the enormous spin he is going to face.It weighs about 43 gm cut black and works exceptionally great on my extra lacquered blade felt great for blocking as it took away all the speed and was able to place the balls adequately.Throw angle with perfect action is around 6.5 but due to the hard rubber it appears it is low around 5.5 but if u hit harder it will go up.Also if the rubber can be boosted will play great.I did not boost as i am not interested in the mess i use medium to high viscosity revolution glue which acts as a tensor on the blade so it has some boosting action by itself just apply 2 coats on the blade and on the rubber.U will feel the difference while playing.Close to net u have to exert a little more force to get the ball across the net.But this is a great rubber i had to test this as i plan to use this on forehand as i was informed that battle 2 rubber will be stopped as per one online seller.So i am looking at other 729 rubbers as alternative.

I agree with the AndySmith review.
This rubber has hard sponge, it is not lightweight, and has no crazy speed.
But the spin is insane, and even if the sponge is hard, you can feel it.
I would say that also the control is not that easy, you need some time to get used to this rubber. It is not forgiven, so it requires a good technique.
But if your stroke is consitent and well executed, it produce a great amount of spin, very dangerous for the opponent. For speed you have to push quite a bit.
Also the sound is huge.
To me, it worth the money. Probably one of the best 729 rubber.

I got two of these rubbers. The red one works fine, but the black one is complete disaster. It's pretty hard and doesn't bounce balls much. The plastic on the rubber doesn't come off the rubber. I just ordered another one.

The best 729 I've used. It's got a lot of tack, but it has a softer sponge than most chinese rubbers I've used so you can get a little more dwell time for loops. More control than I expected, but still not great in this regard. It's great for blocking, loop-drives and service and can even get the occasional chop. If you're looking for a cheap, high-quality, tacky rubber, this is the rubber for you.

i use this rubber on the FH side of my YEO. it is very spinny on loops and serving, controlable on short game but is heavy and it is slow without glue or tuning. glued it is a monster!

This is a very had rubber that needs breaking into before it performs to its ability. But as all 729 rubbers the durability of it is extensive. Need to be sure that you are going for a shot though, or else the ball is going to just drop off. So committment is the word with this rubber.

I find this good for backhand and hard to control slow spinny loops...

Overall a good rubber.

had this on the forehand of a donic defplay classic senso blade... great for classic fast attack and can generate some speed away from the table however the hard sponge and very tacky top sheet do not agree with passive shots...you swing big or go home...also not good for chopping on the forehand side, not forgiveing enough. in conclusion, great for fast attack and occasional loos from far away.

Pretty much what everyone else said. Found the sponge to be a bit hard. Other than that, it was good overall. Fast, and spinny in most aspects of the game, good for looping, but I think the loop would be better if the sponge wasn't quite as hard. 8.3 overall, good value, like all the other 729 rubbers.

Tacky chinese rubber that is quiet heavy with a medium/hard sponge. The quality seems good and the price ($ 14) is also great. Must try if you'r into chinese rubbers on your FH. Hard to use at the beginning, but once you break it in, its spinny and controllable.

My sheet didn't seem fast, and wasn't very tacky either, seemed only lightly tacky. Even my Cream MRS was clearly tackier.

It had a low throw and a hard sponge, not suited for me.

My favorite 729 so far. More pace than previous types, but more tack than 729-5. Hard sponge but still has a nice feel, so thicker sponges are very usable. I'd say it was just slightly faster than 729-5, but with noticably more spin from the increased tackiness.

So, you get good grip on serves, great spin on loops, quick enough to play from mid-distance, but enough control to play an aggressive push/chop game and blocks are still relatively easy.

Not a glue-effect rubber, so don't expect tenergy levels of pace. But in my opinion easily the best form of 729 so far for aggressive spin attackers. And still pretty cheap!
