Notes: Focus 3 snipe is an improved and lighter version of the original Focus 3. This rubber uses mechanical grip (like European style rubbers), to provide spin and speed. If you liked original Focus 3, this is a better product in every way. The speed rating given is maximum, this is a manufacturer rating and while the rubber does have some kick is not 120, but closer to 100.

Reviews of RITC 729 Focus III Snipe (99)

Great backhand rubber. Non-tacky but still generates good spin. Low weight as well to allow heavier rubber on forehand. Not very fast, but all shots are easy to excecute and can generate speed with good technique.

I got myself a sheet of this Focus III Snipe Black 2.1mm H42. The sponge is very soft in this the softest version of the rubber. Compared to a DHS TinArc 3 Black 2.0mm H35 that I used on my backhand before, it's a bit faster. Absolutely easier to topspin than the TA3. I'm still adjusting when it comes to chopping and pushing. The ball easily goes too high when pushing if you're not careful. It feels like it's more spin sensitive than the TA3. I have only used this one session as for now. 191231: Now I have used this in various hardness for half a year. It's soooo sweet. The blocking is good. Back spin serves works great, even though it's not that tacky. When doing backhand topspin, you have to do the full stroke. This is not a tensor rubber at all. Very linear, but quite springy sponge and soft top sheet. To all of you that wonder if it works for forehand. Yes of course. If you like looping in a very controlled manor, this is your rubber then. You won't get that catapult effect like the DHS Hurricane/Skyline NEO or Yinhe Big Dipper/Saturn/Apollo rubbers, but there is some great control. Use the hardness 44-46 for your forehand if you like a looping game. It's super for beginners as well. Many players in my club has switched to this from Stiga Boost TC, and like it a lot. I play about 8-10 hours a week, and I had to change my backhand sheet after four months. At last. It's very very light :) Weight cut H46: 41g. H44: 42-45g. H42: 39-44g
