Reviews of RITC 729 GeoSpin Tacky (29)
Very slow rubber, and I mean REALLY slow. Especially with poly ball.
So what purpose does it still have in modern tt? Well, it actually works very well as a chopping rubber!
I have made the heaviest chops ever with this thing. Looping is okay, but needs a LOT of effort. However if your chop gets pushed back and you attack that backspin with a loopdrive, it works quite well. Somewhat similar to the Victas VS>401, but not as versatile maybe, as its offensive capabilities aren't as good. But chops really are LOADED!
First of all, this rubber (red, 2.0mm) has not got loads of speed. It has lots of spin, forehand loops are very easy to get on the table, chops are very spinny and are very floaty.
Spin on service is great, short pushes are very easy.
I have had this rubber about a year, and apart from the topsheet losing its tackiness after a few months, it still plays well with good spin.
It has been banged on the table several times and only has one very small chip on the edge.
Enjoy your TT!
Good spin, control, and dwell time on this rubber. Great for learning. All the noobs at work like this rubber paired with an ALL blade.
Rubber is not very fast. You have to put some velocity on your swing to get the ball moving with this rubber.
If your game is playing corners, changing tempo, and putting variations on spin, then this is the rubber for you.
I tried at 2.2 mm, and this rubber is a disaster.
I think I got botched rubber,
No tackiness, super low throw, damp feel,
But then, I change the sponge to Kokutaku Blutenkirsche Japan 1.5 mm, using boiled water method, and, voila
Spinny, slow, but very high throw, which I like. :)
i use the red 1,5mm n stick it with SG as my BH chopping rubber on my Xiom Aigis, an oversized head def blade..
it chops very well, very spinny..
speed is enough for me to chop the ball away from the table..
the control is good, very good indeed.. i can put the ball where i wanted..
i have tried this rubber on LKT Transformer XC, the spin on serves is better than when i use it on aigis, maybe because the head heavy effect on the aigis.. IMO.. thats it, good ruber for all level player.. chopchop!!

FH: TG2 NEO 2.2mm (red)/
BH: 729 GeoSpin Tacky 1.5mm (black).
I used GeoSpin Tacky as my BH rubber. It is very good choice for loop oriented game. I was able to produce with this rubber extra heavy BH loops, pushes and chops that many of my opponents had trouble to deal with. The spin of this rubber is the same as TG2 Neo has, but the sponge is slightly softer and lighter. I bought 6 sheets of this rubber a while ago and noticed difference in sponge and top sheet hardness, as a result the performance, longevity and control was slightly different. I overall ended up being very satisfied with this rubber, despite some minor differences from sheet to sheet. Since the 729 company doesn't make this rubber any longer, I shifted to 729 Super FX (blue sponge) as my main choice for BH rubber. It has the same spin and tackiness but slightly harder sponge, and it's a bit faster. All you need is 5-6 hours of training to readjust. Remember to use adhesive protective plastic cover to preserve the tackiness of Chinese rubber.
This is too slow rubber for me nowadays. Earlier it worked pretty well in fast blades like Galaxy T11.
I expected this rubber to be very tacky based on other people's reviews. It is not as tacky as people say it is, and this is the black sheet I'm referring to. It can pick up a ball for about a second before dropping it. DHS Hurricane 2 and 3 are both tackier than this. It is a nice alternative to the hurricane series though as it is lighter and cheaper. Spin is good, throw is a bit high.
The GeoSpin Tacky is so highly developed, it is able to stand out to its magnificent spin and control. Although it does not aim high on speed (for me), it is an easy to use rubber, most specially for loopers, and for offensive players. The GeoSpin Tacky, though, does not match with all great blades. I recommend to use it on Stiga and Friendship 729 blades, unless one know's how to tap its potential.
you'll make spinny ball with a little effort. but, it's really sensitive on oncoming spin
Very nice rubber for spin based play. If you want to top spin easily you have to take at least 2 mm and apply a booster. If you have a large spin move, you don't need booster. Throw angle is low so it needs to accommodate. Serves returns restitute a lot of spin and I think it's hard to play against pips out with this rubber because the ball often finishes in the net.
This rubber is great. I wanted spin for driving & looping more than anything and this rubber delivers. It's the best I've played with.
At first some reviews talking about lack of speed concerned me but rest assure you'll be fine. When you smash, you'll get enough speed to put away points.
As I hit with this rubber I'll notice how good the spin is. It feels great. But not once while playing did I notice any lack of speed. It's a complete non-issue IMO.
My favorite rubber and great price.
Great rubber if you want something good for spiny serves and pushes with better abilities for loops than classic 729FX, thanks to the softer topsheet and sponge.
Not once in my short table tennis career have I played with a rubber that has so much much spin on the ball. I absolutely love this rubber! My style of play supports all-around offense, with precise placement. I love this rubber for its ability to create spin, not for its speed. I require spin to control nearly all of my shots. I like this rubber in its lowest thickness (1.5mm) for the added control on pushes and chops. It is fantastic for serving, and I am able to hit brush loop strokes with extreme spin fairly well, and chop with very heavy backspin.
This rubber is great! The ball really digs in to the sponge and gets amazing spin. the sponge is definetly of the softer sid but the top sheet it hard so you dont lose speed. you can get some fast balls with this rubber. you dont have to worry about it being too slow lets just say that, i use this for FH with black, never tried red tho. once you get use to it it is a great rubber, especially for strong loops and spinny serves. chopping takes a little getting use to but its good for it once you figure it out. if you like looping with good control get this rubber!!
I love this rubber very much and had been using it for more than a year now.
Black holds it sticky more than the red.
Great forplaying against strong loop, you can chop it back every time even in 2.2mm thickness.
Lacks in speed but makes up for that in spin and control.
One of my favorites in the 729 range.
I use this rubber for low level intermediate play, and I can deliver very nice and very spinny serves with it. I have a little more trouble generating topspin with it, but I don't think anyone buys this for offensive looping. Either way, it doesn't really do anything poorly...
Its great if you want to augment your serve by generating more spin.
You cannot beat the 729 prices. Very cheap compared to other brands, and you get a great product. Really, its the best value brand out there.
The rubber itself is suitable for all players, although beginner players who can not generate much spin may be better off with a different rubber.
I bought this rubber and expected so much more out of it. Especially out of the "power sponge!!" Spin is excellent, but speed is another story. I like to loop drive and smash when able, but found both being returned to continue the rally from players who normally miss these shots from me. I think this rubber is more for players who enjoy controlled looping at close distance and spinny service. For someone looking to loop drive with a similar type rubber, try the 729 Transcend which is much faster and just as spinny.
