Used on BH with Stiga All Classic for 1 month:
Medium sponge hardness with rather compact, yet responsive tacky topsheet results in a (for me) great BH rubber. Easy on short game, good Control when blocking, can create massive spin when Looping. I recommend it a lot if you want to improve your BH strokes.

Friendship/729 Higher is very nice BH rubber. Sponge hardness is H42 degrees chinese scale. This rubber is extremely spiny and has excellent control in all types of shots. Keep this in mind, it is very good ALL round rubber that can be used by both offensive and defensive players. It lasts a very long time comparing to Butterfly Tenergy rubber. Usually, Tenergy 05 dies after 40-50 hours of intensive use on my BH, but 729 Higher lasts around 250 hours. If you consider performance, spin, control, durability and price Friendship/729 Higher is obsolete a winner for me. I highly recommend this rubber to competitive player!

 External Review for RITC 729 Higher Tension 1 Transcend Sponge on January 14, 2017
I think this is a good training rubber, but I like the general sponge much better for training or beginner. The one arguement in favor of higher I can see is. if you plan to end up using springy sponge later on, this sponge has a little more spring in it (If that helps anything). But, it "binds up" your stroke more if you are trying to learn a stroke in my opinion.
For a tournament winning sponge as a beginner, maybe this would be good also, but I wonder if it is too low performance with too little control for that. To me, it is not enough more than general sponge in performance to merit using it. If you want more performance a bigger step than this rubber might be better.

Its a good rubber, produces ton of spin, has great control, its just slow. You COULD play off the table but you have to put some real "umph" into it.I glued it to a joola rosskopf smash(as an experiment), and the rubber is very heavy, it felt nice, but it was top heavy, so i added some sand into the handle, really balanced out the weight. I would recommend this rubber if you are learning the game, or maybe if you have a fast blade to go with this.

This was my first BH rubber several years ago based on reviews from this site. I felt it had a bit more spin than 729 cream transcend on my fh.

This is the best 729 rubber that I have used. At first, I was disappointed as it was so tacky when new. Actually, you can pick the ball from the floor by using the rubber's tackiness. Then after playing with it for a few days, the tackiness decreased but enough to create an exceptional spin. I glued it on my T11 blade which was a very good combination to generate speed & ball control. After that, my top spins, loops, chops, serves & ball placements drastically improved. It help me gain my confidence back during match plays.

A bit unusual rubber.
Tried it on two blades (slow and fast) and there is problem with consistency. From time to time ball will fly the way it shouldn't. One sheet became totally useless really fast, another sheet still holds.
Not fast, but spinny, good for slow high arc topspin loops.

 External Review for RITC 729 Higher Tension 1 Transcend Sponge on April 28, 2012
EDIT:after one month playing with this rubber...Im gonna replace it.I tried so much to learn to play with this but its difficult for me.At the first place, I didnt beat a friend even one time since im playing with Higher and before i put it on fourhand we were prety close players.Now,Im lossing from him a lot.
Rubber is strange.It has medium low throw angle.Block with this ruber is pure.You must to hit hard and well balanced and conntroled to hit the table. Somethimes grip ball more somethimes less...I dont know....Maybe i can,t handle it, but its for sure that the rubber is tricky to play. Deffence with this (block) its waist of time.

My review is based on compared this rubber with Joola Energy Xtra and Tenergy 64,playing for about 2 hours with this rubber,at forhend on my Kong Linghui Euro blade,glued with New glue although this is rubber for speed glue.
Speed-About 30-35% less then Xtra and Tnrgy so i Rated it 7.
Spin is really good,Its little higher tnan tenergy and even more higher than Xtra.
Control is so good i think.Maybe that is becouse rubber is slower than other two,but certainly is higher anyway.
Throw angle is quite similar like Xtra,maybe 10% lower,but it's noticeably lower than Tnrgy 64.Lets say its medium.
Other things about this rubber...Its Ok for close to table playing,far away you have to hit much harder, but its quite easy to annul the opponent's spin and hit it with top spin.I like the rubber and I think I will keep playing with it becouse...The speed isn't everything i need in the game.
I think its medium-hard,medium tacky and very very durable rubber.

Como es habitual en las Friendship 729 .Muy buena relacion calidad precio ,gomas buenas ,baratas y duraderas. En este caso acerca de la 729 Superior .opino como- WHANG -Despues de haber probado infinidad de gomas .y jugado con Marck V- y particularmente con Sriver de Butterfly , mas de 20 a±os,encuentro en esta goma una de mis sustitutas ,si bien no es tan explosiva,o rapida ,pero ,en cambio va mejor para el bloqueo y para picar .sirve bien y buena para intercambio de golpes tanto de derecho como de reves ,de cerca y de media distancia.Muy buena la negra con esponja verde ,puede utilizarse tanto de derecho como de reves .la goma roja va con esponja crema ,si bien es parecida a la goma negra.yo diria que es un poco mas dura,mas apropiada para el derecho Si en la Galaxy T-11+,no me gustaron,Provada en en 2,2 mm en mi mis querida Yinhe Nº.9.- Tratada, yendo de maravilla, con cola rapida va mejor.aunque con voc va bien.es una de mis favoritas ,conjuntamente con las Reactor Corbor ,tambien muy buenas y parecidas a las Sriver. -Un poco mas lentas y pesadas,pero con mas control estan las Globe 999 y Nacional, las Ritc 729 OEM , Goma polivalente y ligera ,sobre todo la roja,,parecidas a la superior y ultimamente ,estoy probando las Mercury 2 ,que son mas rapidas( tipo Tenergi 05- XION) y las hay en varias graduaciones , no me desagradan.haber si superan a las 729 Superior.- Las 729 Superior ,superan para mi a las DHS -Hurricanes 3 mas pesadas y lentas a las H-2 y Skyilines .

 External Review for RITC 729 Higher Tension 1 Transcend Sponge on May 26, 2011
in short: this is a medium-soft, low-throw, tacky rubber with a clicking feel.

in detail:

Throw: Low (exactly like Globe999. lower than Galaxy Moon 38deg. much lower than Galaxy MercuryII 37deg. similar to H3).

Hardness: Medium-soft (much softer than H3. softer than galaxy moon 38deg. much softer than globe999 40deg. on the Galaxy scale, it would be 35degrees). Due to the low hardness, this rubbers bottoms out at medium power. At each stroke, you feel the sponge clicking. (this does not mean you hear a clicking sound.)

control: low. This rubber is very unforgiving if you hit with the wrong angle. Also, if you don't hit hard enough to make the sponge click, it is inconsistent: sometimes it grips the ball, sometimes it doesn't. Furthermore, the low throw requires a completely different technique if you are used to medium throw such as Galaxy moon, high throw such as mercuryII, or very high throw such as Xiom Vega Pro or T05. Balls going to net are frustrating.

Tacky (like H3, but the topsheet is a bit softer. Let's say like globe999)

Speed: medium-fast (like Galaxy Moon 38deg or HurricaneIII. Much faster than globe999 40deg.)

Weight: 60gr cut. (a bit more than Galaxy Moon 38deg. lighter than Globe999.)

What blade to use: I suggest a soft, fast, wooden blade, like Stiga Offensive Wood NCT, or stiga Allround Wood NCT if you need more control.

Bottom line: overall I prefer MercuryII 37deg because it has higher throw, more spin, and more control.

Note: black sheets have a green sponge, red sheets have a yellow sponge, but they play identical.
