Reviews of Yasaka Extra Offensive 7 Power (11)
FH: Rakza 7 max
BH: Rakza 7 Soft max
I'm a penhold player who recently evolved from an single-sided-rubber tpb cpen setup to the modern penhold style with a serviceable rpb.
The thinness of the blade made it easier to rpb even with max sponges. Initially, the blade felt a touch fast but it's predictable and it didn't take long to get used to the speed. The short game and blocks are clean, and while brush looping is deadly, it requires precise engagement.
To further optimize for rpb, I chose Rakza 7 rubbers for their relatively light weight. Furthermore, R7s's soft sponge matches well with my backhand arm speed and generates a decent amount of spin.
I will say that I switched from this blade to the Yasaka Silver All Wood because this blade was a bit too fast for me. Although it was very powerful and hard for the opponent to block, I lost a lot of points because the harder shots (half-long loops, looping out of position) went out of the table due to the speed of this blade. Additionally, blocking is much harder -- I kept flinching during each block because the blade is so fast and it's not that forgiving. So overall, the greatest strengths of this blade (hard and fast) are also its greatest weaknesses. If you can control it (probably above USATT 2000), then the speed/power, large sweet spot, precise feeling, and great value are worth the sacrifices in control. Otherwise, I'd recommend a slower blade.
