This is an ideal step-up from beginner level all-round rubbers like Mark V, in my opinion.
It's awesome when paired up in 2.0 mm thickness with Off- blade like Yasaka Sweden Extra. The weight of the racket is balanced, the power/spin ratio is also balanced.
Looping, top-spin, counter-hit, block, cut, push, opening under-spin can all be done effectively, if you are practising regularly.
Chopping is the only difficult thing to do, maybe with a defensive blade, it could be turn out to be easy, I don't know.
Then, I have paired it with Yasaka Goiabao 5 blade. It is an ideal mix of looping and hitting style, as the blade's hard outer layer and inner medium density core and slight flex all perfectly complement each other in the short game as well as long. It's a joy to hold and play.
Club/amateur/intermediate players could benefit immensely with this rubber paired with an Off-/All+ blade.
The HPS version of Mark V is Awesome! Topsheet has more grip compared to regular Mark V, and sponge is more dynamic, without any bouncy feeling though. I am not sure about that but this is a non-tensor rubber. Hardness is medium-hard for sponge but the topsheet is highly elastic and provides a softer global feeling.
A very well balanced rubber : pretty good speed, excellent spin, tremendous feeling and control. Defensive strokes (chops) are very efficient and pleasant to do. Even in 2018, even with the plastic ball, Mark V HPS can fit most of the players in search of controlled but powerfull playstyle.
A very good rubber with good control and rotation I recommend it for intermediate players
Very good rubber, nice spin and speed, also provides a good control. Works very well in FH, but I think it is perfect for BH. Paired with a Xiom Extreme S blade and a Xiom Omega Europe in FH, nothing to complain. The HPS version is better than the other versions, worths the price.
I am a Short and Mid ranged OFF+ player, and I play in spin rather than flat shots.... And This Rubber is the Best for me so far for my FH...
Before this, I was using Donic Coppa Gold. But Mark V HPS has more spin and control. And if you have blade like Donic Senso carbon, which is enough fast, you can also generate lots of speed in your topspin.
My services are having mroe spin now. And I can put my topspins anywhere I want....
Mark V HPS is a Must Try Rubber for players with style like me........
Bought a sheet of 2.0mm red. So far this is my favorite rubber. It's fast with very good control and is very forgiving, great feel, medium soft suitable for any blade. You can use either for forehand or backhand. Currently I use it on BH and use Nitakku Fastarc S1 for FH.
My review: Very light, cut weight=42g. Speed=9.2. spin=9. control=9.5 forgiving, grip=9. throw=med. hardness=4. feel=excellent, overall=9.5
As a big fan of Yasaka I want to try a faster rubber combined with a faster blade YASAKA GOIBAIO 5. I have this racket with rakza 9 on forehand and mark v hps on the backhand and I am very satisfied. I have this racket for the last 10 days and even is very early to tell yet this is some observations. Racket was a lot faster than my previous and the first 2-3 days I was struggling not to keep the ball as I was able to do it but I wasn't able to hold the blade as this time from straight I went to anatomic bell type. After the 4-5 day I was able to get used to hold it but also to play better. It would take me a few days or weeks to get used to it but I believe with this blade and with this rubbers I ll be able also to move forward faster. As for the rubbers very fast and very strong hit and for the spin you ll have to be a little technical if you want to succeed with a lot of speed.
Very good balanced rubber. Great speed, explosive, with good spin and great control, also blocking very well. You can do everything with it. Works better with medium/hard blades.
This rubber is very sensitive to dust since dust causes it to loose it's spin rapidly. If you wash the rubber with soap and water ( remember to wash out all the soap) the grip will return. I need to wash the rubber after every 2 sets. When the rubber is clean you can do everything with it, providing you have the skill. The rubber feels light.
