This rubber sheet results from the early development of regular Mark V. The top sheet is identical to the traditional and proven Mark V but with the combination of soft sponge it reacts softer and more elastic. An excellent choice for the speed glue user !
Yasaka rubbers are steeped in history dating back all the way to 1926. The flagship rubber for Yasaka has been the Mark V. Mark V burst onto the table tennis world stage in the 1970 and 1971 World Championships taking home victory in both competitions. The Mark V is still going strong today and other versions of the rubber have been produced through the following decades.
More recently Yasaka has developed Rakza rubbers which have taken innovation to another level. The shape of the pimples provides a strong balance between spin and speed. Rakza rubbers use Hybrid Energy to provide synergy between top sheet and sponge providing great elasticity for power and control.
Yasaka has many more rubbers in their product line as well. Yasaka rubbers are used by top professionals as well as players of all levels. Be like 2019 World Championship Silver Medalist Matias Falck and choose Yasaka rubbers.

I played a few months with it on a stiga all around classic, after a vari spin. It was both sides, in 1.8mm. It a way it's a good rubbers but i wasn't fully convinced. I didn't felt a great control with it, or maybe more a great feeling. I think this rubbers won't be a mistake to play with but now i think it's more interesting to play with something more modern, any entry level tensor rubber. Just a precision, i tend to think that slower rubber is better than too fast
For players seeking a safe easy to play backhand rubber this is a great choice. Long lasting topsheet with nice grip and spin. Speed is not bad for being a classic rubber. Choose max thickness unless you are a beginner. Medium throw, long dwell that blocks great and creates a controlled backhand loop. A great do all classic rubber. A tic slower than regular Mark V that produces a bit more spin due to the softer sponge. This rubber plays with you and doesn't have a mind of it's own like many tensors.
I heard so much about the legendary Mark V from everybody in my club so I had to try it, also, after switching from remade bats, I found the jump up to the Tenergy rubbers was just too much too fast for me, I couldn't control that bounciness, but I've gone back to Tenergy 05, reason is the Mark V just has less of everything that an attacking player needs, less spin, way less speed, and to be honest my premade Stiga Procarbon rubber was also faster, of course I'll keep it because it's so easy to control I realize it's good for learning a new stroke, you just can't be too far away from the table or your shoulder will hurt later, last night I leaned both rubbers with water and I noticed the sponge was sticking to the Tenergy but not the Mark V, the effect is pretty much the same with the ball too, to each his own I guess but I honestly cannot call this a high spin rubber after comparing it to a Stiga premade rubber and Tenergy 05, actually, when my kilerspin Nitrx 4Z was new it had more spin also, as with all rubbers, you have to find what matches your style, I suggest this for a slow player who stays close to the table and uses placement over winning shots, good luck to all on your quest, may the dream live on!
Very nice control and very accurate. Use it as 1.8 on the forehand for controlled offensive play (as allrounder). Probably not fast or spinny enough for more offensive players
very balanced offensive/allround rubber with slightly soft sponge, sufficient speed and spin, light-weight, good consistency
use it for BH 1.8 offensive/allround play
good compromise for someone with technique still to improve like me
maybe control not quite as good as
for straight offensive game probably not fast/spinny enough
