Yasaka Rakza 7
Yasaka, uses mainly natural rubber for the top sheet. This improves the level of grip and the power of spin drastically. The top sheet is combined with the new Power Sponge. The top sheet and Power Sponge work in perfect synergy, producing the Hybrid Energy rubber Rakza 7. When the player hits the ball hard, the rubber grips the ball and the stroke can be used to place the ball accurately, both in direction and length. The serve and short returns are very sharp and easy to handle. Due to the increased percentage of natural gum the durability is improved. A winning combination!

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.

Reviews of Yasaka Rakza 7 (127)
The rubber has a nice and grippy top sheet with a sponge hardness of 50esn. The rubber is great on my backhand and is a very balanced rubber. The control on this rubber is absolutely INSANE! You wont believe how much control you can get unless you try it. The speed is decent but not as fast as other European rubbers. The rubber has a very high arc and when you do a short ball push, the ball will bounce right up.The spin is good but I find it very hard to master flicks. Overall great rubber for beginners or intermediate players.
It performs well in smashing and blocking. The rubber absorbs the spin and drives from your opponents well enough for your blocks to remain low most of the time. Smashes are easy cos of the medium arc the rubber projects.
Now I understand why so many people use this for their BH instead. It excels in CONTROL...albeit at the expense of spin and power. This is not strong enough for me to use as a FH rubber, but I can see how good it is as my BH rubber.
Looping is not its strength. It doesnt have enough power to cause a lot of damage cos its simply not spinny enough when compared to Fastarc G1, Donic M1, Victas V15 Extra or Tenergy. Yes, due to its good control, most of the time the ball will land safely when you loop but the lack of spin and power will be easily blocked or counter looped by opponents, negating all your loops.
Conclusion: If you want Rubber that has good CONTROL and slower, this is a good one. If you are a looper and rely mostly on looping to win points, look elsewhere.
