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!

Pros: high spin possible, 45g in max, available in 1.8/2.0/max, hardness 38, half price of tenergy.
Cons: too fast, less spin than tenergy 05, non linear, top sheet a bit too soft.
High speed and spin with great control. I'm an allround player I liked it's control but it's too fast for me. My first 2 hours playing so far and I hit a lot too long shots. Because of it's speed, I'm not very happy with blocking. Very good to open the game after backspin shots due to it's high spin, very good on spiny offensive hits. Excellent rubber for aggressive players!!!
This is a fantastic rubber, i use 2.0mm on german korbel. The rubber is fast, short pushes , short game, mid distance loop is super.i would not recommend on very hard or very stiff blades as the rubber is medium hard.
The bouncy short game issue with tensors and tenergy is not here. This is not a tensor rubber
Hard medium, medium angle, high spin, little reactive to incoming spin, good construction quality, consistent, good in blocks, I like more in FH than BH, grabs the ball, high control, is not very fast, really light compared to other rubbers, good feeling, very good
Great allround rouber with enough potential for attack. I am playing razka 7 in 2,0 mm on BH. I was looking for a substitute for my addidas p7. Interimswise I played shinning dragon 2,0 mm on my BH. Shinning dragon is good, but razka 7 is even better. I do have good control in block, conter, chop although the razka 7 is quite fast. Topspin against backspin is good. I think I found my preferred BH rubber.
I'm using Rakza7 2.0mm on my FH on a Nittaku Acoustic blade.
This rubber is very fast and veeeery spinny, especially on serves. The rubber is still pretty controlable.
The sound is amazing too.
Tried many offensive rubbers and I can not find anything better for the price.
It's a good rubber especially if you used it with long pips, because its high spin.
Great tenergy 05 alternative with exceptional close to net play. wonderful at blocking and receiving spinny serves .U can make a lot of spinny serves plays like a tenergy 05 with less speed but more spin and great control.Initially started using on the forehand and as my forehand got better and better transitioned from medium hard to hard rubber battle 2 and started using this rubber on BH where it performed very good. Highly durable rubber great grip on polyballs excellent for BH. u can play close to table far away from table with same response.My blade is YEO Power 7 hard blade but flexible one with great looping ability.This is my match set up battle 2 on FH and Rakza 7 on BH. Works great for me
once rakza 7 wears off will try the shining dragon on the BH.
DEC ,2017,Brilliant rubber....most players in my club now use this.Consistency is the middle name of this rubber.Started using it on the Recommendation of my friend .Takes few hrs to show full potential.
Update-This is my go to rubber now.Great in fast loops(medium arc ,much less than Tenergy 05),flat hits,serves,returns.Its mind blowing in blocks,when I stand close to the table and block people ask me if I am using ''anti-spin rubber''-as the control is amazing.Update(17-June-2018)-using it again on Rossi Emotion Joola blase....pushing/chopping is amazing,pushes are just too fast,deep if you wish and very low.Best push I ever did with any rubber.I use it on BH,on FH I use Tenergy 05.
Got two R7 recently and they are really different from the old R7, less power/control and the sponge pore seemed to be bigger...not sure what's happened to R7 but I'm concerned about the quality control and don't think I will come back to it again.
This is my favorite backhand rubber now, better than the soft version. Red 2.0mm weighs @ 46.1g cut, Speed=8.8. spin=9.5. control=9(BH). grip=9.2. throw=med. hardness=6.5. Flicks=easy & spinny. feel=solid. overall=9.5. Serve return has good control, feel & spin. easy to lift backspin. better than R7 Soft. Best rubber for BH on most blades
This was my favorite rubber for a long time. It's a great rubber that does everything really well with great control and consistency. I had it paired with my Nittaku Acoustic 5 Ply wood blade on both the FH and BH sides and felt they were an excellent match as a developing 2 winged looper. Even by today's standard I consider it to have excellent spin and good speed. While it can be used either on the FH or BH sides I think it is slightly better on the BH side with a rubber with a slightly higher throw angle on the FH side. The throw height I would consider to be medium. Not as spinny or good at looping as Tenergy 05 but stronger in the short game and a more balanced rubber. Overall an excellent attacking rubber for offensive players who value control in their game.
Rakza 7 is the better combination between speed and spin. I`m penholder and used a RSM G Max plus Rakza 7 and this is a genuine fast-and-spinny offensive combination. Great for loops and aggressive play, very nice! After trying with various rubbers T64, T64fx, T80, Xiom Omega IV Pro and Europe, but after 3 month with Rakza i believe is better in everything from my point of view. I`m very happy with Rakza 7.
At 2mm on an all wood blade, the ball contact is extremely pleasant, and extremely accurate at low and high speeds. You can get this for 4H at max thick or 2mm for BH and definetely teach any tenergist a few lessons. GREAT FEEL, Great rubber. Up there with Xiom Sigma IIPro, Ten 05/ 05fx, and all the greats, at great price too.
