Yasaka Rakza 7

Yasaka, using mainly natural rubber gum 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!

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 before the introduction of the 40+ ball. 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.
