In Rakza 7 Soft the top sheet is the same as for Rakza 7. The sponge is softer which gives the rubber more sound and built-in speed glue effect. With Rakza 7 Soft the control characteristics are improved. After hitting the ball with top spin the curve of the ball is slightly higher, giving little bit bigger margins in the game. In the short return play, the ball feel is better.

Speed: 93
Spin: 96
Control: 68
Hardness: 37- 42

Pros: good spin, light 44g in max, choice of 1.8/2.0/max, consistent quality, good for blocking, cheaper alternative to 05 fx.
Cons: bouncy in short game, non linear, not very durable, hardness 32 not as powerful as regular rakza 7.

It's my current rubbers after first vari spin, then acuda S3. I play it in 2mm with stiga all around classic. At first i found it very fast and i had to let it down for a while and play with something slower. I think it's an advanced rubber. Now that i brush the ball properly on almost all my shots, i feel that i have a great control with and i can play slow spinny low and loop drive without problem. For me the short game is also good, no problem with it, same for the serve. The only problem i feel now is that it's not hard enough for me now, it bothers me sometimes. To conclude i think it's a very good rubbers and won't be a mistake for anybody. Just you first need to have developed proper strokes and consistency, i think. Enjoy :)

Using 1.8 mm on F/H (black) for many weeks now. Like the extra spin/speed plus feeling this rubber gives. Upgraded from Mk. V and a definite step in the right direction. Has sufficient power to give your opponent something to think about. Agree it can deliver very good backspin when chopping off opponent's drives. Very good rubber for controlled attack, equally good for defence in the right hands. Overall an excellent rubber from Yasaka.

4 march ,2018-Have red (max) on BH of DHS-301 blade.Brilliant-maybe the ''best'' rubber(and I have used a lot of them).No need to waste time trying too many rubber if you are not made for experimenting-blindly buy this.Its spin increases as it gets older(first 2 weeks)-then stabilizes.Good ,consistent spin,great loops,blocks are awesome-I love to block fast loops using my BH-ball shoots away from the opponent.Serves are very spinny. It's reactive to incoming beginners may have issue in receiving.Speed=9.1,spin=9.5(update-15-05-2018)

This is a good rubber I used on my BH at 2.0mm for a short period of time.
The speed is fast but not too fast, control is very good for the speed. This rubber excells on the spin department. Very spinny for serves and topspin.
I stopped using this rubber as it is a bit bouncy for the short game and too soft for me although it is not super soft.
I preffer the normal Rakza 7 for both BH and FH.
You must carefully store this rubber with protective sheets as the edges are easily rip apart after few months of use.
The durability of the top sheet is very good, even after 1 year it is still very spinny.

Used on Timo Ball Forte. Fairly hard blade, good for this rubber. Style play is Attack. Almost three year and going, rubber is still performing as expected.

Great for quick back-hand attack. Great dynamic in generating spin and speed. Control (attack) is very good and fairly consistence 8-9 out of 10. Control touch and feel for the ball leaving the blade is very good (9/10).

Due to the medium tackiness of the sponge, it is difficult to loop on incoming under spin. Can be done but take much more effort and focus. This holds true to all tacky rubbers. Great rubber all-around.

It is a great BH rubber for starters and intermediate players.Also for average players who play with thin flexible blades.This rubber not great for harder and stiffer blades as the rubber will thin out during shots and u loose ur control.I played this on YEO power 7 initially during first few months i did great and the rubber improved my game once my BH got better and better i started exerting more force on BH for looping and counter top spins then the rubber started getting out of control as the ball started sinking into the rubber more and started falling out of the table.This rubber did everything for me great spin ,looping,counter top spins,great close to net play great feel while blocking.But as i improved and was using a harder blade changed to rakza 7 now with great control and power during the game.Problem with this rubber is as ur ratings start improving and u start facing better opponents with great forehands then this rubber doesnot perform well as the ball will sink deeper into the sponge.

Soft. Easy to use. High pitch sound when hit hard. The only problem r7 is durability of rubber, easy to chip on the edge.

Its Throw Angle is less than it is told. It is very effective for counter attack but not against those who are very good choppers.

 External Review for Yasaka Rakza 7 Soft on July 24, 2017
I am a beginner/intermediate looper. I was using Rakza on my forehand and Mark V on my backhand on a Timo Boll Spirit blade. Beginners should focus on feeling and brushing the ball. Rakza is too fast and too soft for this. It is only good for blocking and hitting flat. It increases the dwell time massively. When looping the ball is going too deep into the rubber and is then spat out at a random time without letting me add spin or place the ball where I want. In the short game, you have to be careful not to activate its springiness. On the positive side, its durability and spin are very good. Harder rubbers are better for beginners as they give you better feel and one less thing to worry about (the soft sponges behaviour). My forehand has improved a lot since I moved to a slower, hard Chinese rubber (Galaxy Mercury II, cost me 3.7). My forehand wasnt improving and now, 2 months with the new rubber, I can see that Rakza was the problem. I cannot recommend the soft version of Rakza I am afraid. Too expensive for what it offers. Try the soft version of Galaxy Mercury II if you are looking for a soft rubber.

Personally I prefer it in FH in rigid and fast woods, high draft angle, easy topspin in FH, I tried it in BH but I did not like to block because of the angle of shot, fast rubber but with a lot of control, soft construction and good quality , excellent to block and attack, pleasant sensations, great spin, only excellent qualifications for this yasaka product.

One of the best rubbers for backhand in order to dominate rallies along with tenergies and Nittaku Hammond pro beta (best for flat hits). YR7S is a looping machine providing great control and heavy spin when required. Speed very much depends on blade's hardness and offensiveness. Light too 43 grams cut standard size.

This is my favorite BH ribber on fast blades now. I 1st tried it on my Xion Zetro Quad FH and it created enormous side spin that my opponent kept missing it wide. It was so easy to play with excellent control due to slower speed(not slow though). I flip to the BH side and also got great results. My flicks are so easy to do and the service return was very easy and secure. Even the speed was slower than my other rubber but the spin & control more than made up for that. I highly recommend this rubber on faster blades.

My ratings: Speed=8.5. Spin=9.5. Control=9.5. Weight=43.5g(cut to 159x152 bigger than the blade so the actual weight should be around 42g on 157x150). Sponge Hardness=4(med soft). Throw Angle=med high. Consistency=10. Overall=9.5
