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.

Using (both sides) in 2mm with Tibhar Stratus Power Wood blade. Great combination to learn and practice technique. Rubber is much slower than the Xiom Vega Europe and Hexer+ I've tried on this blade. So I wouldn't say it's "fast" as others have said here. Throw angle is very slightly higher than both, with similar control to XVE. Makes up for lack of speed with higher spin, which is nice. Most players would probably like it on their BH, but if you want to improve technique it's great for FH also. Has a great sound with many blades due to it's softness. Reminds me of my first setup (in 2006) Primorac OFF- with BTY Flextra both sides, although that was way slower than TSPW with YR7S both sides.
I used Rakza soft for forehand 3 monts on samsonov carbon and there are few people that said that im very consistetnt and precise for all strikes.. "like im puting ball on table with hands" i changed it because my club buyed me pair of joola maxxx 450 .. witch have lower throw and its faster...
its very light rubber, and sponge is sensitive..
one of the best players in club (blocker) use it for forehand, and he have bad forehand tehnic - so its very forgiving rubber...
2.0 fh and bh on timo boll spirit. Love it. Can't go wrong with this combination.
Can there be a better rubber... DO NOT AGREE WITH SPIN SPEED CONTROL RATINGS GIVEN HERE... my take is:
Control 9.7 (There is probably no other rubber matching to control offered by this rubber)
Through angle is medium-high
Durability of top surface is exceptional. 7 months old rubber acts like new.
Wonderful looping... I start using it on FH for its precision. WIll soon have both sides with the same rubber.
I played with Rakza 7 Soft on BH for two years until recently when I realized its wonderful grace on the forehand as well. This is the rubber which would overtake every other rubber in past and future. Very good for top spin play, blocks, chops or what you want to hear... this is a truly great rubber from Yasaka.
I have played with Rakza 7, Rakza 9, Tibhar Evo MXP, Mark V and many other rubbers... but trust me, Rakza 7 soft is one thing which cannot be compared with any other rubber. Its just so unique and awesome.
Recommended on FH looping with OFF to OFF+ blade. Great spin with above than average speed. The control of this rubber is a bit hard due to high throw but it is managable somehow.
Paring with Xiom Katana Platinum on FH (max) and it feels great. Even though I changed to thinner blade because it offers more control on backhand side.
I played about 4 months with this rubber. I am a defender so I chooce the 1.8 version on my fh. This rubber has the best spin I've ever seen, but its a also fast for defending...Good for loops, topspins and serves, difficult in chops and pushes..Another thing is that after 4 months of using (3 times a week) now its not so spinny and the edges are easily damage. Overall good rubber for allrounder or offensive players.
i have this rubber on 1.8 and 2.0 on a dhs pg 7 blade feels and plays good ,can flip.loop,smash and serve wiyh great ease and spin,onli problem i have sometimes is blocking but i guess i need more practice to get use to it,only played 2-3 hours with this paddle.this rubber can do well on mid distande ,good luck to all!
After EJ'ing a lil bit around this has become my permanent backhand rubber. Very good controlled offense, awesome opening loops, smashes and chops. This rubber acts a little differently when brand new, so give it a good 4 to 5 hours of use and then the real performance of this rubber kicks in. Initially it seems to me very sensitive to incoming spin but turned out it is not. Not as soft as people would think (because of its name), I would say tad harder than Tenergy 05FX. Very good find!!
