Good for speed, spin is lacking, The throw and spin is way too low to make any good use of it on forehand. But more manageable on backhand though some inconsistencies, over rated in my opinion
this rubber is good for building style used it for a little time
good for back hand rather then forehand quite smooth pick of any spin
Fast as can be. Flat hits are easy, does not have chinese style arc., plays the table to the white line, means you have to put more effort to make it arc to hit the table on faster blades. would recommend on all + off - blades with med flex. Really good spin, average euro rubber with max speed and spin, requiring very good touch on a slower blade to get max efficient speed to actually play with intentional speed. Overall, very durable, fast, spinny and would recommend to people who want tenergy like playing or more for $25 less.
Sponge and rubber is different from rakza 7. Still a good rubber for the price like acuda.
Yasaka claims that Rakza 9 is the fastest among their Rakza range and this rubber has lived up to that badge. With proper technique and adequate skill, this rubber can produce unreal speed and extreme power to your shots. Great for forehand. I have this on Yasaka Max Carbon 3D and it is amazing. Great for looping and flat hits, throw angle is low so your opponents can't easily return your shots. The sponge is medium-hard and the built quality is excellent as it was made in Germany. Highly recommended for offensive players.
Very fast and low-throw rubber from Yasaka. Good spin but not less than Rakza7. Does everything just like Rakza7. Serves, chop, push, flick,loop, loop-drive,smash, touch-play all work very well with this rubber. Due to the speed almost all returns land on the white-line. So a much more softer play is required to keep the ball shorter. Same for blocking while it is possible more control is needed from the player. For those players not satisfied with the speed of Rakza7 this rubber is the right stuff.
Wonderful rubbers for forehand in my opinion. The only downside is that they shrink like hell even while on the blade!! Otherwise very powerful and loop friendly rubber.
Been using the rubber for almost 2yrs now. I can say thst i loved the rubber because of the different variables it can achieve. I can do variations of serves, block & counter top & side spins and lastly do some side spins near & away the table. D only things thats missing is the power of how it can do a chop. I think maybe because of it not having a tacky top sheet. As for my game play im giving it a 8/10 having 10 the highest rate.
As a big fan of Yasaka I want to try a faster rubber combined with a faster blade YASAKA GOIBAIO 5. I have this racket with rakza 9 on forehand and mark v hps on the backhand and I am very satisfied. I have this racket for the last 10 days and even is very early to tell yet this is some observations. Racket was a lot faster than my previous and the first 2-3 days I was struggling not to keep the ball as I was able to do it but I wasn't able to hold the blade as this time from straight I went to anatomic bell type. After the 4-5 day I was able to get used to hold it but also to play better. It would take me a few days or weeks to get used to it but I believe with this blade and with this rubbers I ll be able also to move forward faster. As for the rubbers very fast and very strong hit and for the spin you ll have to be a little technical if you want to succeed with a lot of speed.
