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.
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. T64 is way better for backhand because it wont throw the ball flat out as often as razaka 9 does. Which is why I think due to its price, this rubber is totally not worth it. I do not agree with the ratings, a rubber must have balance, and this one is lacking a good arc, the ball flies off too flat. Speed must have spin to back it up otherwise there is no control, especially if it has a low throw and high speed, spin is even more important otherwise there are severe limitations. At an advanced level, cant really do much with this rubber due to the imbalances as I mentioned.
Nothing out of the ordinary. Average spin, not so spinny on serves. Fast, but I've seen much more faster (MX-P, S1 Turbo, Agrit Speed). Medium to medium low throw so good for looping close to the table but not so special farther from mid distance. Not forgiving, again due to low throw, so timing and footwork has to be good. Control is very good, I'll give it that. Good for flat hitting, but so is my 802-40 on Mystery III sponge, so again nothing that would make it stand out. I suggest, for the same price (or cheaper) you can get many other faster and spinnier rubbers. Better stay away from this
Using this rubber for few hours on Tibhar SPW. Previously I had Andro Rasant and changed for Rakza9. Compared to Rasant it feels harder and throw is a bit lower. Few first balls went off the table. Feels hard but control is damn nice, i wasnt able to do very short pushes with rasant as i can with this rakza. Compared to Rakza7 soft (which i have on bh) Rakza9 is much faster.
I may write more after playing more with this rubber
This rubber has a nice medium arc, the ball doesnt bounce so high on the other side, which makes more difficult to your opponents to counter. The spin is monstrous, definitely the same as the tenergies, but the control is much better, good sound and a lot of gears. Looping is awesome close or away from table. Very good FH rubber!
