Yasaka Rakza Z
For the first time in the RAKZA series, the top sheet has stickiness by employing a new production method. The result is a surface with exceptional grip, enabling phenomenal spin. The result enables you to make strong spin with a very high arc. Serves and short returns are both precise and sharp. The RAKZA Z rubbers are made for attacking players, both close to the table and from half distance.

Yasaka rubbers are steeped in history dating back all the way to 1926. The flagship rubber for Yasaka has been the Mark V. Mark V burst onto the table tennis world stage in the 1970 and 1971 World Championships taking home victory in both competitions. The Mark V is still going strong today and other versions of the rubber have been produced through the following decades.
More recently Yasaka has developed Rakza rubbers which have taken innovation to another level. The shape of the pimples provides a strong balance between spin and speed. Rakza rubbers use Hybrid Energy to provide synergy between top sheet and sponge providing great elasticity for power and control.
Yasaka has many more rubbers in their product line as well. Yasaka rubbers are used by top professionals as well as players of all levels. Be like 2019 World Championship Silver Medalist Matias Falck and choose Yasaka rubbers.

Reviews of Yasaka Rakza Z (33)
Excellent rubber offering great spin. You have to play active strokes due to the hard sponge, otherwise the ball will die a death. Encouragement to use proper technique is only a good thing for an intermediate player like myself, however. Very good for serves and short play, but really shines when executing spinny topspin loops. Highly recommend.
This rubber is on the same page with Butterfly Dignics 09C and Nittaku Sieger PK50. I played with all 3 and so far Yasaka Rakza Z is my winner. It is slower than Dignics 09C and faster than Sieger PK50. It is the tackyest of the 3 and same hardness with the Sieger PK50, the Dignics 09C being the hardest of all. I chose this rubber out of the 3 because these tacky hybrids have a weakness when it comes to pasive blocks but the Rakza Z is not as bad. Active bloks are no problems with any of these rubbers. Rakza Z and Sieger PK50 feels a bit softer than Dignics 09C and it feels better on slow game. Dignics 09C has a more low arc than the other two so it is better far from the table. If you play mostly close to the table the Rakza Z and Sieger PK50 can create some extreme angles and are better in attaking short serves. Once the rubbers are 2 to 3 months old and the initial tack wears off Dignics 09C becomes little frustrating to ply with. Maybe that is mostly because the expectations after paying such of high price for it. So in conclusion Rakza Z is a affordable rubber with characteristics on par with the latest and greatest hybrid rubbers. If your game is based on spin and you use your wrist to add extra spin to your shots and you like to serve spiny this is the rubber I would recommend for you. I, personally like to use the same rubber on both my FH and BH and my review is based on this.
I do not know how to describe this monster of a rubber but i'll try. First let's speak about its pros. Spin: This is almost the same spin as H3 Neo. Flicks? Easy. Loops? Super easy. Serves? No one in my club can receive my serves besides my coach. Speed: With this rubber you can achieve high amounts of speed because of the hard sponge but its tacky so you can also play very good short games with this. It is a bit slower than Omega V Asia. Control: It is very controllable because it is tacky and also you can do blocks particularly easily. If you play it on backhand you can also play passive with this rubber but when it comes to forehand you have to play very active. The only con is that you have to adjust your angle for it to go to the table. 10/10
This is a really good rubber that have so many gears. I used yasaka rakza x, and yasaka valmo rubbers previously. For me z series is better since have less unpredictable catapult effect, and all shots have more feeling and consistency, with more spin and control. Sticky topsheet makes serve and receive/short game much easier and understandable in comparing with tensor rubbers. I also have nittaku sieger pk 50 witch is also nice, but need more time to work on it for better understanding. Overall these rubber can be useful for any type of players from beginner to very good level, you just need to pair it with a right blade - not super stiff, and hard :)
It got sticky to the fingers in the summer. Not a good material. I would not buy it anymore.
