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 (21)
+ The first thing that I need to mention is the spin/tackiness. The spin that you can generate while looping, backspins and serves is crazy. Scooping up a low ball with a loop is really easy, the rubber grips the ball like no other rubber I have tried. My serves have improved a lot because of the additional spin that the rubber provides.
+ Control. My loops have never been this consistent. Even if the rubber is fairly hard it's easy to place the ball where you want it. I would say that Rakza Z is right between really fast rubbers with little control and really slow rubbers with a lot of control. Returning serves and blocking is a lot easier because of the ball placement the rubber offers.
- High throw. Doesn't necessarily have to be a con, but you need to be ready to angle your blade more horizontally because of the tackiness, otherwise your loops will be too high or go too far.
- Speed. If you are looking for a fast rubber then you will be slightly dissapointed. I'm not saying that Rakza Z is a slow rubber, combined with the right blade it can generate good speed, but you will need to hit the ball hard to achive speed for killing shots.
- Weight. A bit on the heavy side, especially if you are using a heavy blade too. For me this is actually a + since my strokes are more controlled when using heavier equipment, not sure why Im putting this under "cons"..
Considering the price, spin, tackiness and control this is an amazing rubber. If you have a controlled attacking style(not that asian robotic full on attacking style) then this is the rubber for you. Serves, loops, sidespins and underspins are beautifully executed by this rubber. Would recommend combining Rakza Z with an all wood blade, since a carbon blade would take away the control.
