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.

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.
I have a friend that use this rubber and I am going to give a perspective from the other side of the table. We play togehter 3 times a week and he is changing his rubbers many times during the seson. He is older then me. I am 19 yo and he is like 50+. He is not old, but he is older and his age is not a positive thing when you have long rallys and play side to side. Anyhow because his not so fast and agressive he is playing with controll and spin. He change from Rakza X to Z and i am feeling a big difference. Is is more comfortable and chill when he plays and the trust his rubber. Before hi was playing agressive and missed a lot of point because of that. But now he is getting point because the spin and his placement.
I think this rubber is for people who like to control the table and play with spin and placement. You dont usely open first but you can do if your footwork is good that day. You like to block and place the ball one/two times before you finish the ball. Perfect for a little bit slower pople. (With all the respect)
Rakza Z is a very fine hybrid rubber with sticky surface rubber and elastic sponge. It beats all other hybrid rubbers that I tried. It is a little more tacky than BTY D09c and feels softer. It is easier to play than D09c. Rakza Z has the right amount of tackiness. You will not feel the difference if you switch from ESN rubbers like MXP. You can still serve long with this rubber like a T05. The tackiness help in serving short, short return, and small stroke for slow spinning loop. And you do not need to boost it. This rubber rocks.
