Yasaka Rakza Z Extra Hard
RAKZA Z Extra Hard is the new addition to the highly successful RAKZA series of YASAKA rubbers. 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 top sheet is combined with a harder ”Power Sponge”. The result enables you to make strong spin with a very high arc. Serves and short returns are both precise and sharp.
RAKZA Z rubber – yet another winning combination from Yasaka.

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 Extra Hard (6)
RZEH is good for my forehand. Takes time to get familiar on serve returns as sometimes tends to become too strong. RZEH is heavy. I feel that RZ is more spinny and RZEH has more power. I like both.
Like the little brother but with more speed. Contact feels direct. Counter attack better because of the hard sponge. Needs good legs for this rubber! Service with normal RZ has more spin potential. Rakza Z extra hard is the heaviest Rubber which I know! Overall very good rubber for agressiv Attackers!
I've been using yasaka rakza z extra hard for nearly two months now. When taken right out of the packaging it's pretty tacky, can hold a ball for 1 second, and the tackiness hasn't vanished yet (recently I've been playing 2-4 hours weekly and try to wipe the rubber after every session). Speed is very good, definitely faster than untuned hurricane 3. For me, the speed was somewhat like hurricane 3 (40 degree hardness) boosted with two layers of falco, maybe a bit faster. You can feel the catapult effect when you strike hard, and then you can shoot bullets, although the touch play near the net is excellent as well, probably due to the rubber being pretty tacky. The rubber has many gears. I usually play with chinese tacky rubbers and I'm comparing the yasaka to this kind of rubbers. The sponge of the yasaka is hard but it doesn't feel that hard when playing, it feels softer than untuned hurricane 3 h40, it's more like 39 for my taste. The throw is medium high I'd say, it's quite easy to lift backspin balls. On the whole, I like this rubber a lot, I've been using it on donic dicon whuch is an off- blade, and this setup suits me well. I wanted something hard and tacky, but on the other hand easier to play than the typical chinese rubbers. Recommended!
I bought Yasaka rakza z extra hard 15 days ago, now rubber have broken completely, too dusty during play than DHS Hurricane Neo, weight is too heavy. I recommend not to buy it. I wish to upload photo of my rubber, but there is no way.
Tried both of them Z now. Very similar. Doesnt feel like 58 degrees, first time i looped riddicoulus fast loops, around the net, and sidespinloops that 2 of my trainingfellows just barely saw, when they whistled past them. This rubbers i must say, are outstanding for my pretty agressive spinplay a meter back from the table. Serves spinny as nothing else, not so sensitive for incoming spin. Play both on Kiso-Hinokiblades from Nittaku. I take care of them as i as my children...
