The red rubber is tacky 3,5. The black rubber is tacky 6,5. Durability is extremely long. After 120 hours of training the stickiness drops by half, next 90 hours he shot like a good European rubber.
This rubber has very similar characteristics with its predecessor, the Rising Dragon, but with significant improvements on speed and control. Perfect for FH. I use the max thickness sponge/blue sponge, on a Yasaka Dynamix 17 and it is outrageously awesome. Great for counter-spinning and looping and it produces heavy and consistent spins on serves. Highly recommended for offensive players.
Both Black and Red rubbers are identical. SPONGE IS VERY VERY BRITTLE! USE ONLY SCISSORS OR SCALPEL BLADE FOR CUTTING SO DONT USE BOX-CUTTERS!!!
This is traditional Chinese rubber from Yasaka. Very spinny, hard sponge and surprisingly very light compared to Chinese rubbers! Medium-throw makes blocks dead-easy. All loops and attacks can be loaded with spin. Serves, pushes, chops all very spinny. Flicks, punches, opening loop, loop-drives are very easy to execute. Smashing is the only weakness similar to other Chinese rubbers. Surprisingly very good to use for touch play.
Overall, very very good product from Yasaka. Very good quality. Mostly for Chinese player looking to spend more for more reliable rubber purchases instead of the inconsistent rubber batches from the other manufacturers.
Great spinny rubber with offensive or offensive mnus speed rating. I use black rubber with maximum thickness on the forehand side.
I played the shining dragon in 2.0 mm black on my backhand with Sweden classic blade. Before I played Palio CJ8000 Extreme Spin in Max. Shining Dragon is as controlled as the CJ8000 (chop, conter, block), but provides some more spin and speed for attacking. All in all a spiny, very controlled backhand rubber with enough reserves for attacks. I like this rubber.
