The Spin Tension System (STS),which was adopted by the very popular XTEND rubber series, gives 2/3 of the tension energy to spin and 1/3 to speed. XTEND SD uses the same system, but it has now been re-designed and updated to deliver even greater stability. Yasaka have reformulated the top sheet,enabling the durability to be greatly improved. The sponge has also been re-designed to incorporate the much valued qualities of easy handling and enjoyable sound.
Experience the hitting sound, penetrating speed and the new sense of play, easier to use masterpiece "Xtend SD
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 X-Tend SD (4)
Spin: 80 (takes a while to get there) My Raxza 9 felt slightly better 87. Power-loops are fast and a shocker with the speed glue sound.
Feel: Fast and Numbing - way faster than a Raxza 9 hard to feel the grip. weight is definitely felt vs. the SpinArt. Both are 2.0
Consistency: power loops definitely, any other attack plays - no. Forgiving on loop blocks not reactive to incoming fast trajectory spins or power drives.
Gears: Only if you are a seasoned skilled player - takes some text book techniques and adjustment. Big rewards follow
I am a 1500 player and would not recommend this for anyone under a 1900 rating, I believe that level can unlock its rewards with strong consistency and form (text book player). I would call this rubber "Shock and Awe" because when you unlock its potential - that's what your competition and the crowd get. Unfortunately I'm going to have to put it on a slower Blade to see what I can unlock.
I was an Xtend fan "pre-speed-glue", but it couldn't quite do everything that "real" glued rubber could.
Well, for my money, this is "THE" speed-glue replacement. Yeah... spring sponge and all that... Tenergy (and everything like it) was just hard, semi-sticky, fast rubber with a lot of good marketing behind it (in my opinion). This stuff (Xtend SD) actually feels and sounds like speed glued rubber. It's fast (but the sponge doesn't feel like a rock). Optimally, I'd recommend a harder, quicker blade though. It's really spinny, which is important because it has a high throw... But together they make it super-easy to use... which unfortunately the advertising makes that sound like it's for beginners. On the contrary, it's got all the gears, nice spin and touch on serves and near the net, a sweet punch-block and a quick, controllable straight-up block. You can really torque-it-up on counter-loops or quick-off-the-bounce, but it doesn't fly into the stands if you slightly miss-time your swing.
...AND it's got a killer glue sound (particularly on hits and drives)... for those of you who aren't too mature to still like glue sound :)
...not to mention the benefit glue-sound gives you by indicating you've made a good contact (especially when learning/perfecting new shots.
So... that's it... I like it a lot :)
...not that expensive to try either.
