Very good rubber. Generates powerful shots with medium effort. But at maximum effort it loses control. I have used rakzas 7, 7 soft and 9. I have addapted very well to Rakza X Soft in my forehand.
Forehand - Forget it - Mushy as mashed potatoes. Backhand - Actually not the worst, but no speed and gears. You can flick balls, and put them back on the table, but no1 will be surprised with your shots. Very predictable rubber. May be suitable for beginners, but I would prefer something with more gears, speed and spin on BH.
Its a good rubber, fast with a good control and you can generate much spin. Its not for beginner because it has a strong catapult when you play topspin.. its more for intermediate players that want a medium-soft rubber with good dynamic.
It Is not a bad rubber. It is not designed for power and speed.ppayers who have a good technical skills to place ball around the table can have benefits from it. It is durable. Have a nice sound. Fells softy. Nice for openings and lifting low balls. It not too heavy. Overall nice controlled rubber for technical players

Another nice rubber from Yasaka not so fast as rakza x but I must say with this rubber I was able to fix a nice and strong rever including blocking. I was able to play or block from my backhand and with this rubber everything found the way.
Good rubber - found the power and spin great - BUT - it is boat anchor heavy - went back to Rakza 7 Soft.
What a heavy rubber! Just glued Rakza X Soft in Max. thickness on my blade - crazy heavy! Heavier than Tinarc 3 in Max., heavier than Tenergy 05, Heavier than DHS Hurricane 3 series, heavier than anything I've ever tried. I believe according to the physics weight of the rubber creates better momentum on ball contact, but... Just can't believe it is SO HEAVY! Insane! My old 5-ply wood blade weights around 71 grams, and with glued Tinarc 3 Max. and Hurricane H3-50 the racket weight was 171 gram. Changed Hurricane to Rakza X Soft Max., and racket weight increased to 178 grams! Just crazy!
I have used Rakza 7 Soft on my BH for a couple of years. The X soft is a few grams heavier, but other than that, I cannot really feel a lot of difference between the two. If I were to blind test both at random, I wouldn't be able to tell which one was which. That being the case, I'll stick with the 7 Soft and save the weight.
I was try this rubber on TBS yesterday . I was surprise how bad can be this rubber. Is really soft and mushy .The throw is very low wich someone can be fond sharp , but for me was not good. The sponge is not so elastic , so you can`t produce alot of gears.The rubber is self is not so speedy.The top sheet is identical like rakza x , which i don`t like, because is not grippy.With the new ball this rubber is not stable.For me this is the wors rubber on the 2015 !
