Mounted Rasanter R42 on the FH side of my Xiom Omega Tour as a replacement for Nittaku Fastarc G-1, which had good speed and spin, but did not give me the dwell time I wanted. R42 did the trick. It's as spinny as the Adidas P7 on my BH side, plenty fast enough, and gave me a bit more time on my stroke. I was anxious to embrace a new "plastic ball" rubber, but the idea of making my paddle too heavy was a deterrent. I was pleased to find that the uncut sheet of R42 in 2.0mm weighed in at 61 grams. In comparison, Fastarc G-1 is 65g, Xiom Omega 5 Europe is 70g, Tibhar El-S is 71g, and Tibhar MX-P is 73g! That meant a weight savings of 3-8 grams mounted! I have rated this rubber's weight as light for this reason. I really need to play this for awhile to see how it holds up, but first time out, I found it easy to play, not requiring any adjustments in my stroke.

Rasanter R42 ultramax is light with soft sponge, great for liftibg backspin balls. Only has this rubber wirh minimum use so can't comment on durability for now

Nice rubber. Compared with rasant grip Both wings max on a stratus power You can easily flip short serves. Top are very easy from close to the table to mid distance. You can aply more spin with r42 than rgrip I dont feel it very sensitive to incoming spin, just like rasant grip. Playing short is not that hard.Con: Blocks have low strajectory I was surprised many of mine go to the net and its harder to put spin on serves than with rasant grip. R42 suits very well with pball. A pleasure to play with. Cant talk about durability, played only 1month with (12hours/w) but still like new. Good to mention that its very Light!! You dont feel heavyhead even with max songe!

Difficult for me to write a review, it has been announced to be as much effective as tenergy 05 and more. Truth is, the throw angle is higher than the rasant, and the catapult effect is here no need to say. it's not for the beginner. This rubber put and take a lot of effect , so you have to adapt your way to block. Same for the lighted start, (banana here). I play it in BH and Ternegy 05 fx if FH. It's a brand new rubber, fresly put on my blade (jonyer-h from 1980, wich has been treated by a well know gentleman) , hinoki so, quite hard under the tender of the rubber (did i say that it is lighter that the rasant ?) I will update this review the more i get to play with, because i know that Andro put lots of efforts during its campaign to promote this rubber. (sorry for bad english, not my native language have a good day)

Review it!
