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

Compared with rasant grip
Both wings max on a stratus power carbon.pro: 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!

Good for controlled attackers. Very easy open ups, good spin, feel, dwell time, very short serves (if you want), and lightweight. You can play short balls, but when you take more power and speed, you get it too. Not as agressive as Tibhar tensors (for example MXP), it's moderated. If you want and search this style, you get it. You can hold ball on table everytime. Tried on Killerspin CQ, in 2,0mm.
