The Nittaku Fastarc C-1 rubber is "Fast" with an "Arc"! It is the ingenious creation from Nittaku combining a “tension spin” topsheet with a “soft strong sponge”. It takes the best attributes from earlier Fastarc rubbers: G-1 and S-1 and utilizes them to make the new Fastarc C-1. This combination creates incredible grip and speed to allow players to create artistic shots.

Used 2.0 on BH. You need technique to make this perform well, but after that, you will be rewarded. This is like a universal rubber. You can go on the offensive or play defensively when you need to. Nittaku wasn't kidding when they said "create artistic shots."

Wow, never have i played with such accuracy! The spin here is totally wrong. This is made after G1 but is a softer rubber with enourmus spin. Long contact, almost sticky. I saw it was the third most sold rubber in Asia. And that means pretty much the world. Fastarc G1 still in top with Roozena and 05, then CI. Here is the list over most sold rubber in Asia Top Ten: 3 Yasaka and 3 Nittaku among top ten! Butterfly, are we a little bit too expensive maybe??? (:-

This sponge is firm. The topsheet is medium only for a couple of days then it becomes firmer. The topsheet has medium spin. Speed is slow like a sriver. I do not recommend.

This superb rubber is totally underrated here! If you speak German go to Marcel's German tt-spin blog and read his review. He compares it to EL-S and Vega Japan in terms of spin arc. While EL-S seems to be more aggressive, C-1 seems to give quite a bit of stability. From my point of view, you can achieve better angles with C-1 than with, say EL-P. Usually, I play Evolution EL-P, Vega Japan or FX-S on my forehand. While EL-P is too hard for me in certain situations and FX-S is too soft or not powerful enough, Fastarc C-1 is like a good blend between these two and plays like a Japanese rubber. I also think it behaves in a very linear way and placement is better than with other high tech rubbers. You always feel like you are in control of your shots and your shots can also be as vicious as with other powerful rubbers. Am using Tenergy 25FX on my backhand and have tried C-1 in backhand opening loops, too, which also works greatly. However, 25FX will stay on my backhand, because C-1 is a little too aggressive for the job. Highly recommended!

Review it!
