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."

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!

The Nittaku Fastarc C-1 feels marginally harder to the touch than the P-1, which is surprising given the softer sponge and lower weight (47 grams, 157 x 150 mm). Although the topsheet and sponge architectures of the C-1 and P-1 are quite different (see the introduction), the two sheets feel very similar to me in gameplay except perhaps that the C-1 is slightly slower and less spinny and produces a less pronounced click on fast hits. The C-1 shares the spongy feel of the P-1 on fast FH shots. For our full review, see this link: http://blog.tabletennis11.com/nittaku-fastarc-p1-g1-c1-s1-table-tennis-rubbers-reviews

It is very versatile rubber with soft feeling. Great speed and great spin. Moreover it has good range of gear, it mean you are able make a drop shot with ease and when you hit hard it can generate enormous speed and spin. For me it a lil bit too soft may be a harder one will be better cuz sometime it bottom out too fast.
If compare to T64, this one is a lil bit harder (but still a lot softer than 05) better gear, and thanks to sligtly tacky surface it grip the ball very well either mechanic or tackiness. Despite it has slightly tackiness topsheet, this one do not that sentitive to spin, let say around Mark V level.

Best forehand rubber... Good consistency in Smash, Loop, Drive, Block, n' Push... Use on Medium Hard Blade...
