I had trouble getting a rubber with hardness and medium speed, high twow that will replace my andro rasant in FH (this out of production) try with thibhar elp too fast, very direct, thibar els very fast and heavy, t05 fx very fast, without control, difficult blocking, probe fast arc s1 and I am impressed, everything is good, blocking, topspin, insensitive to spin, WOW, it will be my rubber for many years, I hope it does not stop producing.Update, seems delicate but it is quite the opposite, very resistant and durable, polyvalent rubber works well in FH and BH, quite fast, impresses the durability, insensitive to spin, medium angle.

I've been using this rubber on my back hand for a couple years now. Unlike what the "S" stands for in its name, it's not very fast. However it's got consistency and control unlike any other rubbers, which is the reason I'm using it for my backhand. It has a quite a soft sponge with grippy and soft topsheet that grabs the ball and produces a ton of spin. For me the softness doesn't fit my play style for the forehand but is perfect for the back. The downside is that the topsheet is brittle. The edge starts cracking and breaking after 3~4 weeks of use and the rubber itself is good for about 6~8 weeks. TT11 has it for "4 for 3" deal as well as tt-japan has it for a pretty low price. For the price you can buy it's a steal even with lower durability! Still lasts longer than Tenerygy.

Unlike it's big brother, Fastarc G1, the Fastarc S1 put a smile on my face the first day I used It. It is fast, has lots of grip, generates very good spin. As Vega Pro reminds me of a tamed T05, the Fastarc S1 reminds me of a tamed T64. One of the best performance/price ratio rubbers. I use It on bh RPB.

Fastarc S-1 is my go-to BH rubber. I'm not claiming that this is the best rubber for BH ever, I'm just saying it's the rubber most suitable to my playing style and skill level. The topsheet is soft, not tacky but grippy. The sponge feels medium soft. The rubber is dynamic and can generate a lot spin, combined with a medium high throw angle and plenty of control. These characteristics make this rubber super easy to play with. The best part is that this rubber is cheaper than most tensor rubbers. I would rate Fastarc S-1 as 9.5 out of 10, when considering it's good performance and great value.
