Contrary to the previous review I regard the AK47 Blue to be an excellent all round rubber and I am coming out strongly in its defence. I have this rubber mounted FH on a Stiga Maplewood NCT V and Galaxy T11 and BH mounted on a DHS PG7. It is fast and responsive and will reward good technique with plenty of spin. As you would expect, all this is accompanied by a distinctive sound. The rubber cuts tidily and is light (44g cut). It is not at all tacky so stays clean while giving plenty of spin, for me, with any type of ball. This rubber is surprisingly resilient to the inevitable knocks to the edges during extended practice against my return board. The blue sponge, unlike many Chinese sponges, is soft and porous so, if you are planning to re-use the rubber, it should be removed carefully. I am a serial sampler of inverted rubbers and many have failed to remain mounted to my blades for any significant length of time. However, for me, the AK47 Blue is now a weapon of choice up there among my top 5 favorite rubbers particularly when fitted to the super light and super fast T11. Finally, it represents excellent value for money.

Good bh rubber. plays well on wood blades (in my case - pg7), but i think it will be good on composite as well. ak47blue is less sensitive to incoming rotation. perfect in chops, blocking. catapult switched on with fast strokes. topspin on chops is easy.

Softest sponge there is. Weighs cut about 38 grams (basically nothing). Costs nearly nothing. Amazing rubber for what it costs. Topsheet isn't grippy enough like in good quality euro rubbers of the same sort (like rakza 7 soft which is very similar but many times better)

In short: fantastic rubber. The story: I used to play with Chinese tacky rubbers like yihne, friendship, kokutaku, etc, for 12 months. My favourite was friendship 729 RITZ (hard sponge, tacky topsheet) I use Stiga Classic Allround and I have a solid allround game with a focus on consistency and placement. I was lacking the skill and power to finish a point so rallies would go until opponent made an error. Here comes AK47 Blue. Since I switched, I lost no control but I gained some power and spin. With a little effort, I am finishing the points now due to increased speed and spin. My timing is better and this is, I think, is due to better grip of this rubber so even if dwell time is shorter the strokes are more "forgiving". Loops, drives and smashes are effortless. Pushes and chops require more attention but since the spin is good - still rewarding. This rubber is good FH for beginners and intermediate players IMHO - when fitted on allround blade. I tried on BH but reverted back to tacky 729.
