The first rubber to be introduced with Yasaka’s Hybrid Energy system was the Rakza 7, which is highly valued by high class players all over the world. The latest addition to the Rakza family is Rakza 9, which has improved speed characteristics. The surface rubber of Rakza 9 has a newly developed formula/rubber combination. In addition the new sponge is made of a more homogenous material and has larger pores. Rakza 9 is the fastest of Yasaka’s Hybrid Energy rubbers and is suitable for technical offensive players, using both high speed and spin to win the point.

My blade is BTY MMaze. Everything i say here is my pwn opinion and works with my technique. Very nice rubber. Very close to tenergy 05 by hardness when play with top spin, but more linear acceleration in compare with t05 when pushing harder, what i like much. Throw angle is medium high, the trajectory is good and very stable is compare with tenergy 05(t05 is to high sometimes). Requires good technics and fast legs. Spin on serve is excellent - at least same as with t05, but rubber has more linear ball throw which allows to vary with wirst more - i love it. When serving feels like medium hard rubber. Chops are excellent spinny and speedy if you want and very controllable in short game. On top spin attack with high speed, hardness very similar to t05. Ball dwell time feels a bit lower than with t05, but it allows to vary better between sping and smash in compare with t05, though when spin is alike t05 when loop. Requires good technics for lift the ball on opening loop - not as forgiving as t05 on lift, but i'm not concerning about that, though taking into consideration that moment i put 9 of 10 for that. Opening loop if done with good technique - hand and body movement is very controllable, high-spinny and low throw, which is very uncomfortable for an opponent. If returned by block - mostly significantly higher than net and comfortable for next controllable powerfull shot. Which is closer to Xiom Omega IV pro. So if your opponent was not able to counterloop - you will have very good advantage. Counterlooping is nice close to table or far. I found that this rubber requires good push into blade - so mostly will work nice on Forehand. on Backhand i would choose something softer with a bit higher throw.

My opinion is not "Pro". I'm playing table tennis since 1986, but never go to an tournament. My old blade is Schilldcrott - Jean Michel Saive's 1994 with wich I'm still playing. It's more defensive than the new Yasaka Ma Lin Extra Offensive with Rakza 9 rubbers. So and: 1.Good control even you are playing defensive game with this offensive blade. 2. Very good to excellent spin - differs of the game you're playing at the moment. 3.Speed is incredible: -When using a spin it's enough slow. -When you smashing it's like a thunder. Hard velvet sound with Yasaka Ma Lin Extra Offensive. In my combination it's a little bit heavier than Schilldcrott. But this giving you a better control. At this moment Yasaka are really found the good combination.

With the right blade it is a beast. Topspin and counter, looping and counter, pushes, flicks, flat hits can do it all on this rubber. Use butterfly Zhang Jike SZLC, it is a monster.

Very fast and low-throw rubber from Yasaka. Good spin but not less than Rakza7. Does everything just like Rakza7. Serves, chop, push, flick,loop, loop-drive,smash, touch-play all work very well with this rubber. Due to the speed almost all returns land on the white-line. So a much more softer play is required to keep the ball shorter. Same for blocking while it is possible more control is needed from the player. For those players not satisfied with the speed of Rakza7 this rubber is the right stuff.

This rubber has a nice medium arc, the ball doesn’t bounce so high on the other side, which makes more difficult to your opponents to counter. The spin is monstrous, definitely the same as the tenergies, but the control is much better, good sound and a lot of gears. Looping is awesome close or away from table. Very good FH rubber!
