I got this in red, max sponge. It creates a LOT of spin, but has a medium throw angle. It may seem hard to play with at first because it feels Chinese, but with a low throw. The sponge is Japanese, and it feels nice after being broken in. I used mine for 10 months, ~500 hours, and it still worked pretty well towards the end of that time. It serves well, but not at the level of hurricane. It is tacky, but not as much as other Chinese rubbers. However, the Japanese sponge allows the ball to sing in to the topsheet and sponge enough to create extremely spinny loops and pushes. It is medium fast. I'd say it is similar in speed to Rasant Grip, slightly more speed than Xiom Vega Europe. It also has a lot of touch and control. A very good do it all rubber, it is not fast enough to prevent you from being able to play a slow game, and it has enough top end speed for an all-out offensive game or an effective put-away shot. However, I would think it is more suitable for offensive players- if you want the spin and not the speed, try something like Spinlord Marder. Yasaka Rising Dragon is for those who want to play with maximum spin, a good amount of speed, but who don't want to use a completely Chinese rubber. It is also good for those who generally play offensively but vary their game and the speed a lot due to it's touch and control.

Just bought this to try out of sheer curiosity. Feels just nice. Using this as FH rubber with my Yasaka Extra Offensive. Very nice tacky rubber with sponge hardness that's just nice.. You can drive it, return blocks and spin it real well. Do not go for this if you are looking for tensor type feel.. It will slow down your speed a little due to the tackiness

not as tacky as some other brands offers, spin machine , speed is above average but not uncontrollable, the rubber has low rebound like tacky rubbers(the ball doesn't bounce much after hitting) hence good for serves and touch shots, needs proper technique to take advantage of spin and speed, recommended on fast blades,since the rubber has some tackiness you might have to practice serve return, good for blocks as well, it just removes the speed and spin of your opponent and adds your speed and spin. My choice for forehand.

I just got this rubber, Max thickness and am using it on a Yasaka Gatien Overdrive Metal Blade, yeah its an old blade but the Yasaka Overdrive is the same blade.
Compared to the Xiom Omega 5 tour Max, its a bit slower, more spin, more control, lower throw angle.
Very good for reversing opponent spin.
I think it would have been nicer if it had a bit more power, but its always either control vs power. Control is excellent. Pretty much can loop anything. Good at looping at the top of the bounce and great for flips, thx to the extra control.
Not recommended for beginner to intermediate level players, must have a well developed strokes.
