So, can we consider R47 as a good replacement for the good old Hexer? Did anyone try both?

I think so, though Hexer has better arc even though it is slower.
I like putting heavy topspin on the ball...

For those who have used R47 extensively: how is durability?

after 4 months I still have tons of spin even though the topsheet colors look faded. I'd say 75 to 80% allright.
Yesterday night I had a new r47 on that violin and it was incredible; it was the 1st time I was playing a new R47 while knowing the combo well. Of course I was expecting that but again after 4 months I can do everything with the old ones.
I want to underline the R47 2.0 felt to me dead and mushy on a Freitas ALC and a Garaydia ALC. Why does that rubber feel so much alive on a 5-ply all wood and not on an ALC? or is it just me?

If I were to guess, I think with the all wood, you have a lot more confidence, feeling, and control, and can put much more of yourself into the rubber, maximizing its potential. Equipment becomes more alive with confidence.

BTW, are you playing with the new plastic balls? Thanks.

I have the same problem: my sp is faster in a clipper than playing with eb7

Most likely the extra flex gives you that impression.
Viscaria FL - 91g
+ Neo H3 2.15 Blk - 44.5g(55.3g uncut bare)
+ Hexer HD 2.1 Red - 49.3g(68.5g 〃 〃)
= 184.8g

For me durability seems to be a little better than avarage tensor.

I also play with this set-up! I've been using it for about 2 weeks! Excellent speed, control, & spin. I use max on fh & 2.0 on bh. Next time I'll buy max for both sides. For being a fast racket it has many gears and very good feeling. I find it easier for serve return and blocking than my usual t05 or mx-p with timo alc. I also find it faster as well. I find it has a medium to high throw angle with my technique. I'm hoping later in the year that prices will drop in Europe.

Can someone compare Rasanter R47 with Stiga Mantra M?

I tried Mantra M briefly and to me it was a bit heavier and slower compairing R47. Both are easy to play and have medium spin potential.

I purchased a red R47 2.0 and have been using it on my forehand. I can only compare it to Donic Baracuda 2.0 because it's the only thing I've used for nearly 2 years. I used this new R57 on the same TB ZLF paddle I've used for years.

Weight ended up being and feeling the same. About 175g for the whole setup with barracuda on the backhand.

First off R47 is a little softer of sponge than Baracuda to the pinch test but it's pretty close. I was a little surprised by that. I expected a bit harder.

I've had good success lifting backspin with it. Initially I was going long with everything but it's just a little adjustment - not much different from just going from a worn rubber to a new one if at all.

It is faster than Barracuda from my experience. The sponge seems to have a little more catapult effect. Much more noticeable during flat hitting which is rare to me as I tend to try and spin everything. The more you can get the ball to dig into the sponge the more power comes out of it.

After a week of playing it feels the same as Barracuda but faster on flat hitting and I think my forehands are now going a bit deeper on to the table but I have no proof of that.

I'm curious about the durability of the rubber. Barracuda always does this flaking thing after 3 months (dry conditions where I live). This will be the #1 factor to decide if I make the switch on the forehand side.

It is too fast for my backhand. I struggle with control and solid contact with my backhand and the last thing I need is to change my rubber to something with more catapult.

Overall this is a decent replacement to the Barracuda series. I would be interested to try the R42 on the backhand and I'm sure with enough practice (or more skill) it would work on the backhand also.

On a side note, it is amazingly jarring to me when making even the smallest changes to my equipment. I tried to cut the rubber so it had a little extra around the edges and the balance was quite different. A new type of rubber (on one side) and more weight was enough to throw my game off balance entirely. I don't know how you EJs do it.

i like the spin:speed ratio. more similar to T05 than other ESN rubbers i've tried

it's too hard out of the pkg, and i was mostly blocking until it broke in, but i found another way is to open the pkg and let it sit for a week. idk if i need to cut it first but in the last 2x, i did cut it and then removed it from my racket after i found it was too hard.

control is great, spin is excellent, plenty of speed. slightly too fast for typical play. basically you can mostly only use fast topspin counters in game unless you get a good opportunity for a power loop. i might use 2.0 in the future or R42 ultramax. but if u play higher level where you're fast counter looping mid-distance, you need the ultramax or boost

boosting R47 works and gives it a giant boost but also drastically reduces rubber life. 

durability is good. previously i was using G-1 as the closest H3 substitute. R47 has greater durability than G-1 and more springy of a sponge closer to tenergy. if they dropped density hardness by like 2.5-3 deg, that would be better imo.

TT11 has added every Rasanter to the "4 for the price of 3" category. It comes to $35.5/sheet right now.

Great review Andy ! Currently using ELS max on my FH , which would have about the same feel but more spin?


R47 is the one in the el-s zone. R's topsheet is quite different, and this is where the distinction comes from. El-s gives easier spin at slower stroke speeds. Harder to get spin out of R47 but this makes it more stable and I got a lot more spin and arc on full strokes. Not sure if the ultramax sponge helps here a bit as well, but I feel that R47 is very accurate and powerful when stringing hard attacks together, whereas el-s gives a low ball on power shots in comparison.

Both good rubbers of course.


Whats the spinny version not to hard to control?
