Yasaka Rakza Z (47-52°) and Rakza Z Extra Hard (52-57°) rubbers are coming out in 2020! Both rubbers are made in Germany.


Life is too short for defensive play.

Do you intend to test them? Also do you know if there are several versions of each one (as in 47, 50 and 52° for the Z)? Just asking because 5° seems like a rather large variance in sponge hardness for a single rubber...or has Yasaka not yet finally decided on the final hardness degrees?

There's no way they will state a range of hardness for a single rubber.

I think we will soon see more really hard rubbers from ESN, they have recently produced some sponges that still retain good elasticity despite the hardness

I have always said this before that rubbers are going beyond the 50 degree hardness level for the modern game.

I don't quite understand what 47-52 and 52-57 degrees means. Is it an approximate value?
